{spring table + rose napkin fold}

In celebration of March, today I’m sharing my Spring table setting.  Setting a pretty table has become one of my favorite seasonal projects.  Simple + clean.  Lots of white.  And it’s always fun to shop my own house for different pieces to finish the table off.
A set table makes the home feel so welcoming.
And nothing sets the Spring tone like a bright cheery room.
Keep scrolling to check out all the details…..

Bay even helped me with this one too!  I’m rubbing off on her…Ha!
She rolled all the rose napkins.  Perfectly.  She knows how I roll….lol.

Farmers Market flowers were my favorite find last Saturday.  Super unique.
Once these begin to wilt, I’ll probably grab a couple of bunches of eucalyptus to replace it.

Fresh rosemary + thyme tied with bakers twine.  As soon as the candle was lit, I could smell the fresh herbs.  Such a fun touch.  The thyme wilts quickly.  If you decide to try this at home.  Either stick with rosemary for a longer lasting look.  Or do this the day of, if you’re having peeps over.  Either way, I love using anything fresh I can get my hands on.  I have rosemary planted out back.  Fresh thyme was leftover from a recipe.  I also love using up things I already have in the fridge.

I wanted a layered look without chargers or extra on the table.  I bought this plate set at Walmart yearrrrsss ago.  It’s from the Better Homes and Garden collection.  Which is still available.  I have 2 sets making an 8 piece place setting.  They are great quality and don’t have a single chip.

This white porcelain vase.  It’s actually a utensil holder.  I bought it a while back and pulled it out of the cupboard and it worked perfectly.  Also cheaper than a vase.  Coming in at $9!

This table runner was one thing I was hesitant about.  Pink?  I continued to pick it up every time I went in-store.  Finally reduced to $11 and I took a chance.
Instead of plain white napkins, I tied to pull the grey-ish tones from the runner by pairing with grey napkins.

Brought to you by, the one, the only…..Bay

1. Lay a square linen napkin flat.  Notice the wrinkles, this one has been practiced with.  Best part of the rose fold…no ironing needed!  Whoop Whoop!

2. Fold the napkin diagonally in half to form a triangle.

3. Begin rolling the napkin.  Leaving about 1/3 of the napkin unrolled.

5. When your done rolling, tightly tuck the free end into the little pocket.

Bay is currently folding any and every napkin she gets her hands on into roses.  She left our table at Maria’s Cantina full of napkin roses.  The servers are always impressed.  They have no idea how easy it is.

Let your kiddos give it a try and help set the table.  It’s made Bay want to set the table for me any + every time I ask 🙂

 

Next up, Bay is practicing her bunny ear fold for our Easter table ♥

 

Hope we inspire you to set a pretty table to welcome Spring!
