Simple Country Spring Table

Today’s simple spring table is based on two country metal trays and salad plates I bought at Cracker Barrel in February.  The trays are handy not only as trays but as centerpieces displaying vignettes and today’s chargers.







I added simple white plates and my new barnyard animal salad plates.


Place setting started with metal tray, topped with white plate, and then a barnyard rooster salad plate



The napkins are in my rustic napkin rings I made last spring. The cutlery are in a burlap and lace holder to complete the simple country place setting.






For the last month I’ve enjoyed the Amaryllis in the neighborhood.  Many of the early varieties were through blooming by April, but the late varieties like mine still have a few blooms to go.  Amaryllis make a beautiful flower for a spring bouquet. Similar to lilies, the blooms most commonly come in multiple shades of deep red, pink, white, and a candy-stripe pink and white.  Yellows and blues are also available but not seen often here in my neighborhood.







The blooms seem to last longer cut in a vase than on the plant.  I bought a small pink, red, and purple bouquet at Aldi and added red and pastel variegated Amaryllis.







The flowers are the star of my spring country table.  The vase sits on a woven place mat; I do love adding texture to my tables.






The corner stand has my new orchid displayed.






In front of my bouquet is a small glass vase with a few blooms.

I hope you enjoyed my simple country table for spring.







Thanks for visiting!

  1. How pretty. I love that you use a variety of textures in your design. It is consistent but also adds an element of depth. That makes it pop when you take the photos. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

  2. What a pretty table! The barnyard animal salad plates are super cute and I love the way you arranged the cutlery.

    1. Yes forced amaryllis are beautiful for Christmas – I’m amazed they bloom a 2nd time for you in the summer! You must a green thumb.

  3. The plates with the animals are so fun! You will go in history for your love of flowers, Carol! You have a knack for decorating – thanks you for sharing it with All Seasons! Wishing you a wonderful week!

  4. Oh this looks wonderful Carol! I love the country setting. I have just finished doing our kitchen out with a country theme.

    Thanks for sharing with #MMBC. Have a good week. x

  5. Your table is so pretty! I need to get out to our Cracker Barrel — haven’t been there in awhile and while the food can be a bit much, I love the shop!

    1. They do have the cutest things, but I don’t like most of the prices. The trays and salad plates were on sale which is my kind of treat.

  6. Lovely – I was particularly drawn to the burlap and lace cutlery holders! We have now moved into our house (as of Saturday) and I am starting to turn my attention to decorating (very slowly). Burlap will certainly have a role; it is such a versatile material, don’t you think? Thanks for the inspiration today.

    1. Yeah! You’re in the house. Can’t wait to see more photos in the future as you live your life.

  7. Beautiful table! Thank you so much for sharing. I wish I was this creative my table settings. Glad to have found your post through Paula’s Weekend Blog Party! 🙂

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
