Get our tips for creating a simple natural spring table perfect for an Easter brunch or any other special spring meal.
We love entertaining!
Of course, we’re pretty much just entertaining each other this past year. LOL
One of our favorite parts of hosting a brunch or dinner party is coming up with a fun theme.
So to keep the creativity flowing this year, we teamed up with 4 great blogging friends to come up with fresh ideas each month for a “virtual supper club.”
The last Thursday of the month we each share our ideas for that month’s theme for setting a unique table.
This month, our theme is a Spring Brunch.
We’ve also each chosen one course of the meal: a signature drink, an appetizer, a side dish, a main entre, and a dessert.
It’s been so fun to decorate our tables again and share them with you each month.
If you’re visiting from our good friend Stacy from Bricks’n’Blooms, or if you’re new to our blog, Welcome!
We’re both so happy you’re visiting!!
We’re Anne (wearing white) and AnnMarie (wearing pink), the two moms behind this blog!
So let’s take a look at our table for this month’s theme: a Spring or Easter brunch!
This month we’re visiting Anne’s home for the table.
Ideas for a Natural Spring Centerpiece
We’re both drawn to a fairly neutral color scheme in our homes.
So even though AnnMarie’s home is more modern farmhouse, and Anne’s is more traditional French country, you’ll find a lot of similar things!
We just use them a little differently.
This simple natural Spring brunch table all started with one of our favorite color schemes: green, white, and wood.
An old metal tray got a coat of white chalk paint using the same technique AnnMarie used on her candlesticks.
The large rectangular tray contains all the smaller items and anchors the centerpiece.
A green ceramic vase holds a bouquet of soft touch faux tulips.
Because is there any flower more perfect for spring than tulips?!
Not only do these faux tulips look so realistic, the petals have the waxy feel of real tulips.
The vase adds a little height to the table without getting in the way of conversation.
And then it was time to add more spring and Easter touches!
I placed one beautiful white ceramic orbs with a green floral and filigree pattern on each end of the tray.
Then added a small carved wood bunny on each side of the vase.
Next, I filled in the tray with some DIY jute-wrapped eggs.
Finally, I used small pieces of greenery to add a little more color to the tray.
You can purchase swags of greenery and pull them apart and get a lot of bang for your buck!
No tablescape is complete without some candles, right?!
After the spring centerpiece was finished, it was time to set the table!
How to Create Simple Spring Table Settings
I love combining vintage items with new pieces to create a unique look.
Since I wanted my spring table to have a natural kind of feel, I started with woven seagrass chargers at each place setting.
And I’ve got a confession for you…
I totally borrowed them from AnnMarie!
That’s one of our favorite tips for budget-friendly entertaining: you don’t always have to buy your own.
Always be careful with anything you borrow, and be prepared to replace it if it gets damaged.
I love that our friend Michele has a collection of vintage white dishes in a variety of patterns.
In fact, I love the idea so much that I’ve started picking up white dishes at HomeGoods and TJ Maxx when I find patterns I like at a good price!
So each place setting has a different patterned white plate.
I found the small Wedgewood plates at an antique shop and their green and white pattern were just perfect for this spring table!
I topped each plate with a willow green napkin in a DIY jute napkin ring.
We inherited china, crystal, and silver from my husband’s grandmother.
The patterns are a little more floral for my taste for regular use, but these floral touches were perfect for a special Easter brunch or spring meal!
