Inexpensive grocery store flowers tucked into mason jars pair perfectly with neutral, everyday dishes and linens to create this simple, yet cheery Spring table setting.
In a time where everyday feels so much like the last, it’s the little things that can really make such a difference.
If you follow along with me on Instagram, you may have noticed a little #stayhomeandDIY challenge that I’ve been taking part in. Basically, each Wednesday I team up with a group of friends on Instagram to create around a specific theme, all from the comfort of home. Not only is it a great way to check in with a calendar once a week, but I can’t tell you how amazing it’s been to have a reason to create, especially with such a talented group of friends.
Last week, we all put together a tablescape. I have to say, of all our weekly themes so far, this one in particular was such a reach for me – not because I couldn’t dig up an inspiration, but because it felt so pointless with everything going on lately. I mean what was the point in creating a pretty tablescape when we couldn’t have anyone over to enjoy it with us?
But then I came across the most cheery looking flowers on my weekly trip to the grocery store that morning. As I stood there in front of a wall of the prettiest Spring flowers, I found myself thinking that even if nobody saw them but our little family, the happiness that they would evoke for us each and every time our eyes passed over them was reason enough to bring them home with me.
At home, as I unpacked all of my groceries, I found myself wondering why these flowers were worth bringing home, worth arranging around the house just for our own enjoyment, but a simple little tablescape wasn’t? And so, in these inexpensive grocery store flowers, I found my inspiration.
I pulled out some table linens, collected a few candles and divided my flowers into mason jars.
I laid out a pretty gingham table cloth and scattered my flowers and a collection of candles down the centre of my table. I placed our regular old everyday dishes over my favourite placemats, placed some simple linen napkins on top and finished it off with a setting of cutlery tied with a pretty silk ribbon.
It took just a few minutes, but it all came together to create a cheery little tablescape so perfect for Spring.
And sure, any extra fuss, even just the few extra minutes it took me to lay this all out, might seem pointless for a regular old Wednesday dinner for our little family, but it sure did make pizza night feel a little more special.
