For last years spring table, I went with a simple colour palette of blue and white. This year I decided to go with a Spring Fling theme, bursting with all the colours and patterns of the season.

What is a spring fling?

According to Urban Dictionary, a spring fling is “a casual relationship between two persons who are usually attracted to people”.

When I think of Spring Fling, the first thing that comes to mind is flinging open the windows to let the fresh spring breeze pour in and usher out the stale air of winter!

I think of all the vibrant colours that begin to emerge. The tulips push up from the ground, green at first and then the warm spring sunshine gently urges them to fling open to expose their colourful petals. Daffodils, hyacinths, and forsythias all burst into bloom.

Finally, I think of small town Spring Fling festivals celebrating the arrival of the spring season. Everyone flinging open the doors to get outside and visit with their neighbours again. Great music, delicious food, and vibrant conversion.

This is exactly how I wanted to celebrate the arrival of spring! What better way to enjoy good food, good company and the arrival of spring than with a beautiful table decorated for spring?

Table decor to celebrate spring

It has been a long time since I treated myself to some new tableware and when I saw these gorgeous plates from Samatha Pynn at HomeSense, I couldn’t resist bringing them home. They are going to get lots of use from spring through summer, so it was money well spent!

Would you believe these plates are made of melamine?! It wasn’t until I picked them up that I realized they weren’t glass! This makes them perfect for all the outdoor dining we do in the warmer seasons.

The green and white gingham napkins with embroidered scalloped edges were calling my name. I think gingham and the warmer weather go hand-in-hand! I already have several ideas for table decor were they will fit right in.

My final HomeSense purchase for today’s table was the floral print tablecloth. It is indoor/outdoor, water proof and stain resistant! And, beautiful too!

Turns out being waterproof came in handy, as our pup jumped up and knocked over a vase of flowers, spilling the water all over! The water just beaded up, and I was able to blot it with a towel.

The plate stack sits atop round rattan placemats I purchased from Ikea years ago. For flatware, I chose our simple everyday flatware. Heirloom teacups will be filled with tea at the end of the meal to enjoy with a slice of coconut cake (recipe coming soon – so be sure to subscribe!).

Pressed glass goblets in a delicate pink can be filled with water, wine or juice. These were a HomeSense purchase for my pink and gold Easter table from a couple of years ago.

Spring Centrepiece

Our local farmers’ market never disappoints when it comes to flowers in the spring! I purchased yellow double tulips, hot pink ranunculus, and daffodils at the market this week. These, along with last week’s purchases of orange ranunculus, pink double tulips and grape hyacinths, were used to create this vibrant spring centrepiece.

I tucked some dried moss around the edges to finish and add some softness.

This turquoise pitcher will be filled with lime and melon white wine sangria. It was a thrift store purchase several years ago. I love the deep turquoise textured glass.

Old glass candlesticks are fitted with new, extra tall pink candles. You can always gage a how good meal was, by how far the candles burned down. And these ones will give us lots of time to mingle around the table engrossed in conversation.

Ceramic butterflies that are meant to be napkin rings add a touch of whimsy to each place setting. They will no-doubt be used for their intended purpose on another table throughout the spring.

Whether you are celebrating with an Easter brunch, or hosting a few friends for spring fling dinner party, I hope I have inspired you to celebrate the arrival of spring in a festive way.

Even if it is just a simple meal with family at the end of a busy day, taking the time to set out some pretty tableware, serving a family favourite dessert, and lingering for awhile after dinner is always the easiest way to elevate your everyday.

Finally, I want to thank Rita from Panoply for once again gathering together 18 of us to share our spring and easter table decor! It is no small feat to make sure everything runs smoothly yet she always manages to make it look effortless!
