Spring pastel tablesetting

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!

Yesterday I showed how to make the paper tulip centerpiece and I thought I’d provide an idea on how to display it in a beautiful pastel tablesetting for your Spring celebration, whether it be your outdoor Easter dinner or Mother’s Day brunch. Wouldn’t pastels be so lovely? I used to cringe at pastels but now I find them so beautiful, especially when combined with some deeper tones like the colors in the flowers and the ombre candle holders I decorated. I’ll show a few of the DIYs later in the day, but for now, here are some ways to celebrate the Spring.

Pastel tableware

TIP: I picked up all of the tableware from Ikea. They have the loveliest colors right now. Mint plates and bowls, pink and white candle holders, a beautiful white pitcher. AND, they are so so cheap! I have a thing for plates so I kind of think you can never have too many!

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).

Create the right ambience

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. For more Spring ombre DIYs, check out how to make an ombre flower holder. It’s the perfect tool to gather up some flowers for decoration!
