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…
