Set your Spring Table
The arrival of Spring means more Al Fresco lunches in the garden. Set your table with beautiful flowers of the season.
Sunny yellow daffodills are the most popular spring-flowering bulbs and they fill a garden with the first splash of fresh colour. They're perfect for dressing up a spring table.
Pastel shades are always popular for a spring table setting, and what better way to introduce soft pastel shades than with roses in pale pinks, orange and lemon.
Pop your cut roses into crystal glasses, add a sprig or two of greenery and there you have it.
Nothing emulate Spring better than branches with spring flowers. Match them with other pastels to create the perfect look.
Of course, bold and bright colours celebrate spring as well, and what better way to display spring flowers and greenery than in colourful containers.
To add instant colour to your table, wrap assorted containers in wrapping paper or fabrics and embellish with ribbons, twine, cotton and braid.
There are some many gorgeous papers and fabrics that you could use. If you want something a bit more permanent, finish off with two or three coats of Mod Podge or clear acrylic sealer.
Add thin slices of lemon or orange to clear vases to punch up the colour. These dazzling yellow tulips are displayed in a clear, square vase with added lemon slices that add zesty colour to the table arrangement. Visit www.homedzine.co.za for more spring trends.
