Spring Inspired Dining Room Tablescape
Today, I’m excited to share our Spring Inspired Dining Room Tablescape as we partner with some fantastic bloggers for Day 1 of the Spring Festival Blog Hop! This blog hop is hosted by my sweet friend Kendra of Joy in Our Home and will run through Friday, March 23, so it’s going to be such a treat all week long.
Can you guys believe we’re a couple of weeks away from Easter? We can’t either! Thankfully, we’ve been happily celebrating Spring since the beginning of March in order to soak in every ounce of fun this season has to offer. I hope you guys have been too!
If you’re new here or if you’re coming over from the dynamic duo Timeless Creations, welcome, we’re so glad to have you. You can find our Spring Inspired Front Porch Tour here, our Spring Inspired Living Room here and our Spring Inspired Breakfast Nook here.
Our Spring Dining Room Tablescape was completely inspired by our love of flowers. The minute the weather turns just the slightest bit warmer in Florida we’re making weekly trips to the nursery to buy plants for the front porch, the back patio and our light filled home.
Decorating your dining room table with plants, flowers, and herbs from your local home and garden center is an easy way to create a Spring look without having to spend a lot of extra money on flower arrangements.
These potted Violas and Lavender are some of our favorites!
The flowers are all corralled in this Dutch Inspired Tulip Crate we made my Mom a few years ago which makes them super easy to contain. We keep saying we need to make another one for our house because we borrow hers all the time. You can find out how to make your own here.
The moss table runner was created by using four moss placemats we made last year. Oh my gosh, you guys, they are SO easy to make! They’re really nice to have because you can use them for a variety of seasons and in multiple ways. If you want to make some too, you can find all the details here.
Are the birds chirping at your house yet? Ours too! We feel blessed to have all sorts of scrub birds and marsh birds that visit us daily. They leave the best treasures behind after nesting season is over. These are faux eggs we decorate with during Spring.
For the place settings we chose a mix of dainty Haviland china and these egg plates we borrowed from my Mom.
What can I say, she has the best stuff!
We like to keep it simple by mixing and matching different patterns for a low fuss look. You can usually find vintage pieces like these at places like thrift stores, charity shops, estate sales and antique malls for reasonable prices.
We also found these napkin rings and napkins at our local thrift store. White napkins are our favorites because they can almost always be thrown in the washing machine with a bit of bleach or Oxi-Clean after dinner parties.
The dining room hutch was created by marrying a buffet bottom with a bookcase top and filled with pieces of ironstone we’ve collected over years of treasuring hunting trips.
The pecans came from our family’s pecan grove. We’re totally sentimental about them all year long because they remind us of so many happy memories.
Speaking of happy memories, we decorated our dining room chandelier with branches from our Bridal Bush. They were a little late blooming this year so we’re excited to have an abundance of these sweet white flowers this close to Easter. I’ll show you how you can make your own flower crown tomorrow!
The Painted Hinge is the next stop on the tour! You’ll love Michelle’s farmhouse style. Also, don’t forget the Spring Festive Blog Hop will be taking place all week so make sure to check out everything these creative ladies have in store…

Your dining room tablescape is just beautiful Coco. I especially love the little birds nests in the plant pots. Thanks for the inspiration. Julie
I appreciate it, Julie, thank you so much! It’s definitely a gift to be able to have so many trees and all the marsh land surrounding our property. We really never know what we’re going to find so it’s always a fun treasure hunt. Hope your day is a fantastic one, CoCo
Hey CoCo – Your spring tablescape is fabulous! We love how you mix and match your beautiful placesettings! Your love and appreciation of nature is evident with your lovely displays. The nests, flowers and moss are so pretty. Adding the bridal bush to the chandelier is a true crowning glory! Love it all. PS – make a tulip crate for us too 🙂 Hugs.
ha ha there are so many things I need to put in that GA crate! They’re so easy to make too, we should just nail it down already ha ha. Thank you so much for your kind words, they are always appreciated as are the two of you. Big hugs, CoCo
So beautiful!! I love the flower crown on the chandelier too!!
Thank you, Malinda! I don’t know if you have a Bridal Bush or not but their little white flowers smell good too. Our bush is literally spilling over with branches so it was a fun way to enjoy them inside as well as outside too. Hugs, CoCo
This is such a gorgeous table! I love the huge pots with the fresh flowers! I also love those plates with the robins egg design on them.
Thanks so much, Carrie! I’ve been a little obsessed with plants and flowers this year because it’s been such a mild start to Spring in Florida. They always remind me of fresh promises. Hope you have the happiest day, CoCo
So very beautiful, friend, as always! All your plants are such a sign of spring and the lavender especially is just the perfect touch to your dining table! I love that you borrow things from your mom.. so sweet! Thanks for joining me on this tour again, sweet lady!
You’re so sweet, Kendra, thank you! It’s always fun blog hopping with you. You’re always so kind and encouraging too. I wish we lived closer we could totally meet up for a latte. Sending you hugs and thank you so much for putting this all together, CoCo
BEAUTIFUL! Everything is so lovely… and has such a rustic, farmhouse feel. The bridal bush flowers in your chandelier is perfection… I want to plant one of those in my back yard. Happy Spring, CoCo!
Thank you bunches, Kelly! The Bridal Bush was a bit late blooming this year but she is definitely putting on a show now he he. Those little white flowers get me every time. I think you’ll love it too! Hugs, CoCo
I love your dining room! And your tablescape is gorgeous – the tulip crate makes the perfect spring centerpiece!
