Fresh. Vibrant. Joyful. That’s the springtime spirit that you can bring to your wedding, not only with all the gorgeous flowers in bloom but with the perfect choice of colors to decorate your wedding tables! And speaking of spring flowers, what better inspiration could there be for your wedding table palette? So we put together this selection of three spring color schemes to inspire you—using floral and fruity hues of the season. Now, if these don’t make you catch spring fever, then we don’t know what will!

A Sunny Citrus Palette in Lemon, Lime, Orange, and Peach

Okay, we know that citrusy hues tend to be associated with summer. But with freshness being a major quality of springtime, you have to agree that you can’t get much fresher than the perky colors and invigorating scents of fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges! So why not bring them in for spring?

Bringing the colors to the table:

1) We set the fruity scene with a peach-toned table cloth as backdrop.
2) Then, we crafted a centerpiece of sunny oncidium orchids and cheery gerberas, surrounded by actual fresh lemons, limes, and oranges.
3) For a softening touch, we added arrangements of creamy ivory roses in mini pots.
4) The simple place settings use bold, bright solids—yellow napkins tied with hot orange ribbons against crisp white plates.
5) As favors, what could be more fitting than silk flower-shaped sachets holding a tangy candy mix of lime, lemon, and orange drops?
6) And for a final playful accent, we scattered paper circles in the same citrusy colors across the tabletop like fun, over-sized confetti! For more lovely details, see our citrus themed table post!

Other decorating options:

1) Assemble centerpieces of citrus fruits in different sized glass cylinders to grace each table.
2) Use real fruits as display stands for your place cards or menu cards on wooden skewers.
3) Slice open 2 or 3 lemons or limes at each table to fill the party venue with that tangy citrus fragrance!

A Fresh Palette of Hues in Purple, Pink, and Sage Green

Next, we did mention flowers—the ultimate in springtime symbols. So a tablescape using nature’s floral hues for its palette is certain to be a charmer! Plus, the variety and beauty of spring blooms themselves provide ready-made decorative elements that are hard to match.

Bringing the colors to the table:

1) Purple asters, white rice flowers, yellow goldenrod, and pink alstroemeria (behind the birdcage) provided all the charming colors for our palette! Note: We intentionally chose flowers with tiny blossoms in sweet little bunches to be able to simulate a miniature spring garden on our table top.
2) To mark each table, we prepared table names instead of numbers using actual flower seed packets mounted in petite flowerpots .
3) In place of traditional vases, we displayed the flowers in clay urns painted in pastel colors, dainty floral-patterned tea cups, and glass goblets.
4) And to balance all the flowery hues, we added lots of fresh greenery and decorative moss balls. See more inventive details in our spring centerpiece post!

Other decorating options:

1) If fresh flowers may be beyond your party budget, faux blooms made of silk or paper would make just as lovely alternatives.
2) Cut flowers suspended on the finest fishing line could create a seeming “floating” centerpiece, or blooms tied to dangling ribbons would make a darling dessert table backdrop.
3) Sweet or scented favors packaged in floral-painted favor pouches would suit the springtime theme perfectly!

A Candy Palette in Sweet Hues of Pink, Mint Green, and Ivory

Sweetness is another quality associated with springtime. So how fitting would a candy-inspired palette be for your spring wedding tables? And from among the many delightful sugary colors, we chose cherry pink and mint green. When set against ivory, they go from just sweet to stylish, too!

Bringing the colors to the table:

1) Since flowers are still the stars of this season, we used actual candies (pink M&Ms) in petite silver baskets only for the welcome treats.
2) We presented these sweet tokens atop each place setting, surrounded by swirls of mint-colored ribbons tying each plate and napkin up like a present.
3) For a captivating hint of sparkle, we set out elegant candles on jeweled coasters and scattered glittery sequins all over to catch the candle light!

Other decorating options:

1) Those same pink rose flowerpots could double as your place card holders. Simply substitute guests’ name cards for the favor tags.
2) To play up the candy inspiration of your palette, consider vintage candy jars filled with pink and mint green sweets for your centerpieces.
3) You could even expand the pink-and-mint motif by giving your table decor a preppy, Lily Pulitzer -style slant! See our preppy pink post!
