It’s almost Spring, right? I may only have wishful thinking, but I’m really looking forward to Spring. I’m thinking of my garden layout and I’m dreaming of all the flowers. So, to get me in the Spring mood and out of the Winter Blues, I created a pretty in pink Spring Tablescape. Let’s check it out!
I like to start with a tablecloth or table runner. Sometimes I even use a piece of chiffon fabric and bunch it up all messy like. It works, trust me. For this table, I used a long white runner with little bits of fringe. Another way to add texture is with napkins. There are so many different kinds! I used a beautiful pink napkin tied with a pink chiffon ribbon.
I almost always use a placemat or charger. I love the woven circle placemats. I think the color gives a little texture and warmth. I also use silver or white charges, if I’m feeling fancy (which I did for this table).
I mean we all know that I love pink, right? And pink is a perfect spring color, in my opinion. I used pink taper candles, pink glasses, pink napkins and I added some pink flowers to the centerpiece. The second color that I tend to gravitate towards is green. The centerpiece has a lot of different greens…they are all fake! Probably the third color is white. I used some white taper candles, white table runner, and white dishes.
Dishes and Flatware
Speaking of dishes…. I only use white or cream dishes in my tablescapes. The main reason is that they are the perfect neutral backdrop, and you can add any color you want for that pop of color. The other reason is I don’t have any other dishes. 😂😂 I mean, you gotta work with what ya got! I do use a pop of color with the glasses or stemware. I’d like to increase my collection of colored glasses, but right now I have clear, pink, light purple, and red.
For flatware, I tend to use gold. I really like the look, although, the flatware I use is actually plastic. I enjoy the look of the gold flatware, but I didn’t want to make the commitment and buy a whole set. This is a perfect way to test out a look if you don’t want to go all it…just yet.
Let’s get to the best part, right? You can either go big or keep things really simple. The centerpiece is where you can add in real or faux flowers and/or greenery. I created a simple centerpiece with one of my favorite pieces…the dough bowl. I used a medium sized wood dough bowl and filled it with greens, white roses, and pink cherry blossoms. I also used vintage brass candlestick holders and wood candlestick holders with pink and white candles. Then I added a couple of votives. You can use this idea for any season or any holiday…it’s so easy! Watch a quick video here and here on how I created it.
I think layers keep a tablescape interesting, but you don’t have to have a lot of layers to have a pretty table. I’ve done very simple tablescapes and loved them just the same as the very involved tablescapes. I think a pop of color is nice for spring. I’m always going to gravitate towards pink, because it’s my favorite. But also incorporating greens keeps things fresh and perfect for spring. You have to have candles and I love using vintage brass candle holders. But you can also use votives or large pillar candles.
I hope you enjoyed this simple “pretty in pink” table idea and were inspired. Until next time Treasure Hunters!
