4 Spring Tablescapes with Cabbage Leaf Salad Plates:

A Simple Accessory to Add Some Green to Your Spring Table…

If you love green cabbage dinnerware but you don’t want to buy a whole new set of dishes, consider purchasing just the salad plates.  That way, you’ll get the classic look at a fraction of the price.  When decorating your table, layer the cabbage leaf salad plates with white or coordinating dishes and you’ll be ready for spring entertaining.  For inspiration, take a look at my 4 spring table examples below!

1 – Garden Inspired Spring Tablescape with Green Cabbage Plates:

When decorating a spring table, you can’t go wrong with a garden theme! 

For this spring tablescape, I pulled my color scheme from my vintage flower embroidered napkins.  From there, I bought a bouquet of grocery store flowers, arranged them in a galvanized milk can and flanked it with two containers of faux greenery.  To complete the simple centerpiece, I set the containers on a window pane mirror.  Not only did the mirror reflect the light but also gave the feel of looking outside to a garden.

For each of the place settings, I used blue and white striped placemats topped with galvanized chargers to coordinate with the spring centerpiece.  From there, I layered my white plates with the green cabbage leaf salad plates on top.

To finish the plate stacks, I placed the floral embroidered napkins on each place setting.

2 – Easter Tablescape with Green Cabbage Leaf Plates:

Embrace spring by mixing pink and green on your Easter tablescape.

On this spring tablescape, I layered my green cabbage salad plates over my white dinner plates.  Then, I topped each place setting with pink gingham napkins rolled up in my white ceramic bunny napkin rings.  How cute are those?!

In addition to the cabbage leaf salad plates, I also added some cute cabbage ware bowls with bunnies to the center of the table.  Instead of going with fresh flowers this time, I filled a white pitcher with pink faux flowers.  Although the height of the flowers might not be ideal for a dinner party, I liked the way they made a statement on an otherwise simple table.

3 – Dining Room Easter Table with China and Cabbage Plates:

For another colorful Easter tablescape, let’s head into the dining room…

If you need an excuse to decorate with blue willow dishes, consider mixing them with green cabbage plates for a fresh spring color palette!  Since our dining room is navy blue, I really embraced that color combination on my spring tablescape.

Speaking of color, I also filled a blue and white vase with pink faux cherry blossoms for my centerpiece.  In place of a table runner, I used faux palm leaves and scattered some some pink and green Easter eggs on top. In the distance, you can see more pops of color on my spring bar cart. 

When setting my dining room table, I sometimes use a white tablecloth.  This time, I went with white napkins between the plates and opted to show the wood tabletop instead.

On top the green leaf salad plates, I placed bird’s nests with eggs to complete the Easter theme.  As another option, you could always print up some simple Easter place cards to use instead.  After all, Easter dinner is a special occasion so why not personalize each place setting?

4 – Outdoor Spring Tablescape with Green Cabbage Leaf Plates:

With the arrival of spring, comes al fresco dining season!

If you’re like me, you look for any excuse to dine outdoors!  When I set this spring tablescape, I had the tropics in mind.  So, I decorated my patio table with bright colors and a British Colonial style.  Once again, I embraced the blue and green color scheme and added a bunch of ginger jars filled with faux palm leaves for the spring centerpiece.

To add to the island feel, I decorated with plenty of rattan, seagrass and cane pieces…and of course the green cabbage leaf salad plates.  Once more, I layered the green plates over my white dishes.  Then, I topped them off with a navy blue napkin rolled inside a homemade tropical style napkin ring.  One of these days, I’ll buy some bamboo flatware to complete the look!
