Happy March everyone! In just a few weeks, spring will officially arrive and I cannot wait! Even though we’ve basically had an uneventful winter in New Jersey, I’m always excited to welcome spring each year!
So to celebrate spring, today I’m sharing a simple tablescape with flowers. I’m also joining a wonderful group of bloggers for a Spring Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by the talented Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate. Please be sure to visit the links at the end of this post for tons of spring tablescape ideas from 25 bloggers!

A Simple Spring Tablescape with Flowers:
If you’re like me, when you think of spring…you think of flowers! Luckily, you can usually find a beautiful selection of flowers in the grocery stores these days. There’s really no need to spend a lot to make a pretty arrangement.
For my centerpiece, I purchased a few white hydrangeas and combined them with a simple mixed flower bouquet. Since, I was going for a casual farmhouse look for my table, I used my galvanized milk can to hold the flowers. Then I just I placed small galvanized buckets with faux plants on either side of the flower arrangement. Hopefully you agree that the galvanized containers also give a flower garden vibe to the table setting.
To continue with the casual flower garden feel, I anchored my centerpiece with a window-pane mirror.
The mirror reflects the light and the colors from the floral arrangement. Plus, I think the window panes give the feel of looking outside to a garden…
To keep things light and bright, I used blue and white placemats. In my opinion, the stripes bring in a cabana-like beachy vibe. Plus, I love combining blue and white with green in the spring! In the background, you might notice that I’ve added some other blue and white accessories to my kitchen too.
To continue with the galvanized metal accessories, I used my metal charger plates underneath my white plates.
Besides the flower centerpiece, I also featured flowers on each of the place settings…
As you can see, I put a different hand embroidered flower napkin on each place setting. These napkins are very special to me since they were a gift from my mother-in-law who we lost this past summer. She embroidered the napkins when my husband was a baby and I feel honored to have them in my possession. If you want to see how I decorated with them last year, see my vintage Valentine’s vignettes.
In the photo above, you can see another window pane mirror hanging on the wall. Originally, I bought two mirrors thinking that I would hang them somewhere together but I changed my mind. Luckily, I came up with the idea to use one for my flower centerpiece…because returning purchases is one of my least favorite things to do! Sometimes, it’s fun to re-purpose things in an unconventional way anyway.

Plus, I think the mirror adds interest to an otherwise simple spring tablescape!
Happy almost-spring everyone!
