use The power of white.
Crisp, fresh white always makes a statement. A spring table setting of mostly white can look extremely elegant. To add some softness, set a short white vase overflowing with pale blue or lavender hydrangeas in the center of the table.
For a spring table setting with a nod to the South, use a subtle gingham pattern in your linens. Save the red checkered tablecloth look for your summer BBQ party, though.
How does your garden grow?
For a laid-back garden party, fill galvanized buckets with gardening tools as centerpieces, and set packets of flower seeds at each place setting.

ease into Easter.
For a fun Easter table, use your kids’ Easter baskets filled with colored eggs and traditional Easter candy (no half-eaten chocolate rabbits, please). For a large affair, set a mini Easter basket overflowing with daisies at each place setting.
Decorate your spring table with fun cupcake “sprinkles” (real or paper), and use tiered tasting platters filled with various types and colors of mini cupcakes as centerpieces. Send your guests home with some extras.

Get crafty with the kids.
Set your kids’ table up for some crafty play! Give kids some construction paper, glitter and glue, and encourage them to make their own spring-themed placemats that they can take home at the end of the party. They’ll busy themselves with their masterpieces while the adults enjoy a fine spring luncheon. Everyone wins!
