Spring Table Inspiration at the Beach
I learned today that I Always Need to be resourceful. I also learned that it is easy to create a Spring tablescape inspiration with mismatched items that are also very inexpensive.
When I joined this blog hop a few months ago, I never imagined I would be creating a table without fresh flowers and with no one here to enjoy it! I have been self-quarantined at our Ventura home for ten days and I didn’t think I had much to create a spring table inspiration. Interestingly enough, I loved creating this spring table using things I found all over our Ventura home. The hunt was really fun!
I learned a very valuable lesson today. I learned that you can create a pretty tablescape with mismatched items that are very inexpensive.
Before I get into the details, I wanted to remind you all to check out the gorgeous tablescapes some of my favorite bloggers created. Thanks to Lory from Desighthusiasm for putting this together. Links and photos are listed below!
There are a few things you should know about this spring table inspiration. First, my original plans were to style this table with an Easter theme. But I didn’t have any eggs (not even the real kind) in our Ventura home so that idea didn’t work. Hence, I decided to go with a Spring beachy theme.
I have a lot of glassware and sea glass and aqua colored decor. And I absolutely love how this table turned out.
I did discover there is a big crack in this vase, and I had to use glass glue (which I can’t believe I found in this house) to fix it for this photo. Fortunately, you can’t see it.
It is also quite obvious that I am obsessed with two things on this table. They are sea glass and ball jars.
You can learn more about how I collect sea glass here. It is quite plentiful on the beaches in Ventura and it’s one of my favorite things to do while we are here.
I collect old vintage jars. The large aqua ball jars in the center of the table are vintage. I find them at vintage flea markets for about $5-8.00 each. The clear vintage jars filled with sea glass are also from the flea market. I have found these as inexpensive as $2.00!
The smaller aqua Ball jars are our “everyday drinking glasses” and they are new and from Target. These glasses are 16 oz. Ball jars. The Ball jars are sold in a package of four and cost only $2.00 each!
I mentioned that I had to scour our home in Ventura to put this spring table inspiration together. I pulled the aqua books off of our kitchen bookshelf. These books were found at the Ventura Antique Flea Market too. I will never forget telling the vendor I wanted books that were aqua-colored and didn’t care what the subject matter was. The guy thought I was crazy!
The plates are from Home Goods. And I only paid $3.00 each.
It took a while to find six matching placemats and napkins. Who knew that I had three different places in our Ventura home where I store tablecloths, placemats, and napkins.
Fortunately, I don’t anymore.
I really love my table and I think it’s great for spring. It taught me to be more resourceful with what I already have. Hopefully, you also noticed that I don’t spend a lot of money on my plates, glasses, etc. I love a great bargain and you DO NOT need to spend a lot of money on your tablescapes. They can look great even when the items are in the price range of $2.00 to $4.00.
I am thrilled to share some amazing tablescapes from some of my favorite bloggers. Be sure to click on the links to see some very inspiring ideas.
