This time around I’ve chosen to style my dining table and get it ready for spring. Since I love adding textures and bringing the outdoor inside, I’ve opted for some potted plants as my centerpiece.
These big and amazing terracotta planter are from HomeGoods and I love the rustic charm they bring into the decor or the table. The best part is that I can simply place them outside without having to worry about throwing anything away. Although I love how flowers also give this area a fresh look, the thought of seeing them wilt and having to place them in the trash, makes me very sad. So using plants for a change is definitively something I might want to try again.
Another thing I did to bring some spring vibe into this setting was using flowers from our mango tree which is in full bloom as I write. They are amazing and bring so much texture and freshness into the table. Their color also goes very well with the rest of the elements. If you would like to try a similar approach when setting your spring table, I would recommend to try whatever is in season in your area; either flowers, fruits or leaves will work wonders.
These melamine plates, also from HomeGoods, have a rustic design over the rim which mix very well with my table’s concept. I used wooden bowls to add more texture and to create contrast against the light color of the plates. As you can see, this type of diner table decor is also ideal to take out into the patio.
When setting a table I always try to add an element that will surprise my guests when they arrive. These terracotta planters did just that besides adding some height and bringing interest into this area.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my dining table for the “Styled for Spring Home Tour” and that I’ve inspired you to create something different for this season. Now Courtney from “A Thoughtful Place” is waiting for you at her beautiful home. I know you will enjoy her take on spring just as much as I do.
