“That is one good thing about this world… There are always sure to be more springs.” —L.M. Montgomery

In early March we did a spring photo shoot at the farmhouse and I made this video of how to style your spring table for the upcoming holidays. Little did we know just a few weeks later we’d be required to practice social distancing and have to redefine home entertaining. As we hibernate for a bit longer, spring carries on and there has never been a better time to be inspired for those spring and summer gatherings we will all have in the near future.

The one thing I love about spring is waking up to the chirping of birds, longer warmer days, and watching the property shift to lush colors which seems to happen overnight. In our neck of the woods, one of the first signs of spring are the lovely little snow drops in random patches along the lawn and the bright yellow of forsythia blooms followed by daffodils and other colorful bulbs. Everything we do at the farmhouse is inspired by nature and that includes a simple yet colorful table of mini daffodils, hyacinth, and crocus with a mix of rustic dinnerware from our home collection and miss-matched vintage floral plates and etched stemware. A rule of thumb in styling any table is to keep things simple with a cohesive color palette and always incorporate a style that brings you joy. Oh… and candles will make any dinner table that much better (unscented of course)!

As we long for brighter and more social days ahead, remember to keep being creative and inspired. Even though it will just be Kris and I at this table, we thought it’s still a great idea to inspire spring and summer entertaining, even for a party of one! I hope you enjoy my video below and happy spring everyone.
