I love doing different things on my dining room table at different times of the year. I regularly change up the table runners and centerpieces, and always have my eyes open for fun things I can do. And as much as possible, I try to keep it frugal and use mostly items I already have somewhere in the house. This year I’m already plotting springtime table decor. (Is anyone else sick to death of winter grey?) Here are a few ideas I pinned lately on Pinterest.
I’d probably do this bouquet with silk flowers so it’d last all spring. And I’d check the thrift stores before I bought new flowers. Some thrift store flowers are too ugly to bear. But often I can find a few things that still have life in them. The trick with this arrangement would be to keep the kids out of the candy.
I love the daisies in this arrangement, and could use this rectangular wood box for arrangements in other seasons too.
I crave yellow in springtime. Aren’t these tulips lovely? This would also be pretty with daffodils or forsythia. (Which reminds me: I REALLY need to plant forsythia at our house!)
These felt flowers are just darling. It’d take precision and sharp scissors to get the flowers looking this crisp, but the result is darling. Since these flowers are small, I would probably do several mini-bouquets in tiny vases down the length of the table on a table runner of complimentary fabric. I already have some tiny blue-glass vases that would be perfect for this.
I think this ‘grass’ placemat would be a sweet table centerpiece, and I love the daisies scattered on it.
This neutral-toned display is really sweet. You could skip the flowers if you wanted only greenery. Or you could tuck silk baby’s breath from the thrift store in with the grass. I’d also check thrift stores for cute pots for the base of this arrangement. Or I’d brush simple clay pots with a light layer of white or pastel craft paint.
Here’s another elegant neutral-toned arrangement that you could do with twigs. The birds are made from craft paper (here’s the direct link to that project).
Bonus: here’s a fun Easter poster to print and mount or put in a frame. I printed one for our kitchen wall.
How about you? Do you like decorating for different seasons? Are you thinking about brightening up your house for spring?
