How to Decorate a Table for Spring
I love entertaining and dressing up the dining room table for guests.
No matter how big or small the event is, I enjoy designing a beautiful centerpiece and setting a gorgeous table that coordinates with it.
Depending on your decorating style and type of event, consider whether it is a formal or casual event.
Step 1 – Choose a Party Theme
Since our supper club is a brunch, I’m setting a casual table with lots of pretty flowers.
Cause for me, it’s all about the flowers.
Step 2 – Cover or Uncover the Table
Do you prefer a table that is covered with a tablecloth or an exposed table?
Because I love my farmhouse table, I rarely cover it and use table runners instead to add cozy layers, texture and dimension.
For this casual table decor idea, I used my pretty jute table runner.
Step 3 – Start with a Centerpiece Idea for the Dining Table
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love to make centerpieces.
Because every gorgeous table starts with a centerpiece!
They can be designed with live or faux plants.
If you want a centerpiece that will last for a season without the care, I suggest going with faux.
There are some amazingly realistic looking faux plants out there.
And if you want to decorate with faux, start collecting seasonal faux greens and flowers using these tips.
When making a centerpiece, start with a vessel that inspires you.
For me, I am obsessed with my vintage toolbox.
It looks incredible on my farmhouse dining table and I love the vintage rustic vibe.
Since I am a huge fan of flowers, I am decorating my table with a magnolia flower theme for this brunch.
When styling a centerpiece with plants and flowers, consider these tips for container design.
Step 4 – Choose Your Dinnerware and Table Decor
For most of my tablescapes, I typically use either my everyday dinnerware or my Lenox.
But for this table, I’m using this gorgeous magnolia dinnerware.
Isn’t it so pretty? I love how the dishes coordinate with one another.
When setting the table, focus on layers. Start with a pretty placemat or charger, then layer the dinnerware.
Since these dishes are a little busy, I did not add any additional decor to the place settings.
However, if my dishes had a little less going on, I’d top them off with a decorative item like I did HERE.
Step 5 – Add Glassware, Table Linens and Utensils
To finish off the table, consider the glassware. When I set a casual table like this one, I love to use ball jar glasses.
But I’ve also used my crystal stemware with a casual table to make it feel more elegant like THIS spring table decor idea.
And finally, add the napkin linens and utensils so guests can enjoy the meal.
