Spring Dining Room Table Decor Ideas

When you’ve got people coming over for the holidays—Easter, Passover, Mother’s Day—you’ll want to level up your usual white plates and plain glasses. Layering in soft pastels, patterns and textures—via your table runners, napkins, tablecloths, and other accessories—is the easiest way to get your table dressed up for spring.

Add Some Yellow

Bring a bunch of lemons to round out your everyday plates, flatware and wineglasses.

A handful of lemons + some sprigs of greenery = the budget-friendliest centerpiece.

This bunny vase will be a conversation starter at Easter, but you can use it year-round—without flowers in its ears—as a decor accent on a bookshelf or side table.

Go for Blue

Blend some blues in with your workhorse water glasses, flatware and salad plates.

For a fast and functional centerpiece, place some potted herbs on the lazy Susan and guests can garnish to taste.

Leather strips instead of napkin rings adds a boho touch. Buy a few yards of leather lacing at the craft store, cut into 12-inch lengths, and tie around folded napkins.

Add a Pop of Pink

Layer lots of pink in with your go-to dinner plates, flatware and wineglasses.

There’s no need for a big, fussy centerpiece. Small bunches of spray roses and tulips are all you need. 

A loose knot—not a napkin ring—on a white napkin adds a sculptural element to your setting.
