5 Ways to Create a Casual and Stylish Spring Tabletop at Home

 

Hope you celebrated green and had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day yesterday.  We always love St. Patrick’s day not because it’s fun and cool, also because it is usually the time for us to kick off the season of Spring entertaining. Specially after the several times of raining showers, everything in our garden just starts blooming.  So, of course, inspired by the warm and clear sunshine and beautiful blooms in our garden, we decided to have a causal in-home celebration by cooking comfy Irish beef stew and put up an organic spring-theme tabletop to enjoy.  You may want to do the same thing too,  but may be just intimated by the complicated task and think maybe the other time.  Well, life is about celebrating every moment.  We are celebrating by doing and engaging as much as we can.  Therefore, it is much more fun for memories and does excise your creative muscles a lot.  But there are some simple ways to make in-home entertaining much less a daunted task.  Here are 7 tips we would love to share to make spring entertaining fun, simps and stylish.

 

  1. Just go to the outdoor and go to your backyard  garden.  You will be inspired by nature a lot and make you desire to bring nature to home.  Since our garden is blooming, we just got everything from the garden—grass, roses, wild flowers, branches, herbs…

2. Please don’t wrap up your fine china and put them away at somewhere you even cannot find.  Yes, please display your chinaware at the place you can easily see. Therefore, you always want to use them.

3. Plan,plan,plan.  Write down the theme and food you would like to serve.  For St. Patrick’s day table top, we wanted to celebrate the season of spring, so we had  a lot of green-leaf veggies and in-season colorful root veggies.  The next is to prepare the menu. For ours menu is mainly  Irish beef stew with some green veggie cakes and green-leaf salad.  We actually cooked the beef stew a night before in a slower cooker.

Mother’s day is just several days away.  We have created  the beautiful interior vignettes to honor this special holiday to cherish motherhood, femininity, generosity, gentleness, kindness, care  and love.  Mother Teresa said : “Mother is the heart of the home.”   We believe that home is a place that makes us feel beautiful and loved.   The color palette of  the vignette we created below is pastels mixed with a pop of saturated colors and neutral tones to express femininity , passion and gentleness.

5 Keys to Create a Chic and Functional Home office

There are 5 keys to create a chic and functional home office:

  1. Have a solid floor plan to think through how you are going to use the space–working desk, lounge area, meeting zone…
  2. Have a chic color palette to make you focus yet relaxing.  The color palette in this project is pink, blue and black. It’s chic, youthful.
  3. Have one strong statement. We painted ceiling in pink. This makes the space very whimscal.
  4. Keep it symmetrical—the key to make small space look bigger and organized.
  5. Have greenery—green plants relax you and put you in a cheerful mood.

Happy Wednesday

In a rainy day,  we love to cuddle up in this cozy and elegant reading room. The classic snow-white on tufted chairs and silk drapes gives this traditional oak-paneled reading room an immediate #modern fresh-up.   Symmetrical design adds formality while pop of hot pink makes space whimsical and feminine.
