Spring in the Parlor {2014}


Come on into the parlor and take a look at the decorations ready for Spring/Easter.


On the entrance mirrored chest, the concrete clam shell not only holds shells but eggs.



On the secretary, a vintage postcard bunny dish and a foil bunny add just a little touch for the upcoming season.





Two bunnies in a washed brown-grey color rest on the lower mantle. I purchased the bunnies new this year at Gordon’s of Metairie.





Another foiled bunny sits inside a cloche on the accent table.



The parlor sets a spirited tone for the Spring season to come.

Happy Birthday to my “favorite godchild, Henri. Paran Ron hopes you are spoiled rotten today (like today would be any different from any other day).





Love ya… BIG! BIG! xo

A Spring Parlor, y’all!


  1. Love the addition of your fabulous eggs and bunnies. Everything looks so beautiful as usual.

  2. Hi Ron and I wish a happy birthday to your handsome little god child! Oh, your Easter touches are so pretty. Love your creative clam with shells and eggs! Those are some mighty fine rabbits on your mantel - which I just love. You have a very lovely home. I'm glad you heard me saying hello. :)
    Be a sweetie,

  3. Love all your Spring vignettes--I especially love the foil bunnies. Happy Birthday to Henri! Have a great day! xoxo

  4. Gorgeous!! I Iove the new blog design!!! Will reply to your email today :-) xoxoxo

  5. You never cease to create wonderful vignettes! I adore the bunnies you obtained in Metairie (our youngest has a friend from there, they met when she came to live with her Aunt here after Hurricane Katrina for awhile). Love the addition of the eggs to the clam shell. I need to decorate mine (it's been empty since the holidays). And, Happy Birthday to Henri. What a handsome boy!

  6. The large view of your front room is beautiful. A room should be interesting before you place a stick of furniture in it - and your house fits that perfectly. Of course, all your furnishings and accessories make it twice as lovely. Big ole' rabbits? Yes,yes! I need to find some!
    (cute kid, too.)

  7. Looks beautiful and ready for spring! Have a great week.

  8. Ron, it looks like spring at your house. Such lovely vignettes and I adore the bunnies. The addition of eggs to the clam shell is creative and so you. Your parlor is lovely with all it's fine details. Happy Sunday and do come by to visit...from your friendly blog designer....Check out your new contact button...xo

  9. I ♥♥♥ the "Alice In Wonderland" hares with the old books.

  10. I always love your season to season tours. You have the best decorations.

  11. Happy Birthday to your Godchild Henri! Another March (Aries) baby! Mine is tomorrow! Those new rabbits on the mantle are the best. Love the bunny under the cloche and the glass tray. Hope your Sunday has been glorious!

  12. I covet your chandelier. And, be very careful in Gordon's -- it's a very dangerous store!!

  13. Love the new design. It is so you..............classic and elegant.

  14. Happy Birthday to that handsome little man!! Love the Spring touches in your Parlor Ron...beautiful as always!

  15. Ron- I love your little signs of Easter. That vintage postcard is adorable and the eggs and shells combination is great. Happy Birthday to your sweet Henri. xo Diana

  16. I love your gray rabbits and the eggs in the oyster shell.
    Happy birthday to Henri!!

  17. Ron- I also meant to tell you that I love the antlers around the acorn!

  21. Happy spring, Ron, and happy birthday to your precious godchild. Really like your new rabbits on the mantel.

  22. Ron, the parlor looks amazing! You just always find the best accents and accessories! Can you come and decorate my home?

  23. So, so lovely! I am digging that coronal light fixture! What a great statement piece, and that!


  24. As a new follower I must comment on your mantle. I have the exact same mantle (one of 6 in our house!) except ours is natural, unpainted. May I ask how tall your ceilings are? I rarely decorate the "upper" shelf of ours but yours looks wonderful. Our ceilings are 11 feet tall, are yours? (It just never entered my mind to decorate that area, except at Christmas! And I'm envious of those bunnies!!! Vicki in Louisville KY

  25. Very, very pretty! I love that you added eggs to the clam shell. I hope Henri had a blast for his birthday!


  26. Great the clam shell and the eggs.


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
