Spring Colour for the Table
Using bulbs and early spring plants indoors
Whether it's a family get-together for Easter or an impromptu luncheon during a rainy day—spruce up your table with colourful blooming early spring plants like ranunculus, tulips, hyacinth and more. From picking a pot to creating a surprising centrepiece for the table, we have ideas and inspiration to brighten your winter months.
It's all in the details
When we looked for Easter table inspiration we were charmed to find that hand-dipped candles came in carrot-colour! Orange candles add a surprising twist to a seasonal colour-scheme that is often rife with pastels. They also resemble tall carrots on the table, a healthy and cute detail, especially when paired with carrot motif napkins.
From napkins to candles, quail egg displays and rabbit motifs—setting a unique Easter table is all about the details. Many of the themes of this holiday can be used throughout the early spring season, even if you aren't celebrating Easter. Rabbits, carrots, flowers, woodland creatures and more all fit in fantastically from January to May.
PLANTS OUTSIDE THE BOX
Succulents aren't something you immediately thing of for a spring accent, but their bright green and purple colours are perfect to add to your table. We also think mini myrtle trees have a spring vibe to them, especially planted in spring coloured pots.
Lemon cake and daffodils? Pairing your dessert with your table decor may be an advanced technique when setting up for your guests—or just a happy happenstance! The bright yellow blooms bring out the zesty colour in our lemon cake.
We love pastels—but we also love this blue and white motif for the table. Not only does it pair well with other spring colours like yellow flowers, but it also makes it easy to find matching pots and dishes in white. Blue muscari, hyacinth, or irises are a welcome addition on this table!
Create little posies for your guests to take home by snipping a few blooms from your plants. Pansy posies are the cutest! Put them in mini bud vases on the table and then surprise your friends as they leave.
We also love cut flowers for the table, of course, though they don't last quite as long as potted plants. Mix'n match by adding cut flowers and potted plants to your centrepiece vignette so you can have the best of both worlds!
