This time of year, especially in the northeast, we start to gravitate towards fresh flowers and greenery. After a string of long, cold months, seeing new life all around is refreshing and exhilarating. There are so many ways to take inspiration from the blooming world around you for your tabletop decor, and we’ve collected a few of our favorite ideas to share!
Spring Blooms in a Watering Can
This rather casual look is perfect for the gardener or outdoorsy types. The watering can looks darling with a fresh bouquet in it, but once the cut flowers have passed, it’ll still nourish blooms by watering them all spring and summer long.
Birds Eggs and Nests
Whether faux nests or real, with a few robin’s blue eggs tucked in, delicate birds nests are the ultimate sign of spring, and look lovely with many different spring-inspired settings.
Leftover berry baskets are a unique and adorable alternative to traditional flower vases, and give a subtle nod to the coming summer months when berries will be bountiful.
Letter Block Decor
Letter blocks are perfect for the occasion – especially in whatever colors you’re picked for your theme – and can spell out generic words like “Spring” or “Brunch” – or something more personal like a family moniker. They’re a pleasant addition to any table for a different and interesting twist.
Petite Plants in Eggshells
Eggs aren’t only for dyeing this time of year – they’re also the perfect little “pots” for petite plants. Small succulents, crocuses, and other spring blooms look so pretty tucked into little egg shells – all you need is a little bit of damp dirt and you’re good to go!
Floral Table Runners
Looking for something to spice up your outdoor table space? Mis-matched floral fabrics arranged together can create a beautiful base for a floral-inspired table setting.
