Spring Tablescapes: ways to decorate

1. Spring Florals

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking. Yes, we know this first tip may sound a bit obvious: florals are typically the centerpiece of any tablescape- regardless of the season. However, spring is most certainly the best season for particular florals, and flowers are definitely the best way to spruce up your table. Make your spring floral arrangement focused on flowers that bloom in spring like tulips, daffodils, lilacs and peonies.

2. Colorful Candles

While white tapers are elegant, but why not mix it up and invite the colorful colors of spring into your everyday tablescape? You can find gorgeous tapered candles in colors from neon to pastels. You can even try different shaped tapers. Twisted candle tapers are very trendy at the moment. Swapping out your candle tapers is an effortless way to switch up your dining table.

Source branches from floral shops, or even source from your own backyard. Utilizing blooming branches for your spring tablescape adds an organic, natural feel to your space. Either mixed into an arrangement or arranged on its own, spring branches will instantly make your table feel fresh.

Why banish your beautifully colored produce to the fridge? Instead, highlight mother nature’s bounty by repurposing your spring produce into your everyday tablescape. This is a hack that designers and prop stylists have been using for years. Produce such as citrus fruits, carrots, and even radishes can be used to beautify a table setting. By incorporating colorful fresh fruits and vegetables into your table decor, you can master a creative and beautiful table. You can try using a hurricane vase full of lemons or a bouquet of carrots for your Easter Sunday centerpiece. The best part? You can eat the produce after-  first as decor, and then next on your plate!

10. Pretty Flatware

11. Unique Serving Ware

14. Ikebana Arrangements

Ikebana is the Japanese art form of floral arrangements. This floral design style has picked up the last few years and has created an Ikebana craze. Designed using singular floral stems typically with exotic flowers, and using low ceramic vases, these designs can be created. Florists and Ikebana aficionados alike achieve these designs with the use of floral frogs - or a multi-pronged tool that aids in the stems to stand straight up.The art form of ikebana focuses on the variety of height and the colors and textures of flowers and branches. 

15. Mini Bonsai Trees

Another unique and natural spring table setting idea is a bonsai tree. Bonsai is the Japanese art of growing and shaping miniature trees. It’s a beautiful artform that uses nature as the subject. Artists who practice bonsai take time clipping leaves, shaping the branches, and potting the trees in unique ceramic pots with moss and rocks.
