Spring Table Inspiration: Flowers & Arrangements

I don’t want to jinx mother nature, but we finally appear to be turning the corner with spring. You guys, it has been an effing long winter and I am SO happy it is over. I even caught myself going through the spring cleaning ritual yesterday. One minute I was getting rid of a shirt that my son had outgrown. The next minute his dresser contents were all over the floor and I had a fresh bag of hand-me-downs. I also went through our pantry and dining room chucking this and that and even had the windows open for a little while. Welcome, spring, we need you to freshen us all up right now!

I’ve been having a little fun styling up our table for Easter and generally getting things put together again and thought it would be fun to look at some photos for inspiration. Here are a few of my favorite spring tables styles from around the web:

Sometimes I forget how food makes a great centerpiece. A giant footed bowl, or even a cake stand, piled high with a pyramid of fresh tangerines is so pretty and bright! (via Frances Palmer)

I love the newly revived Dodie Thayer line for Tory Burch. This green is my favorite color in the whole world and it would be the most gorgeous table setting for spring and summer. (via Tory Burch) egg2

These egg shells holding flowers and succulents are adorable. This would be such a fun project with kids! (via Camilla Styles)

Anna’s friend Chinae just launched an event company and created these gorgeous flower arrangements. I love how they are dramatic without feeling heavy. They’d be beautiful for the late winter/early spring Easter we are going to have this year. (via The Yellow Table)

Artichokes are my favorite vegetable so this is right up my alley. A big pitcher full of artichokes would look so pretty on a side table or a countertop where they can really make a statement. (via Shelterness)

This is one of my favorites. I love the almost uniform color scheme of the tulips and clementines. It doesn’t take away from the food and adds just the right amount of pop. (via The Urban Farmhouse)

Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers. These simple forced pots of daffodils and latte bowls of eggs are so charming. I might do this and fill the bowls with eggs my kids have dyed. (via Williams-Sonoma)

These cute centerpieces are so fun and would be great to make with kids. I might even make them with my daughter! (via Oh Joy!)

Blue and white is so simple and chic you don’t need many extras to finish the table. In this case a big bunch of white hydrangeas and yellow napkins are all that is needed to add dimension and round out the design. (via Country Living)

Which one is your favorite?
