How to Create a Spring Tablescape Design with a New Perspective

I was looking to design a spring tablescape that was happy change -- not only from the winter and Lunar New Year tablescapes that I had recently featured on our dining room country house table - but a different look. And to use nature's seasonal colors and themes.

Here I played with the the visual of the vase. Rather than a more traditional vase where all the cut florals are in either tall or low vases -- where the blossom takes center stage - I stood the tulips up - and it created an entirely new look.

With four tall vases -- odd numbers are usually best in landscape garden design compositions as well as tablescapes - no need for all matchy/matchy. However, here the “even-steven” number of the vase focal point worked just fine.

I filled the bottom of the tall vases with cut blue decorative glass.

I placed them on round mirrors to amplify the look and create more visual interest for seated dining guests.

I brought out my happy, little glass bunnies that accessorize all kinds of spring home decor displays.
Tiny blue candles worked. And the speckled blue eggs are another spring decorating favorite. Here, I grouped around the vases; the mirror centerpieces makes it look like there are oodles of eggs!

Still, the tablescape display called out for more. I tried the glass candle holders in varying sizes. I filled the candle bowls with spring peas - usually used for split pea soup - and nestled the blue floating candles on top of the peas.

I added the tiny garden ornaments place/name holders and just like that -- the glorious spring colors of yellow, blue, and green beamed joyfully.
You can use any color combinations that blends or reflects your home decor or spring spirit! I updated the tulips today with a yellow/tangerine or sunrise/sunset hue. Beautiful.

The change-up in the height and style of the tulips in the vase standing up makes the viewer linger to enjoy.

It works!

If you’re looking to design a tablescape that will make your spring guests swoon, consider this design.
