First Impressions: A Fresh Take on Spring Table Design

Rhapsody in bloom.

The Inspiration

Coastal blue and bright white place settings are perfect for a California-inspired spring table. Add sophisticated, eye-catching details like the mini blue-and-white patterned Thai vases. Elegant vintage stemware helps elevate the look. However, if you plan to entertain alfresco, we recommend crystal-like acrylic glassware instead. Marin deep indigo blue napkins complement the palette … have fun with your favorite pop of color to accent the table décor! 

A seasonal market mixed bouquet is all you need to create a spring centerpiece arrangement. To portray the feel of blooming cherry blossom, add a splash of long-lasting ornamental St. John’s wort to the bouquet and table vases. Splurge on dainty gold napkin rings and modern white-and-gold flatware to complete the look.
