Tablescape 101: Spring Brunch (Yellow & Pink)

Blossoms are no longer a distant memory and the first baby lambs are beginning to arrive. Yes, as each day passes we step closer to spring and all of the hope, opportunity and energy associated with the season's longer days. In mind of this Manvi and I wanted to pull together inspiration for a Spring Brunch - think washed-out ombre shades of primrose, lemon and fuchsia against crisp white. Here's Manvi with more of how to recreate this look...

For the invites we used a scallop print gift box with a coffee mug inside, along with rolled up paper invites and confetti for a festive touch. Claudia of Fig2Design dip dyed beautiful and playful invites, menus and place cards in softer pastels shades of the core pink and yellow palette. Michelle’s calligraphy added a touch of sophistication to each piece. We also decided to key into the ombre dip dye trend, which proved an enjoyable and inexpensive DIY approach to creating unique table linens. Fold a solid white cotton bed sheet to align the edges and dip in liquid dye to create an instant no-sew tablecloth. For this scheme we used pink and fuscia dyes (from Rit) to get an ombre effect, with the whole DIY costing less than $10. The flower centrepieces anchored the stationery and linens by tying the scheme together. Three milk bottles filled with vibrant dual-toned roses, white and fuscia ranunculus, and eucalyptus pod branches formed the multiple-piece centerpiece. The eucalyptus branches added height and sculptural interest to the arrangement, drawing the eye upwards to the colorful dip-dyed paper lanterns. Opting for a multiple-piece center arrangement makes it easy to move a couple of the vases during the meal to make space for dishes without compromising on the look. Colourful, stylish and practical - just the way Mr. Bazaar likes it!
