Add a Fresh Vignette with a Spring Bird Cage Pinterest Challenge
Are y’all ready for the season of showers, flowers, and more hours (in the day that is)?! Well, let’s start getting ready by learning how to add a fresh vignette with a spring bird cage Pinterest Challenge. (That’s a mouthful!)
ADD A FRESH VIGNETTE WITH A SPRING BIRD CAGE PINTEREST CHALLENGE
While the title of this post may be long, this post will be short!
If you are coming from my dear friend Paula’s blog at Sweet Pea, I’m am just so blessed you are here! Don’t you just love the way Paula adds vintage items to her spring centerpiece with such an elegant touch?
Today, Paula and I and 16 of our blogging buddies are sharing some fun spring decor ideas using bird habitats! Be sure to take a look at all the inspiration at the end of this post because today is the…
BIG thanks goes to our hostess, Cindy from County Road 407 for putting our Pinterest Challenge together.
And, if you are new to the Pinterest Challenge, it’s all about one inspiration photo, a group of bloggers, and each of us putting our own twist on the inspo image!
Spring Bird Cage Pinterest Challenge Inspiration
This week’s inspiration comes from sweet Doreen at Hymns and Verses. Her spring centerpiece is just a breath of fresh air, isn’t it?
So many inspiring spring elements to choose from, but what really sings to me is:
- Pretty blue and white bird house (isn’t it grand?!)
- Spring florals
- Mason jars
- Nest with bird eggs
- and, or course, that cute little blue and white vintage plate with a sweet nesting bird
Be sure to hop on over and take a look at all the photos and inspiration at Hymns and Verses.
A Small Twist on Grand Inspiration
Doreen really did create a gorgeous and grand centerpiece for her spring table!
Here at My Wee Abode, I often have to live large in a small home! So, I decided to scale things down a bit for this Pinterest Challenge.
Adding a little spring vignette to my tiny spring-time patio was the perfect place to put my own twist on the inspo photo!
Bird House or Bird Cage?
One of the best ways to decorate on a budget is to shop your home. And guess what? This black bird cage was already in my stash.
Don’t you think a bird cage is a great spin on a bird house? Of course, I couldn’t agree with your more!
This Is For the Birds…
The nesting bird plate was depicted using my sweet little bird statues (that I have used over and over) along with some green American moss.
And adding a bit of spring greenery with ‘seeds’ adds to the nesting aesthetic.
Mason Jar Vase
In the inspo pic, you can just see the mason jars to the left. Isn’t that such a pretty way to display spring flowers?
So… I cut some of my garden ranunculus and stock and popped them into a mason jar that I grabbed from the cupboard! Easy peasy… and SOOOO pretty!
I’m so enjoying the fresh flowers from my container garden… and the stock’s fragrance is light and sweet!
Spring Bird Cage Pinterest Challenge with Speckled Eggs
And last but not least, using a bit more American moss and adding a few spring-colored speckled eggs to the bird cage was inspired by Doreen’s nest with the eggs!
If you haven’t used American moss before, try it! It’s super easy to form into nests and works well in floral arrangements!
Add a Fresh Vignette with a Bird Cage to Your Spring Decor
What about you? Would you like to add a tiny spring vignette to your home? Are you team bird cage or bird house?

What a pretty grouping! I adore that you used a birdcage. A truly sweet tweet!
Thanks, Laura… appreciate the love!
Julie, I love Doreen’s birdhouse, but I will join you in team birdcage. Love using the cake stand to put the birdcage on. Your pretty flowers add the perfect pop of spring color. I love moss, too, and always use it to finish off flower arrangements. Have a great day, sweet friend.
Thank you so much, Carol… it was fun hopping with you, as always!
Gorgeous vignette. The birdcage is such a great idea and looks amazing filled with eggs. Your cute little birds surrounding it were the perfect addition.
Thanks, Marty… this was a fun challenge that didn’t take a lot of time for me… perfect for this season in my life (and my mom’s 😉 ).
Julie, I love this tiny vignette! You and I both used bird’s eggs in our cages/lantern! And I think our birds are part of the same flock 😉 I love that you were able to use fresh flowers in your display, there’s nothing like them!
I noticed the same thing, Cindy. Too funny! Yep, I’m really enjoying my fresh flower garden… it’s my first real one!
Julie I love your use of the birdcage with the pretty eggs! They are perfect and so suit your home and decorating style. I love it! xoxo
Thanks, Stacy… I love the whimsy that they added to the porch!
I love your idea of the birdcage filled with eggs! It looks so fresh and spring-y and perfect for Easter!
I’ve pinned this to my Birdhouses Pinterest Board!
I’d love it if you’d like to share at the Sundays on Silverado Pinterest Board!
Niky @ The House on Silverado
Thanks so much, Niky! I’ll def check out your board! Hugs and hearts, sweet friend (can’t wait to try your new chocolate/coffee scones!)
Your version is lovely, Julie! I’m not familiar with American Moss and definitely will pick some up the next time I am out shopping. You made the perfect nest with it for your bird and another for the nest inside your birdcage. It’s wonderful that you have spring annuals to pick to use to make a beautiful bouquet to enjoy.
Thanks, Paula… I’m definitely enjoying my little flower garden!
i love your birdcage and the bird statues! I need stone birds! Love the florals against the black birdcage. Everything pops against the inky black birdcage. Great job! This is beautiful! laura in Colorado
Thanks so much, Laura… you are always such an encouragement! Hugs!
