Hello everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. It is still a bit cold and windy here in the Northeast making a little difficult to think about spring decorating.... Nevertheless, I am very much looking forward to pastels colors, spring flowers and warm days ahead.
We have been busy finishing up a few makeovers around the house. My reading room is done with the exception of new blinds for the eight windows in the room. Yes, eight windows and there are a total of 43 windows in our home. Yikes.... And our master bedroom makeover is finally complete. Window treatments and all.
I promise to share photos of these two rooms in the next few weeks. Today however, I am sharing a few photos of a spring tablescape that I hope will ease the way into the spring season.
As many of you know, I enjoy creating a beautiful table. Part of the fun for me is the planning that goes into setting a table. It does not have to be an over the top table but colors, lighting, mood and food are key for effortless entertaining. I love layering a table with crisp linens of lace cloths, napkins, china, fresh flowers and of course, candles, especially if I am entertaining in the evening. Keep in mind that colors and patterns aren't the only ways to make your table setting pop. A mix of interesting textures can add a subtle and elegant look with very little effort.
Here, I used natural plate chargers layered with creamy textured porcelain dinnerware, check napkins, classic stemware and forge flatware to create a laid-back mood in this setting. A simple floral center piece using tulips pulls it all together. To add a bit of visual impact to the table, I added a natural twig nest to each place setting. Simply beautiful.
I think this table is easy for anyone to re-create. It is fresh, elegant and very inviting. I hope you can apply some of these ideas to your own tables this spring. Now, it is on to watching the red carpet and the Oscars.
