Spring Table Setting Ideas


Ready for spring? Start by refreshing your table with crisp linens, potted blooms, and a pop of bright color. In Barbados we don't experience seasons really, for the most part it's consistently sunny with a rainy reason however it is still nice to change up your decor and spring is the perfect time to do it. House Beautiful put together a stunning array of Spring Tabletops full of decor inspiration.  For Tory Burch, setting the table can be the most creative outlet of all. "Just try different things," she says. "Patterns you wouldn't think to put together can surprise you, and look great."





Pretty in pink and green, a combo synonymous with Palm Beach, the table, designed by Mimi McMakin, is dressed with china, crystal, flatware, and linens from Mary Mahoney.


Textile designer Michael Devine conjures a romantic, swoon-worthy alfresco fete. "To complement the floral arrangements, I chose crisp yellow-and-white table runners in my Chantal fabric," he says. "Vintage blue-and-white chinoiserie-pattern dinnerware was paired with napkins tied with striped ribbon." He wired fanciful faux butterflies into the arrangements, making them appear to be fluttering throughout the Queen Anne's lace. 
For an outdoor lunch, designer Miles Redd — a Pisces — draws inspiration from the sea, filling his table with glimmering objects and watery hues. "The table has an iridescent quality — like the inside of a seashell. Light dances, which gives the eye a lot to play upon and makes the whole dining experience so exciting."
