Spring Tablescape Inspiration & Styling Tips

Photos by Camille Styles

I haven’t shared some inspirational photos in a while, so as I prepare for a range of outdoor photoshoots, I wanted to show you guys some of the beautiful work I came across in the process. Everyone asks me where I get inspired for my own tablescapes, and my answer totally ranges. Sometimes I am inspired by a single floral arrangement, and other times, a unique detail {for example, how cute are the “apple placards” in the next photo!}. I will say that I am constantly pinning photos on my Pinterest boards and often times printing them out to have on hand as I head to my local flower shop! So this Spring, I have noticed some commonalities across my favorite tables and I wanted to share my notes with those you also planning something special… here they are:

  1. It’s time to embrace woods and natural surfaces of outdoor tables rather than hiding them under tablecloths. Table runners however, placed down the center, are making a come back!
  2. Incorporate natural elements into each place setting, whether you place a sprig of rosemary or a single flower over top a napkin, or use a piece of fruit as your place card holder.
  3. Create a centerpiece of flowers and candles… especially for parties that start in the late afternoon and transition to evening. The candle light is so romantic!
  4. When it comes to creating or buying flower arrangements, think romantic, whimsical, and bright. Arrangements should look loose and a bit unkept, as if you picked them in the garden and threw them in a vase.
  5. Also on the topic of flowers, choosing several smaller/tighter/lower arrangements spread across the length of the table is preferred, say goodbye to one large arrangement in the center.
