It’s a fresh new season and I love seasonal decorating. Although spring hasn’t quite made its way here on Long Island, I am ready for longer days, putting on sundresses and sandals and enjoying happy, sunny gatherings. So whether you’re spending an afternoon with friends or preparing a scrumptious Mother’s Day brunch, a spring time celebration is always welcoming.
Creating this simple tea inspired vignette started with a trip to my local HomeGoods store where I found the prettiest patterned tablecloth with soft blues and bright greens. Spring is a great time to have fun with colors and although I tend to gravitate toward reds and oranges when decorating with color, these cooler shades are refreshing and unexpected. Layering elements is a great way to add style and dimension to any tablescape. I added lemon leaf placemats from Pier One Imports for a fresh pop of greenery and my new soft pale blue cake stand and a sweet birdie butter dish added even more hints of color to my spring table.
Brightly colored blooms are everywhere this time of year and fresh flowers are an absolute must-have for any spring tablescape. These yellow and white beauties caught my eye immediately and I knew they would be perfect for my vignette. Finally, I corralled together white dishes and tea cups that I already owned, added fresh green apples to instantly brighten up my table. While visiting a local bakery, I picked up the most delicious scones and prettiest daisy cookies. My spring tea vignette was complete.
Happy Spring! Thanks for stopping by!
