One of my favorite ways to usher in any given season is to switch up the tablescape in my formal dining room. In all honesty, we rarely entertain, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t decorate this space appropriately for spring. Our dining room is prominently located in the house and is very visible to anyone who might stop by for a visit and so I like to make sure it looks both festive and inviting. I think that this sage green and lavender spring table setting does just that.

I recently shared a far more simple and casual spring table idea. The centerpiece and place settings on that table could be thrown together in a matter of minutes. This sage green and lavender spring table is just a tad more formal and would require a bit more time to assemble, though even this one is quite simple and could be inexpensively replicated.
In creating this tablescape, I started with the centerpiece. I found the bunny figurines at Hobby Lobby. I bought two large bunnies and five smaller ones. If you look closely, you’ll notice that some of the bunnies are placed on a white ceramic cake or cupcake stands to give them variation in height.
Once I had the figurines placed, I started adding faux greens to mimic the look of a garden. You guys. It was SO easy, but it looks really ornate, right? The secret here was using a garland for the plush greenery effect. It was as simple as lying it on the table in a circular shape around the bunnies. From there, I added in a few picks of lavender for a pop of color.
I also wanted to include some super cute moss-covered eggs. I nested them into stacks of miniature grapevine wreaths so that they’d stand out from the greenery a bit. And to finish the centerpiece off, I enclosed the whole thing with natural grapevine ribbon.
I layered additional springs of coordinating greenery atop my table runners and used little white vases of lavender to define the borders of the tablescape with additional pops of color.
I opted to use neutrals for the place settings, starting with seagrass chargers and building from there with dinnerware that coordinates with the centerpiece.
Easily my favorite part of this sage green and lavender spring table is neither sage green or lavender. My absolute favorite detail is the decoupaged wooden eggs I made especially for this table. I’ve got a tutorial on that coming up soon.
The eggs are decoupaged with song lyrics from popular Easter hymns. Having grown up in the Lutheran church, I have a special affinity for old hymns. I love how they’re layered on so that you can’t necessarily recognize any lines but that they all overlap to paint a grander picture.
I’m super happy with how each element of this sage green and lavender spring table comes together. From the rustic bunnies in the centerpiece to the tangle of greens to the homemade eggs, all of it tells the story of Easter.
