No matter what the groundhog said, we say it’s time to wave good-bye to the winter blues and spring forward with the sunshine! We rotate our closets when the seasons shift, so why not do the same with our tabletops?
In the second of our tabletop trends series, we’ll share simple tips and fun ideas for making your tablescape bloom with spring style. We’ve also chosen four seasonally inspired Corelle dinnerware patterns that will bring a light, fresh look to your kitchen and dining table.
Fresh flowers and foliage effortlessly highlight the essence of spring. Create lively centerpieces with an array of your favorites popped into fuss-free mason jars or interestingly shaped wine and vinegar bottles. We love ferns and other airy, leafy greens for a cool and casual vibe, and the energetic hues of tulips and gerbera daisies for brightening up the table, but feel free to use whatever flowers make you think spring. Or spruce up your tablescape with a gorgeous floating garden centerpiece. Collect an assortment of fresh fruit and flowers and place them in clear vases, then fill with water and float tea light candles over the arrangements.
FRESHEN UP THE MENU

DO THEM A FAVOR
Setting your table for guests? Coat tiny terra-cotta pots with chalkboard paint, write each guest’s name on it and pop in a little plant. Using fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme will subtly scent your table, plus guests can take them home as party favors, then repot and enjoy the harvest all season long!
