So, who wants to see some simple spring tablescape ideas? Simple is the key word here, right? I don't know about you guys, but spring has been, in a word, BUSY for this mama! Between the kids having mandatory testing at school, fundraisers galore, the usual lessons, homework and whatnot, not to mention everyday life, there's been nary an extra minute to spare. And that means I haven't had as much time to spend on my spring decorating as I would like to. Now, that doesn't mean I've ignored things completely. I've simply had to focus on easy decor tricks that make a big impact...
And my number one piece of home decor advice these days is to embrace houseplants. Don't get me wrong. I, by no means, have a natural green thumb, but I'm trying. And one of the best starter plants that you can try is an aloe plant. In fact, I just got a Hedgehog Aloe from The Sill that I'm totally obsessing over. I've been moving it to various spots in my house from my kitchen counter to my dining room table as part of a spring tablescape. It's so darn versatile thanks to the beautiful ceramic planter that it's housed in.

Seriously, I've been obsessed for months, and with good reason, but I digress...
Back to those simple spring tablescape ideas. Start with a houseplant in a pretty planter as your centerpiece, then add colorful placemats. I love the casual, homey vibe of braided placemats. Finish things off with simple white dishes, napkins and maybe some cute, springy napkin rings. I wasn't kidding when I said this would be easy. Try these tips yourself, and you'll have a simple spring tablescape in no time flat!
