After a long, dull winter, it’s time to bring out the pretty! Spring table settings can do just that, and they don’t have to cost much.  In fact, using what you have around your home it doesn’t have to cost anything.  Dining table decor doesn’t have to be complicated.  Simple table settings are best.  Take a look at some of these table setting ideas for spring or every day this season.

The name of the game for spring table settings is fresh.  The play is bright.  Spring tablescapes get us in the mood for something new and inviting in a much different way than their winter counterparts.  

Tips for spring table settings:

  • Keep your colors in the same family, or use all the same hues.
  • Use fresh flowers as a main part of your decor.
  • Brighten up your table with placemats or chargers.
  • Use “natural” napkin rings.
  • Let a simple seasonal centerpiece be the star of your table.
  • Use seasonal holiday decor (Easter)

Let’s take a look at some easy spring table settings:

I absolutely love using natural greens with my table settings and centerpieces.  Keeping your table simple with light colors and adding fresh greens that can also double as a take-home gift is an easy decorating idea for your spring table. This succulent is pretty – and all the rage right now!

Using what you have on-hand already to create a centerpiece is a budget friendly decor idea for spring (and any other time of year).  Creating a centerpiece in monochromatic colors in a vessel that you already own can be changed seasonally.  This type of table centerpiece works with a table setting for everyday and can be used as dining table decor for the place your family eats their meals.

Easter Table Setting Ideas

Easter table settings are some of my favorite spring time hobbies.  I love all of the pretty pastel hues that I don’t often remember to use the rest of the year, and something as simple as a little decorative egg can be used to set a beautiful table.

Another idea for easy Easter table decorations is to use a simple Easter decoration (below a simple rooster wire basket is used), and fill it with eggs and Easter grass.  You can use anything you have – a pretty spring bowl, or even an Easter basket.  Place a pretty cookie on each plate and you’ve set a beautiful table for Easter.

Taking out seldom used linens

Do you have some pretty linens that you don’t use that often because it just seems to “spring” or too “summer” for any other time of the year? It’s time to bring them out, pair a placemat with a coordinating charger , and keep all of the colors in the same family.  Tie up your napkin with some natural twine, and you’ve created a fresh, easy table setting for spring!

Using fresh herbs on your table:

There is something really special about using fresh herbs as part of your spring tablescape.  If your table is near a window, and you’re good with plants, purchase some small planted herbs at the beginning of the season, and wrap them in burlap.  Arrange them around the center of your table and use them all season as your centerpiece.  On Easter or Mother’s Day use these same plants as decor on each table setting and gift them to your guests to take home.

There isn’t anything simpler for setting a spring table than picking up a pot of fresh flowers and placing it in the middle of the table.  Add some fresh greens to finish off the rest of your table decor.
