A little spring in the dining room


Hello friends I hope you’re doing well.  I’m so happy to be joining my friends on today’s styling tour, hosted by Town and Country Living.
In this post, I wanted to give you a little glimpse of my process which I use to style my dining room.

When styling a tablescape, I always have a focal point. This is usually a centerpiece that I’ve created, either a vase with flowers or a vignette or arrangement.  I made this one from grocery store flowers. I simply created a grid using tape and inserted the flowers.

I then collect different items within our home that contain similar colors, such as napkins, plates, bowls etc.  Always shop your home first.  Springdecoratingdiningroomcrafttberrybush-10
I did buy this egg garland at Michaels and cut it so I could use the eggs. I mixed the fake eggs and real eggs in a bowl. As you can see they coordinate well with the tulips and flowers in the centerpiece.

I then set what I call a ‘fake set’. I place the items along the table in various groups of threes each of varying heights.

I will move items around and if needed, I’ll add height to create more depth to the table.

For this particular table, I decided that the cakes were taking away from the pretty centerpiece, so I decided to remove them.  Springdecoratingdiningroomcrafttberrybush-19

I think the cake as stand alone, would be a beautiful centerpiece. I’ll have a tutorial of this cake later on next week but for now, I removed it from the table.  Springdecoratingdiningroomcrafttberrybush-5
And kept the table super simple…

    Your centerpiece is stunning! The colors are so soft and gorgeous… :-) I sometimes do the’ fake set’ too, but never gave it a name. I like that! Also love the use of the theory of threes – always works in visual presentations and done beautifully here. Lovely!!
