Spring is still almost a week away, officially, but the warmer days seem to be here. Time for a springtime table to brighten up meal time. I looked in my stash of quilts and realized I have very little in the way of square table toppers. Mostly I make longer runners for the larger table in the dining room. So, I found a pretty fat quarter in a light green with a yellow floral print, folded the edges under and pressed it. It will just have to do. I put it in the center of the table and began pulling things to put together.
My spring green chargers are topped with the white stoneware everyday dinner plates, and pretty pink, yellow and green salad plates. Everyday flatware, crystal water glasses and individual salt and pepper shakers complete the settings.
Spring green napkins are held with a ceramic napkin ring with spring wildflowers and butterflies.
The centerpiece is a collection of pink, yellow, white and green silk flowers in a white ceramic basket.

I like using my rabbits for spring, and as long as I don’t put any eggs on the table, it doesn’t have an Easter feel. I can add some eggs when Easter gets closer, but this can serve all through spring on its own.
These little guys are salt and pepper shakers, but I’ve only ever used them as decorations.
All done, simple for spring.
We’ll enjoy this one for a few weeks.
If you love tablescapes, here are a few more from past years. My Springtime Table from 2020, before all the pandemic stuff started.
Gardening rabbits table from 2019 using the same plates as this year, and my little thrift store wheelbarrow as a centerpiece.
This is my Spring Chickens tablescape from 2018. Those ice cream parfaits have been donated back to the thrift store. The quilted table topper was sold in a sample sale. But I do still have the chicken plates.
It would be nice to add some fresh flowers this week to the kitchen counter.
Do you enjoy setting a pretty table? Do you have fresh flowers in your home for spring?
