A spring botanical tablescape – perfect for Easter too!
Do you put a lot of thought into your table settings and tablescapes? I love decorating my dining room table. Even if it’s just a casual dinner with friends, I try to make the table look special. Recently, I found these beautiful antique plates and butter pats. Immediately I knew that they would be perfect for a spring botanical tablescape.
Friends, you are in for a real treat today. Our sweet friend Angie of Postcards From the Ridge organized this Spring Tour. You’ll be able to gather spring inspiration for your mantels, tablescapes, DIY & Crafts, recipes and outdoor spaces.
Back to My Table
The botanical design on the plates have a greenish-gray pattern. I was so excited that they paired perfectly with my antique pitcher. By the way, this pitcher was a $4.00 thrifted find and the plate sets were only $10.00 for 6 plates and 6 butter pats. Truth be told, I have an addiction for pretty dishes and china. Most pieces in my collection were inherited or I have purchased for very little money. There are far worse things to be addicted to. Right?
A Good Addiction
When I began to set the table, I pulled out other items that I thought would look great together. Most pieces have an element of wood – twig placements, wood slab cheese board, wooden pedestal cloche and more.
Make it Special
I like to make special tags and place cards for guests too. Even if there are just four of us at the table.
Using an Aubusson blue gift bag and botanical flowers printed on my home computer, I created place cards, menu cards and food tags. If you’re interested to know how I made the cards, let me know. I can do a post about it if you would like.
The menu cards were placed on these DIY place card holders that I created a few years ago. Guests are always curious to know “what’s for dinner”.
Before dinner is served, we like to have a casual cocktail hour. A cheese plate is perfect before supper.
How cute is this wooden stand and cloche? It was on the clearance aisle at HomeGoods for $5.00! Total score. It’s also perfect to store garlic herb butter that we used on a fresh country loaf of Italian bread.
Typically, I use white non-fragrant flowers for a tablescape. These hydrangeas fit the bill perfectly.
This covered wicker serving plate looks so French and vintage to me. Another great piece to add the wood element.
