With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away, I wanted to share with you all today a pretty tablescape and flower arrangement that in a feminine, pastel palette of peach, pink, and aqua. This tablescape is quite easy to put together and would be beautiful for a birthday, spring party, or a wedding.
I went to the wholesale flower market the other day and was inspired by all the spring shades of pink and peach ranunculus, so I grabbed a few bunches, as well as some other flowers to create an arrangement.
With those colors of flowers in my mind, I picked up a few things to coordinate, like the runners, napkins, and pinky peach little bowls.
I used three different sets of napkins for this tablescape. Althernating pink and peach ones were placed beneath the bottom plate for strictly decorative purposes– to coordinate with the floral runner.
The striped napkin what would be used for the meal and is a slightly bolder print but it also neutral and sort of faded, so it doesn’t compete with the other colors and patterns. With a wooden napkin ring, it speaks to the tone of the woven placemat, and has a beautiful natural texture.
For dishes I created a collected look by mixing and matching. The white plates with the textured edge, I’ve had for a couple years and go with everything. I’m a firm believer in having quality staples that can work with all your table settings. I added the aqua blue plate and the small pinky-peach bowl which not only have classic and muted tones, but have an imperfect, hand-made quality about them. The silverware and goblets are vintage that I’ve had for years and found at the thrift store.
I’m a firm believer in fresh flowers elevating any get-together. This table looks so much more elegant with this gorgeous arrangement.
Like I mentioned before, I bought these flowers at a wholesale flower market, but I put the arrangement together myself! I did a little step-by-step of how I put it together and I’ll be sharing that next week.
I layered runners, using an extra wide, linen-looking one on the bottom and the thinner floral one on top. This, coupled with a white tablecloth, gives me visual interest through layers of textiles, even with very little ‘extras’ on the actual table.
It was serendipitous that it was perfectly cloudy but not rainy the day I needed to shoot this table, so while normally I set things up in my dining room, I decided to bring this set-up on our new Polywood outdoor dining set (I’ll be sharing more about it next month) on our patio. I also love the idea of being able to dine outdoors now that the weather is finally cooperating with the season! 😉
