I think those elaborate tablescapes are totally gorgeous, but they just don’t really make a whole lot of sense for how we live.
So I keep the tablescapes pretty simple around here. I mean you need room on the table for food, yes?
Not to say I don’t swap out centerpieces or table runners pretty often around here, but that’s just because I love decorating. 🙂
Today’s tablescape is technically a spring post, but really, you could do this almost anytime!

Thanks to Kelly from North County Nest for hosting this week’s tablescapes hop – you can see all sorts of pretty (and easy!) tablescape ideas linked at the bottom of this post.
My mom (who’s apparently also my personal shopper when she’s not helping me with painting projects!) found this pretty table runner at Hobby Lobby. It’s *that* much too short for our farmhouse table (that I’m still amazed we built ourselves!!), but I loved it so I’m keeping it.
I went with our everyday dishes – green and white are perfect for spring anyway. (We love those white appetizer plates, by the way!) And some pretty paper napkins because, you know, keeping it easy!
Then I added a couple of candles to set the mood.
We’re obviously still in the process of building the benches for our table. You can see the design plans for the dining room makeover here – we’re getting there!
Does it take anyone else a million years to finish a room? Because that’s how this one is going!
I like swapping out the decor on the wine fridge, too when I switch up the centerpiece in here. I took this pitcher full of pink dried flowers from our Valentine’s Day centerpiece because I figure pink works for spring, too.
I looove that mix of marble and wood on the cake stand. If only someone would bring me a cake for it. 🙂
Here’s to easy table decorating (and room for delicious food)!