I appreciate your sweet words, Michelle, thank you so much! Hugs, CoCo
This is really beautiful, Coco. I could honestly spend my last dime on plants and I love the way you’ve incorporated the real thing on your table. The mix of dishes is gorgeous! I would love to make one of the tulip trays. There’s just something about them….
I know just what you mean, Stacey! I would be at the plant nursery every weekend if I could. Plants and flowers always bring such hope and promise to whatever space they’re in no matter if it’s indoors or out. I love all of your flowers and I’m happy to be twinsies with you any time! Hugs, CoCo
I am just seriously in love with every single element in this spring dining room!! The crate, flowers, buffet with Ironstone, the mix-matched plates, just Everything!!!! Fabulous job!
You’re so sweet, Kristen, thank you so much! I love so many things on your tablescape too. It’s definitely been fun to see how everyone welcomes the Spring season into their homes. I’m so glad Kendra brought all of us together. Hope your day is a fun one, CoCo
Your spring tablescape is gorgeous! I love the dutch inspired tulip crate and all the beautiful flowers! We are still buried under 3 feet in snow in Vermont and looking at your dining room made me hopeful that spring will soon be here:) Thank you so much for all the inspiration!
I hope it will be there soon! I know your area of the country has been hit especially hard with snowfall this year. My parents were just a West Point last week and they could not get over all the snow. It definitely feels like a blessing to have a early Spring in Florida so I’ll be sending some sunshine your way! Hugs for a happy day, CoCo
What a beautiful spring dining room Coco! I love the fresh flowers and herbs, and your impressive ironstone collection. I’ve collected white ironstone for many years and it’s my absolute favorite!
Thank you so much, Cindy! I have such an ironstone weakness. It’s very hard to find in Florida so most of the time I have to pick up pieces here and there at antique malls or outdoor shows but I’m always excited to find any piece big or small and I’m sure you feel the same way – it’s always a treasure hunting adventure. Hope your day is a fun one, CoCo
Ohhh that giant centerpiece crate is the bomb!!!! And the moss table runner is soooo pretty!!!! Very gorgeous table setting!!!
Thank you, Christine! When my mom was younger she would travel to the tulip fields in Holland for vacation so it was fun to surprise her and make her that crate. I need to make myself one now too 🙂 Hope your day is fabulous, CoCo
Such a gorgeous spring tablescape. I’m loving the Dutch inspired tulip crate and all of the fresh flowers you used on the table. Perfect for spring.
I really appreciate it, Krisi, thank you so much! Having flowers this early in the season is definitely a perk of living in Florida. It’s always fun to go to the nursery and pick a few new things out to try. Hope you have the happiest Spring, CoCo
Beautiful as always CoCo!
Thank you bunches, Bonnie! Hugs, CoCo
Your tablescape is so pretty! Perfect for Spring and Easter 🙂 Love the flowers!! Pinned!
Thank yo so much. I am super excited about trying your Pop-Tar Bars. They look amazing! Hope you have a fun day, CoCo
Wow, what a stunning table! I love how rustic the centerpiece is, combined with the beautiful layered plates and table settings. Absolutely gorgeous!
I appreciate it, Tara, thank you so much! I definitely have a vintage china/plate weakness that constantly has to be controlled ha ha. It always makes for exciting treasure hunting opportunities though. Have the best day, CoCo
Beautiful ideas! Love your mossy runner!
Thank you so much, Amber! It was probably the easiest thing on the table to make which is totally my jam 🙂 Hope your day is a fun one, CoCo
I don’t even know where to start! I love your table! The flower pots in the tulip crate! The mixed china! The chandelier! Its all so beautiful! I’m so inspired!! Thank you!
You’re so sweet, Kristin, thank you! We love flowers any time of the year so it’s always fun to be able to decorate with them both inside and out. Can’t wait to discover more about you and your gorgeous home! I hope your day is fun and full of adventures, CoCo
This is stunning, CoCo! I love the greenery on the chandelier. Also, such a great idea to use potted plants. I normally use flower arrangements, not so much potted plants/flowers in a tablescape (because I never really thought of doing that). So inspiring… I’m going to have to copy you and add some potted ones this year. LOVE IT!!!
Thank you so much, Marly! Our front porch spans a good portion of our home so we are always bringing all sorts of plants inside and out. It’s definitely one of my favorite ways to decorate because they can moved and used in so many different ways. Hope your spring is fantastic all season long, CoCo
Such a pretty tablescape!! I love it!
Thank you bunches, Bethany! I appreciate it. Hope your weekend is a fabulous one, CoCo
I can just imagine eating Easter lunch at this table! It looks fabulous! The colors are so soft and pretty. 🙂
Thank you, Kim! We’ve definitely made some fun memories around this table and we’re all kinds of excited for Easter. I hope you and your family are looking forward to all good things too! Happy weekend, Coco
Very pretty Spring table!! It makes me want to head to the nursery and pick out flowers – and we still have snow! Just love all the natural elements in the centerpiece.
Oh my gosh, Ann, I can’t believe you guys have snow still! We think it’s so pretty because we never have it but most of my friends that live up north and in the Midwest are definitely ready to see a lot more spring and a little less snow. If I had a way to bottle up all this Florida sunshine I would send it to you in a minute. Hugs for a happy day, CoCo
Love the ideas & love your name….The Crowned Goat!
