Create a stunning purple and white spring or summer tablescape with anemone flowers that will brighten up your table. Get all my best tips here.
With the warmer days of spring and summer soon upon us, it’s the perfect time to gather family and friends together. One way to make your gatherings even more memorable is by setting a beautiful spring or summer tablescape with anemone flowers from your garden or a local flower farm. I love growing my own flowers and using them in my centerpieces for my tablescapes and when there is a flower that I want to use and don’t have, I reach out to my flower farmer friends.

My friend Amy Brown and her husband Steve, own Laughing Goat Flower Farm in Enumclaw, Washington which is not far from my Ravensdale home. She grows beautiful flowers and we have become good friends over the years sharing our love of flowers, good food, and setting a beautiful table.
I received these dishes as a gift from a brand called Bico Ceramics and when I saw the anemone flowers on the dishes, I called Amy and sure enough, she had these beautiful anemone flowers.
I visited her at the farm and then put them in a vase and carried them onto the plane with me and took them back to our Utah home! This is not uncommon for me to do since I have two homes and go back and forth between them.
In my defense, a lot of people visit the famous Pike Place Market in Seattle which is famous for its fish and beautiful flower bouquets. It’s not uncommon to see visitors carrying these flower bouquets onto the airplane so no one looked at me strangely thank goodness! HaHa!
I also bought some other flowers and greenery from a local floral shop to go with the anemone flowers I brought back from Washington.
In this post I’m going to share all the beautiful details with you on how I created this tablescape full of one of my favorite flowers, Anemone Flowers!
Step 1: Choose Your Color Palette
Start by selecting a color palette. The purple and white anemone dishes were the initial inspiration for this color palette and then of course, the anemone flowers were also inspiration for this tablescape.
Step 2: Gather Tableware and Linens
To complement the color scheme, choose tableware and linens that showcase the chosen colors. I love to layer my plates on top of a charger and placemat.
In this tablescape, I used the Bico Ceramics dinnerware, a woven hyacinth placemat, silver flatware, clear water goblets, silver rimmed wine glasses, and green ruffled napkins with a wooden napkin ring.
Step 3: Create a Beautiful Centerpiece with Anemone Flowers
The anemone centerpiece is the focal point of the table.
Step 4: Add Subtle Accents
Enhance the beauty of the tablescape by incorporating subtle accents such as bud vases with the remaining flowers left from making the centerpiece. You can also add candles!
Step 5: Embrace Natural Elements
Embrace the spring or summer season by incorporating natural elements into your tablescape. I used a mix of greenery in the centerpiece and a few other purple and white flowers to fill in the rest of the arrangement. I also mixed in some natural wood elements into the tablescape with the placemats, wood napkin rings, and wood candle holders.
Step 6: Play with Heights
Varying the heights of your decor elements adds visual interest to the tablescape. Use candle holders or small stands to elevate some of the floral arrangements. This helps create an inviting table.
Step 7: Personalized Place Settings
For a thoughtful touch, consider personalized place cards for each guest. You can write their names on small cards and tuck them into the napkins or attach them to unique placeholders. I didn’t use any place cards on this tablescape because this was an informal dinner for our immediate family but I love to add them when it’s more formal and a larger group.
Step 8: Candles
Candles create a warm ambiance to any dinner table. Add in some candlesticks with taper candles if you like. I love doing this any time of year and any time of day! If you’re hosting dinner outside, candles also help with lighting as the sun sets!
With the right color palette, beautiful anemone flowers, and a dash of creativity, you can create a stunning purple and white spring or summer tablescape that will leave a lasting impression on your guests.
So, gather your loved ones and relish in the joy of shared moments around a beautifully adorned table!
