The March issue of our monthly ‘Urban Jungle Bloggers’ series features the theme ‘spring or Easter styling with plants’. I must admit I was a bit challenged mostly because I won’t be at home in Munich for Easter so I am not planning on any Easter themed decoration. Next challenge: I usually don’t do any spring decoration at home, I mean apart from the random bunch of fresh blooms. But the topic was set so I had to adjust and invent. And I had to it quickly on a Sunday morning. I got up and before I had breakfast the idea came to me: Let’s do a happy spring table setting.
The props were to be found in my home. A few basics and decorative kitchen accessories, a few colour pops in my favorite hues blue and yellow and of course some of my houseplants. I think that cacti and small sized succulents are excellent elements for a tabletop styling – so I was all ready to go and give it a try.
Given the limited time frame and scope of props I only had a one shot trial. I added a linen tablecloth in an earthy hue, grey plates, simple cutlery, fine blue and white napkins that I brought back from Stockholm, glasses, an olive oil carafe, a water carafe, my yellow Muuto pepper mill, a few blue and yellow candles and candleholders, some stems of fresh blooms, and my plants – voilà, a quick spring inspired tabletop styling theme with some of my favorite houseplants.
I have not outdone myself this time, but I was fine with the outcome. Plus after the styling and photographing I had a finely set table to enjoy my leisurely Sunday breakfast – all alone!
Enough from my part, I am off to check out what the others have created for this month’s ‘Urban Jungle Bloggers’ topic.
Oh and don’t forget: Houseplants will make your home a healthier and happier place!
