Spring has sprung and I think it’s safe to say everyone has the spring itch. The itch to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. I have always loved this time of year and everything that spring represents. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.
This holiday season, I celebrated Easter with the most fabulous and refreshing table spread by West Elm. I absolutely love hosting and entertaining in my home. Dressing my table and creating a beautiful tablescape for each occasion is my favorite thing to do and is something that has been instilled in me by my mother at a very young age. Paying attention to the littlest details is key.
With things somewhat getting back to normal, I am looking forward to showing off my new modern pieces from West Elm this spring. The bright whites, with hues of blue, mixed with earthy tones, and a touch of gold adds a refreshing, modern twist to my dinnerware and sets the tone for creating my own traditions with my little family. #MyWestElmTradition
TIPS FOR THE PERFECT SPRING TABLE – This year I’m obsessed with rich blues, neutrals (duh), bright whites and touches of gold. I add my color with REAL flowers. I always use real flowers to table set. I also opted out of a vase and decided to lay the flowers and greenery directly on the table for a more modern up-to-date look.
- TIP: Select a color palette
- TIP: One simple way to create a cohesive look on a table, is to keep the base elements neutral (tablecloth, chargers, plates) and then add color with flowers and napkins.
- TIP: Don’t hesitate to fold table cloths or even pieces of fabric to make a table runner. Once the table is set, no one will notice!
- TIP: Keep the height of your centerpiece below eye level, so your guests aren’t blocked from seeing one another.
- TIP: Always use fresh flowers
- Remember the little things and details
- Try to make the centerpiece unique and stand out in some way
- TIP: Play around with mixing styles that may not seem to “match”. Often this is the best way to create a beautiful table.
- TIP: Add fresh citrus as accent pieces
- TIP: If there is a color you seem to always gravitate toward, consider getting some wine glasses that contain that color.
- TIP: Keep a few sprigs of whatever flowers you use for your centerpiece to place on each place setting.
- TIP: Add candles to your table to extend the look of the tablescape from end to end.
- TIP: Incorporate things that you love in your table design…make it personal and your guests will feel that intention.
- TIP: Try to take it outside
