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.
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 ”
