After a long winter, use nature's bounty to liven up your tabletop and usher in the spring season with style.
Spring blooms are one of the first signs of the season's arrival. A vase filled with hardy daffodils, or a stem placed atop place settings, is a simple way to signal spring on your table.
Yellow and purple set a festive scheme on this springy tabletop. A floral salad plate nods to the blooms emerging outside as well as the cut flowers on the table.
On this colorful table, abundant spring asparagus is cleverly put to use as place card holders. Simple white plates and napkins are crisp and fresh atop a turquoise tablecloth.
Festive on their own, green grass, tulips, ranunculas, rainbow carrots, and died eggs combine for a perfectly lively Easter centerpiece that showcases spring's bounty.
Magnetic butterflies—attached to plates and vases alike—add a bit of whimsy to this pretty-in-pink table. Blue plates keep the sweet scheme from overhwleming.
Purple chargers echo the hue of the fresh-cut blooms on this breakfast table. Green and yellow napkins add a dose of spring color; petite bird nest decorations complete the look.
It doesn't take much to turn a simple place setting into one that wows. To spiff up your everyday tabletop, add a playful napkin, like this pink one with a trellis pattern, and some garden fresh blooms.

Verdant green evokes the promise of regrowth in spring and is equally appealing on a tabletop. A textural table runner and charger paired with the marbled bowl creates interest.
