It’s officially spring! Time to change the decor to lighter colors and fun seasonal decorations.
Spring Table Setting
Spring color is addictive. I have been searching for lighter colors and couldn’t wait to put all of my spring items together on this table setting. We eat at our dining table for every meal so it works best to use decorations that can easily be moved to make way for dishes and extra place settings when needed.
These spring green linens came from the clearance rack at Pier 1 Imports. We already had the placemats, and I love how they look together. I always prefer to use cloth napkins when ever possible, they are easy to wash and reuse.
The colorful napkin rings are also Pier 1. I spent about .50 cents on them. BARGAIN!
The Pier 1 store had the most adorable displays with bunnies and greenery. Just beautiful! I brought home one little bunny and used faux forsythia and bayberry balls that we already had to decorate my table without spending a lot of money.
Real or Faux?
The butterflies on the greenery balls are from the Dollar store. I buy loads of them each spring, I just love how colorful they are. They look so real! They look great in planters too!
It wouldn’t be any fun if there wasn’t some Easter candy on the table, malted candy eggs are scattered down the table and the candy dishes are full of jelly beans. I will have you know that my teenage boys were waiting in the wings for me to finish photographing so they could eat the candy. Some things never change!
The orchids on the table are real mini plants that have been sitting in my window sill all winter. They are so lovely! I discovered they Orchids bloom longer when kept underneath the glass cloches. The glass keeps the plants moist and they don’t seem to mind being a bit crowded under the curved glass top. We use cork discs under all our plants to protect the table surfaces underneath. Every time we go to Ikea I buy a bunch of these discs. They also make great hot pads for hot dishes at meal time.
To give our blue patterned dishes a new look, they were layered with some green plates from the thrift store in a darker shade of green. Shades of a color look great when used all together, and even the plates covered with ivy designs seem to look right.
The center piece is super easy to make. It is a 5 minute project. More on that tomorrow!
