An Easy Boho Tablescape

Well hello there!  Spring is officially here (whether it’s warmer or not) and I’m happy to be sharing an eclectic spring tablescape with you today.  You might remember the last tablescape blog hop hosted by Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate and I was really excited she asked us to share again!

If you are new here, a special hello.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would love it if you would leave me a comment so I can “meet” you!

I’ve been dreaming about the day I could share a beautiful tablescape in an actual dining room!  Our tatami room might not be a traditional space (unless you live in Japan) but we’ve been enjoying having a separate room to spend our meals together.

Here’s how to get the chic-boho look for your next table setting:

Break up sets and types of plates by mixing colors and patterns.

The table settings are made up of white IKEA plates with bamboo salad plates (from Japan) and thrifted cabbage leaf plates.  The trio sits on top of a woven charger and is topped with a faux succulent from the dollar store. 

Layer your table textiles (runners, tablecloths, and placemats) with globally influenced prints.  

When we were living in Okinawa I picked up a pretty silk pink table runner which I layered on top of an IKEA white lace curtain panel. You can achieve a similar look with scarves or a pretty craft or wrapping paper.

Add interest with more than one centerpiece. 

Wrap grocery-store flowers in cabbage or other leafy vegetables for a pretty arrangement.  Nothing is easier or cheaper than shopping your house for more fun details but if you can’t find anything, head to the dollar store for faux stems and succulents.

The colored Okinawan glass tumblers and thrifted gold bamboo flatware add more global interest and fun pops of color.  Bonus, all the pretty pinks and reds tie into our Wes Anderson inspired bookcase.

Quirky is okay!

 Strawberries garnished with faux succulents might be a little strange but they sure look pretty!

So just by breaking up sets and layering dishes and textiles you have the start to a gorgeous eclectic table!  Embellish with plants or other decor from around the house to add global style.

  6. Your tablescapes are always so fresh and unique and this one is no exception! Thank you so much for joining us again for this blog hop! I love your use of the little faux succulents, and those pink roses or are they ranunculus? I don’t think there is a thing strange about using the strawberries and faux succulents together! I am a big big believer in breaking rules when styling a table…actually, what are rules? I enjoy your fun tables and would love to dine at them!

  10. Hello Kathy,

    Nice to meet you. I am so happy to be here visiting your pretty blog for the fist time.

    I love your spring table. It is so pretty. I love the blush pink tones. It is clean, fresh and original. The cabbage leaf plates are beautiful as well as the gorgeous pink flowers on your table. The runner ties everything together.

    Looking forward to the blog hop this week.



    1. Nice to meet you Janet! Thanks so much for the sweet words. I really enjoyed putting the table together. Can’t wait for the next blog hop!

  11. Your lovely spring tablescape does have international appeal! Love the layering of the items you used to create a table runner and the individual succulents at each place setting are such a nice touch. Your floral centerpiece and the pretty little plates add fantastic colourful elements and look great. Happy Spring!

  12. Kathy, your peonies are gorgeous and I love the different colored plates and how you layered them. All those pink flowers speak to me. Great to be on the blog hop with you.

  13. I love this tablescape! I think what I love most about it is that it is unique and “clean”. I always set my dining room table and kitchen table with fun dishes and placemats, etc. but I haven’t taken the time to really do it fun since New Year’s. This has inspired me. And I wanted to tell you that I am new to your site. I found you on pinterest and fell in love with your site. I love decorating, organizing and decluttering. (Organizing almost to an obsession! hahaha). I work 4 days a week and my husband and I have two grown daughters who are finishing their doctorate and masters in May and next May. So we are empty nesters for all intense purposes and I am using my extra time to write, speak and run our non-profit for children in children’s hospitals. I also use my Fridays off to organize and decorate and just set goals and work towards them for a better organized, cleaner, fun-decorated home! I will use your site and ideas to incorporate and make that happen! Thank you and thank you for asking me to introduce myself. Your style is perfect for me!

    1. You must be one proud mama!

      It is fun to set a pretty table every once and awhile. I love that you have dedicated Fridays to organizing and decorating, would like to hear more about your non profit for children! I’m so happy to have you back!

  14. Your eclectic table is so pretty and the ranunculus/peonies wrapped in a cabbage leaf is gorgeous! I also love how you think out of the box by adding the faux succulents to the strawberries. Beautiful!

    1. Thanks Sandra! My thinking outside the box can get scary sometimes but glad you liked the succulents with strawberries. You just never know until you try, right?!? 🙂
