The Perfect Spring Table Setting

Home, Uncategorized v March 31, 2015


With holidays, family get togethers and Sunday brunches upon the horizon, here are some simple tips to spring color into your table setting!


Create a Vibrant Focal Point

  1. Place arrangements in anything from a reused mason jar, wooden box or paper bag to serving dishes, apothecary glassware or vintage tea cups.
  2. Be true to season by curating floral arrangements that include anything from gerber daisies, daffodils, calla lilies, hyacinths, and orchids to cherry blossoms, peonies, tulips, roses, and/or succulents.
  3. Incorporate alternative items such as fruit slices, eggs shells, branches or grass for a crips and dynamic conversation piece.


Nix the Table Cloth

Shed those winter layers and don’t be afraid to leave the table cloth in the linen drawer.

  1. Instead of covering it up, expose your table’s natural wood grain using it to accent colorful table accessories.
  2. Try incorporating vibrant Spring-inspired napkins into the mix and setting them on each plate with an earthy napkin ring, branch, flower petal or sprig of greens.


*We love the intriguing prints of Dogwood & Hastings organic napkins. They are not only a beautiful addition to your Spring table, they are made in Oregon and printed with non-toxic, water based inks. For formal engagements, try these napkin rings and candle stick holders – handmade in NYC.




Keep it Minimal

Although it’s fun to explore all the fun colors of spring, you don’t want to give your guests a headache in the process. Neutralize with table accents that ground your table setting.

  1. To keep from overcrowding your table, keep your table setting simple, yet engaging.
  2. Break up the color by adding neutrals like organic canvas chairs, and white accents.

    Love the great colorful ideas. Looking forward to adding fun small accents this Easter. I especially love the lemon slices on the vase, so clever. Surprised I didn’t think of it before 🙂
