In my opinion, hosting a picnic is one of the best ways to welcome Spring. (Remember the Danish Easter picnic?). Also, it’s an excuse to get crafty and enjoy a meal with friends or family. Whether it’s an outdoor gathering or indoor celebration, make it extra special by creating your own decor!
We’ve got some ideas for your next gathering. From centerpieces, to table settings, to a pastel decor theme, these tutorials will put you right in that Springtime mood. Check out all of the tutorials below!
Spring tablescape place settings
TIP: For place settings, I bought these little wooden eggs and put each person’s monogram on it. Find the full tutorial for them here. You can also check out how to make a mini basket place setting here.
The perfect centerpiece for your pastel tablesetting
TIP: Melissa Esplin of I Still Love You created a beautiful “Happy Easter” sign that works perfectly in a basket. OR, you can make it mini and stick it in some Easter eggs (like she did here). OR print it off really huge and use it as a decoration. I love her work. Download the template here. Learn how to make the Tulip centerpiece here. (Plus, you can create it to match your tableware).

TIP: I LOVE these ombre candle votives! I think they’d also be perfect for baby showers, bridal showers, and birthdays, doncha think? Find the full tutorial for them here.
