Spring has finally sprung, although the temperatures are still a bit cool. My bulbs are blooming, and it was time to make a pretty springtime table. My inspiration for the setting was this adorable wheelbarrow I found at the thrift store. I liked the soft colors on the painted wood, and the little tulip stencil on the side. So, digging into the silk flower stash, I pulled some pink tulips and white daffodils with yellow cups along with some greenery. I placed it on a white tablecloth.
I have a small collection of rabbits, and I think of them as spring and not necessarily an Easter decoration.
The place settings began with the spring green chargers, topped with our white everyday stoneware and the pink flower salad dishes, also a thrift store find a couple of years ago. This table will use mostly things I have shown before in previous tablescapes, but not in this combination. It is fun to use what is on hand in a new way.
Looking through the napkin holders, I remembered the watering cans found last year. With the pink handles and soft green accents, they go well with the garden theme.
I add everyday flatware and individual salt and pepper shakers to each setting.
Water glasses are added next.
I went down to the meadow edge and clipped some cherry blossoms from the tree that is flowering now, with DH’s help. I filled the little place card vases with water, and added the flowers. There are two little leaves on the front to hold a place card. These were a fun find and are called Be Seated Place Card Vases.
On one side of the centerpiece, I placed a rabbit holding a watering can, along with two green votive holders with unscented tealight candles.
I like the combination of spring green and pink with just a few yellow accents.
I kept the table simple for everyday use.
Here’s the other side, with another rabbit holding some flowers.
Here’s a closer view of the little vases with the fresh cherry blossoms. I’ll replace the flowers and fill out the seating cards if I have some friends over for lunch.
All I need to do to make it transition to Easter is add a few eggs. Then the eggs can be put away and the rabbits kept out for the rest of spring. You can see my Easter theme tablescape from a couple of years ago HERE. I don’t have the Easter egg plates shown in that post anymore. Yes, sometimes I do let dishes go, LOL!! Not often, but sometimes. See more of my tablescapes with the Tablescape category on the sidebar.
All done and ready to enjoy springtime meals everyday.
What is on your table for spring?
