help my mantel

(disclaimer... please excuse my lackluster photos... thanks!)

So although I'm not 100% proud of the way our mantel has looked since we've moved in, I definitely feel like it has at least been a bit more interesting.

Here is our mantel in all its glory from this fall:


And a shot of the mantel from the holiday season:


But now this is all I've got:


I don't want to do anything too crazy, I do feel like less is more. But I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any suggestions for decor items for my spring mantel? No, don't think eggs and bunnies, just something with a little springtime appeal.

If you have any great inspiration photos pass them my way. PLEASE!

Thanks for your help!

A color pop is in order - I would look into orange or bright pink flowers to brighten the space up...maybe even more than one vase - keep it low since the mirror already draws the eyes up.

I don't have much to add – I just wanted to say that I am obsessed with that mirror.

Whenever I go to Z Gallerie, I admire it for awhile.