I’m saying both…birdhouse and birdcage! Love your small version, Julie. And yes, that kind of moss is a great texture and such a pretty green color!
Thanks, Lora… I think I’m team both, too! (I’d never seen green American moss before!)
Thanks so much, Cheryl!
Julie, my favorite part of your twist is that you styled your vignette on your porch. Your birdcage looks so pretty mixed in with your spring blooms. Love the pretty bird nest too. BTW your photos are gorgeous!
Well, you know we bloggers love it when someone loves our photos! Thank you so much… You made my evening! BIG hugs!
I love it Julie. Simple yet adorable and easily put together.
Kari @ Me and My Captain
Thank you, sweet friend. So good to see you in Blogland again!
Yep, I’m ready for the longer and warmer days! Yep, your bird cage challenge turned out beautiful and yep, I’m dying to get some ranunculus! The colors are fantabulous! Thanks for being in this “for the birds” challenge. I wish I would have used a birdcage! So cute.
Thanks you, our talented hostess! I loved your white birdhouse… so pretty and so you! Always glad to take part!
Julie, I miss scented stock and ranunculus!! They grew so well in California but not so much here in the humidity of Texas. Maybe I’ll try growing some from seed, though. 🙂 I love how your spring vignette turned out and it looks lovely on your front porch! <3
Happy springtime to you,
Thanks, Barbara… I only learned about stock a few years ago, so it was fun to put in one of my containers. They usually attract bees, but mine haven’t so far (I’m allergic). Thanks for the kind words!
Gorgeous vignette and photos, Julie! You always prove that you don’t need a big space to have a beautiful home, inside and out. Your birdcage is absolutely charming, and those flowers…sigh! I’m dying to get my hands on some pretty flowers like yours. Pinned!
Thanks, dear friend… I saw the fresh flowers in your home tour! Lovely! And your photos are magazine worthy!
I just love that your vignette was on your outdoor patio, Julie. Very springtime! The birdcage filled with eggs, the pretty flowers…I just loved it all. What a great take on the inspiration photo.
Thank you so much, Kim… that is indeed a huge compliment coming from you! I’m thrilled with my ranunculus!
I love that you used a bird cage! I always see pretty ones at the antique shops and want to buy one for my spring decor, but never pull the trigger. Now I’m really wanting one! All so pretty Julie!
Thanks so much, Kristin! I appreciate your kind words! Hope you can find a bird cage now!
This cottage-styled arrangement is so pretty for spring! That little bird cake is perfect!
Thanks, Christy! I’m actually looking to do a major decor style change-up this year! We’ll see!
What a sweet vignette. I saw a decorative birdcage the other day on FB marketplace, but wasn’t sure how to use it- your idea would be perfect!
Yes… there are lots of ways to use them… kinda like a cloche!
You keep sucking me in with those gorgeous ranunculus!!! You rocked this challenge…your vignette is beautiful!
Oh, Julie. You did a wonderful job with this Pinterest challenge. I love your cute little bird cage and the fresh flowers are the perfect touch!
Thanks, Jen… it only took a few minutes to put together, but it was fun!
This is so cute. Love your creative ideas.
Thanks so much, Rachel. Hugs!
Those ranunculus get me every time! You nailed this challenge…beautiful vignette my friend!
The ranunculus bloomed like crazy, and now there are just leaves. Boo hoo! Maybe I can get another one for the rest of the season?!
These Easter touches are absolutely beautiful Julie! Enjoy the long weekend- happy Easter!
Thanks, Shawna! So appreciate you coming by!
Julie I love your take on this challenge! The bird cage is super cute and I love all the bright colors for spring. Beautiful pictures!
I am sorry I am just now getting around to visiting. I am happy to be featuring you at tonight’s AAH link party!
Hope you will join us again!
Thank you so much, Amber… for the kinds words and the feature! Hugs!
Hello Friend! Just popping back in to say we are featuring your Spring bird cage on the Farmhouse Friday LP. Thanks for sharing and we hope you link up again. Pinned!
Oh… thank you so much! What a blessing!
Congratulations, you are being featured on Thursday Favorite Things. I hope you stop by. https://www.eclecticredbarn.com/2021/04/thursday-favorite-things-party_8.html
Thank you so much, Bev! Always excited to be featured!
That turned out great! I like that you scaled things down to fit your own house and style. Even better that you already had the birdcage in your stash!
Thanks, Joanne! It’s always great when you don’t have to purchase anything, right? (But shopping is so fun, too!)
Such a cute decor piece for Spring, Julie!! Those little birds are so cute!
Thanks, Rachel. One of my favorite vignettes. I think it was because it was my first time doing a spring garden.
Hi Julie – What a great idea for a spring vignette. It’s just what I needed to see this time of year. The flowers from your garden are also spectacular. Thank you for sharing this post on the Home Imagined link party.
I’m hoping to have ranunculus this year, too! Here’s hoping the critters don’t get to them! Peppermint and coffee grounds are in my planting strategy!
This is such a sweet spring vignette Julie.
Thank you for sharing your bird cage décor at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather this week. I’m delighted to be featuring it at the party tonight and pinning too.
Julie, I love how you created a spring vignette outside! It is so cute and is made up of all my favorite spring things! I am excited to be featuring you tomorrow at the Home Imagined Link Party. Congrats-Meagan
