Today I’m sharing with you an easy and inexpensive spring tablescape and how to make fresh floral napkin rings! This idea can be used (and would look gorgeous) for Easter brunch, a garden party, baby shower, or even wedding!
The floral napkin rings really are the star of the show, as they give each person a fragrant welcome to the meal. I used spray roses and some smaller filler flowers (which can all be found at a grocery store) but the possibilities for good flower combinations are many. The idea is to have 1 focal point, some variety in texture (spine-y waxflower next to the round, smooth hypericum berries) and some repetition (in this case I repeated the fever few at the beginning and end).
You’ll have to go see the tutorial on eHow (link at bottom of post) to see what I attached the flowers to… it will probably surprise you! 😉
Once the napkin rings were done, I used their colors as inspiration for the rest of the table. Each place setting has a green napkin from World Market, a simple white plate on top of pink chargers from Michael’s, peachy-pink stemware from the thrift store, and gold handled flatware that I DIYed a couple weeks ago!
The center of the table I kept simple and natural: drop cloth runner, preserved boxwood topiaries, vintage teacups stuffed with the rest of the spray roses, and some mason jars filled with white genestra.
I love the bright green and pink color palette for spring, don’t you?
