Love Your Home Challenge: Set A Spring Table

     Although it’s still snowy and cold outside, Melissa has motivated me via her #loveyourhomechallenge to bring some spring cheer into my home and prep for this year’s Easter tablescape. I’ve cleared the normal daily clutter off our dining table and created two centerpieces composed of eggs and crocuses. I’ve currently used natural egg shells, but I’m contemplating dying them in colors to match the place settings. I also placed moss in one glass vase to cover up the crocus pot and old straw in the other. I’m as yet also undecided on which of those I like best, though I’m leaning toward the moss. What do you think?

     I love ceramics and glass, and I enjoy combining them into colorful place settings. Here, I’ve mixed my set of vintage Alfred Meakin “Audubon Birds of America“ dinner plates that each feature a different illustration along with some duck-egg blue salad plates, Portmeirion “Birds of Britain” appetizer/dessert plates and a set of glass bowls from Biot in France. The glass bowls blend very well with a set of wine goblets I found years ago in Murano in Italy and a set of 1950s water glasses my mother-in-law gave me. I complete the look with my favorite spring-time silverware set embossed with daffodils, which I notice need a good polish. Good thing I’ve got a couple of weeks left before Easter to get to that little chore!

     I wish everyone a cheery spring season!

    Hi Jennifer! Love this look! I am partial to the moss look. You’ve inspired me to start my spring table. We are having a milder winter this year but it seems March has brought some real weather mixing. Sunny and bright one day and a snow squall the next! 🙂 Still hasn’t dampened my spirits. Happy March!

    Your table setting is beautiful and very spring-like., I, love how you used different found treasures and mixed them together. The result is stunning and so fresh. The green of your water glasses plays off the blue of the appetizer plates? Nice job! I like the moss. The dark green brings in a pretty organic look to your table. Enjoy Springband have a blessed Easter.

      Hi, Maria! All is well considering the terrorist attack in Belgium this week. Family and friends are safe, and everyone’s seeking a return to daily normalcy. Appreciate the hugs! 🙂 Thanks for your kind comments! I do enjoy mixing the glasses and bowls with different china patterns year-round and think the jewel-tones also work well during the Christmas holiday season. Happy Easter!

    Hi Jennifer,
    I love your table. I’m not a spring girl it’s my least favorite season. But your table may change that! I’m definitely going to give your idea a try. I love finding ways to bring fresh flowers in my house. I never used to do that….I had no clue what I was missing!!!
    Thanks for sharing!
