Is anyone fed up with Mother Nature? Come on ….throw us a bone of nice weather please! Today I am talking about our Top 5 Styling Spring Tablescape Tips. A couple weeks ago I shared a fun spring tablescape that I did for HomeGoods and the dishes are so amazing! I don’t normally get excited over dishes, in fact, I don’t normally get too excited over setting a table. -ha. BUT this time, I found some really pretty dishes that can be used all through Spring and Summer. The colors are amazing and full of life.

#1 Pick colors that work well together. I decided to go with pretty pastel colors for our Spring tablescape. You can’t go wrong with pink, blue and white.

Styling a table can be overwhelming especially when you don’t know what color scheme you want. For me, I always work around one or two items that I love and then build off of that. For this tablescape, I found these amazing flowered pink and blue dishes at HomeGoods that I just about fell over when I saw them. For those of you who shop at HomeGoods, you know you need to scoop up a favorite find fast because if you don’t, someone else will grab it.

#2 Layer your placemat, dishes and linens.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns! I decided that the patterned cardboard styled placemats would look fabulous with the pink and blue flowered dishes. How did I make the patterns work together? At first I tried a patterned dish on top of the placemat and hated it so I decided to break up the pattern with a white dish.

Looks kind of cute right? A set of white dishes when decorating any tablescape is a must. You can’t go wrong with a set of white dishes and these are pretty spectacular with the pattern edge.  At $2 a piece from HomeGoods, that’s a bargain.

#3 Choose solid serving pieces when working with patterned placemats and dishes. The sold pink water pitcher and cake stand coordinated nicely and worked well with the patterns on the dishes. For me, I love mixing and matching patterns but I always balance out the pattern with a few solid pieces. I am not a fan of a busy looking table.

#4 Incorporate something that is living! Flowers and/or plants are a must on most tablescapes. For this particular Spring tablescape I added fresh flowers and a cute DIY flowering plant centerpiece that I made using a silver bowl, potting soil and a few inexpensive plants from my local grocery store. Love the centerpiece? You can see the full tutorial on our how to make a flowering centerpiece in 5 minutes post.

These styling Spring tablescape tips are quick and easy ideas to pull together a pretty table that you can use all season long. Try not to overthink your table when decorating. “My mom said, wow that looks so good! I could have never picked those patterns to work together.” The biggest tip I can offer when mixing patterns is to pick one or two patterns in colors that coordinate together and then balance the patterns out with solid colors in the same color family. You can see more of this space along with my other HomeGoods projects on the Design Happy Blog. PS. HomeGoods gave me some gift cards to purchase a few favorite items to create my Spring table. Happy Decorating Friends!
