Spring is officially here and there are so many occasions for using fresh flowers and plants! Easter, May Day, Mother’s Day and Spring birthdays are just a few.
When hosting events or gatherings, I love making the decor simple and sometimes just a few fun items paired with flowers is all you need. Today I am sharing tips for creating the Perfect Spring Tablescape using Plants.
One can never too many plants in my opinion… although I am quite the plant lover, so I might be biased there!
6 Tips on how to set the perfect Spring Plant Table
1. Create different heights and levels.
I love creating little visual moments on a table and one great way to do that is with items at different heights. Using cake plates, books, or even cutting boards are great ways to add varied height. I especially love this adorable soft pink cake plate and mint green jadeite cake stand.
Both the green and the soft pink color together are the perfect combination for a spring time party.
2. Fill in empty spaces with flowers.
Tucking in peonies or other seasonal flowers here and there can really add a perfect romantic touch. They also are great for filling negative space. Fresh flowers also add a lovely floral fragrance, but it can get expensive quickly.
Often times, I will use one bouquet of fresh flowers and mix in faux flowers with it. This helps the cost go down and you can always reuse those flowers at your next party.
3. Add little details to your table decor.
Hiding little details into your table-scape is also such a fun touch. Bonus, these simple white ceramic bunnies fit perfectly with the plant table theme, too!
These are also a fun trio of decor rabbits.
4. Mix and match hard and soft elements.
I love breaking rules in party decor… soft whimsical ferns paired with sculptural cacti – that’s the way to go! I also brought in this simple gold metal frame house, which is a favorite piece for me.
And what better way to serve your favorite drinks than a gorgeous copper bowl filled with ice! I also really love this low copper bowl with white on the outside. It’s a piece that you could use for so many different functions.
5. Add garland to the wall to draw the eye up.
Adding height with garland is another way to add drama to your table. It also encourages the viewer to look up and that added space helps make more of a statement.
Whether you add in a floral garland, a string of lights or even simple cut up colored plastic straws strung on yarn like I did here, adding something fun to the wall definitely creates a fun twist to your party.
6. Provide delicious Spring treats
What party is a party without food! You could add light cucumber sandwiches, a tray of freshly cut vegetables and dips and a fruit salad. But don’t forget to offer a delicious treats like carrot cake!
Keeping the color palette fairly neutral so the plants can do the talking is the direction I took on this table. And the soft pink cake plate, the jadeite cake plate and the copper bowl all were slight pops of color that fit in perfectly.
The next time you decide to host friends, be sure to shop your own home for plants to fill your beautiful table!
