Spring has Sprung: Spring Tabletop Decorating

For the past three seasons I have enjoyed creating and sharing seasonal-inspired tablescapes with you. As I come to a close on this segment, I feel it is fitting to end with spring. Spring is one of my favorite seasons—it marks the beginning of fresh flowers, juicy fruits and outdoor fun. Although I enjoy the fall and winter months, I consider myself to be a warm-weather gal. I enjoy being outside in the sunshine—whether at the beach or in my backyard, there’s nothing better than soaking up the sun! The first official day of spring (March 20th) has recently passed, and with that comes the promise of warmer weather, longer daylight hours, and for me, an extra spring in my step!

Spring tabletop decorating is all about embracing florals—colors and blooms! I think it is essential to use fresh flowers as centerpieces for your table—pink tulips, yellow daffodils, pink peonies and white hydrangeas are some of my favorites. Here are two Spring-inspired tablescapes.

Spring Tablescape #1: Easter Brunch
With Easter just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about your holiday table. For my Easter-inspired tablescape, I used this gorgeous tablecloth from Le Jacquard Francais, a recent gift from my soon-to-be mother-in-law. I love the classic color palate and pattern of this tablecloth (similar available online or retailers like Sur La Table).

I created a bouquet of fresh, pink tulips and tied the clear, glass vase with a burlap ribbon (from Paper Source). My table also includes clear plates and white linens to help balance out the bright colors of the tablecloth and flowers.

I think it is important to build your home décor collection over the years—I have often seen ceramic rabbits and decorative eggs that would be a perfect added touch to this tablescape. Maybe next year I will get one!

Spring Tablescape #2: Al Fresco Dining
With the warmer weather finally here, it is time to start eating outside again. I designed this spring-inspired tablescape around the tulip centerpiece from my Easter brunch. I used my everyday dining wear (from Williams Sonoma) and topped my plates with whimsical teal and white linens from Home Goods (isn’t the playful pattern fun?).

I also think that colorful straws can be a fun (and inexpensive) touch when decorating your table! These straws were a gift from a dear friend, and are from Magnolia Bakery, but paper straws can be found at most craft and party supply stores!

I hope my spring tablescapes inspire you to create designs of your own. I am always looking for new ideas and inspiration (for any season), so please share your ideas with me! And thanks again for indulging me the opportunity to share my designs this past year!

      Bonnie, I also recommend Home Depot for beautiful, budget-friendly flowers. As new home owners, my fiancé and I spend much time at Home Depot, and I must say that I have purchased many lovely blooms from there!
