With Spring (hopefully!) around the corner, we are looking forward to dressing our table with a lovely Spring tablescape. This tablescape will be the perfect visual to accompany the much longed for season that marks the end of long, cold and dark winter nights with splashes of colour, vibrance and texture.
Our top tips for Spring Tablescapes
Keep things clean and fresh
Colours typically associated with Spring tend to be a little more muted; pastels, creams and whites are popular at this time of the year, which also ties in nicely with Easter celebrations. Pastel pink, lilac, yellow, blue and green work as excellent highlights when paired with whites or creams.
Bring in Spring blooms
This is where you can get creative! The choices are yours here, depending on your space and occasion. Opt for a scene stealing seasonal floral centrepiece featuring tulips, daffodils, freesias and hyacinths to bring the wow factor or you could simply place some tulips and daffodils in milk bottles / small vases and dot these around the table.
Don’t forget the greens!
Spring is all about new life and regrowth, a season filled with vibrance; incorporate that where possible. Consider adding some extra foliage into your floral arrangements or weave some eucalyptus between your place settings. Alternatively you could bring the green to the table with our Olive Green or Apple Green recycled leather placemat sets.
Bring the glitz
Next to a more muted colour scheme, plates with metallic edging and detailing really will pop, as will gold cutlery – once you have the flowers, greens and other extras in place, have a little play around with your flatware and see what works best.
One of the best things about tablescaping is the different textures you can utilise. Reclaimed wood works brilliantly such as a slice of a tree to place your wine bottles or your fresh flowers on – local reclamation yards are a great place to start with if you are thinking of adding some wooden textures but have nothing at home to use. Another option would be to leave your wooden table without a tablecloth covering, to allow the farmhouse style to come through.
Soften the lighting
Using candles can really help to set a homely and cosy atmosphere and can soften the look of a tablescape. A mixture of pillar candles and tealights always work well together as a pairing. You could also add some white candlesticks into wine bottles and scatter these around the table for a more rustic vibe.
Enjoy the outdoors
With Spring comes milder and warmer weather – if the weather looks good, why not set up your table outside to really experience the joys of Spring. This will also add another dimension to your event or gathering. The addition of some creamy fluffy throws on seats will provide yet another texture as well as the option for people to cosy up if it gets a little chilly, whilst still enjoying the great outdoors!
