5 EASY TIPS FOR SETTING AN ORGANIC TABLE
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 nest 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!
3. USE THE COLORS OF NATURE
A limited color palate 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! And 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 ANNUALS
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 plant seasonal annuals in a planter or old wooden box, like I did! Don’t forget to add some sticks and twigs for height and interest. SIGH!
Aren’t these 5 tips easy-peasy? Here’s wishing you a spring filled with lots of chances to set a pretty organic table!

Beautiful,Yvonne! Thanks for sharing. Happy Easter!
I always look forward to reading, as well as seeing what is new on your blog. After looking at your tablescape, I could not help seeing the beautiful silverware with the bees on the handle. My father raised bee’s and they always remind me of him. May I enquire where you got them? I would love to get a few sets. Always a pleasure, Nancy.
See my comment to Pamela. Happy Easter!
Love it every element is perfect! Thank you for your great ideas. Where do you get the grapevine chargers? Have a Blessed Easter!

Beautiful! Where did you find the little grapevine balls. Pier One only sell the large ones now.
Thank you for your words of faith and have a blessed Easter.
It all looks wonderful, I keep looking for some brown glasses here in the UK, so far no luck! Happy Easter to you and yours x
Beautiful, where did you find the grapevine chargers? Did you make them?
Absolutely beautiful! I love this idea of an unfussy Easter table – always get so much inspiration from your posts…
Simply beautiful – I also want to know where you got your gapevine chargers! I have been looking for them — but only find the too-even straw woven! Would love the grapevie ones —
Hi Diane! The chargers came from Pottery Barn Outlet. They had tons when I was there last week.
Yvonne you always set the most stunning table no matter what you use and this one is just beautiful.
Where did you find those sweet bird napkin holders? Trying to set a bird theme tablescape, and they are perfect. Love your creativity!
Hi Penny, I got them at Luckett’s in VA years ago. I’m not sure who makes them!
I love the natural elements you tied in with the day. All these tablescapes I love, but I always wonder where you put the food? Do you serve buffet style?
I usually serve a beverage and good conversation for awhile at the table. Then I take away all the plates. If I serve a buffet, the plates show up on the buffet table and if I serve each person I use them to serve.
I’ve already got my table setting planned thanks to your previous posts.
Are you hosting an Easter brunch or dinner? What’s on your menu?
Love your ideas for an organic table setting…….thanks for the inspiration! You always have such great ideas.
Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter as we celebrate the risen Lord!
Blessings to you,
Beautiful! Very nicely done.
Love this ! !! So about that flatware . Have you had it/washed it long enough to give a review? I’m really thinking about ordering it!
What a perfect table to set outdoors Yvonne!…Beautiful, beautiful!
I love the dishes you used. Could you share where you found these?
Hi Anne, The dishes came from HomeGoods.
I love all your tablescapes! I have used many of your ideas in the past. I would like to ask that you show the entire table sometime. The close-ups are beautiful, but it would help me to see the setting in relation to the table. Thanks!
Lauren, I so enjoy your decorating style and all of your tips. My husband is a retired professional beekeeper, so I would really like to know where you got the flatware. I have just started following decorating blogs as we plan to build our “happily ever after” home: yours is my favorite.
Hi Cynthia, I have always thought I’d love to keep bees! Here is the flatware source:https://amzn.to/2H0xZq2
Enjoy building your home! God bless you in your new home!
