Spring Dining Room | Simple Neutral Tablescape

Get simple ideas to decorate your table for spring in a modern farmhouse style. This neutral spring tablescape features beautiful large floral stems.

Do you go away for Easter or spring break?

Or do you stay home and enjoy the holiday?

Our family is usually away on vacation for Easter every year.

It just seems that the kids’ spring break from school usually falls the week before or after Easter.

As they got older and hit middle and high school, it got harder for them to miss school.

The makeup class work is no joke!

So years ago we started taking a family vacation around Easter like the millions of others families.

At least it certainly feels like millions when you’re in a Disney park. LOL!

It was so much easier (and cheaper!) to go on vacation during the off times, but school comes first.

Being a grown up is hard sometimes isn’t it?!

This year we didn’t make plans for spring break because we have two trips planned for the summer.

For the first time in years, we will be home for Easter!

Honestly, I haven’t done much decorating for the holiday since my children were younger since we usually not home.

But this year I found something super cute, so I thought it would be fun to create a pretty tablescape.

How to Create a Simple Spring Centerpiece

I found this amazing wood board I found at Home Goods before Christmas.

I used it to create my Christmas centerpiece and I loved it so much I decided to pull it out again.

It’s the perfect neutral starting point for a super simple table centerpiece.

The warm wood tones of the long tray just pop against our painted white farmhouse table.

You could add a table runner like I did here or here or even leave it all by itself like this.

I decided to use the wood tray without a runner for this tablescape.

Since every Home Goods has a different inventory that’s always changing, I found a great modern rustic serving tray that’s similar to mine for you!

You could always make one too…I really don’t think it would be too difficult.

I need to try to DIY a long wood tray and share a tutorial with you.

Next, I grabbed two large glass jars and set them on the wood tray.

I love that the bottles have a bit of a blueish hue to them…so pretty!

Then, I placed three faux white cherry blossom stems in each vase.

Since these artificial stems are so long I didn’t need too many to get a big impact.

I just spread out the branches and bent them down a bit to make them look even more realistic.

Because real flowers that are that tall tend to droop…am I right?!

The dainty white flowers are so light and airy, and when displayed in these simple glass bottles they look so pretty for my Easter table.

Actually, this centerpiece is neutral enough I can probably leave it out all spring and even throughout the summer months too.

How to Use Every Day Dishes for a Holiday

I found these adorable bread plates with the bunny at Hobby Lobby and knew they would be perfect for my Easter table.

I have also linked some similar bunny plates here.

These plates were the jumping-off point to create this fun table for spring!

I just love the simple neutral vibe.

These plates are currently out of stock online but I found another set of plates that may even be cuter if that’s possible.

I set the table with our everyday plates from Pottery Barn rather than our fancy china dishes since the casual bunny plates coordinate with them so well.

A set of white dishes is so easy to dress up or down!

Then, I placed the dinner plate on top of a water hyacinth charger which adds a natural element and some more texture.

The placemat also breaks up the white plates on a white table.

How to Add Color to Your Table With Napkins

By placing a napkin behind the plate, the design on the plate to still visible.

A folded cloth napkin between the plates also adds a bit more color.

You can also set your napkins to the side of each place setting.

The grey chambray napkins coordinate with the neutral place settings.

Are you a team cloth or paper napkins?

We’re definitely team paper around here for everyday, but on holidays and special occasions I pull out the pretty linen napkins.

I love the look of napkin rings and place cards like these that I made for Thanksgiving.

This table setting would also look great with these simple jute napkin rings Anne made!

But with the cute bunny plates, I didn’t want to put anything on top of them.

Isn’t it funny how differently people set their tables?

My mom taught me as a little girl to set a table with the salad/dessert “small” fork on the far left then the dinner “big” fork next to the plate.

And on the right side the spoon should go on the outside and the knife on the inside next to the plate.

Oh and if you use a large spoon too…then it would go little spoon, big spoon, knife.

Well, at least that’s how I set my table but I’ve seen so many variations for place settings.

How do you set your table?

I hope you enjoyed my spring dining room tour and simple tablescape ideas.

And this garden themed tablescape is another design you may love.
