It still feels a little surreal to be typing the word “Spring” in a post, especially referring to spring decor in my house! There is still plenty of snow outside, but with it finally starting to melt, and there is excitement in the air as we anticipate warmer weather around the corner! I had to laugh the other day, when my daughter saw glimpse’s of grass for the first time in some of our pathways, she screamed with excitement, so even the kids are ready for the snow to be gone! I’m teaming up today with a few blogging friends to share some spring decor with all of you!
I love to load the middle of our dining room table up with a seasonal tablescape. So for spring this year I used a collection of milk glass goblets & vases and filled them with fresh flowers from our local grocery store.
You can’t help but think of fresh blooms when you are thinking of spring, and while I typically tend to go for yellow hued flowers, this year I couldn’t get white tulips out of my head. Of course when it came time to buying the flowers there were no white tulips to be found! So I grabbed a variety of different white flowers they did have, including a few green ones for a little pop!
I know with spring, it’s fun to bring out bright colors, but if you’ve been around here for awhile, even a little bit, you know I have a love for neutrals, and these muted tones help me set the scene for nature to take center stage. I started by taking a simple white table cloth, and folding it into thirds so it would act as a runner.
Then I staggered my milk glass collection in different heights and sizes and filled them with my variety of flowers. Instead of combining all the different types of flowers I got, I kept them separate in their bunches, so that each container held a different type of flower. Daises, english roses, daffodils, hydrangea, even baby’s breath got in on the action.
Next for the place settings, I grabbed my favorite white dishes, some very pale yellow cotton napkins, and layered them all on top my new favorite twig chargers from Painted Fox Treasures! The moment I saw these I knew they were a must for a spring tablescape! They help add that extra element of nature that is carried throughout the rest of the space.
I finished things off by adding my favorite mercury glass votives, for a little sparkle. It’s my favorite metal to add to a space!
I shared on Instagram last week that the striped wall in my dining room was getting a refresh for spring as well! I had been wanting to change it up for awhile, and am loving botanical prints these days, so I took the opportunity to incorporate some in some reclaimed wood frames we made for a little gallery wall. I love the muted wood tones these frames add to the space, and will be sharing all about this little wall in my next post! Promise 🙂
I added a few little pops of green, little wooden birdhouses, and faux birds stacked with some leftover deconstructed books from this project, to keep things simple and fresh on our mantle.
And lastly, you may have noticed, but there was one more piece in our dining room that got a little refresh for spring. When we first made our table and bench, I had just given the bench a quick coat of grey stain, because I just couldn’t make my mind up on what I wanted the final look to be. Recently I gave the legs and base of the bench a quick coat of white paint with some chalk paint I had on hand, and I still might distress it a bit, but I’m liking the look of it much more now.
