Spring Fling

These festive tabletop ideas will help you spring into action.

Spring flowers add to this tabletop.

First, set the stage by making a trip to your local florist for some springlike blooms and plants. Not only will the flowers you select provide a fresh backdrop for your party, but they also can serve as your color palette for the accompanying projects.

Pressed and Ready

Mix and match flowers for this colorful setting.

Flower blooms, petals, and leaves -- pressed between two clear dessert plates -- make an attractive place setting. Use delicate flowers that are easy to press, such as pansies or violets (if young children are attending, edible flowers are the safest option). Beneath the pair of clear plates use pastel plates to fit the spring color scheme. Choose dinnerware without a pattern, so it won't compete with the flowers.

Cute as a Button

Use napkins that match your color scheme.

Dress up plain white cotton napkins with pretty buttons sewn in the corner. Then roll the napkins with the buttons face up, and secure with ribbon, cued to your color scheme. Tie the ribbon in a bow or thread through a mother-of-pearl buckle. The buckles shown here are antiques, but you can find new versions in the doll section of a crafts store.


Put favorite herbal scents in this decorative holder.

During the Victorian Era, people sent messages of friendship, love, and good health with tussie-mussies. They were most often made with herbs. You can convey welcome by tying a small arrangement to the back of each guest's chair. These bunches are Stephanotis and Forsythia clumped together with florist's tape. Insert the bunches into cones made from heavy art paper. Pretty buttons glued along the seams of the cones match the buttons on the napkins.

Silverware Seed Packets

Decorate the holders to match your party's colors or theme.

Corral silverware with paper folded and decorated like fanciful seed packets. Real ones would work, too, but these are more fun. Torn tissue paper forms the flowers.
