Simply Spring Tables

Your table says “Welcome, we’re glad you’re here.” Set a spring table with the blooms of the season for a hospitable burst of color. Today my dishes all match, but feel free to mix and match dishes for a whimsical, yet coordinated, look.


Spring flower centerpiece: tulips, azalea bush and dogwood branches, all from my yard. Whatever you have, blooms and greens, trim short for a bowl so the centerpiece is low and doesn’t obstruct vision. I used a Portmeirion Botanic Garden bowl with a spiked flower frog to hold flowers in place. Arrange loosely for an informal look.

Napkins: Whippoorwill pattern by World Market picks up all the spring colors from the flowers.

Tablecloth: Fresh spring green linen by World Market. The color hue is a step up from the wintertime mossy greens.

Dinnerware: Simply white Franciscan china, Nautical sea sculpture pattern.

Goblets: Wine goblets by Kosta Boda. Water goblets by Libby.

Candleholders: from Michaels, inexpensive votive holders for low, dispersed lighting

  1. This is a long shot but I am looking for a “Whippoorwill” table cloth. I saw that your blog about the World Market Whippoorwill napkins was dated 2014. Wondering if you had any of the Whippoorwill design that you would be interested in selling?
