How to Style a Timeless Spring Table

Today I am very excited to be joining a talented group of bloggers, as we share our collected spring tablescapes with you! If you are joining me from Rachel over at "The Ponds Farmhouse", welcome! Rachel is such an inspiration to me with all her DIY's, vintage decor, and thrifting in a farmhouse between her two family ponds down a mile long dirt road in the Carolina's.

Today I want to welcome you to our Home in Coastal Maine! Be sure to check out its history and story and join me in the featured blog series "In My Mother's Home".

When the girls and I got together to share spring tablescapes, I knew immediately that I wanted to share my mother's pink and white Theodore Haviland Limoges, France china collection "In My Mother's Home". It's so beautiful and perfect for both Valentine's Day and spring!

I wrote this blog post on a cold snowy day in February here in Maine. Which had me craving fresh flowers. A quick trip to Trader Joe's, and I came home with these simply beautiful white tulips that I used for the centerpiece in an $8 thrifted pitcher.

Here I added a pink depression glass pitcher and matching glassware to the table that I also thrifted for $18. It paired perfectly with the antique china.

I have always adored macrame. So when I found these macrame placemats at a local shop, I couldn't resist. I luv the soft whimsical look it adds to the table.

My mother's sterling silverware is always a favorite of mine. However, today I wanted to try something a bit different. I added gold flatware instead, which matched beautifully with the gold trim on the Theodore Haviland china.

In the background here you can see another collected antique transferware dish collection, displayed in the corner hutch, which was also collected by my mother over the years. Check more of it out here! I luv using this antique set in the fall and winter seasons paired with my mother's extensive pewter collection. Here you can see a table I styled using both the transferware and the pewter together.

Candles are always a beautiful addition to a table. I added four glass candlesticks collected by my mother with simple white tapered candles to match the tulips.

The light shining into this room off the snow outside just made me smile. Join me to see how I styled this cozy winter windowsill in the background of our Coastal Maine Home dining room.
