Now that May is here and the lilacs are blooming, I thought it would be fun to create a spring tablescape. I have some amazing friends that had the same idea. So I can’t wait to share all of our May Spring Tablescapes with you!

The Marvelous May Tablescape Tour
Welcome to our Marvelous May Tablescape Tour! Whether you are celebrating spring, Mother’s Day or just the beauty of the season, we’re showing you how to make things fun and festive! I hope you will join each of my talented friends for inspiration! I am loving what they have created, and I know you will too! Their links are listed at the end of this post.
Bring on the Lilacs
I absolutely love this spring flower, due to their gorgeous deep color, and their scent is extraordinary. The lilacs were the inspiration behind my May spring table.
Because I wanted to compliment the lilacs, I decided to use my vintage quilt as a tablecloth. This provided different shades of purple. The green lawn and umbrella, and the blue water in the bay, added some incredible color. As a result, it all created the perfect backdrop!
Clusters of lilacs tucked inside some twine were another perfect touch. The rattan chargers brought more texture to my tablescape.
It’s All About Color
Because lemons always bring a pop of color to any table, I brought out a bowl to sit next to the water pitcher. I used a set of yellow bowls to provide more color as well.
I added in a hint of green, and a lot of white, to finish off my May spring tablescape!
The Great Outdoors
The original plan was to create my spring tablescape inside. But I was pleasantly surprised when the sun came quite unexpectedly.
And what tablescape is complete without some vintage goodness? Because the galvanized container holding the lilacs, teacups and saucers, ironstone, and quilt were all fun vintage pieces, I was able to create more interest around the table.
I realize that not everyone has a garden full of blooming flowers right now, so another option would be to use some faux flowers to finish off a spring tablescape. Check out my post Have Fun with Faux Flowers and Greenery.
