An Easy and Eclectic Spring Tablescape with Succulents and Fresh Blooms
with decorating tips!
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 global eclectic look for your spring table:
Break up sets and types of plates by mixing colors and patterns.
The spring table settings are made up of white IKEA plates with bamboo salad plates (from Japan) and cabbage leaf plates. The trio sits on top of a woven charger and is topped with a faux succulent.
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.
Add interest with more than one centerpiece.
Wrap flowers in cabbage or other leafy vegetable for a pretty arrangement. Nothing is easier or cheaper than shopping your house for other fun details. You can find faux air plants and succulents all over our rental so adding them to the table was a breeze.
The funny thing about buying flowers at the local market in Japan is that I’m not sure what these are? Peonies or ranunculus? (Thank you friends for naming them!)
The colored Okinawan glass tumblers and thrifted gold bamboo serving ware 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.
