Happy Spring Tablescape Ideas (Mostly Thrifted)

If you need a little dose of happy right now, I put together two spring tablescape ideas using mostly thrifted and handmade items that I already owned.  It was a fun exercise in using what I have and I hope you like these happy spring tablescape ideas!

The one new addition are those egg shaped plates.  I bought them back in February at a home decor store and I have been so eggcited to use them (I couldn’t find them online, but these are sort of similar-ish).  Surprisingly, I don’t spend a lot of time, or money, in home decor stores – partly because I’m budgeting, but also because I prefer to thrift for vintage or make something myself.  But these plates are turquoise and egg shaped (and handmade in Portugal), so I couldn’t resist.  Because I’m chicken obsessed, I plan the use them for every day use.  Get used to seeing them in all of my tablescapes.  How can I work them into December decor?  Hmmmmm….

My new egg shaped plates inspired me to create a spring tablescape using only pastel pink and aqua, but it ended up very simple and minimalist so I layered on some more colors and textiles and created a more eclectic version.  What do you prefer?

Version 1 – Simple and minimal:

Minimal Spring Tablescape Details:

Here’s a closer look at my more minimal spring tablescape.  I had picked up the vintage pink table cloth as well as the vintage aqua and pink napkins many months ago – I just can’t resist pretty vintage linens and finding them in mint (or near perfect) condition is always a treat.  I still have much of my vintage McCoy pottery collection, so I used four pink basket weave planters, with some moss leftover from last spring’s projects, to display a perfect, freshly laid turquoise egg.

The potted spring blooms are from my grocery store – only $12.99 and, apparently, once they are done blooming I can plant the bulbs and they will flower next spring – that’s definitely better value than cut flowers!

I thrifted the aqua egg shaped salt and pepper shakers (see here for similar).  Hubby loves his pepper grinder so we haven’t used a matching salt and pepper shaker set for 10 years but I hate the pepper mill – it barely cuts them in half, so I now have my own pepper shaker and I love it.  I have missed finely ground pepper.

I accidentally set the table with an extra spoon, lol, can you spot it?

Eclectic Spring Tablescape Details:

For the more eclectic version, I added a vibrant green and aqua tablecloth my Mom and I sewed many years ago (see here for similar).  You can use this tutorial to make your own or, if you’re making a square or rectangular tablecloth, use this tutorial for sewing a mitered corner.

I also pulled some vintage Lily of the Valley tea cups from my cabinets.  I used to have a Lily of the Valley tea cup collection but, when we moved to the lakehouse, I didn’t have the space and it didn’t suit the vibe.  I have sold a few pieces, here and there, and keep meaning to sell the rest as a lot but every time I pull them out to photograph, I’m reminded of how pretty they are!  As much as I love tea, it’s rare I use a tea cup – I prefer mugs!  But for a pretty spring tablescape like this, they’re perfect and I love the mismatched/matching vibe.

I swapped my egg shaped salt and pepper shakers for more eclectic decor: a pretty turquoise creamer a friend sent, rocking chicken shaped salt and pepper shakers (thrifted), and some egg shaped candles – also thrifted, but I only wanted those egg cups and they were in the same bulk bag.  But the yellow polka dots were perfect so I decided to use up the candles too.

I love the quirky design of these salt and pepper shakers – they rock, and the rooster is bigger than the hen, which is cute too.  I now have three sets of chicken-themed salt and pepper shakers – I am worried that a new collection is happening and I have no control over it, haha.  I haven’t filled these with salt and pepper yet – only my egg shaped ones get daily use.

These two spring tablescape ideas were really fun to put together.  I hope I inspired you to add a little magic to your next meal and shop your house to put together something eclectic – or minimalist.  It’s easy to get into a rut, and we are definitely guilty of eating in front of the TV more than I care to admit, but setting a beautiful tablescape is a fun way to make everyday meals more special and to welcome spring.  Although it snowed here recently – and you can see the piles of snow through the windows in these photos – this cheery tablescape inspiration put me in a spring mood!  There’s something so uplifting about pastel colors.

    I have these exact same pink McCoy planters and have never clued in that I could display them at Easter as you have done here. So thanks, they’re going to look fab on my dining room table this year. Also, as an fyi, if anyone needs moss, you can get it at Dollarama for probably cheaper than a florist.

      I love that you have those McCoy planters too! I’m excited that you’re going to use them on the table too. And good tip on the moss, you’ll laugh but that’s where I originally got mine from too. I want to try and learn how to harvest my own this year – we have so much around here.
