Dress Up Your Table With Fresh Spring Flowers

Spring is just around the corner and with it, the special celebrations like Easter, Motherís day, graduations, bridal events etc. This is a great time of year to dress up your table with fresh spring flowers and use all those gorgeous bright colors. Personally, I prefer tablecloths with solid colors, using it just like a painting, as a background to showcase the centerpiece and the tableware. I love the yellows, oranges, sage green and rust colors. The fresh colors of daffodils mixed with red tulips on a mustard color tablecloth with maybe rust color napkins will guarantee a striking effect!

Small potted plants are also wonderful centerpieces for an outdoor rustic-chic look. This time of year nurseries abound with six packs of, Johnny Jump up Pansies, Daffodils, Tulips, Narcissus... You can either plant them in small terra cotta pots or slip them in fun small containers dressed up with moss.

Another idea that will brighten any buffet table is to use a ceramic water pitcher, fill it up with daffodils, add 2 or 3 red or orange tulips & finish with a few twigs covered with buds.

Happy Spring!
