Get simple ideas to decorate your table for spring in a modern farmhouse style. Neutral tablescape featuring beautiful large floral stems.
Our family is usually away on vacation for Easter every year so honestly, I haven’t done much decorating for the holiday since my children were much younger. It got harder for them to miss school for family vacations every year so we would go away like the millions of others over spring break. It was so much easier (and cheaper!) to go on vacation during the off times, but school comes first.
This year we didn’t make plans for spring break since we will be going away twice over the summer. So for the first time in years, we will be home for Easter and I thought it would be fun to create a simple neutral dining room tablescape.

If you remember I found that wood board at HomeGoods before Christmas and used it as the anchor of my holiday centerpiece. It’s the perfect neutral starting point for a simple table centerpiece. The warm wood tones pop against our painted white farmhouse table. And it was only $12.99…gotta love a HomeGoods bargain!
Two large glass jars filled with a few floral stems set on the wood board create the perfect simple farmhouse centerpiece. The dainty white flowers are so pretty for spring. And this centerpiece is neutral enough to leave out all spring…maybe even into summer.
Classic place setting
We will be using our everyday plates from PotteryBarn rather than our fancy china dishes since the casual bunny plates coordinate with them so well. I found the cute plates with the bunny at Hobby Lobby and thought they were perfect for my simple tablescape. The seagrass chargers from World Market add a natural element and break up the white plates on a white table.
Isn’t it funny how different people set their tables? My mom taught me to set it with the salad/dessert fork on the far left then the dinner fork and on the right side the spoon on the outside and the knife on the inside. But I’ve seen so many variations for place settings. How do you set your table?
The gray and white striped cloth napkins were another HomeGoods find. And for only $7.99 for 6 napkins, I think they were a great investment! With a neutral color, I’ll be able to use these all the time.
Casual place setting
I didn’t want to leave my table set for weeks before our holiday dinner, so I put away the flatware and changed the placement of the napkins for a bit more of a casual look.

I love the look of napkin rings and place cards like these that I made for Thanksgiving. But with the cute bunny plates, I didn’t want to put anything on top of them. By placing the napkins behind the plate, it allows the design to be seen and I really love how the gray napkin looks between the two white plates.
