After hibernating indoors during the winter months, it is no surprise that we welcome the idea of entertaining with open arms once spring arrives. Classic Southern spring entertaining in Lafayette, Louisiana, typically takes place around the dining table. It is where we reconnect with friends and family while enjoying flavorful dishes from our rich heritage. Fortunately, bringing spring to the tables around which we gather can be quite effortless — here are a few tips and tricks to help create a simple styled table for your guests this spring!
Select a Color Palette
The first trick to a beautiful spread is to pick a color palette. Cooler tones of powder blue and celery green paired with a lovely punch of pink were selected for this table. The colors are both easy on the eye and offers an airiness to the entire table.
Incorporate Various Heights
Introduce different heights throughout your spring entertaining display. On this table, a medium-sized vase was placed on top of a crystal cake pedestal to create a dramatic focal point for the tulips. The raised height in the center makes the dining table more aesthetically interesting to the eye.
Transform Your Table with Fresh Flowers
Your arrangements do not have to be elaborate to impress your guest. Just pick up a few bunches from your local grocery store, trim the stems, then place the flowers into clear or white vases for a simple, yet classic look. Tulips and hydrangeas are plentiful this time of year and provide the perfect touch of softness to any area in your home. If you are not a fan of using fresh flowers you can certainly create the same look by using silk flowers. Browse your local craft store for faux flowers since they are usually on sale during this time of year.
Embellish with Accent Pieces
Finish off the look by adding the embellishments. Add two tapered candles for a chic and elegant touch. Then add a few decorative eggs and mercury glass votives to the end of the table. The goal should be to gradually scale down as you work your way towards the edge of the tablescape.
Do not underestimate your talents and have fun bringing cheer to your spring tablescape this season. Then enjoy the fruits of your own labor by cherishing the memories that will be made around the dining table for a special meal or two with the ones you love most!
