I can’t stop thinking about spring so I thought it might be fun to create a table with a new spring color palette.
Look at all of the amazing items I found at Hobby Lobby! It’s feeling a bit like spring in Southern California because it is 85 degrees. I created a new spring color palette and I absolutely love it!

Decorating a Table with a New Spring Color Palette
But wait. Is it Spring yet?
But here’s the thing. It’s been in the high 80’s for almost a week and I am ready for spring. So here we go.
How to Choose a Spring Color Palette
When the seasons change, I usually spend a lot of time looking through magazines, Pinterest, and online for new color palette ideas.
This year the process was very different because it happened inside a Hobby Lobby store!
I love shopping at Hobby Lobby and as soon as I heard they were selling their Spring Shop® product line for 40% off I drove straight to my favorite store.
I had so much fun shopping the entire Spring Shop®. There were so many choices, and I hadn’t even thought about my color palette.
But when I found the aisle full of greens, blues, and purples I knew exactly what I was going to do!
Decorating a Table in My New Spring Color Palette
I started decorating in January with a new palette of sage green and light blue. For my decor this spring, I really wanted to keep the greens and blues and never thought about adding in some purple.
As soon as I saw The Spring Shop® tablescape items, I knew I had found my color palette.
The first item I saw were these Blue Plaid Plates. The colors are perfect! The spring color palette has sage green, light blue, dark blue, and shades of purple. It’s the perfect color combination.
Next, I found the Small Blue Hydrangea Floral Plates. Actually, I found three different kinds! The plates come in blue, purple, and pink. I chose the blue but as you can see there are some amazing colors in the blue plates, including all of the colors in the plaid plates.
To create the place settings, I like to build up. As you can see in the progress photo below, I started with a 12″ square piece of cardstock, added a placemat I have owned for years, and then added the plaid and blue hydrangea melamine plates.
What do you think of the place setting? Aren’t the colors wonderful?
I wanted to add some serving pieces to the table so I chose two tableware/acrylic serveware items from the Spring Shop®. I found this Green Ridged Glass Look Pitcher for ice water and added some fresh lemon slices. and a green salad bowl. I am pretty sure I will be using these all year long.
I also selected this Green Textured Glass Look Serving Bowl. I put together my favorite Spring Mix Salad and doesn’t it look fabulous in this bowl? I am pretty sure I will be using these all year long.
I came across some wonderful individual Small Acacia Charcuterie Boards. I love offering my dinner guests their own appetizer plate and the small charcuterie boards are perfect. The Large Acacia Charcuterie Board is great for snacks, appetizers, and in this case, fruit!
I added homemade deviled eggs to the smaller, individual charcuterie boards for everyone to enjoy.
These deviled eggs are simply amazing, and you should try this recipe. They really are that good!
- 1 dozen hard boiled eggs
- ¾ cup Mayonnaise
- 1 TBL Yellow Mustard
- ½ cup Durkee Famous Sauce (this is the secret ingredient that makes these eggs so amazing!)
- Hard boil one dozen eggs.
- Once eggs are peeled, cut each egg in half length-wise. Remove the egg yolks to a mixing bowl to mix with the other ingredients and place the egg whites onto the deviled egg platters.
- Start with the mayonnaise. This is the condiment which leads to the creamy texture of the deviled egg.
- Add the yellow mustard and Durkee Famous Sauce to the bowl.
- Using a hand blender (fondly referred to in our family as the guacamole maker, you can turn even hard avocados into guacamole with a hand blender) or hand mixer, blend the eggs yolks, mayonnaise, mustard and Durkee Famous Sauce until smooth and lump free. The volume of the egg yolks will have increased substantially.
- I use my cake decorating kit to pipe the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites so that it looks pretty. Start by fitting the bag onto the tip. Place the tip end of the bag into a medium sized mason jar or glass. This keeps the bag standing upright and any filling leakage in the jar/glass. Use a spatula to spoon the egg filling into the decorating bag. Start by filling the egg in a circular motion, gently squeezing the bag until the egg is filled. When filled, stop gently squeezing the bag and lift the tip away from the egg, moving to the next egg white. You can just use a teaspoon and spoon it in if you prefer.
- Fill all of the egg whites with the egg yolk mixture (you will probably have leftover egg yolk mixture, this is really good as a tea sandwich filling!)
Centerpiece / Faux Flowers
For the centerpiece, I found a beautiful blue vase in the floral department. They had so many options to choose from, but I am partial to a footed vase.
I filled the vase with some stunning faux blue hydrangeas.
If you haven’t shopped the floral department at Hobby Lobby, then you are missing out. Their selection is huge, and I love that they look so real.
How to Arrange Faux Flowers
I love using fresh and faux flowers in my arrangements. Both are wonderful and on occasions, I have been known to combine them. Fresh smell great but faux arrangements last so much longer!
For this table arrangement, I used five faux hydrangeas. Anytime you use faux flowers, try not to cut the stems. Just bend them so you can use a longer stem in the future. I bent these stems into three sections before I placed them in the vase. They fit perfectly.
