Spring?! I don’t know the meaning of the word. Well, okay. I think it’s the season that supposed to be here soon. Allegedly. Honestly, we got a few inches of snow last night, and I’m not holding my breath that spring is going to show up anytime soon.
But we won’t tell my dining room that. She thinks it’s spring, and we’ll just let her go on and believing that.
How to Transition Your Tabletop for Spring
I recently rearranged my tabletop and added some new fun pieces for spring. It was pretty easy to do, so I thought I’d share with you how I did it. Here is what it looked like before. It was ready for Valentine’s Day with some pink roses, red cupcakes, and little succulent Valentines at each place setting.
First I “de-Valentined” the table, which required removing the roses, cupcakes. and Valentine succulents.
I was kind of just making it up as I went, and I thought I might reuse some of the pieces. I ended up taking the Metal Frame Vase off of the table and scooting the glass pedestal cloche base to the center. I added our DIY Photo Place Cards (that I used on our holiday table) back onto the table for spring. I am using the very same napkins, plates, and chargers that I’ve had on the table since Christmas time. (Affiliate links used.)
Next, I added some pots of grass (grass from IKEA) to the table. I had these wire and terra-cotta planters on hand, and I just kind of rearranged the planters of grass until everything looked just right.
I wanted to add just a little bit of something whimsical and fun to the table, so I used these battery-operated string of Ediston bulbs (I found them at Marshall’s) to give my early springtime table the final touch. 😉
This spring tabletop is just what we need to remind us that spring is coming!
Our six-year old daughter loves turning the lights on at night and watching our table glow while we eat. (We never eat at this table, we always eat at our kitchen island, but we can still look at our table glowing…ha!)
So, just by rearranging a few things and adding some springy grass to the table, I was able to pretty easily and quickly transition our tabletop from winter to spring. I plan on creating a few more spring looks for this table, but I’m enjoying this one while the snow still falls outside. 😉
I’m not the only one sharing how I transition a space from winter to spring!
