So many of us have mastered the art of creating the ultimate Christmas table setting, but how do you dress your table for the rest of year? Spring is a prime chance to update your tableware collection and an easy way to give your entire dining space a new look.

Warmer temperatures and brighter skies mean there’s no better time to start scheduling social gatherings with friends and family, and the season’s succulent ingredients call us to start experimenting with fresh, colourful recipes that need a coveted table setting to match.

We pick seven inspiring ways to help you perfect your tablescaping this season.


The Look

This pretty table setting, styled by Alexander James Interiors, is fresh table setting at its finest. Sophisticated yet subtle, the look is achieved with timeless white dinnerware and crystal clear glassware, providing a light contrast to the dark tabletop, charcoal-hued artwork and grey cushions. Switch the look up for the winter months by swapping white porcelain for dark designs.

The Look

This inviting setting – found in a South Kensington penthouse designed by Helen Green Design – is all about tones and textures. Taking a luxe but pared-back approach to colour, dark, earthy tones are mixed with subtle metallic touches (think golden-rimmed bowls and a pair of shining vases), while orange blooms add just the right burst of vibrancy. Stacking placemats, chargers and dinnerware bring a layered dimension to the display.

Key Elements

Detailed flutes, earthy-toned dinnerware and table linens, hammered gold napkin rings, high-shine vases

The Look

A.LONDON by Accouter draws on the room scheme of this St John’s Wood property to inspire the springtime tablescape. Coloured glasses and dove-grey napkins reference the blue and grey tones of the surrounding upholstery, artwork and the sculptural floor lamp’s shade. When it comes to tableware, the London-based studio achieves a smart, timeless aesthetic with patterned monochrome plates. To finish, three bunches of calla lilies – tied with a simple ivory ribbon – add a seasonal, natural touch.

Stripped back but super-elegant, this is how to nail a cool, contemporary take on spring table styling. What’s the secret formula? A monochrome palette elevated by flashes of gold and silver keeps the look clean and rich at once. Detailed touches – from the feather-print linens to the silken black bow used to gather cutlery together in a stylish array – dresses up the look so it can translate from day to nighttime perfectly.

The Look

Pay homage to the emerging colours that come with the spring season by embracing bright hues on your tabletop. From the kingfisher napkins to the coloured trim on the patterned dinner plates, brave blues hues instantly amp up the personality on this table setting. Statuesque candle holders and twisted napkin rings (in ultra-polished gold finishes for a radiant touch) introduce a sculptural element that gives the styling a modern attitude.

The Look

Let tall stems stand out amongst a simple tabletop line-up to execute effortlessly beautiful springtime styling. White dinnerware, neutral placemats and timeless glassware will always equal a chic, fail-safe aesthetic. Notice how golden cutlery pieces are placed neatly on top of each plate, as opposed to either side. This trick will add another visual layer to your place settings, plus it helps to keep smaller tabletops from feeling overcrowded.
