SPRING GREEN: Take Color Cues from Nature When Setting Your Spring Table

Even if Spring hasn’t officially sprung, we’re ready to celebrate its arrival. It has been a long winter in many parts of the country and lots of us are suffering from the winter doldrums. I know my sweet niece, Heather, and her family in Maine are READY for Springtime!  What better way to welcome the new season than with a table setting inspired by Spring Green? 

This spring, the freshest greens lean toward bright, high-contrast shades. From spring grass to shell peas, citron to chartreuse, green lies at the root of this season’s most inspired table settings

Welcome guests to the table with personalized gifts they can enjoy at home. A garden stake in a diminutive flowerpot allows friendships to blossom.

Create a miniature bouquet with an inexpensive bud vase, pretty grosgrain ribbon, a guest’s monogram and a trio of tulips. Simple. Beautiful. Elegant.

I love the little bird’s nests on this place setting. The budding branches are a nice alternative to flowers and nothing could say Spring more.

Decorate your table {clockwise from top left} with a custom-embroidered napkin and place mat. Tie buffet napkins with string and arrange them in a compote. Candlesticks become favors. A hand-embroidered fern. Candy strips. Scalloped edges ruffle peachy plates. Mix and match napkins and rings. Vegetables are a visual treat. Present a set of napkins to your hostess.

I continue to be smitten by the colors and images of garden-themed table decor. The pinks and greens of peonies and tulips are a soft reminder  of Spring coming in like a lamb.  

Dining al fresco is one of the best parts of Spring. The gingham table runner reminds us of picnic blankets. The daisies are an inexpensive and happy accent. Elizabeth's FAVORITE flower!

Be still my ever loving rooster heart! I saved my favorite for last. What could possibly say spring more than this bold green print, a rooster, white tulips and dinning al fresco? If you can find it, let me know!

Fortunately, there's an array of products, from
tableware to napkins and glassware, to satisfy nearly
everyone's green decorating thumb. Loving to mix 
and match table settings, I head to my local thrift
stores and Goodwill. I ALWAYS come away with a
prize! Start gathering your Spring Green...'ll be glad ya did!
