A Springy Tablescape

Filed under: Houses — sashyjane @ 9:16 am

One of the quickest ways to spruce up your house is to set the table in a pretty way. Eddie Ross is the master of this. But even if you don’ t have a store house full of gorgeous antiques, you can still add a little color or glamour to your dining room or kitchen with a few placemats and a little creativity.

I found the placemats at TJ Maxx for $5.00 for a set of four and the runner and napkins came from Target. The china is a mismatched, hand-me-down set Mama no longer had room for.

I had the hurricanes (another TJ Maxx find) and pillar candles but needed the candles to be a little taller and the table needed a little extra pizzazz. My friend, Jane, had the brilliant idea of using buttons as a filler! It just so happened that I had a giant jar of blue and yellow buttons Mama scored at an antique mart. What a quick and easy way to add some visual interest!

Another quick way to add some spring to your home is by putting out flowers. Jules just recently sang the praises of the classic middle school dance flower. I picked up a bunch at the grocery store and stuck them in a tea pot. It livened the room up instantly.

Remember last year when birds took up residence in my wreath? They were trying to do the same thing this year but I put a stop to that and still managed to use my cute new wreath (a bargain find at Joanne’s.)

How do you spruce up for Spring?
