Get inspired to decorate your dining room for spring using these simple ideas that you can copy in your own home. Faux greenery and florals are your friends!
Welcome to my dining room, my friends! I’m excited to be participating in the Spring Festival Bloghop hosted by my friend Kendra over at Joy In Our Home. We’re sharing different aspects of spring decorating every day this week and today we’re focusing on Spring Vignettes.
I’ll be honest, my dining room doesn’t get used a lot – typically only three or four times per year. But it’s a room that’s visible from our foyer and is a pass through to other rooms in our home, so I always like to update the decorations in it for every season and holiday. I almost always include a tablescape to go along with the season and this spring is no different. Honestly, the tablescape is so prominent in the room that it’s like one big vignette!
Before I even added any spring decor to the rest of the room, I started by raiding my stash for items to create this pretty table. I think that the shades of green found in eucalyptus work well with my painted gray furniture, so I started my tablescape by intertwining two eucalyptus garlands with white berries together. One garland alone looked too skimpy, but by weaving two of them together it gave me a nice lush garland to run down the center of the table.
Once the garland was in place, I added white candles to all of the crystal candlesticks that I had on hand and tucked them into the greenery – sort of staggering them down the center of the table. After the candlesticks were added, I simply tucked in a few pale pink faux peonies and cabbage roses. I think the soft shade of pink looks so pretty with the eucalyptus!
Each place setting is so simple to put together! Pretty chargers with a scalloped edge, topped by gray dinner plates along with a pale pink napkin bound with a boxwood napkin ring. To add a little more interest, I added a cute little mini candle holder to each place setting too.
Did you notice that I didn’t even add any silverware? I really don’t think it’s necessary if you’re only using your tablescape for decorating purposes.
If you’ve been following along with me for a while, then you might have noticed that I took down the vintage shelf that used to be above the sideboard and replaced it with two wall hangings. I love the less cluttered look and am still trying to decide whether or not to keep my diy hanging lanterns there or replace them with something else. I think different lamps might be in order too. What do you think?
In the meantime, I added a couple of plates to each of the baskets below the lanterns and tucked a couple of peonies into each one to carry the color across the room.
On the other side of the room, I added more eucalyptus by displaying a wreath on the mirror. One of my favorite things to do in this room! The wreath is held in place with a suction cup hook, but you can also use Command Strip hooks. To finish that area off, I added a cute strand of wooden beads with tassels around the lamp base and a couple of gray accessories that I had on hand. Easy decorations that anyone can copy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. You’ll want to be sure to come back each day this week to be inspired by everyone else’s ideas!
