About this time every year, I start longing for Spring in a bad way. And with this added rain and overall gloominess that has descended on this part of the great states, it has been even worse than usual.
So, to perk myself and our creative team up, I took advantage of an ordinary brunch meeting and created a Spring tablescape to generate some good feels and maybe some inspo around here. Spring and Summer weddings are approaching, and that means bridal showers are upon us! So, if you find yourself planning a bridal shower, or any other type of small gathering this Spring, this post is for you!
This time around I stuck to good ol' Target for some goodies to make this table extra springy. Usually, we use Anthropology, West Elm and some of our local shops too, but this was a last minute put together so we needed something quick, pretty and simple! This is good news for you all because you can get everything you see here in one stop!
One way to stick to a budget (and have some creative fun), is to create your own arrangements. Of course, this only applies to a small gathering, leave the wedding florals to the pros! Make sure you don't overwhelm yourself, create your arrangements the night before if you intend to go this route. Drink some wine, grab some stems and find your creative side!
So, when you think of Spring florals, what do you think of? For me, it is TULIPS, TULIPS, TULIPS! When I see the Tulips start sprouting in my yard and on the floral racks, my heart skips a beat. It means SPRING IS NEAR! With that said, these obviously were my flowers of choice for this table.
Side bar: I love repurposing things to use as vases. These little juice containers make the sweetest bud vases! (Thank you to my three-year-old for having an apple juice addiction.) Or, you can invest in new vases with the money you save on paying someone to create your bouquets! In this case, I found some fabulous Spring vases that were perfect for my Spring table. (Okay, done digressing.)
These napkins were my favorite part of the whole scheme. Each napkin was a different pastel color, which was perfect because I was already creating a clean looking table (we needed room to spread out concepts, pictures, inspos, and of course let's not forget food), but I wanted something to add a little variation. The eggs allowed for more contrast/color mixing.
Personalizing each setting is my goal at every event I put together, large or small. In this small gathering, I wrote the guest's names on these decorative eggs. I still get a little bit giddy when I sit down to a meal and see my name telling me that this is my special spot. It makes me feel extraordinary to know I was expected and planned for, which is why I always try to create that feeling!
Thank you for reading! I hope you got some good feels and some good ideas while reading! If so, please comment and share! We love to hear from our readers!
