Nothing says spring quite like flowers and greenery, so bring it to the table! Turn a glass jar into a fabulous succulent display and enjoy the richness of the earth at dinnertime. This easy project will make you feel as though you have a personal jar of springtime in your home. If getting fresh blooms isn’t an option, head to your local craft store and pick up some high-quality fake flowers. Use a simple vase or jar for a springtime-casual look.
2. Glass and wood
This covered cheese dish is the perfect example of rustic charm. Spring marks a new season of appreciation for nature’s beauty, which makes this the perfect time to showcase natural elements. Bring a little wood and a little glass to the table for a casual and fuss-free setting. For larger dishes and desserts, try a DIY display. Purchase a larger round of wood at a craft or home improvement store and use a cake stand lid to cover a display of cupcakes, pile of cookies or basket of rolls.
3. Colorful linens
Give your springtime decor a base by laying out linens with touches of bright, happy colors. Ditch the heavy tablecloth and opt for a runner or place mats that also allow for a little extra exposed wood, giving your table a more rustic look. This runner offers neutral tones that prevent it from stealing the show or overpowering the table with too much color.
4. Mismatched dishes
Complete your casual springtime table with all of your favorite dishes. Layer white dishes with pretty patterns and mix in cheery prints and soft hues for a fun look that brings the beauty of spring’s colors indoors. This look is a great way to combine vintage favorites, family heirlooms and bargain finds for a cottage style tablescape.
