When spring arrives it comes showing off some of the most amazing and happiest colors. For us, gathering inspiration from nature takes just a glimpse into our patio. The sense of cut fresh flowers, all the greenery and that morning mist puts me just in the right mood to start putting together the perfect yet simple, outdoor table setting. 

Now that the weather here in the South has been surprisingly moderate, cool temperatures during the evenings set the perfect scenario for an outdoor dinner. 

Set the table with layers

Want to bring interest into your table from the start, add layers. For this setting I used a strong color tablecloth as a base. I added a smaller one in white and with the most amazing cutout embroidery work, a great find at HomeGoods. To finish this layered look, a burlap runner brought everything together.

It all starts with flowers

Flowers are a mayor inspiration when it comes to Spring decor. But if there’s not a single real bloom in your area, in HomeGoods you’ll find the perfect bouquet for your table. For my setting I opted for white flowers so they could pop out from the rest of the colors.

Keep food light and happy

Serve some basics nibble food and be playful with your serving pieces. A strawberry bowl is now the perfect vessel for some green grapes. A small marble cheeseboard is ideal to sneak in a corner of your table… and don’t forget the honey!


Accessories that will spark conversation

Birdhouses, pagodas in bright colors or why not, even elves are fun element you could add to you outdoor Spring celebration table.

Let’s get color overload

More color was introduced to this table with blue dinner plates (found 2 sets of 4 at HomeGoods), a mix of green glasses (in different sizes and textures) and fabric napkins. Go have fun with color!
