My Favorite Colors for A Spring Tablescape

Do you have favorite colors to use for a Spring tablescape?



Yes, I do love green and white for Spring, it's always so crisp, so springy. But my very, very favorite combinations of color always include . . 


You guessed it, aqua or turquoise! I am always drawn to these gorgeous colors, whether it is a soft pale aqua or a bold beautiful turquoise, it always catches my eye and draws me in. Does this happen to you when you see your favorite colors?


You might as well hit me on the head because I am taken away with this color. It takes me to a calm, peaceful and relaxing place. Life is good!


Now that you are reminded, once again, of this aqua turquoise obsession of mine, I can talk about the rest of my tablescape. 

As my guests gather to take a seat, initialed tags are circled around the centerpiece. Each can choose a tag and turn it to the seat of their choice. Now everyone is sitting exactly where they want to be. (Unless someone grabs the seat they had their mind set on.)


The centerpiece is a white pitcher filled with faux ranunculus and other flower buds waiting to bloom. The pitcher is sitting on a small white pizza plate by Fiesta ware.  


My stack of white cabbage dishes are Bordallo Pinheiro. The cabbage design makes a great spring pattern. The veins and edges of the pieces make it interesting.


My stack starts with a charger or chop plate, a dinner plate, a salad plate and a bowl. There is a small fruit bowl to the upper left of the stack. 


Green napkins, yellow flower napkin rings, and green flatware were used to accent the green and yellow in the tablecloth.


The stemware has a tint of a transparent blue and the stem is a transparent green. 



There you have it, a lovely centerpiece . . .


and a spring tablescape with my favorite colors.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have your favorite colors for a spring tablescape in mind - Judy.

Here's another tablescape of mine using the pink Bordallo at Easter.

  11. Judy, you always create beautiful tablescapes, but I think this one is my favorite. The centerpiece may contain faux flowers, but they look so real! The tags are very pretty, too. And I'm wishing I had those dishes!!!

  12. A lovely tablescape...wonderful idea with the name tags too. I love your white cabbage dinnerware. I have the bowls in various spring colors but I'd love to have a whole set of the design.

  14. Wonderful colors- absolutely spring like! The centerpiece is perfect and I really like the tablecloth. The white dishes pop off it and I love the stemware pieces. I have them too but haven't used them on a tablescape yet. You've inspired my mind on using them!

  15. Such a pretty table! I LOVE your cabbage dishes; I've only seen them in green, but do love the white. I can see why aqua is a favorite color of yours. It does truly highlight everything on the table. Bravo! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  16. Gee, Judy...I am just SO shocked and SO surprised that aqua would be your favorite Springtime color!!! ;-)

    This is so pretty with the stark white dishes against the brilliant color. I love the other colors in the Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage line, but white is the prettiest because it's so unexpected!

    You did a great job on the centerpiece, and I love the idea of the initialed tags! What a great way to get people involved in picking out their own seat. That keeps YOU outta the hot seat...so to speak! :-)

    I hope you've enjoyed the weather we got yesterday and today. I was actually outside with no jacket on in a T-shirt!!! I'm waiting for the opportunity to just fling open the windows and let fresh air waft through!!!

    Have a great weekend! You should sign up and come to the PB free class on Sunday morning!

  17. Judy, your spring table makes me smile. We've just had yet another deep freeze and my newly budded camellia and my iris in bloom were all nipped. I'd also just put out geraniums in some pots, and though covered they look pretty sad. I obviously wasn't patient enough. '-(
    Thanks for sharing this lovely table setting. I'd like to find a set of white cabbage leaf dinnerware. I have some in the green, but your white is so fresh and elegant.

  18. Oh!! This is a pretty table!! I am so happy to see spring tables popping up. today was the first day it was over freezing in at least 10 days, I am soooo tired of piles of dirty snow! Your centerpiece is so pretty and love that stack of fabulous white dishes!
