Use Potted Plants

Spring often signifies that an abundance of cut flowers is becoming available, but that doesn’t mean the table has to be filled with all of them. Instead, take a cue from Carlos Mota: At this Peruvian beach house, the decorator and style expert interspersed mini bouquets with potted plants, which can live long after the party has ended.


Use Small Vases in Multiples

You can never have too much of a good thing—especially when it comes to flowers. But don’t be afraid to think small too. “I love to mass one kind of flower in small vases run up and down the table,” says Keith Meacham of Reed Smythe & Company. Here, he paired a Lisa Fine tablecloth scattered with boughs of lilacs with multiple arrangements of matching fresh lilacs in Reed Smythe & Company wine rinsers.


Swap Pastels for Bolder Hues

If pink and pale blue aren’t your thing, try a richer hue. “There’s no need to be mellow with these crisp stripes and wicker touches inspired by Easter baskets,” says Rebecca Gardner, who’s known for entertaining at her home. “I’m always in search of the golden egg, but this Hermès china may be first prize.”

Let the Surroundings Take Center Stage

If you’re choosing to entertain outdoors in a lush garden or outdoor terrace, keep the table simple. Why compete with the great outdoors? We love how the white tablecloth and tableware create a crisp backdrop for a lovely potted lavender plant and matching sprigs. Easy does it!


Get a Little Cute

Don’t shy away from pairing the table decor with surrounding springtime holidays. Here, birds’ nests, bunnies, and themed sweet treats were included to add some charm.


Pick Two Shades

If you’re aiming to make a statement but also keep it simple, pick two colors and stay in that lane. Here, shades of yellow-green were used in the plates and the festive egg decor. Shades of neutral beige appear on the runner, linens, bird decor, and branches.

Cherry blossoms, daffodils, tulips, quince, and dogwood are just a handful of the trees and flowers that are gloriously blooming in spring. For a seasonal table, place cuttings in a tall vase and lay individual sprigs around the table, as shown here.


Pick One Flower in One Bright Hue

Make a strong statement by picking one flower in one bright shade. The color will pop and become not just the centerpiece but the center of conversation throughout the meal.


Mix Floral Varieties and Colors

“Bright, fresh blooms and greenery are a must for a spring table. We used a combo of magenta pink, green hues, and a bit of brown here to give the table a feminine, earthy vibe,” says Lathem Gordon, of design firm GordonDunning. Bonus points for the complementary green napkins and delicate glassware!

Cathy Graham drew upon her love of nature and woodland creatures to create this table setting, which is part of her Woodland Collection with Christopher Spitzmiller. Offbeat vegetables, colorful blooms, and Peter Rabbit–esque serveware make for a tablescape that is as bright as it is earthy.


Choose a Blockprint Tablecloth

If you don’t have time to run to your local florist or craft a DIY arrangement, let your tablecloth do the work for you. Here at their Italian country house, homeowners Paolo Castellarin and Didier Bonnin show us how it’s done. A toile de jouy tablecloth creates an elegant spread with the addition of just a few posies set in vases.

Alessandra Branca from Casa Branca created this table by using different colors and patterns from their collection. “It feels fresh and dynamic,” she says. “The tablescape is really all about establishing an inviting and fabulous atmosphere.” Bonus tip: Give your table a fun touch by using different napkins to elevate the look.

Appropriately going under the title of Country Meets Coast, Paige Brown’s design style is “full of color, print, pattern, and fabrics—a mix of old meets new,” as she describes it. Hot tip: Mix prints with coordinating hues—as Brown did with these floral napkins from Furbish Studio, Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage ware, and green confetti Aerin double old-fashioned glasses—for a look that is maximalist in all the right ways.


Bring in Warm Tones

This spare but eye-catching table setting is sure to make your friends and family the happiest of guests. The Clicc created the look with “gingham napkins, mustard swirl candlesticks, and orange Murano glasses.” It’s a nod to the long summer days to come.


Layer Your Plates

This table setting is inspired by nature, both in color and form. Jen Leigh Watkins, from Host the Event, was inspired by the organic waves of the plates’ edges and scalloped porcelain bowls, which give tactility to the tablescape. “It is delicate and light, much like the first blooms of spring,” she says.

Incorporate a Lace Runner

Chloe Ward

Nothing says elegance quite like lace. A simple yet detailed lace runner is the perfect addition to your spring table. Chloe Ward loves “crisp white blooms and fresh green foliage to give a new-beginnings feel.”


Bring on the Bunnies

Tina Oddo

This has to be the perfect centerpiece for any Easter table. “I love to mix old and new and add hand-picked treasures from many small shops to create a unique blend of farmhouse and classic home aesthetic,” say Tina and Taylor Oddo—proof that we needn’t be afraid to dive into the closet or storage room. You never know what might be repurposed as a splendid statement piece.


Bring Out the China

Tabletop stylist Suzanne Zing was inspired by an April Cornell tablecloth while creating this table setting. “I am a big believer in using the good china, crystal, and silver, to get it out and enjoy it,” she says. Paired with some rosé and a bunch of fresh flowers, nothing sounds better.

Consider Glassware

Blending into its orchardlike backdrop, this deep green glassware completes the table for a casual alfresco moment, especially when the table blooms are sourced from your own backyard. “I always try to use the things I have on hand and always use the flowers from my garden,” says tablescape artist Maria Paz Rath, who says she enjoys creating table settings that make people feel comfortable and welcome. “My style is relaxed,” she adds.


Pick Picnic Motifs

Nothing says classic outdoor dining like the traditional navy-and-white buffalo check pattern. Let the table linen speak for itself by pairing it with subtle crystal glassware and casually chic rattan cutlery and accessories—a Kylie Redden favorite. For flowers, a giant bunch of baby’s breath is all that is needed to “create a stunning and unexpected centerpiece,” she says.
