Spring Dining Table Decor

One of my quarter goals was to entertain in my home more often. It might have taken me to the end of the quarter, but I finally had some friends over for dinner. It was a Monday night dinner so I wanted something simple, but that captured the feeling of spring. Table decorating is a favorite thing for me but it has to check a couple of boxes for me.

It has to work with my existing items.

It has to be cheap.

It has to be easy to move, since I serve my dinners family style.

Here is what I came up with.

I started with a runner from the Target dollar section and paired it with a bowl of lemons and some Easter egg salt and pepper shakers I was given two Easters’ ago.

You want to work with the dishes you have. I love white plates because then you can add in fun bowls so add variety. Also, cloth napkins!!! Cloth napkins make you seem so much more grownup. I buy all mine at antique stores or thrift stores.

Side note, antique stores can be a great place to find budget dinnerware. Beside the napkins, I also found my floral coupe wine glasses at my favorite antique store for 50 cents a piece.

Alternating napkin colors can be a great way to make it look intentional design decision when instead you actually only have 4 of a certain color.

Another easy way to tie everything together when you don’t have a matching set of everything is to repeat pattern. The polka dot runner goes with my polka dot bowls, which match my wedding Kate Spade polka dot stemless wine glasses.
