Spring has sprung here in Nebraska! The first little blooms are peeking up out of the ground, and the lawn is getting greener each day. The trees are showing signs of the most beautiful shade of green before they explode into full leaves.
The reawakening of the Earth this season is so inspiring! I couldn’t help but use that inspiration to set a lovely little spring table for an intimate luncheon with loved ones.
It all started with some precious yellow plates and an antique Royal Copley bird planter which were both given to me by my momma years ago.
A Trip To The Garden Center
There is something spectacular about that first trip to your local garden center when they are bursting at the seams with new plants in every variety of shape, color, and texture. I could hang out there for hours.
After gathering several spring-themed containers I own, I headed to our local store to find just the right plants to fill them. I decided it made sense to pick up little annuals that I could transfer to my outdoor pots once they were done gracing my spring table.
Check out my beautiful collection! It was quite an economical way to bring life to my table.
Some Unlikely Pairings
I have been enjoying the set of gold-trimmed dinnerware and gold silverware that I was lucky enough to pick up from our local area exchange. They are a departure from the look of my inspiration pieces, but juxtapositioning rustic and refined pieces is one of my favorite things to do on a table.
A fantastic macrame table runner from Hobby Lobby became the perfect backdrop to bring all of those pieces together. I just love its chunkiness. And the fringe….swoon!
A Bird’s Eye View (Get It?)
A Fun Accident
Did you happen to notice my napkin rings? They are actually CURTAIN RINGS! I pulled them off of a rod I am not using at the moment.
It actually made me a little giddy when the idea popped into my head that I could use those to clip name cards to each setting! The teeny flower detail on the cards helps to repeat the design on the plates.
Chicken Salad and Cream Puffs
Did you wonder when I was going to mention the mouth-watering chicken salad and cream puffs adorning the table? 🙂 Click here for the amazing chicken salad recipe on my momma’s food blog, GB’s Kitchen. The cream puff recipe will also be there soon!
How do you like to set a table for spring? What is your inspiration? I can’t wait to hear from you!!! Enjoy the beautiful season ahead full of our Creator’s brilliant creativity. God bless! 🙂
