Signs of spring are all around with bulbs blooming aplenty. It’s still a little chilly but the nights are getting progressively longer. I can already feel sunnier days are around the corner. And, I love a good tablescape in early spring to signify the seasonal changes. It’s a perfect lead-up to Easter and family gatherings.

Inspired by coastal design, they are experts at turning homes into soothing havens. Their collection of stylish products provides an uncomplicated warmth and beauty to the home. Utilising neutral palettes and natural materials. Layered Lounge are perfect for my spring table setting. I wanted something neutral and minimal but with a soft romantic and feminine touch. Great for early spring, giving a little warmth to lighter evenings that are still chilly.
Here are my 6 top tips for creating your own early spring tablescape:
To add height and texture to your setting – stack crockery and napkins upon natural placemats. I love these ice blue napkins from Layered Lounge used alongside their rattan placemats.
There is nothing nicer than natural lighting. Candles provide a perfect romantic andwarm touch to your tablescape. I love this white candle trough for its lovely Scandi appeal and these wonderfully modern glass tea lights.
Elements of nature
Whether opting for natural sprigs of foliage or faux sprays of flowers, bringing nature into the home for spring is essential. Its that feel good promise of warmer days and longer evenings. Magnolia trees are so symbolic of spring. Happily, Bath is filled with their blooms right now. To help incorporate my spring tablescape I have used this glorious faux magnolia spray in a beautiful rattan vase on the unit behind the table.
A neutral palette
To incorporate a neutral palette into my tablescape I have used a mix of stoneware with delicate edges and just a hint of colour. See image below for details of the pasta bowl and dinner plate.
I love adding a pop of gold to a neutral palette. Too much as it can be overbearing but just a little and it can add a touch of glamour to a setting. I love this matt champagne cutlery and serve spoon. Beautifully presented and ergonomically designed.
Using materials that are synonymous with the outdoors will stand out as providing a warm grounding environment for the home. Rattan and cork are both favourites of mine. For this tablescape I have used this fabulous cork baking tray alongside that wonderful rattan vase on the unit behind. Using soft materials in rustic textures like linen work wonderfully well with this too like this tablecloth, table runner and napkins.
