Setting the Table for Spring-Easter

Even if spring hasn’t officially sprung, we’re ready to celebrate its arrival. It’s been a long winter in many parts of the country and lots of us are suffering from the winter doldrums. What better way to welcome the new season than with a table setting inspired by Spring? These are eight of our favorite interior design ideas for spring table decor.
Birds Nests
We love the little bird’s nests on the place settings. The budding branches are a nice alternative to flowers.
Daisies & Gingham
Dining al fresco is one of the best parts of Spring. The blue gingham runner reminds us of picnic blankets. We like how the gingham is also used on the ribbons and cushions. The daisies are an inexpensive and happy accent.
How nice to give your guest a small pot of grape hyacinth to take home! Grape hyacinth is one of the earliest spring flowers to pop up. This is a great idea for an early Spring brunch or party.
Spring Green
Pink and green is a classic color combination. We think this is a fun, modern take for a Spring party.
Yellow & White
Daffodils, yellow tulips or even daisies combined with white and yellow linens and place settings create a warm, inviting table.

We love the small flower arrangements called posies used on this table. Blues, pinks and greens combined with white accents are fresh for table decor.
Daffodils and tulips are the most popular Spring flowers. Subtle and muted tones in the place settings and linens allow the focus to be on the lovely mixed daffodil centerpiece.
Another way to introduce green into your Spring table scape is moss. We think the moss runner is adorable. The green Bells of Ireland are another terrific green accent.
I love the bird’s nest idea with those cool melamine plates. Perfect for us living in Florida and we can have your spring celebrations outdoors! The pinks, aquas, and purples of the setting that incorporates posies reminds me of pastel Easter eggs. Which one is your favorite?
