Set the scene for a fresh new season with this Spring table decor using thrift store finds. No one will guess that you are decorating on a budget!
This project was motivated by Hillary from Old World Home. Each season, she invites participants to join in a $5 Goodwill Challenge.
The instructions are to purchase something at a thrift store or garage sale, and then use it somehow in the current season’s decor.
I had so much fun shopping for the “perfect items”. A few things caught my eye that eventually became the inspiration for some Spring table decor.
How to decorate for the season with Spring Table Decor from the Thrift Store
Find something that will be the inspiration for the start of the Spring Table decor
In this case, a floral pick with baby blue eggs and some aqua linen napkins were the starting point.
Use items you already have in your house that will coordinate with your new Spring decor thrift store finds.
I pulled out all kinds of pretty things from my closets and drawers and came up with a “Pottery Barn meets Anthropology” Spring table look.
An embroidered linen tablecloth, mixed print china plates, and my Grandma’s doily add in a touch of vintage and pattern in this budget friendly Spring table.
The floral picks from the thrift store had cute little nests that were perfect to put on top of each Spring table setting. A few tiny eggs were also snipped off the picks and put inside.
A Spring Table Centerpiece
A tiered aqua tray (that I got at my clearance sale haul at Homesense) fit perfectly on a vintage cake platter and provided a centerpiece with height.
I wove the wires of the floral picks into each of the trays and around the base of the cake stand.
I just love the sparkly aqua eggs mixed with the white silk flowers.
A little wood slice is the perfect perch for miniature bud vases to set beside each place setting.
Thank you, Hillary, for encouraging me to get thrifting and be creative. I had so much fun putting this together!
