Pretty Ideas For Decorating A Spring Table

Pretty ideas for decorating a spring table with flowers, pastel colors and some handmade touches. Craft a small centerpiece for each guest with this color palette that is utterly romantic!

What do you think of first when you start to set a table for a special event or seasonally? I feel that the foundation of any table setting or tablescape should be the flowers. Maybe this goes against tradition? Some experts feel that the way you start is to lay the foundation with a tablecloth. I prefer a naked table most of the time, unless I’m making a statement with the tablecloth to be noticed first.

Today I’m joining some friends for Styled + Set, hosted by Designthusiasm. If you’re coming over from Stone Gable, welcome!

Pretty Ideas For Decorating A Spring Table

For this table setting I wanted something pretty and pale with spring flowers taking center stage. I am fortunate to have a local florist that I can call with my ideas, and they happened to have pale pink lilacs and popcorn hydrangea. Good enough to eat and the smell of fresh lilac is intoxicating! I often form a garland down the table, and with lilac being messy a runner with white ruffles went down underneath.

The greenery is clippings from my garden and that’s it! You could easily do something similar with faux flowers and I’ll link some at the bottom of this post that I LOVE. Simple pink ribbon that I hand painted was tossed here and there for a romantic touch. In this post I explain my process for hand painting ribbon ” Learn How To Hand Paint Ribbon

Keeping the floral centerpiece low allows for a better view across the table. With fresh flowers out of water I would only leave the table set this way for the duration of the party and then place back in a bucket.

My stemware (no longer being made) is blush pink and I grabbed some candles in gold and pink to coordinate with the flowers. Some prefer pretty ideas in decorating for spring to be bunnies and tulips, and it’s just a personal choice in the direction you want to go.

Light and ethereal…this sort of a tablescape speaks the rebirth of spring with blooming buds right outside. Pink taper candles and faux cherry blossoms on the buffet and yes…you can mix faux with authentic florals.

On the back of each chair I hand tied some ribbon with greenery clippings from the garden. It’s difficult to see, but the greenery has tiny little flower buds just starting before the garden bursts into bloom.

The place settings are layered with new white dishes and antique French Limoges in pale pink and green. I love each guest to have something unique at a place setting, either to take home or simply to enjoy.

Digging into my studio stash of vintage embellishments, a bird’s nest was put together with a vintage velvet bird. Each bird sits on a nest with a vintage nut cup filled with feathers and a delicate and whimsical butterfly adornment. Handmade gift tags are under each nest and if this doesn’t say pretty ideas in decorating for SPRING, I don’t know what does!

I hand dyed these vintage napkins in a pale pink ombre and love OMBRE for spring and summer. In this post you’ll learn more about the process ” DIY Ombre Home Decor Ideas

  1. Absolutely gorgeous!!! I love this thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Candy for stopping by!

  2. Can you please tell me if the beaded wall sconces and chandelier in your photo with the white washed farm table are antiques? If not, would you please share where you found them at? I love them! Iā€™m searching for a pair of wall sconces and a chandelier like those. Thank You!

    1. They are antiques Valerie…thank you for the visit today!

  3. Janet,
    This is one of my absolute favorite tablescapes from you! I am inspired to try something similar, but using blue and white. The white blooming jasmine is heavenly right now and perhaps will be as stunning as your pink hydrangeas and lilacs.


  4. Odessa Graham says:

    You never disappoint Janet. I am always mesmerized by your tables, and especially the ones done in pink tones. Just love stopping by to see you, and what you have done for us now!

  5. Janet, this is absolutely stunning!! I always love your tables, but I think this is my new favorite!! Every detail is perfect but that floral garland is everything!

  6. B Healhty says:

    Janet, I LOVE your glasses! Can you tell me where you got them (even though they’re no longer made)? If they’re vintage, do you know the manufacturer? I might be able to find them used.

    thank you,

    1. I would be happy to tell you if I knew the maker Barb, but I don’t recall. They are acrylic!!

  7. Such a lovely blog, BUT, I can hardly see it for all the adds and pop ups. Sigh… do you ever go to see ewhat it looks like with all the junk adds on? .

    1. Hi Gayle. This is how I make my living and all of the content and printables are totally free for my readers. Ads are what help me to pay for the expenses of running a blog…such as hosting fees, technical support, and so on. There are ads on every news website, Facebook and of course tv. Hope this makes sense.

  8. Absolutely Breathtaking!!!! I love everything about it! Gorgeous!!

  9. I like the ruffle table runner. I am dreaming of it being organdy, I have so many good organdy memories with ruffles. The pink vintage napkins are beautiful. You did a great job dying those…..

  10. Janet, the handmade “Merci” gift tags (sitting under the pink birds) are adorable.
    Would you share how you made them or where I may obtain a printable pattern for them?

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Carole…I have had those for years and unfortunately I don’t have a printable for these.

  11. Thank You for responding to my inquiry. They are really pretty.

  12. Ashley Bergstrom says:

    I LOVE how you set your table! The colors, the flowers, the dishes. I am not a bunny and tulip kind of girl for Easter. I was lucky enough to have purchased your blush glasses quite awhile back, after asking you where to buy them. They are so pretty and the color and design on them so feminine. Who would know they are not glass?! I would so enjoy myself sitting at your table for Easter lunch as to me it is perfection. Cheery! Appreciate the links to the faux flowers too. Always love referrals on something like faux. That way I can rest assured they will look lovely and not reek of fake. Happy Easter Janet!

  13. You never fail to impress. I live in an apartment so will try the faux flowers, but love the delicacy of your table arrangement and all the little touches. Love, love.

  14. So beautiful! I love the pink purples. in Germany we need two more weeks to get the same level in our garden. Agin you did a great job : – )

  15. Your tablescape is gorgeous. Sweet simple elegance.

  16. Lovely. The soft pink of the florals and the napkins are so inviting. Those goblets are favorites too.
