Farmhouse Spring Tablescape {It’s All Set}

Spring is one of my very favorite seasons in Texas.  Yes, we do have a lot of storms this time of year, but the mild temperatures, the sunshine and the gorgeous Spring flowers take center stage.

It’s the time of the year when we really enjoy dining outdoors on our back porch because it’s not too hot outside yet. 

When it’s just the four of us, we are pretty casual and use whatever plate we want and eat buffet style.  We just dish it up indoors and take it outside to enjoy the weather and the pool side view. 

But, when friends come over, I fancy it up a bit and try to make it feel a little extra special.

I love the casual and comfortable beauty of farmhouse style dining, so I thought I would put together a farmhouse Spring tablescape.   This setting is perfect for a special lunch with friends, don’t you think?

I don’t have a real farmhouse table outside so I just spread an old tattered quilt on top of what I have to give it that rustic appeal.

I didn’t create a fancy center piece either.  I simply used what sits out here every day — two pots of ivy resting in a galvanized tray that’s getting naturally rusty from the elements.  I love it’s simplicity.

I added two glass hurricanes that protect the candles from the wind and the first layer was set!

The place settings are so simple, and extremely inexpensive. 

The white plates are from IKEA and the mix and match blue and white plates are thrift store finds!

The vintage silverware came from my grandma.

The finishing touch is a few sprigs of rosemary from my garden tied together with a gingham ribbon.

I love the blue and orange together with the fresh rosemary.

The table is all set for a relaxed afternoon with best friends!

    Beautiful table, Julie! There is nothing that beats a blue and white table, it is so fresh and crisp. I ♥ the rosemary sprig tucked into that bitty touch of orange…blue and orange pair so well.
