| |

Try a beautiful blue and white table setting with global touches using second hand decor for a cheerful Spring or Easter gathering.

I am so excited to share not only a Spring blue and white tablescape with you today but a few updates in our dining room and kitchen. Welcome back to A Very Global Easter series with Casa Watkins Living and Up to Date Interiors!

This annual series features seven days of globally inspired Easter DIYs and decor. You can find all of them on A Very Global Easter page and we would also love for you to join our Very Global Home Facebook community.

I decided to do something a little unusual for a tablecloth on my table. Meet the table throw! This is a perfect and easy DIY for using leftover fabric without sewing and adding an interesting layer to your table.

Trim the sides of a fabric remnant with pinking shears or use iron-on hemming tape for an even cleaner line. Safety pin a tassel to each corner so you can remove them before washing it.

I used leftover upholstery weight fabric from my bedroom makeover that features a beautiful light blue and white shibori pattern. Shibori is a Japanese dying technique and goes along perfectly with all of my Japanese-inspired Easter ideas this week. The orange tassels were leftover from some curtain trim that I used in my office.

How to Set a Blue and White Tablescape with a Floral and Brass Centerpiece

First, iron and layout a blue and white table throw placing it at an angle. Use blue and white napkins and dishes with pops of mixed metallics.

Blue and White Dishes with Pops of Copper

Since the recent winter storm completely froze our garden I invested in a few “real feel” fower bouquets to use around the house. I stuck a few magnolia stems in second-hand copper champagne flutes (one stem in each glass), and arranged them with a couple of brass candle holders and white candles.

Each table place setting has a second-hand copper charger, my grandmother’s blue and white Danube china plate, new silverware with a hammered metal handle, blue and white cloth napkin, and blue colored tumbler from Okinawa, Japan.

Other Changes in the Dining and Kitchen

Just yesterday I decided to bring my floral curtains from the front room to my dining room and move the single floral roman shade from the dining room to the kitchen.

It instantly made the kitchen come to life and the window treatments are perfect Spring! Of course, now I need to find window treatments for my front window.

Last weekend I hit a few estate sales with a friend and we ended up at an antique mall where I found a pair of beautiful prints and a gorgeous landscape oil painting for over our fireplace mantle.

Art Pints

The prints are by a famous artist named Reginald Marsh. After doing a little research I discovered they were the real deal and published by Whitney Museum in New York City in a limited edition. I only paid $35 for each and they are beautifully framed. They are such a great score!

The black and gold frames with the black and white prints look so chic between my DIY cane cabinet and the floral curtains. The landscape wall mural on the other side mimics the new landscape on the fireplace mantle. It was obviously meant to be! 😉

I’ll share more of our home in a spring tour at the end of the week.

And here is one more view which shows just how small our open layout living, dining, and kitchen area. But it’s enough space for the four of us. 😉 My daughter does her remote learning at that desk so this is a real-life photo for you.
