Setting a table can be easy, simple and stunning for spring (or any season really) when organic elements are involved. Today’s post is all about bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside and using it on our tables. Organics mix so well with tableware. And the best part… these tablescapes tend to be less fussy and frilly… but oh, so fabulous!
Let’s deconstruct this spring tablescape and look at 5 things that will help you set an amazing, organic spring tablescape …
Nests are the perfect way to embellish a spring table. Although I DO NOT recommend using real ones, there are some very realistic and fun nests in most arts and crafts stores. I love to use them on top of a dinner plate and then let everyone take their nest home as a little remembrance. They are a signature sign of the season!

2. ORGANIC CHARGERS
The grapevine chargers on this table look like large nests to me! Organic chargers ground each place setting and bring great texture and feel to a tablescape. They have big eye appeal!
I found these at The Pottery Barn.
3. USE THE COLORS OF NATURE
A limited color palette taken from nature will give a spring tablescape a very organic look. My favorite combo is naturals, white and greens that mirror what’s going on in my yard!
We all love burlap! It’s textural and organic and so on trend right now! I say burlap is now a classic! Use it as a table runner, tablecloth, placemat or even to double up with a usable napkin! Just use it!
5. STICKS, TWIGS, AND BLOOMS
I can’t pass up a curly stick, or an old wooden box or any kind organic fluff. I think these little “bits and pieces” add so much design to decor! Forgo a big, fussy centerpiece when looking to set an organic table and don’t forget to add flowers to your centerpiece, like I did! And add some sticks and twigs for height and interest. SIGH!
How about planting annuals right into a centerpiece? So pretty!
Aren’t these 5 tips easy-peasy? Here’s wishing you a spring filled with lots of chances to set a pretty organic table!
