A Pretty Floral Spring Tablescape


Decorating and getting ready for a holiday or party during the spring is just so much more fun than any other time of year! I have a somewhat newly found love for putting together tablescapes (my Christmas themed table this past year was my first!) and have been planning my first spring table for a few months and am so excited with how it turned out! Use it for Easter Sunday or a spring party - from a casual dinner to a shower and so much more. I knew I wanted something pastel and springy but also wanted it to be simple enough to re-create and also something that I could put together easily over and over again this season.

Believe it or not, my inspiration for the entire table began with the napkins I used. Seems silly but when you see these napkins you'll get it. ;) I hope this gives you some ideas if you're looking for a simple but beautiful table setup this season! Everything is affordable and easy to put together and most importantly, COLORFUL!

I always alternate between my favorite champagne flutes and wine glasses and loved the way these flutes looked here! I got the tumblers at Home Goods and they're plastic but look just like glass - they're also dishwasher safe! I linked the champagne flutes and some similar tumblers to shop for your table:




Perfect little additions for Easter! You can easily add and remove the egg (or bunny!) decor for the spring season!


A floral centerpiece is such a statement maker and is so customizable to what you like and to what matches the color scheme you have going on! I always, always, always get my flowers from Trader Joe's and they last forever. Longer than a florist's bouquet ever has for me, and much longer than anywhere else I've bought flowers. They're also very affordable so if you need a large amount of flowers (like I did here), you can get a vase full of flowers for well under $50. I filled the main vase with white and pink roses, tulips, baby's-breath and hypericum berries. I originally was going to do three large vases filled with flowers, but saw these gorgeous ranunculus' at Trader Joe's and got a couple of bunches of them and added them to smaller vases on either side of the large vase, and added in some leftover baby's-breath and a tulip in each. I LOVE the combination and how it turned out! The ranunculus are what I like to call knock-off peonies (lol) because they look so similar but are smaller and I love the color variation in them. So simple to put together and so, so beautiful! I still can't stop staring at these flowers - best part is you'll be able to have them intact for multiple parties if you're hosting a lot this spring! My large vase is a vintage Tiffany & Co. vase, but I linked a bunch of similar ones in size/design and some options that would be beautiful for a centerpiece:







Probably the most beautiful napkin rings ever! These probably are too pretty to be napkin rings and I'm so obsessed with them! There's a silver version and gold - these are the gold ones and they're incredibly beautiful. The quality is amazing and they look like they were so expensive, but they're really so affordable! I couldn't believe just how perfect they looked with these floral napkins - they're a perfect spring touch and they're something you'll always have and can always use to elevate any table setup no matter what time of year it is.

These floral napkins have been in and out of stock since they went on sale (!!), so if they're not available when you're looking, THIS set is nearly identical (seriously - same pastel shades and floral print) for half of the price!






This pretty acrylic jar is from Home Goods and is the brand AR&Co.; I was hoping to find it online for you guys but it looks like it's only available to purchase from Italy (lol!) and I found one on eBay in new condition, and check your local Home Goods for it/something similar - they had SO many similar ones there when I purchased this one! Here's some other decorative jars that are similar and would work well as a part of a centerpiece or to hold croissants, pastries, etc. on your table:





These woven, "petaled" placemats make the entire table in my opinion! I originally found these scalloped rattan placemats on Serena and Lily and planned to get them, and then I found the ones I ultimately used for more than half of the price! They're pretty much identical and are the perfect statement maker. I love the way they look and the way that the scalloped edges adds so much texture to the table. It also really stands out and makes the plates "pop" and look even prettier!




My favorite part (besides the napkins that I can't stop talking about!) about this tablescape is how versatile every single piece is. The white dinner plates are ones I'll use year round, and I'll use the rattan placemats ALL spring and summer for indoor and outdoor entertaining. The pearl napkin rings will no doubt get over used, and you can never go wrong with a white, $14 table runner. Here's the links for everything I used:

I loved putting this together soo very much and took way too many pictures of the floral centerpiece, it was VERY hard to pick which to share here because I went overboard when I shot this tablescape! ;) I hope this gives you some inspiration if you're looking to update your decor this season or are hosting soon - this is super simple to re-create and customize to what you like!
XOXO -A
