Spring-Inspired Place Settings: Ideas & Inspiration

Spring is in the air! I can’t wait to start spreading out all the floral details and bright colors. Soon you’ll be hosting ladies lunches, afternoon teas and some neighborly dinners while the sun starts setting later into the evening. So, we’re here to get you ready, prepared and inspired! Make sure your table is just as stylish as your living room decor. Take a look at all of these spring place setting ideas!

Arguably the most popular season, spring is meant to bring out the beauty in anything and everything. The most vibrant colors, the most playful patterns and the most feminine flavors. Don’t be afraid to mix up patterns and designs. Spring is a lot about fun and spontaneity, and that includes in decor. Make something playful and eclectic by pairing up contrasting designs and colors on the table. This is perfect for a ladies get-together or casual family dinner.

You can also go with something just as springlike, but a bit simpler, subtle and refined. Pick a small, dainty dandelion and set in atop a yellow napkin, yellow-detailed plate and pale yellow tablecloth. It’s a conclusive, modern look and it’s just as trendy as the eclectic feel as well. Of course, you can pick any spring flower and use it as the focal point to your tablescape.

You may also want to focus on a particular, colorful print. Tie-dye, stripes, polka-dots and florals all evoke a sense of the springtime spirit. Highlight and enhance the print you chose by setting it off with the same print in complimentary colors or solid, color-blocking. A solid-colored napkin and tablecloth set off by a polka-dot plate or a floral napkin can be set off by a solid salad bowl. There are so many options.

But don’t worry too much. You don’t have to go above and beyond what you’re used to. Spring isn’t only about feminine frills and girly designs. You can also inspire a spring spirit by using more subtle, toned-down decor. Organic, nature-inspired pieces like bamboo place mats or wicker fruit bowls can also be added to a spring place setting. Just add a color or two that can brighten up the collection, like a powdery blue or a simple yellow.

Remember, there are spring holidays too. Easter and St. Patrick’s Day can inspire a lot of fun decorating adventure. Green tablescapes or glittery, pastel Easter eggs can make a fun tablescape too! Plan ahead to create something memorable!
