It certainly feels like spring here at the Rosevine Cottage, so we wanted to bring some of those beautiful colors and textures into a spring tablescape in our dining room. It gives the space a bit of cheer on those dreary rainy days the sun doesn’t put in an appearance. For today’s look, we mixed dried and fresh flowers to create a cozy early spring look. I love how it reminds me of a greenhouse or potting shed, with an eclectic collection of this and that waiting in anticipation for spring.
Tablescapes are one of my favorites to put together and I really love how this one came together, it’s the perfect cheerful look for a rainy day like the one I’m writing this on- and it’s easy to update as we get closer and closer to spring.
Pin for later!

Farmhouse Spring Tablescape
As with any table decorations, when designing a spring tablescape there are some things you should keep in mind:
- Don’t make your centerpiece so wide you can’t fit plates, and make sure it’s not so tall no one can see over it.
- Layers are a great idea for a spring tablescape.
- Start in the center and move out as you decorate.
- Try to mirror your decor on either end of your spring tablescape
Tips For Creating Farmhouse Table Decor
- Consider the decorations you have in place around your home and try to stick with that theme in your spring tablescape.
- Keep in mind the shape and size of your table when designing your spring tablescape.
- Balance is key when designing a centerpiece for a spring tablescape.
- Layering is always a beautiful look on a table, try layering plates on top of chargers, or layering your decor as we did for this look.

Creating a farmhouse style spring tablescape is a wonderful way to add that spring cheer to your home. Some great things to include would be:

Spring Farmhouse Table Decor: Setting A Table
Setting a table is all about finding a balance between functional and beautiful, some basics to follow when setting a table for a spring tablescape are:
- Start with your plate (if you are using a placemat and or charger as we are for this look set them in place first)
- Utensils are placed in order of use, starting on the outside and working your way in.
- Forks go on the left side of the plate and the knife and spoon on the right side of the plate (if you aren’t planning on setting the whole table and just place the plates like we did skip this step.)

Designing Our Spring Tablescape
For this look we went with a galvanized trough for the base of our centerpiece, from there we built up and out filling each section of the trough with a collection of spring-themed pieces (like ceramic chickens, dried and fresh flowers, blown eggs and nests). To either end of the centerpiece, we stacked ceramic pots we white-washed with layers of moss and placed a nest in the top of.
For our table settings, we used lace placemats, with eye-let patterned chargers and pretty yellow floral plates. We topped the look with white napkins with pink peony and hydrangea napkin rings and milk jug place holders.
