A Promise of Spring Tablescape

Although we have a few weeks before Spring officially arrives, I’m starting to see some hints that it’s just around the corner. I’ve joined some of blogging friends from all around the country to share what Spring looks like on their Tablescapes.

I’m sharing a Promise of Spring Tablescape that was inspired by some of my thrifty finds this month. These romantic finds are a perfect addition to the table since it is Valentine’s Day. In addition, you will see hints of warmer days ahead with some fresh greenery and forced blooms.

If you are coming over from Kim at Shiplap & Shells, wow, I’m so glad you made it all the way to NC from Washington State. Isn’t Kim’s table perfect for this promise of Spring?


The Inspiration

Y’all know that all my tablescapes begin with inspiration from recent finds. Here are a few items that I’ve found recently that inspired this Promise of Spring Tablescape.

First, this gorgeous round crochet table cloth is an almost perfect match for the larger crochet tablecloth I found last fall while thrifting. I was so lucky to find it, along with some handmade napkins, in a friends booth at Vintage Cottage.

I couldn’t wait to pair them together and create a tablescape with them.

This week on Thrifting with the Gals Thursday, I found this adorable antique covered dish at Goodwill.

Note: You will see more Thrifting with the Gals finds and how we use them on Thursday!


A Promise Of Spring Tablescape Details

In addition to recent finds, here are a few items that I felt would be perfect for this romantic table.

These antique brass birds are actually salt and pepper shakers that belonged to my husbands grandmother. I use them often on the table because they are a favorite of mine.

Here is how I created the simple centerpiece. First, I HAD to use the vintage serving dish on the table. It was just to perfect with the tablecloths. So I surrounded the antique dish with three vintage brass candlesticks and filled it with an Angel Vine Plant. Lastly, I added the sweet bird salt & pepper shakers to complete the centerpiece vignette.

More Vintage PIeces

Here you see the vintage dishes that I found back in the summer. I love combining them with vintage flatware and these cute handmade napkins with cute embroidered flowers & crochet corners.

Promise of Spring Accessories

To complete the spring like feeling, I added a sap bucket filled with forced forsythia stems and “Faith”! Faith is one of my favorite paintings to display this time of year. She is a sweet reminder of the coming Spring and I do have prints available in my store.

See how to Force Blooms on this post.

Round Table

I choose to use a round table instead of the normal oval, in order to create a cozy, romantic feel. This dining table has seen many transformations, but I’ve never been able to part with it. It was one of our first purchases as newly weds.

Hi Rachel. Your TABLESCAPE is a promise spring will come. So lovely. I have to keep reminding myself all this rain is feeding our plants and snow is known as God's fertilizer.

This is the most beautiful tablescape Rachel and does give me hope for spring. I love all the elements you included but I think the round crochet tablecloth is my very favorite! And of course the pop of greenery finishes off the entire table. Loved hopping with you today!
