Tablescape for St. Patricks Day, Spring, and Easter
One Tablescape, Three Occasion’s
I created this tablescape for St. Patricks Day but it also works well for Spring and Easter and I had these beautiful dishes with the prettiest colors of green and blue that I’d been saving for something special. I decided they would be perfect for this versatile tablescape. Creating beautiful tablescapes is something I’ve always loved to do and when I can create one that works for an entire season, I love it even more! It’s almost a challenge to create something that I can use for multiple occasions.
When creating a tablescape, I like to create a garland centerpiece. Spring flowers are still a ways off so I used faux flowers. If you use quality faux flowers, they can be used again which I’m always a fan of. I’ll link all my favorite sources at the bottom of the post.
To create the centerpiece, I used a long, faux garland and laid it on top of a table-runner for the base of the centerpiece. After fluffing the garland, I start layering in the other stems and flowers. I used long stemmed faux eucalyptus, white peonies, and some other white floral stems to fill it in and then I added in some gold and teal votive candle holders and gold candlesticks. Adding the touches of gold give the table an elegant look.
Here you can see the centerpiece greenery and the other white flowers that make up the garland centerpiece.
For the place-setting, I chose cream colored chargers with a hint of gold and mixed in white salad plates between the the green and blue dishes. This adds some contrast and breaks up the busy pattern of the dishes. For the flatware, I used a gold set with an elegant pattern and gold rimmed stemware to coordinate with the other gold accents in the dishes and candles. I used mint green solid colored napkins and laid the flatware on top of them. The dishes have a lot going on with the pattern so I thought it would tie the colors together with a napkin that was simple.
The beauty of this versatile tablescape for St. Patricks Day, Spring, and Easter lie in the details.
St. Patricks Day or Spring Version
I love how versatile these dishes are! If you look closely, you can see what looks like a three leaf clover. Thats what makes these perfect for St. Patricks Day as well as Spring, and Easter. I love creating one tabblescape that works for a few holidays or one season.
The Easter Version
For Easter, I placed an Easter sign in the middle of the table next to the garland with similar colors and then I placed small porcelain white easter bunnies and white eggs (not shown) into the garland and at the end of the tables near the candlesticks. Just a few small additions and this tablescape is now an Easter table.
The Extra Details
The extra details added into a tablescape are what makes it extra special. I add candlesticks, votive candles and other simple items. Some items like candles add more formality and leaving them off can make the table ore informal. You can change it up a little for each occasion too. Here’s a few more photos of the tablescape for those that want to see more. Scroll to the bottom for sources.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed seeing how tocan create one tablescape and make it work for multiple holidays and occasions. Everything I used in this tablescape were things I already had. It’s easy to change it up by switching out one of the plates, adding different napkins, flatware, or candles. The beauty always lies in the details! I hope this inspires you to create your own beautiful table to host your friends and family!

The dishes I used were an amazing find at Homegoods in 2017 and I’ve never been able to find them again or track down who made them. My apologies for not being able to source them.
The Easter sign was from hobby lobby but is not longer available. Here’s another option here.
