Blue skies, sunshine and spring flowers allow us to fling open our doors and let the outdoors in, both physically and metaphorically. If you find you are entertaining just a bit more this season – whether that’s for Mother’s Day, anniversaries, birthdays or just to enjoy a meal with friends – you’ll want to bring the outdoors in with touches of spring on your dining table. Whatever your personal style, you’ll find some great ideas for spring themed tablescapes from those we are featuring in our post today. From bold colors to the palest pastels, pretty patterns and rustic touches, check out these tablescape ideas to suit your home decor and our top styling tips to achieve the look.
Pretty Blush Spring Tablescape
Keep it pale and interesting with the color of the season – blush pink – as Lucy has done from Craftberry Bush in her beautiful setting. A pale pink throw is used as a runner which sets the scene and simple touches of greenery and gold create a light and airy look that’s perfect for springtime. While this is an Easter table, you could easily swap out the bunny and eggs for white vases or small votives with tealights.
Top tip: Simplify mixing and matching by using all white chargers, plates and bowls for budget-busting style that gives you a layered look with ease.
Modern Spring Tablescape
Take your dinner setting outdoors for no-frills style that’s anything but boring. Sina from Happy Grey Lucky created this stunning modern spring tablescape on a bare painted table – no runners or tablecloth required – using a few simple pieces with big impact. A combination of inexpensive hydrangeas and dahlias add depth to the floral centerpieces and a few brightly colored peonies finish the look.
Top tip: For a modern look, keep the details to a minimum. Think clean lines and an understated color palette and let the flowers to do all the talking! Modern shapes in the candle holders and simple gold cutlery are unfussy and there is little embellishment with a nod to Scandinavian style.
Colorful Spring Table Setting
While we may think of pastels when it comes to Spring, there’s no reason not to embrace bold color this season. We love how Jennifer of Dimples and Tangles created a fun and elegant look with pops of bright pink in the tulips and candelabras. In fact, she even shares a gif on her blog post to show exactly how the table was layered step-by-step!
Top tip: You certainly don’t need to buy new table linens every time you want to swap out your look. Jennifer uses bits of fabric from her personal stash and simply irons down the hems to create a variety of runners and tablecloths.
Rustic Spring Table Setting
Channel your California cool vibe with this beautiful rustic outdoor table setting which incorporates natural elements alongside rustic linens for a look that’s just as gorgeous inside or out! Jen from The Effortless Chic incorporated smaller vases of flowers dotted along the length of the table alongside copper cutlery and wooden chargers to keep the look more casual and pretty.
Top tip: Move away from the large centerpiece for a more casual rustic style with pretty blooms in small white vases which utilise the entire length of your table. Your guests will better be able to see each other to encourage conversation!
Monochrome Spring Tablescape
If you love monochromes, you’ll love Amy of Homey Oh My’s beautiful setting which incorporates shades of black, white and grey to create a striking table that’s full of subtle contrast. Rustic linen creates the perfect casual backdrop, offset by simple rimmed plates and vintage style glasses. Florals add the detail here once again, giving the table a warm and welcoming vibe.
Top tip: Layer a runner over a tablecloth to create texture and interest on a more neutral tablescape. Additional layers are created with dark grey linen napkins which drape over the table and are finished off by individually wrapped flowers in each setting.
Natural Spring Tablescape
We love the light and elegant look this tablescape Kelley Nan created, using simple white dinnerware on hyacinth chargers mixed with gold cutlery and clear glassware. The finishing touch? Branches clipped from her own backyard which add height to the center of her spring table setting. We love the extra addition of little clip-on butterflies which create the perfect spring element!
Top Tip: There’s no need for complicated floral arrangements on your setting. Keep things loose and simple with flowering branches for an easy, inexpensive way to add wow-factor.
