Spring Tablescape

Now, I'm not a professional like or or
or but I do enjoy setting a lovely table and try to change with the seasons as much as I can. I change my table decor so often, I'm not even really sure what my "normal" / everyday centerpiece is.

Last year was the first time I tried to do a Spring theme. I wanted to start decorating right after Valentine's Day and it needed to be something that would stay appropriate until I changed over to my beach/summer tablescape. I knew I didn't want an Easter theme and I had seen some beautiful shabby chic/earthy/natural schemes I wanted to duplicate. I wanted it to be very natural, very green, kind of rustic. I wanted topiaries, succulents and nature accents. I wanted it to feel like you were dining al fresco. Here are a few photo inspirations:

I love doing the same themes over and over because I always add new pieces, move things around, try a different use for an item, etc. I like when the table sort of evolves and everything just falls into place. So now here's my finished version:

The crock in this photo is actually from a line of candles we carry in the gift shop at work and the burlap table runner was an Etsy find.
I love these Gail Pittman plates and am always on the look-out for pieces on e-Bay.

The birdcage candle holder and butterfly print are new this year and the plate with the bird's nest on it is an Earthborn piece made locally in Alabama

The choche is new as well and has a cute little snail sitting on top.
