(also great to use for Palm Sunday with palms or for a Passover Seder - just replace eggs holding rolled napkins with ribbon or cuff bracelets (see here)

The above Spring Tablestyles I created in one afternoon, after gathering up accessories, textiles, and dishes from around the house (plus a few thrifted items I gathered along the way). My inspiration behind them all was having just painted the dining room an amazing & refreshing spring green! My fave dishes to use for table settings is simple basic white, but it's anything but basic because it is so versatile. It's easy to add layers of interest to white dishes like printed or textured salad or dessert plates, plus it's easy to add extra place settings to a table when the guest list grows - but still keep a cohesive look.

Centerpieces don't need to be over sized or full of flowers to make a statement. I made this simple arrangement from glass cylinders (I usually have filled with sand & coral), green moss (picked up on clearance after Christmas - go figure?) and 3 brass candlestick holders I thrifted two Fall's ago. Alone, the brass pieces were too small. Adding them inside the glass cylinders (from Dollar Store & Micheal's) enlarged the scale of the arrangement + adds sparkle to the table. Making TWO sets of these and setting them at the ends of the table, keeps the "center" open for food & conversation, like I did last year for Our Easter Home.
The year before, when I had painted the dining room a pretty shade of turquoise, I had come up with also pairing pink & red or yellow & white for some more Spring Tablestyling...
Using doilies can give a table a lacy look. Layer them down the center of a table as a runner, combining with starfish or shells.
Mix both real (ferns) with faux (blossoms) to create a look for less.
A trellis hung on the wall adds to the garden room feel.
Since the weather is so beautiful outside, Spring is the perfect time to also take advantage of it and set your table outside...
For Mother's Day, I made my own personalized arrangements with $2 teapots I found through thrift. And to help save money on real flowers, I opted for tiny tea roses. For filler: mix with mums, daisies or carnations. After brunch, mom got to take these arrangements home for her bedroom nightstands, and afterwards as part of her kitchen decor.
Happy Spring Tablescaping!
