Happy day my friends. How about some Spring Table Decor ideas today?
When I said I was channeling ‘all things mossy’ this year…I really wasn’t joking.
And once I got started, it seems I just couldn’t stop.
Part of the problem is that I discovered ‘Scotch Moss’ at my local hardware store and realized there are just so many uses for it. No joke, I went back to the hardware store 3 times to pick up more moss; I just kept finding more ways to use it.
This little plant is filling our front porch planters in nicely.
And is just about perfect tucked into a little galvanized trough I keep on our breezeway.
And, nestled in my Grandmother’s milk glass urns, the moss was the starting point for the decor on my dining room table decor.
Those moss-filled urns are just about perfect partners for the silver punch bowl my mom gave me, which is filled with ferns and reindeer moss.
I wanted to capitalize on that beautiful, mossy green in my spring table decor.
Pro Tip: I used packaging air pillows to fill the punch bowl and then covered it with the reindeer moss.
My white Juliska plates are perfect with the milkglass, silver and mossy green…the combination is fresh and bright for any table decor.
I am just starting to realize all the many ways I can use my Cricut Explore Air 2; these napkin rings are just one of the ways. Having a tool like this that lets me easily and spontaneously follow my creative whims is really a dream come true for the crafting and diy geek in me.
In this case, I wanted just another pop of green on the plates.
I found these square napkins rings on Amazon,which I can see being useful for so many occasions. They can be easily reused, but they are also reasonably enough priced that I will probably keep some on hand for when I need a base for other napkin rings.
I used the ‘grass‘ that was leftover from the Welcome Sign I made for my front porch and cut a border pattern (Ribbons and Rosettes) that is available in the Cricut Access library. And here’s a problem for a decision-challenged lass like myself…there are over 2500 borders to choose from in the Cricut Access library. It’s like Baskin-Robbins times 80!
Finally I just had to say, “Lynn, for heaven’s sake, just chose one!”
Then it was simple to attach the borders to the napkin rings.
Cricut Pro Tip: Using a material that ‘sheds’ will leave bits of stuff behind on your adhesive Cricut mat. You can easily clean it off with baby wipes. I keep a package of the generic, store brand wipes in my office to keep my mats clean.
My table is ready for Springtime entertaining, with all it’s moss and greenery.
I’ll be keeping the plants, birds, mossy stones and votives up for some time as I think this centerpiece will transition well in to Summer. That is until I get a bee in my bonnet and decide to change it up.
Pin it for your future reference!
