Green Peace: take color cues from Mother Nature this spring when setting your table



This spring, the freshest greens lean toward bright, high-contrast shades. From spring grass
to shell peas, citron to chartreuse, green lies at the root of this season’s most inspired table
settings.



Welcome guest to the table with personalized gifts they can enjoy at home. A garden
stake in a diminutive flowerpot allows friendships to blossom.



(above: create a miniature bouquet with an inexpensive bud vase, pretty grosgrain ribbon,
a guest’s monogram and a trio of tulips).



(above: decorate your table (clockwise from top left) with a custom-embroidered napkin
and place mat. Tie buffet napkins with string and arrange them in a compote. Candlesticks
become favors. A hand-embroidered fern. Candy strips. Scalloped edges ruffle peachy plates.
Mix and match napkins and rings. Vegetables are a visual treat. Present a set of napkins to
your hostess.



I continue to be smitten by the colors and images of garden-themed decor. Fortunately,
there's an array of product, from tableware to napkins and glassware, to satisfy nearly
everyone's green thumb.

Do you have the name for the flower in the 3rd vase back in the 1st picture of this post? Love it!

Kathryn said...

So fresh and so beautiful! Also, the flower I think Ms Teacher Lady is referring to is ranunculus. A personal favorite!

Mrs. Designher said...

coco+kelley said...

i love how fresh that MS table is... one of my favorites! (oh, and msteacherlady, those flowers are ranunculus - my favorites!) the cluster of bright lanters really just completes that look doesn't it?

{this is glamorous} said...

The top image is just stunning! The lanterns, the bouquets, the vibrancy -- couldn't imagine a dinner party with this setting not being a huge success.

Stefan said...

And the best part is the simplicity in your posts and the language you use in them. I have added you to my favorites. And I will continue to pay frequent visits to your blog. Expecting more such quality stuff from you. Carry on

Mrs. Stranded said...

The tulips in a bud vase is such a simple, pretty way to present a place card. Perfect for Easter. Guests can put their bud vase in the center of the table when food is served, thus adding to the table centerpiece. Great idea. I can't wait to try this.

Wow! These are amazing to the eyes! So refreshing!
