A Simple Blue & White Spring Centerpiece

When decorating the home for spring, I've found that it is quite useful to keep things relatively simple, and draw inspiration from pieces I already have. Choosing an easy color-driven theme can instantly simplify the process, and incorporating pre-existing pieces from around the house certainly drives down the overall cost!

A blue and white themed centerpiece gives the spring table a look that is cheery and welcoming.  The statement is simple, clean and fresh.  Believe it or not, my inspiration for this centerpiece came from a stack of dishes!  I added other items from my home to complement it, and ended up with a very pleasant spring table.

It all started with some mismatched odds and end dishes that my mother-in-law gave me.  They were stacked together in my hutch, and I liked the freshness of the blue and white, as well as the mix of patterns.  I decided to make them the star of my spring table.

I began by stacking and layering the dishes down the center of a white tablecloth-covered table.  Then, I scouted my home for other blue items that I could add to the tablescape.  I placed a blue candle in the center of the table and slipped a little blueberry wreath over it. 

Next, I placed a clutch of robins' eggs in a mini glass bell jar cake stand that I had around the house.  A sweet little ceramic bunny nestled in comfortably amongst the dishes.  To tie all of it together, I added a length of blue and white striped satin ribbon, weaving it in and out of the dishes, down the length of the table.

For a cute extra touch, I embellished one of the stacked bowls by filling it with white paper shreds to make a perfect little nest for a pale blue robin's egg.

For my guests' party favors, I wrapped boxes of gourmet chocolates in a blue foiled paper and then tied them up with an organza ribbon and silk flower.  I slipped the elegant little favors in and around my blue and white "still life" down the center of the table.
