How to Pick Outdoor Table Decorations for Spring

Our Camelot Homes family enjoys entertaining year-round, but especially in the spring. Outdoor celebrations in spring call for eye-catching table decorations that enhance the look and design of the space. Let your imagination run wild from patio dining table centerpieces to side table décor for the outdoor sitting area.

This spring, consider some spring table decorations that are fresh and creative.

A Garden Variety

A blooming spring garden offers an array of gorgeous flowers and plants that are perfect for table decorations. The African daisy is ideal for bud vases with its sturdy stem and bright orange, red and yellow flowers. Begonias in your garden are also a great choice for table centerpieces, and can be enjoyed into the summer and fall. Place the cut flowers in a decorative bowl or planter for a simple décor.

Another option is individual succulents in small colorful pots that can be set in front of each place setting for a dinner party. Rosette succulents are ideal for our Arizona climate, and after your party they can be transplanted into your garden or sent home with your guests as party favors.

Unique Containers

It’s easy to place a colorful bouquet of fresh cut flowers in a favorite crystal vase for a quick table decoration. But if you want to be different, surprise your guests with something more unique. Look for unusual containers to use as spring table decorations filled with fresh flowers or herbal arrangements that also provide amazing fragrance.

The possibilities are endless, but some of our favorites include antique tins with fun graphics or old-fashioned designs, a colorful ceramic tea kettle, or apothecary bottles to hold individual buds or sprigs of rosemary. Arrange the apothecary bottles on an antique serving tray as the centerpiece. Another unique container is a vintage colander. Simply fill it with a bounty of succulents or your favorite flowers.

Edible Arrangements

Edible arrangements serve a dual purpose as spring table decorations. They are attractive and your guests can enjoy them as dessert or part of the meal. For a dinner party, use a trio of three-tier serving stands as centerpieces and trays for various finger foods. At an afternoon tea, a china three-tier stand adds elegance and a way to serve petit fours. For the family, make a weeknight dinner outdoors something special with an edible table decoration. Create fruit skewers and arrange as a centerpiece by placing each into florist foam tucked into a bowl.

Ambient Lighting

Candles of varying height and shape always work as an attractive table decoration, especially when accented with fresh spring flowers. Be original and opt for battery-operated LED candles. These come in a selection of sizes, shapes and colors. Battery-operated candles work great in a rustic lantern accompanied by potted succulents. Use to adorn a table or to enhance a side table.
