In this post: Spring flower arrangements are one of the easiest ways to add beautiful color to a seasonal tablescape to welcome the season of rebirth and renewal.⇒
Can we talk about how much I want winter to go away?
Yesterday we had a huge snowstorm in the Northeast. It was easily the biggest storm of the season. And typically, the day before the storm, I found myself in the grocery store with hoards of other people. They were all loading up on the usual staples: eggs, milk and bread. And me? I had one thing in my cart.
Not kidding. Not even a bit.
This shouldn’t be terribly shocking. After all, I have a history of this sort of thing. Last storm my cart was brimming with wine and chocolate.
Now, to be fair, we had gotten some groceries over the weekend to replace the food that had to be thrown out when my fridge died. (That story in a future post…) But the thing is, if there’s one thing I want people to know about me, it’s this. I believe the key to happiness is small pleasures. So, if I’m going to be hunkered down in the house for a few days, I definitely want to be sure to have wine, chocolate and flowers.
And with lovely spring flower arrangements… come pretty spring table settings. So today I’m sharing my first spring tablescape of the season.
The inspiration for this table started with these vintage French salad plates. The color is a little stronger than my usual antique dish selections and I knew they would work well with a full color spring bouquet.
I also used the smaller bread plates for additional color on the table, while the clean white dinner plates function as a crisp underpinning for the floral china. Decorative silver chargers provide the base against the bare white-washed tabletop.
I decided to highlight the pink as my key accent color and used my favorite pink linen napkins with their sweet ruffle edging. (See resource list below.) Silver spoon napkin rings work nicely with the silver-toned chargers.
I used gorgeous pink and gold ranunculus, along with grape hyacinths as the core of my spring flower arrangements. (I used one large one on the table and sprinkled a few smaller ones around the house.)
The floral is nestled within a chunky French lettered urn, with eucalyptus branches running down the length of the table.
The brilliant light that shines through the generous windows is a wonderful cover for the brewing storm outside. It’s been so spring-like the past few weeks that I was undeterred by this brief interruption and plowed ahead with my spring fever.
My pink champagne flutes rounded out the picture and I love how they show up so much better against the white table that we recently added.
The final touch was a mix of candlesticks sitting amongst the eucalyptus, reflecting my preference for gold and silver casually used together.
I enjoyed my spring flower arrangements all day today. And I didn’t have eggs, milk, or bread once!
