Spring Green in the Kitchen

Welcome to Spring in the Kitchen!


Let me share what I have done to spruce up my kitchen table with spring greens.


I learned many years ago...from a designer and design instructor...that any shade of green goes with any other shade of green. It is an imitation of nature. This gave me confidence to use the various shades of green together over the years. 

I love to tinker with my decorative items and recreate new table arrangements. 

And here is a look at my spring green table. With an empty nest most of the time...there are just the two of us. This lets me play and create more tablescapes. 

When we had our children at home the kitchen table was used for homework as well as craft projects. 

Ok, on to my table setup. I have had this French wire basket for years. It has had many different fillers and been in many locations.

Most of my table arrangements are fairly simple. But I do like to mix and mingle my accessories in new ways. Just being creative. 

I love to invent new looks without buying anything! I have enough "stuff"... and these days I like to use what I have. That seems to be a trend with others also. :-) Work your creativity!

Simple Monochromatic Tablescape

I went with a monochromatic color scheme for this table arrangement. Green on green on green. 

I went to my "stash" and began pulling out green accessories. Green is almost a neutral in my house. Green works in every season!


My everyday china is ivory Italian Countryside...and works with any color scheme I use on the table. 



I created this centerpiece by beginning with a wire bowl I have had for years. You can use any bowl that you have. I put floral moss in the bottom of the bowl, then I added some faux boxwood balls and artichokes. Easy. Easy.

I need to find some cute birds eggs for my miniature bird's nest.




I hope my spring table arrangement gives you some ideas to use at your house. Keeping things simple and monochromatic works!


Thanks for Visiting.
