As we designed this tablescape, along with complementary spring dining room decor, it eventually became clear that there was a common theme running through several components: a circular shape. Circles represent a sense of unity, a feeling of togetherness. This simple shape also symbolizes timelessness, indicating the cyclical nature of life. We couldn’t help but feel chills as we took a step back and gazed at our creation. As with so many of our designs, we end up encapsulating deeper themes that run through our own personal lives, bringing our outward and inward lives back to one another, full circle.

Easy Spring Dining Room Decor
This spring, we wanted to achieve an organic aesthetic for our tablescape, so we went with whimsical florals in neutrals and soft blushes and a natural placement of a table throw. To incorporate the circular theme (not that we were totally aware we were doing it at the time!), we place the floral arrangement into our shallow, round cement planter as a texturized foundation.
To bring in some warmth, our candle selection included our Mocha Taper Candles, along with 5″ and 10″ Pleated Tapers for added visual interest and a completed look. These candles not only cast an inviting glow around the table when lit, they’re also smokeless and dripless, making them an ideal component for a hassle-free tablescape design.
The Place Setting
With simplicity in mind, our place setting features soft shades of white, along with our Brushed Gold Flatware for just a touch of elegance. (Gold flatware is an entertaining essential we love! It’s a timeless finish and lends a sophisticated aesthetic for special occasions, no matter the time of year.)
Since we paired this tablescape with a soup and salad combo, we chose our Matte Chalk Dinner Plate, as a foundational charger, along with our Matte Chalk Soup and Salad Bowl. For an understated yet elevated look, we chose our Fluted Tumblers for a subtle note of extra visual interest.
Finally, to complete the look, we selected our Cream Fringe Dinner Napkins and folded them in a simple square shape to keep the attention on the more elaborate floral arrangement in our centerpiece.

The Decorative Serveware
Choosing to serve food and beverages in serveware versus plating and setting at each place setting allows you and your guests to engage in a communal experience. Passing bowls and pitchers from person to person encourages social interaction and provides an intimate experience while gathering around the table. So, if you’re seeking to deepen your relationships, something as simple as a serving bowl and a pitcher set on your table can help make that a reality.
You might notice the symbolic circular designs again when looking at our serveware choices below. Our new Speckled Cream Stoneware Serving Bowls offer an organic aesthetic while our shapely Colin Carafe is nestled in a shallow Gray Cement Planter for a unique look and added visual interest. Finally, we paired our serving bowl with our Acacia Wood Tongs for easy handling and functionality as guests help themselves to a hearty and delicious cucumber salad.
Spring Dining Room Decor: Beyond the Table
When decorating your dining room this spring, consider more than just the table. Take a step back and look around: what other surfaces are there? Consider clearing off your buffet, shelves and whatever else fills this space and start fresh for a new season. (Donate, pass down, or put into storage anything you remove instead of tossing to create space in a responsible, eco-friendly way.) We recommend choosing items that have a mixture of functionality and sentimentality. In other words, choose pieces that either serve a purpose or brings happiness to your heart – or even better, both!
By starting fresh this spring, you’ll notice that you’re able to clear off a lot of what was filling your surface space. The effect? Clearer mind and a more open heart.
In other words: create space for what matters most this spring.
