How To Create A Neutral Spring Tablescape
I had so much fun putting together this spring inspired table! I am joining a few friends for a virtual brunch and this month is all about Spring. And, I want to share how to create a neutral spring tablescape.
Do you enjoy setting a beautiful table?
Oh, good! Me too!
I really enjoyed getting creative with this one using mainly things I already had.
Since my home is all neutral colors, I wanted to create a beautiful table for the Spring season that I could leave out for a while.
Follow along and let me share ideas for how to create a neutral spring tablescape.
When you are decorating a table, I recommend beginning with an inspiration piece. For this table, my inspiration was the egg flats I used as plate chargers. I got them several years ago from a restaurant.
You can ask a local restaurant (especially one that you frequent) if they have any they are getting rid of. Most likely, they will give them to you.
However, if you would rather not bother with that, you can find some here. They are super inexpensive and add visual interest and uniqueness to your table.
spring inspired place setting
Layered pieces add a lot of character to home decor. I like to incorporate layers into my tablescapes, as well.
For this spring/Easter table my first layer was a placemat. I already had these square woven placemats and thought the texture and color would be great for this table.
I added my egg flats on top of the woven chargers for my next layer.
When I think of Spring, I immediately think of Easter, flowers, eggs, bunnies, etc. So, I thought the egg flats were a perfect layer and addition.
Next up, was the layering of plates. I have a collection of brown transferware and decided to go with that for my dinner plate. They looked beautiful with my neutral bunny salad plates, which was the top layer.
Off white napkins were tied with a narrow brown/white grograin ribbon and topped off with a stem of “real touch” tulips. Don’t these tulips look so real?
To finish off each place setting, I added an egg stamped with each guests name. They are nestled in moss inside a vintage stemmed martini glass and placed bedside each plate.
If you want to see all of the details of the egg stamped placecards, you can see that here.
spring inspired centerpiece
Next up, I needed a centerpiece that would coordinate nicely with my theme and place settings. I remembered I had a large box of moss I had ordered for another project. So, I arranged a slightly irregular shape in the center of the table with the moss.
My daughter recently gifted me with a large round woven basket tray, so I added that on top of the moss.
Side note, you can obviously add the basket to your table first, then spread a bit of moss around it to conserve the amount of moss you use.
I’ve had this cute concrete bunny for years, and he was the first to go into the tray. I layed a few of the “real touch” tulips in his basket.
For some height, I added a potted english ivy that is growing on a topiary. A large grapevine birds nest filled with book page decoupaged eggs was added to my display and a potted flowering plant was tucked in to fill in the remaining space.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how to create a neutral spring tablescape! I loved thinking outside the box and putting it together with things I already had on hand.

Girl, I wished we lived closer. Everything you do inspires me to be more creative. I love those egg flats. What a unique Idea. I’m all about unique and different and you make my day with your ideas.
So glad you joined us on this adventure.
That is so sweet for you to say Rachel! And yes, I wish we were closer too, but we might get into trouble together!!
Everything is so lovely with a sophisticated friendly look saying “come and sit and let’s have a bite to eat”. Just so nice.
Oh, thank you! I’m so glad you like it!
I really appreciate you following along, and your kind words!
Michele i love your vintage-style tablescape! Those dishes are beautiful! xo
Thanks so much Stacy! I have kind of an obsession with dishes!
Wow! Michele. You outdid yourself. I love every detail. The egg flats are so creative and those stamped eggs in the glasses are just the cutest! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next month.
Aww, thanks so much Jen! I really appreciate your kind words.
And, I’m already planning next months table!
As always your details are amazing! Those square placemats and egg flats make for such a unique and beautiful place setting!
Thanks so much Anne! This was such a fun tablescape to create.
I am truly enjoying this Supper Club with you ladies!
What a clever use of egg crates. Who knew? Very pretty.
Thank you! I love using those for chargers on my Spring tablescapes!
Thanks so much for following along!
Okay so this is so cute but the egg crates put it over-the-top adorable! And those plates… Oh my golly. I’m headed to get so moss!
This is the cutest spring table, Michele! I am so in love with all the elements. Those dishes, the egg flats, I can’t even pick. Pinned lots! I would love to feature you in my weekly blog post tomorrow.
Thank you for sharing my Spring tablescape sweet friend!
And those spring pots you shared are adorable! Definitely making those!
What a beautiful table for spring! I pinned 2-3 images to my Pinterest board, Spring, to share your inspiration with others.

I loved this tablescape! So creative!
Thanks so much Rachel! I’m so glad you liked it and I really appreciate the kind words!
This is a great recycle and so darn cute using the egg cartons as chargers. I have the little bunny plates and brown and white transferware dishes but never thought to make a spring table with the soft feather greens.
I would love it if you would share this at my Friday With Friends Link Party:
Have a great weekend,
So glad you enjoyed it, and found some inspiration! And I would love to feature it on your link party. I will try and remember to post it this week.
Such a beautiful tablescape! I love your creativity! Loving and pinning it, Donna

Gosh I think this is one of the prettiest tables I’ve ever seen! The mix of the brown transfer with the green is SO lovely. I love all the textures that you created as well. Beautiful! Pinned!
Thanks so much Rachel! I really appreciate that and so glad you liked it.
I’ve got some of those egg flats and never knew what to do with them. Brilliant idea to use them on the table! Love the whole subtle-colored theme and love your brown transferware. Beautiful!
Thanks so much Lora! I love using those egg crates as plate chargers in the Spring.
A layered look always steals my heart, the way you have layered your table is fabulous and so inviting. I would not have thought to use an egg flat in this manner. Thank you so much for sharing with Whimsy Home Wednesday and inspiring us again.
I’m so glad you like it Cara! Thanks so much!
What a lovely table setting Michele! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I’m excited to tell you this post will be featured in this week’s Tuesday Turn About Link Party! Thanks for sharing your creativity and we hope to see you at the party this week! Pinned!
