Easy Spring Herb Table

I enjoy changing out my tablescapes. Sometimes a little change can go a long way when you're busy. I have an easy spring table to share today---it's pretty and doesn't take much time to put together. 

I picked up a few fresh pots of herbs at my local store.  I picked out herbs that I will plant later for cooking--thyme (lemon and German) and oregano. I already had the clay flower pots and the small saucers for the pots.  I have a river birch in my yard and it often sheds large pieces thin bark in the winter.  I save the larger pieces because they are interesting and I'm "always" sure I can do something with them.  So this spring, I put a piece under each potted herb.  I like the way it looks--interesting texture.  

I added Italian Countryside plates, burlap chargers and vintage silver plate flatware. 

I found this wonderful demi-john at a local antique store at a great price!  I also added a lovely piece of lace for a table runner.

Are you doing anything special this spring using fresh herbs?  I'd love for you to share your ideas with me!

Lovely table. I especially love the river birch. I often use small pots of rosemary as "place cards" at luncheons and sent them home with my guests. Thanks for sharing.

I love this Marsha! I always pick up pieces of birch when I find it lying on the ground while hiking. Love having some around for crafting. Cute idea to use it under the pots. I love herbs and enjoy walking through my herb garden and releasing the scents! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

I love this idea. I am going to pick up some little clay pots to use for table settings.

Hi Marsha, This table must have a wonderful aroma, drawing everyone to sit and wonder about the delicious food to come! Using the birch bark is a great idea. Thanks for the inspiration. Linda

Saw your feature at Savvy Southern Style's party. Your table is beautiful, love the textures and colors. I don't grow herbs because I kill all plants that come into my house - my mom had that gene and it skipped me ;) Thanks for sharing your beautiful table with us.

I am loving how you did this tablescape. The dish stack and that demijohn are really hitting home for me.

Lovely table!

Beautiful idea wit the herbs and the birch bark. I love the organic look. The demijohn made a perfect centerpiece!
