Thank you for stopping by today! If you are new to MLT, I join my friends Cindy and Mary Ann every Sunday to share our favorite finds of the week. This lovely iron garland from Terrain is my number one favorite thing this week to set a nature-inspired spring table.
I am a big fan of using what you have but adding one new thing to inspire you! This beautiful daffodil garland was just the piece to get me started.
The Elements of a Nature-Inspired Spring Table
- Tablecloth – Natural linen in a warm color for spring
- Napkins – Linen blend from Terrain
- Candles – Natural beeswax candles are the perfect warm gold for a spring table.
- Stoneware in off-white for a more naturally inspired table from Garnet Hill
- A mix of glassware – Ikea glasses in gold, Picardie tumblers, and small French glasses
- Wine bottles with labels removed to serve still and sparkling water on small metal coasters at the end of the table
- The floral iron garland inspired the whole look and feel of this casual, slightly rustic tablescape.
Flowers for a Nature-Inspired Spring Table
Daffodils are just popping up in the garden here in the northeast. The little yellow flowers haven’t popped yet, but soon they will, and the bright yellow against the brown mulch and leftover leaves is always a welcome site!
I couldn’t find daffodils at the market today! I’ll have to show you my propagation wall turned flower wall display next week when the stores have buckets of them again.
Candles and linens
The rustic garland from Terrain has soft colors that give it an earthy feel to it. Perfect with a linen tablecloth and natural beeswax candles. I’m using my stoneware from Garnet Hill and a mix of casual glassware.
Using the Stick vases for a Nature-Inspired Table a Must!
I decided I needed to bring out my stick vases for real daffodils or chamomile that I buy at Trader Joe’s. Who can resist a little bundle of daffodils this time of year? Both are rather perfect with my natural-inspired spring table.
And now, on to my other favorite finds this week!
I have mentioned Comrad Compression Socks before, but I feel like it’s worth mentioning again since they are having a sale. When I first started wearing them, I wore them mainly for travel. I wore knee socks for long flights, which made a huge difference. Then I started wearing them for workouts and walking.
The current sale is 25% off on orders over $90, or use this code for 20% off any order if you want to try a couple of pairs.
Ever since working at the Serena & Lily flagship store in Westport, CT, I have loved everything this brand does from season to season! When I think they can’t possibly get better, they do! And right now, almost everything is 20% off with code: SPRING. You can find all my favorites that we have in our home right here in one place.
I particularly love this lamp from Serena & Lily. I would probably choose white, but I am drawn to the colors too! The warmth from a raffia shade is always perfect for warm and cozy light!
We love Copper!
Mary Ann sent me this photo yesterday! I love how she displayed her copper pots in her new kitchen! You can read more in her post here. The Libeco linen dish towel is from my shop. It is the Olympia dish towel, and I love how it looks with copper. It surprisingly works in almost every kitchen!
Still Jumping Rope Everyday!
I added jumping rope to my workout at the beginning of the year. Even when I don’t go to the gym, I jump rope at home! In the kitchen! When I first started, I could barely jump 10x without tripping and starting again. Now I am up to 80 jumps without stopping, and I recently noticed I’m far less winded than when I started. Trust me; it’s harder than it sounds! haha
