Spring! I believe it is my favorite season. Its newness reminds me of Easter and the hope Christ’s resurrection gives to dead things – like my sinful life! How thankful I am for life in Christ!
Then spring also makes creation come alive! We can see the beautiful life as described in this passage ~
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteouness, and the people with his truth. Psalm 96:12, 13
Spring is also a great time to bring life inside our homes! It can start at the kitchen or dining room table. I love making pretty tablescapes, but I love it even more when I gather all the needed items from my house and don’t have to purchase one thing!!
I gave myself a challenge to create as many centerpieces for a spring tablescape using the colors green, blue and yellow with just things I had on hand. I set simple dinnerware on the table to give the idea of what the table setting might look like, but I focused on creating different springtime centerpieces. Here are the results ~
#1 – I have had this silk tulip arrangement for quite a few years. It looks so real that most people think I had a delivery from the florist! This dressier centerpiece is high enough that it doesn’t obstruct the view at the table. In other words, you don’t have to pick it up to have a conversation with the person sitting across from you!!
#2 – This is the live plant from my laundry room! I popped it into a yellow pot and that was it! A burlap bow or ribbon would be pretty tied around the pot. This makes a good every day kind of table.
#3 – My sister brought me this cute little felt basket when she visited recently. It’s filled with Easter grass, treats and some plastic eggs. The turquoise cake stand adds a little height and makes it a little more grand than if it was sitting right on the table. This would be a nice centerpiece for Easter breakfast with the family.
#4 – This is a live Asparagus Fern that I keep in my kitchen. Fresh greenery is always a plus to have on hand and put to use in centerpieces! I like it LOTS better than the silk variety! This fern and basket give a more casual look to the table.
#5 – Using an odd number is always wise when you’re adding decor to your home. Here are three blue Mason jars lined in the center of the table with silk yellow flowers spilling over to the other jars.
Well, that was fun! Do you have a favorite? Which do you vote for?
I hope this inspires you to make your kitchen table pretty for spring!
