Set the table for spring
I have been wanting to put together a selection of creative spring table ideas for a while. There are so many gorgeous spring table ideas and spring table crafts out there that I had to share, but if it's still cold, save this feature for later. It doesn't quite inspire in freezing weather!
Don't you just love it when spring flowers start to bloom. If you planted spring-flowering bulbs in the garden, the beautiful crisp colours are refreshing and the perfect way to herald in the spring and summer months.
If you didn't plant spring-flowering bulbs, your local florist will definitely have bouquets of spring flowers for dressing up your spring table.
Sunny yellow daffodills are the most popular spring-flowering bulbs and they fill a garden with the first splash of fresh colour. Happy and bright, daffodills are perfect for dressing up a spring table. In fact, they are perfect for bringing indoors as well.
Pastel shades are always popular for a spring table setting, and what better way to introduce soft pastel shades than with roses in pale pinks, orange and lemon. Pop your cut roses into crystal glasses, add a sprig or two of greenery and there you have it.
If you are planning a spring wedding, nothing could be a more simple and affordable way to dress up your tables.
Of course, bold and bright colours celebrate spring as well, and what better way to display spring flowers and greenery than in colourful containers. To add instant colour to your table, wrap assorted containers in wrapping paper or fabrics and embellish with ribbons, twine, cotton and braid.
There are some many gorgeous papers and fabrics that you could use, and if you wanted something a bit more permanent, finish off with two or three coats of Mod Podge or clear acrylic sealer. Fresh flowers, wheat grass, moss and herbs such as lavender and rosemary look and small good on the table.
If you prefer to have a more formal setting on your table, add thin slices of lemon or orange to clear vases to punch up the colour. These dazzling yellow tulips are displayed in a clear, square vase with added lemon slices that add zesty colour to the table arrangement.
Mr Price Home has the most wonderful selection of colourful table settings. And what's nice is that you can afford to buy a few items to add to your table - without breaking the bank.
