A Sunny Spring Table Two Ways - Using Basic White Plates

If you are passionate about entertaining like I am, then you know that investing in a set of white dinnerware is a must.  They are essential for food stylists, bloggers, cookbook authors and for anyone that prefer a timeless and versatile option for everyday use.  

A set of white plates can be instantly transformed into something special and sophisticated by simply adding a patterned tablecloth.  Elevate the table with  romantic flowers, vintage flatware and stylish napkins.  Even a chic place card can do wonders!  

Lately, I've noticed that I am sticking to basic pieces and adding personality and seasonal touches with accent/salad plates.  So much less to store with minimal out-of-pocket costs.

My favorite white plates mix easily with seasonal accents to create a table that welcomes springtime.  Cheerful yellow and vibrant tulips spread the joy of the season on this happy table.

I've created two inviting spring tables using basic white plates topped with floral accent plates to show you that you can style a beautiful table with little effort.

The first table begins with a white tablecloth and yellow table runner.  The place setting is a combination of yellow round loop placemat, white and gold plate charger, gold rim dinner plate and yellow floral accent plate.

White and gold flatware add elegance while a rosette napkin fold brings a unique touch of spring to the table setting.  Sunny tulips in a white pitcher is a subtle nod to the season. 

Can you imagine yourself her?  Fragrant blossoms and pretty china set the scene for an extraordinary morning meal.


The second table plays on the blue hues on the vintage accent plate.  A quick switch of the wine glass and salad plate makes this table ideal for a laid-back afternoon lunch or brunch.

I hope this post will help you find a few ideas to create your own lovely table for family and friends.  

Be blessed and safe.
