Hello and thank you so very much for joining me today as I share my Lemon and Lime Spring Tablescape. The focus for this tablescape is the centerpiece. As I thought about what Spring meant to me I knew immediately that I wanted my table to feel fresh; garden fresh, spring fresh and renewed. What better way to get that freshness than to take the table outside and incorporate living elements in the centerpiece.
Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate has organized this fun and inspiring tablescape Blog Hop. Truly there is something for everyone and for every budget! I am so happy to be here with this group of creative artists. You will find all of the links at the end of this post for tons of Spring inspiration.
The first step to creating my living centerpiece was a trip to the market. Of course I would love to be able to grow my own lemon and lime trees but North Texas is prone to some hard some freezes.
I purchased lemons, limes, parsley, rosemary, and Mexican Tarragon to add to some tulip bulbs that I am forcing to bloom. I also added in a couple of brown egg shells that are sprouting cat grass for an upcoming Easter project.
To finish this natural centerpiece I added just a little faux because I don’t have any Forsythia. But isn’t it so realistic and truly I find mixing real and faux greenery or blooms works out very well. Then for good measure I add a few sweet ceramic chicks and a bunny too.
Keeping everything basic and simple right here with a white tablecloth and yellow napkins and of course lemon and lime print bowls.
Then the other fun part of this tablescape begins and that is incorporating goodies from my girls!
These placemats and hand painted goblets are from my Samantha and the ceramic Oil dispenser is from Amanda.
Amanda brought this back from her trip to Cinque Terre, Italy!
This happy yellow teapot is a sweet treasure from Tessa.
For our family the quessential Spring dessert is always Strawberry shortcake!
Of course every Lemon and Lime Tablescape needs a Lemon wreath to welcome family and friends!
Happy Spring Friends! Thank you for embracing nature with me today as I shared this thrifty and natural Lemon and Lime Spring tablescape.
