Tablescapes and centerpieces are one of my favorite easy ways to decorate. Simple for everyday use, or all dressed up for a special occasion, the dining room sees the most changes throughout the year. Here are 12 months of tablescape inspiration for 2018!

In January, I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to Christmas. I used some less-Christmasy decor in the dining room to create a winter wonderland centerpiece. I love using this black and white plaid scarf as a tablecloth (similar here).
So, technically, I cheated just a bit as this tablescape is from early March. But, it’s a great example of how to use grocery store flowers to create an easy, affordable centerpiece.
Tons of spring inspiration in this spring tablescape blog hop. I borrowed some of my mom’s vintage China and used some Spode salad plate flea market finds for this one.
For Easter, I created a simple blush tablescape, using neutral pieces and chalk painted eggs. Similar table runner (mine is HomeGoods) can be found here.
The weather warmed up in May and we hosted a Mother’s Day brunch on the back porch. We still love our new dining table set from Wal-Mart. I used a mix of potted plants and flowers.
For summer, I was inspired by a trip to Greece and created a Mediterranean meets farmhouse table setting. Love the hot pink and bright blue.
At the last minute, the dining room got a patriotic makeover just in time for the 4th of July.
This is what our dining room looks like most of the time. Simple and rustic. You can find a similar dough bowl here.
The arrival (invasion?) of the $1 pumpkins. I used some floral fabric and DIY’d this table runner and used blue, oranges and greens to play off the colors in the pattern.
After scoring some cheap decor at Kroger and CVS, I quickly pulled together a fun Halloween tablescape. One of my favorite holiday tablescapes so far!
I love this striped vase; it’s one of my favorite flea market scores to date. And with my fall olive green obsession, it was a good way to bring even more green into the house.
And we end the year highlighting my plaid obsession 🙂
I’m working on a post that shares some easy tips for creating tablescapes, and how you can mix and match with some simple changes each time. As you can see above, I often repeat table runners, plates and napkins to create a different look. What decor are you planning for your dining room this year?
