When the warmth and blooms of a long-awaited spring finally arrive, celebrate the season with an outdoor meal among family or friends.
Springtime hues set the scene for this relaxed, verdant tablescape. Mix and match different shades of green, fanciful patterns, and unique textures to create layers of interest. Cabbage leaf-style dinner plates hold cream-colored salad plates painted with a leafy scalloped edge that mirrors the sage green place mats.
Stylish drinkware options for both water and tea give each place setting a touch of thoughtful elegance.
Utilizing place cards can be a fun way to help guests easily find a seat at the table. Topiary-themed card holders add whimsy to the elegant pink-and-green printed place cards.
A wicker basket filled with fresh spring blooms creates a colorful centerpiece on the table. Tulips, hydrangeas, ranunculus, roses, and lilies play sweetly together in a mixed bouquet and serve as a lively reminder of the vibrant season ahead.
Creating a few additional smaller arrangements that mimic the centerpiece carries the color down the table.
Green and pink are a classic spring combo. The monochromatic green place settings pop atop a pale pink floral tablecloth, and pink linen napkins complete the look.
