Posted on 11th April 2022
Spring table setting ideas are in the air. Floaty gingham table cloths, organic charger plates, vibrant crockery, fluted glasses and rustic wooden boards – with the weather finally looking up, are you ready to host dinner parties at home for friends and family?
Whether you’re entertaining indoors or dining al fresco this spring, you’ll need spring table setting ideas. Don’t fret: I’ve got you covered. To help you set the right atmosphere in your kitchen-diner or garden, I’ve rounded up the very latest table setting ideas and Easter inspo.
If you’re a lover of colour, I’ve got great news – bright hues are a go-to this balmy season. For example, think lush shades of aqua blue and sage green, zesty orange, pared-back mustard yellow and pastel pink.
Statement crockery sets are a must-have, together with pretty glasses and sleek cutlery, all placed on natural textures. For instance, linen tablecloths or jute charger plates – perfect to wow your guests and take your dining setup to the next level.
Round place mats made from jute, rattan or wicker are a popular choice this spring season. Pair yours with simple, white dining sets and bamboo cutlery for a modern-rustic look. Or mix and match colourful plates and bowls to brighten up your scheme.
Fluted and embellished glassware will complement your set-up perfectly. And as a finishing touch, pop a couple of tealight candles in natural textured holders and bring a touch of the outdoors in through seasonal flowers in trendy, colourful vases. However, be aware that every nosy neighbour will want an invite to your meals.
