DIY Spring Table Setting
Spring is here and that means it is time to start spending time outside with your friends and family. Hi everyone! It’s Kara of A Kailo Chic Life and I am going to show you how to celebrate the warmer weather of spring outdoors with a colorful spring table setting. I love color and spring is a great time to introduce some bright colors into your decor. Luckily Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores have all the supplies you need to create a colorful and airy spring table setting.
Today I will share with you a few ways to recreate this table setting for your own spring soiree. First up, you need your tablecloth. I decided to DIY mine using 3 yards each of coral and mint fabrics and 3 yards of gold trim from Jo-Ann (which is regularly $6.99 per yard).
As you can see the tablecloth that I made has an asymmetrical color blocked look. To recreate this, you will want to lay your two fabrics on top of the table that you want your tablecloth to be used on, and make sure that they overlap a bit but that there is still enough over hang (about 6″) on each side. Then fold the top fabric under to create an asymmetrical seam and pin the top fabric to the bottom fabric. Now top stitch this seam and then turn the fabric over and cut away the excess fabric. Next, sew a simple fold-over hem on each of the four sides of the table cloth. Finally iron the table cloth and then use fabric glue to attach the gold trim to the asymmetrical seam for a special gold touch.
Another simple addition to this spring table is the hanging floral chandelier. While it has major visual impact, it is really quite simple to create. Begin by spray painting a large wreath frame gold. Then use small rubber bands to wrap around and attach the faux flower stems to the wreath frame with the end of the stem pointing up and the flower pointing down. Use fishing line to hang the chandelier from pre-strung outdoor lighting or from your ceiling or light fixture if using indoors.
Now that you have your base, simply add your plates, napkins, silverware, and glasses. I made these polka dot plates by using ceramic food safe paint pens on plain white plates. How fun!
For the centerpiece of the table, I used two gold terrarium vases from The Bloom Room and filled them simply with two large faux flowers each.
The rest of the table features crafted candle holders, mini succulent planters and marble dessert stands from plastic Easter eggs! As well as a few extra Easter eggs and little bunny vase with faux grass and flowers.
These little bunny vases are also a DIY made from cardboard bunnies found at Jo-Ann. How cute!
This colorfully crafted spring table will have all your party or dinner guests ooh-ing and ahh-ing and when you tell them you made everything on it, well, they will probably hire you to come decorate their house! And there is definitely no denying that spring is here on this table.
