Tips for Stunning Spring Tables

Spring is the perfect season to refresh your table settings and create a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. With inspirations from Maison Fête et Cie's digital book "Art de La Table: Mastering the Art of Antique Table Styling," here are some tips to help you design an exquisite spring table.

1. Choose a Fresh Colour Palette

Spring is all about fresh, vibrant colours. Incorporate pastel hues like soft greens, yellows and pinks to evoke the season's natural beauty. Natural design motifs such as flowers or insects are a wonderful way to pay homage to the season's beauty, seamlessly blending nature with your table decor. Our antique hand-painted French faience dinner service set is a perfect example of spring style ceramics, embodying the vibrant and fresh feel of the season.


2. Incorporate Seasonal Flowers

Flowers are a quintessential element of any spring table. Opt for seasonal blooms like cow parsley, peonies, and orange blossom. Arrange them in vintage vases or simple glass jars to keep the look timeless and charming. The key is to balance the scale and colour of your floral arrangements with the rest of your table decor. Refer to Art De La Table part three for further information on floral arranging.

3. Mix Antique Elements

Combining varieties of antique tableware can create a unique and sophisticated look. Maison Fête et Cie offers a curated selection of antique tableware that can be paired together, or with your existing pieces. Blend various designs of silver cutlery to achieve and effortlessly chic look.

4. Pay Attention to Details

Details matter in creating a stunning table. Use linen napkins, elegant place cards, and thoughtfully chosen flatware. It is these small touches that elevate your table from ordinary to extraordinary. Consider adding personal touches like handwritten menus or customised napkins for an extra elevated feel.


5. Infuse Natural Elegance

Embrace the natural beauty of spring by incorporating elements that bring a touch of the outdoors to your table. Hand-embroidered linens add artisanal beauty and a connection to nature, while vintage French baskets can serve as charming centrepieces or bread holders, adding a rustic charm to your table. Pair these with pearl-handle knives to introduce a sophisticated flair. These elements enhance the natural feel of your table setting and create a seamless blend of functionality and aesthetics, perfect for a spring gathering.
