Colors: Leaf green and peony pink
Table Settings: Make the colors stand out by combining them in unexpected ways. When using white linens, you can use various shades of green and pink ribbons and napkins. For a garden feel, go for white chiavari chairs. You can also add cushions or sashes in green and pink.
Centerpieces: Create lush centerpieces with various shades of pink and greenery pieces.
Finishing Touch: Put fresh flowers in each napkin. For colored napkins, use contrasting or white-colored blooms.
Colors: The Robin’s egg blue and chocolate brown
Table Settings: Pair your linens with the chocolate brown color and add the blue subtly. Using this style for family-themed banquets will create a sophisticated ambience. You can also add Mason jars with coffee bean-anchored candles inside.
Centerpieces: Put three centerpieces on every table using unique containers such as branch baskets. For the largest centerpiece, choose the brown color using dried herbs or seedpods, for the middle size, use blue hydrangeas, and for the smallest, use white flowers.
Finishing Touch: You can put tiny bird’s nests containing blue Jordan almonds near each guest’s charger.
Colors: Celadon green and poppy orange
Table Settings: Create a modern combo design by using spring hues with dramatic contrast. Do the same with the décor by matching round and square tables and adding poppy orange blooms with neatly folded napkins. Use ivory and white linens to make the colors stand out.
Centerpieces: Alternate low and high centerpieces. Use bright green wheatgrass with daisies or anemones in orange color to design the low centerpiece. You can use stems of Mokara orchids in brilliant orange for the high centerpiece.
Finishing Touch: Create a pair of place cards in alternating colors of green and orange.
Colors: Butter yellow and pansy purple
Table Settings: Place vintage-inspired white overlay atop the butter yellow linens. Use antique patterns to complete the design.
Centerpieces: Choose classic spring flowers such as daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths that grow from pots. Alternate between mini-sized plants and full-sized versions and use three of the mini plants. You can also add the colors orange and pink to the yellow and purple hues to create a variation. Tell the guests that they can take home the flowers after the reception is finished.
Finishing Touch: Make use of vintage photos from old decorations and magazines for gardening, which can be found in antique stores.
Colors: Candlelight white and warm ivory
Table Settings: Use contrasting and rich textures for a wintry appeal. Adding metallic hue subtly is also a good idea.
Centerpieces: Include all shades of white. Springtime flowers like lilies, hyacinths, and French tulips can be used. Flowers with green hues like cabbage roses can add depth.
Finishing Touch: Let your tabletops glow using candles in white glass holders. Keep the whites warm to introduce the coming of the spring season.
