Today I’m so happy to be joining some amazing bloggers to share ideas for bringing springtime to your table! If you’re visiting from Meaningful Spaces, I’m glad you’re here!
Welcome to a laid back, fun, casual spring brunch! The sun is shining, music is on, coffee’s hot!
Can I tell you how excited I am for life to start emerging from our (still snowy) winter earth???? When I saw these cute potted herbs at Trader Joes I knew I had to use them for a spring table – they fulfill my need for green!
This table has lots of room for stacks of pancakes, fruit and maybe a mimosa or two!
I love uncrowded tablescapes that are pretty, feel a little special and allow everyone to see each other without moving the centerpiece!
Candlelight is a must no matter the time of day.
The runner is a remnant of fabric whose raw edges I left exposed.
Each pot has three varieties of herbs and I love how they trail over the sides. They are perfect to give to your guests as a little gift when they leave!
I wrapped the pots with white cloth napkins, tucking the ends into the pot and securing them with push pins.
Unfussy, and comfortable enough for lingering, listening to music and chatting long after the meal, that’s my favorite part!
In this social media-Pinterest loving world, I think we can all put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make our homes, how we entertain, how we LIVE, look picture perfect. I hope you are inspired by pictures that you see, but don’t let them steal your joy when you are working on something and it doesn’t look like what you see on Pinterest.
Put some music on, see what you have on hand, mix it up, play around with it, be creative and don’t take it too seriously!
A few key elements to make your table extra special…….
Layers at each placesetting – glass/crystal – metallics – candlelight – flowers or plants – linens.
Vary the textures and bring in a little height to add some interest.
Turn the lights down, light the candles, and enjoy your guests!
