How is spring already here? I feel like I have been ready for months, and it’s almost time for longer days and the wildflowers to reappear! I’m excited to finally share my spring table with you all, filled with plenty of greens (always), neutral accents, and, of course, some spring pieces.
Since Easter is a little later this year, I am motivated to get all things spring since we have longer to enjoy it! Let’s start with the basics on the table. The runner I chose is from the kitchen section at Hobby Lobby. I love it because it blends so well with both grey and tan tones. Plus I ALWAYS buy my runners and kitchen decor to reuse year round and for occasions like showers that I help host. I totally justify my purchases when I know that I can reuse them!
Next, I placed my “anchors” spread on top. These are my larger pieces that I can also leave out after the season is over. For this particular season, I used two wooden lanterns and a cluster of green bottles in the center. At first, I wasn’t excited about the lanterns being open (without glass). But when I realized that I can weave the greenery in and out, as well as not having the moss not so confined, the lanterns became much more appealing. Inside the lanterns, I used a green moss that was easy to manipulate while still holding shape without needing confinement. The moss, nests and small eggs came from Hobby Lobby. So to recap, I have the two wooden lanterns on the outside and now for my middle piece I originally was set on having a larger vase with some greenery. But when I saw these green vintage-inspired bottles at my local favorite shop, I was sold. Plus, that means less greenery I needed to buy, and, if we are being honest, I do NOT need anymore greenery to add to my collection! I love how real this small bundle of faux babies breath looks! Now, the wood cookie underneath the bottles I have reused so many times I can’t even remember where I first got it….maybe from my wedding?!
So now onto the greenery accents. One garland really does the trick, but the even bigger secret is finding one that is made with wire, making it much easier to manipulate and weave the pieces. To fill the garland in some, I bought one extra floral pick of small white flowers and individually pulled them off and stuck them throughout the garland. You can always hot glue in these pieces, but I just left them loose in case I found a different spot for my garland later!
And last, time for the place setting. There is really nothing special that I added to my year round pieces. The napkin ring is the only spring touch that I break out every year. And, the best part is that I didn’t even use actual napkin rings! These are just vine pieces pulled from another faux greenery pick. They are so easy to bend and wrap that there’s really no way to go wrong. Some years, I bend the vines as napkin rings to hold an Easter egg in the center. You could even hot glue magnets onto the eggs (or whatever you wanted to use in the middle) to attach your piece more securely and trade it out for something else next season!
Now besides tossing another garland in the chandelier (I told you I had a large collection), that completes my green and spring table for the year! I hope you got some inspiration as you scrolled through my process. 🙂
