12 Decorating Ideas To Set A Beautiful Spring Table
1. shop your house first
Before you decide to buy anything, you should see what you have first in the closet or spring decoration bins. Splurge on something that you may not have in your decor and that could be use in different vignettes.
My splurges were on two large rabbits and a few pink glass candle holders. These are items that will be used in the spring and summer months.
2. Bare Table or LineNs
These days dining room tables are so gorgeous that you want to show off the details of the wood. Especially an old farmhouse table with a beautiful worn look to it.
I love using table runners and square table cloths as a table scarf. You turn it on an diagonal.
The square table cloth adds some spring colors to the table yet it still shows the beautiful wood of my trestle dinning table.
Here on this table, a table runner was used in vibrant colors. You can read about my 9 tips on how to create a beautiful and romantic tablescape here.
3. Bring color in with napkins
With a neutral table throw or runner, you can go with all white napkins or bring in some color. Robin Egg blue looks beautiful with a flax or linen table runner.
With this square table cloth, I used a blue that was not the prominent color in the pattern. See how it coordinate and compliments the colors in the table cloth.
4.Use festive Napkin rings or DIY Project
Try adding festive napkin rings to your place setting. These darling rabbit napkin rings can be used for Easter, tea in the garden, spring or summer luncheon with the ladies. They are going to be perfect for a tea party with my grand daughters.
4. USE A TOUCH OF THE UNEXPECTED
This Belgium vintage crate is placed on the center of the table. The height does not block the view of the guest on the other side of the table. It is important to not obscure your guests views of one another. You want to keep conversation flowing.
The vintage crate adds texture and more visual interest. See how it becomes your center piece. You can add a plant or flowers. Group items in odd amounts.
5. add some vintage charm
Put some of those yards sales and thrift store finds to good use. You can create stunning arrangements of blooming flowers or plants in vintage dishes.
In the photo above, a Grape Hyacinth is places in a vintage white ironstone soup tureen. Not only does it look beautiful, your home will smell amazing. Checkout my post on Spring Decorating Ideas: How To Decorate With Plants and Flowers. I show you how to use vintage dishware to make beautiful centerpieces for your home.
6. A Touch of Whimsy
A touch of whimsy are two stone rabbits on the table. One is just relaxing on the table.
The other rabbit looks like he is hiding behind the daffodils. You can have fun with your table scape. I may hide a few eggs with surprises in them on the table. I found the rabbits here.
7. use Candles holders in spring colors
Recently, I came across these beautiful delicate glass pink holders on sale. They were at a great price point.
The above photo shows two of the three candle holders. Each candle holder has a different pattern. The candle holders have batter operated flicker taper candles with moving wick. They come with a timer and remote.
Another idea would be to use your crystal or glass candle holders with a soft green, pink, lavender or blue taper candles.
8. ADD FRESH FLOWERS
You can keep it simple by adding a vase of fresh flowers to the table. Fresh flowers can be placed in a vintage Mason jar, glass or ironstone pitcher. Around Easter, you can find great bargains for cut flowers at your local grocery store. I found Tulip bunches for $5 and snagged a couple for our home.
9. TRY THESE EASY CENTERPIECES IDEAS
Faux flowers these days are so realistic. Sometimes you have to up and touch it. You can create an easy center price with a few faux flowers in a pitcher. Here I added a votive candle and a bunny trinket dish with a few faux eggs. If you look closely there is a small bird clip on a flower.
Another idea for your table is to add a tray with a topiary, bunny and votive candle.
10. MIX AND MATCH DISHWARE
These days it is on trend to mix and match china patterns. I love to shop thrifts stores, antique markets, Etsy, etc. to find beautiful pieces of dishes.
French and English china are my favorites. Find pieces that can coordinate with each other to create unique table settings. Soft floral patterns are perfect for a spring tablescape.
11. Treat bag for your guest
A little bag with a homemade treat tied with twine has been set at each place setting. A little holiday gift that was expensive to make and will make them feel special.
12. place cards for your guests
Terra cotta pots with succulents as place card for your guest. This idea is perfect for those spring and summer outdoor parties too.
You could also use colored eggs. Use a piece of ribbon around the egg. Add a tag with the guest name and tie the ribbon into a bow. You could substitute twine for ribbon.
