Today, I am very excited to share a Natural Muted Boho Chic Spring Table Setting that I created for our Easter Dinner AND for an upcoming Mother’s Day celebration. There was so much inspiration for this table!
Typically, I design our Easter tables around traditional “springy” colors. This year, I wanted to do something that was a little outside of the box. Part of my muse was that I wanted this table to last through Mother’s Day since they are so close together this year. This is partly what inspired the centerpiece.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been home in Dallas a lot for the last couple of months due to the loss of two very special people. I have also been overwhelmed with several projects I have here in Denver and some health issues in our family.
Because of these unexpected events, I did not go crazy with decorating for Easter this year. Only our son was home and it has also still been really cold around here. Sadly, I have not been feeling the full spring vibe yet. 🙁
Did you notice our new chandeliers/pendants in our dining room?! I have been looking forward to sharing them! I have more images of them at the bottom of this post and have linked them. You will NOT BELIEVE how inexpensive they were!!
A Natural Muted Boho Chic Spring Table Setting
Spring usually comes a little later than where you may live. There is a commonly known and “steadfast rule”, that you do not plant anything new for the spring until at least Mother’s Day. However, once it starts warming up, I cannot help myself to be a little ahead of the game. It drives my hubby nuts, for sure!
I have been known to plant a few things early and they inevitably get hit by a late snowstorm. UGH! My solution to scratch my “itch” was to go ahead and buy some of the herbs and plants that I intend to use for the spring and summer a tad bit early but use them all for a table setting first.
Don’t you just love the idea of using these plants for multiple purposes?! It has always been a mantra of my blog to show you ways to re-use and re-purpose things in our homes. This is a perfect example of that!
The Place Settings
I felt that using fresh herbs and plants had a bit of a “boho chic” feeling so I started by searching out some new tableware to create this look. I started with finding these gorgeous Dusty Rose/Mauve Washed Linen Napkins…so soft and elegant.
By running the napkins through the napkin rings longways, I thought they would look like bows…perfect for Mother’s Day.
Finding a natural looking placemat/charger was a must! Amazon came through for me in this department! These Seagrass Woven Placemats were brilliant. I just LOVE the texture they provide for this eclectic look.
I have been itching for a new set of neutral dinnerware and have been shopping like crazy for them. I flipped when I found this Gibson Elite Matisse Double Bowl Dinnerware Set on Amazon! They were perfect for this table setting and I have lots more ideas for ways to use them.
Vintage-looking glassware is the way to go for a table setting like this. Fortunately, I have TONS! I also think the etching on the glassware lends itself to a more formal setting for special occasions such as Easter or Mother’s Day.
It was my goal for the table to be “oozing” a natural look through the centerpiece. Using fresh herbs, indoor houseplants, succulents, and moss were perfect to use here. Plus, I can plant them in my garden once I breakdown this table. BONUS!
I made my big haul at my local O’Toole’s Garden Center to create this centerpiece. They have an amazing selection of fresh herbs, house plants, and succulents, among all of the other outdoor and indoor garden products.
For this centerpiece, I used fresh rosemary, basil, thyme, red butter lettuce (obsessed with the color!!!), and sage. Can I tell you how divine my dining room smells?! We still have some really cool nights ahead so keeping these plants inside for now is very prudent.
You could really use any combination of plants or herbs which make it super easy to create this natural look. The same goes for the muted color palette.
To create the overall look, I simply layered the different species around my new Mango Wood Taper Candlesticks starting with the taller plants and down the smallest ones.
The finishing touches included filling in with a variety of color-coordinated votive holders.

If you know me well, you know that I always coordinate the decor on our buffets. Here is how I tackled that.
There are several other examples of how I have used herbs and plants in a variety of table settings. Click on the links below to see more ideas…
Here are a few more images of our new pendants (that I just love!!)…
It was one-stop shopping for me at O’Toole’s Garden Center to collect all of these natural herbs, house plants, and succulents. I can’t wait to use all of these outdoors in a few weeks!
I hope you enjoyed seeing the details of a Natural Muted Boho Chic Spring Table Setting! This is absolutely one of my favorite table settings to date. What do you think?!
