I just love a big blue sky with the sun shining.
After a wet and gray West Coast Winter, it always does my heart good when that sun starts to peek its face out more often!
Perhaps that’s why yellow and blue has always been one my favorite color combinations?
It was the inspiration this Spring tablescape idea. It would work perfectly for Easter, Mother’s Day, or any other special celebration in Spring.

How to make a quick & simple 5 minute Spring centerpiece
I often start a tablescape plan by thinking of a centerpiece. This one is super quick and easy.
Here’s the supplies you’ll need:
- A galvanized metal flower box (I found mine at a thrift store, but here’s something similar)
- 2 bunches of faux wispy greenery (here’s some similar)
- 2 pots of faux greenery (I got mine at Ikea, but here are some similar)
- 1 bunch of faux yellow forsythia (a similar option here)
- 1 small bunch of faux yellow flowers (These are cute!)
- 1 small bunch of faux lime green flowers (These would be gorgeous!)
- 2 shallow bowls
**Please note: Although I’ve linked online shopping to all the supplies above, I personally found mine at a thrift store, Ikea, and Micheals Craft stores. If those options are available for you, too, the price of this centerpiece could be very low!
How to assemble the Spring centerpiece
Start by putting the 2 bushes of greenery on either end of the galvanized metal flower box.
Place the 2 bowls upside down inside the flower box to give the potted plants extra height.
Set the 2 pots of faux greenery on the bowls.
Cut apart the faux greenery so each flower is on an individual stem. Intersperse the flowers throughout the greenery.
I like to always work from one side to the other when placing flowers. If I put one on the left side, I put one on the right, etc.
Setting a Spring Tablescape – Layer, layer, layer!
Since the color yellow was the inspiration for this tablescape, I started with a yellow striped farmhouse style tablecloth.
In experimenting with various options, I found that layering a dark gray contrasting color provided more interest and excitement – plus made the cheery yellow and Spring green pop.
Dark gray striped and checked tea towels were laid under each placesetting with a gray checked runner down the center.

Make the place settings special
Whenever I’m attending a dinner party where special care has been placed on the details of the place setting, it makes me feel cared for!
I wanted to create something similar with this Spring tablescape place setting. It could be used for Easter, Mother’s Day, or a Spring birthday celebration.
On the top of the layered placemat and woven charger, the cherry on the place setting top is an individual pot of faux grass with a place card set inside. I had difficulty finding any mini faux grass pots online that weren’t really expensive! Look in your local Dollar Stores or craft stores for much less expensive options…
Those beautiful blue linen napkins and blue egg decor stems were a thrift store find. You can see how I created an entire tablescape in this 5$ Goodwill Tablescape post.
I created a printable place card sheet available in my VIP printables library, so readers can print it off and use it for their Spring tablescapes, too.

Add in extra pops of Spring themed decor and greenery
Alongside the centerpiece, I scattered a few more faux greenery pieces, a fun pink bike, and some faux moss rocks.
Look in your decor stash closet to see what kind of Spring themed decor you may have that you forgot about.
