Hey friends! Thanks for stopping by today! Before we begin, I wanted to remind you to follow along with me on Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, HomeTalk and Facebook, so you don’t miss another post! Also, if you missed our Spring mantel, click here for lots of diy tips and farmhouse goodness!
I love this time of year…the cool breeze that gently moves through our open doors/windows, the sound of nature that seems to sing a little louder and the days that go a little longer. We can leave the doors open without worrying that we’ll let out heat or a/c. New birth appears — in the colorful flowers, the fresh, green grass and the trees that are all blooming. This new birth also reminds me of Easter, where we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior! Did I mention that I love Spring??!! 😉
And decorating our table for this beautiful season was so much fun. When I was trying to decide how I wanted to decorate our home this year, I knew I really wanted to have that natural, rustic feel with soft greenery, so I’m really excited to share with you how this tablescape turned out! I didn’t spend over $10 for any one item, and half of this decor is diy! I shopped my house for the other essentials. Actually, most of you probably already have these items in your own home as well! And if you missed our live video tutorial on how I styled our table and mantel for Spring, please click this link here to watch the replay. 😉
Let’s start with the first layer…the table runners. I had some thin, white fabric sitting around, so all I did to make this runner was tear a 2-foot strip of fabric lengthwise. Then, I hot-glued 4 layers of ruffles to this runner on either end. Very easy!
The second layer of runners is actually a diy moss runner that cost a mere $2!! Please click this link to find out how I did it. 🙂 This project was so easy!
Now that my runners were complete, it was time to shop my house for the accessories. Again, I was going for that natural, rustic look, so when it came to gathering accessories, I kept my mind on what was a “natural” accessory: antlers, greenery, white beans (I’ll get to that later), flowers, birch, and nests. And then of course, you want to add a variety of textures: fabrics, wood, moss and metals.
What do you think about these faux-greenery chargers? They’re so easy to make, and I love how natural they look! Click here for that post. You’ll love making them, and they were only $5 each! Score!
Also, have you noticed those white, fabric napkins? Well, they’re actually feedsack dish towels, and they’re huge and soft! You can find a four-pack at Target or Walmart for under $5….Recently, I found a 10-pack at Walmart for under $8! You definitely need to have at least one set in your home! 😉 Also, the white plates are a thrift-store purchase that were 25 cents each.
I love this white-washed and stenciled DIY pot that’s sitting on my wood pedestal. That project was another very easy thing to do! Click here to learn how to make them.
When setting up your centerpiece, be sure to add a variation in height and texture. Also, don’t forget that you want to be able to see your family’s or guests’ faces, so don’t make your decor too tall, right? 😉
When shopping my house, I found an old, vintage box and turned it upside down to add a “stage” for my old, concrete pots. The birch wood slice is from my sweet mama, and the glass cloche is a staple that I got from PB Outlet. The variety of gold candleholders are from thrift stores, and I haven’t paid more than $1 for any of them! The faux, pink peony is from a local crafts’ store that I got half-off.
I love our gold flatware! You can dress them up or down, and they pair really well with our gold candleholders!
I love our dining table and cane-chairs set! I found these beauties at Goodwill a couple of years ago. Back then, they were a tired and outdated dining set, but with a little tlc, it’s gorgeous and adds the perfect farmhouse touch!
