On the menu today is beautiful and bright tabletops sure to bring a sunny smile to your face! I don’t know about you, but I have been STARVING for new tabletop goodies to play with and I am so happy that it is finally that time of year! Although it hasn’t been feeling like Spring these last few weeks, it is on its way. Easter is only a little over a month away! While February always feels like the longest month of the year, it will be over before we know it. This doesn’t allow much prep time for a new season, so I love to get a head start on bringing new displays to our dining areas. There are a few easy additions to freshening up your tables this month and start spring off on the right foot!
Festive Figurines. At Nell Hill’s we love statue and figurines on a tabletop! From bunnies in all sizes to Easter eggs and colorful ceramic birdies, there is no limit to the fun you can have with figurines. We like to pair various sizes in the middle of a table to create a beautiful and easy to arrange centerpiece that can last through Easter. Another way to pump up volume and interest to a statue is by adding a little flair! We love to use faux florals, ribbons and Easter eggs tied in a bouquet bundle around our bunnies for extra “oomph”. In the example shown here, we selected an oversized piece for visual impact in the shop. You can certainly scale down the components for your home to create a more conversation-friendly centerpiece.
Color Pop. What better way to add energy to your dining room than with a burst of color? If one color is good then a rainbow of colors is great, right?! At Nell Hill’s, our visual team is always playing with new hues and we aren’t afraid to mix and match, and neither should you. Punchy greens, vibrant orange and pretty plum come together to mimic the beautiful shades you find in our centerpiece arrangement, creating a harmonious display that’s just the right amount of busy. This festive floral display proves a well-balanced table doesn’t have to be a boring one!
Complementary Creation. Blue and orange is one of our favorite pairings at the shop, and we have already done it a few different ways this year! We love our classic blue and white year-round and a splash of orange is a great way to incorporate a springy hue into the mix. This blue and orange tabletop was created with the playful chair textile in mind. We love to mix different complementary patterns and colors together to create an interesting and dynamic tablescape. Small decorative plates are a fantastic addition to formal dishes if you want to make a dressy table more approachable for day-to-day use or a more casual event.
A few new accessories are still waiting in the wings just begging to be tossed into the mix (gently, of course), like the gorgeous floral platters and Easter egg inspired salt and pepper shakers we have online (so fun!). With new goodies coming in every week, our tables are sure to be changing throughout the season! Follow us on social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest so you don’t miss one of the amazing displays we will be sharing in the upcoming days and weeks! Until next time – happy decorating!
