I created a garden themed table setting with fresh potted herbs and flowers. DIY paper pots and a drop cloth table runner add texture. I kept the colors neutral.

Last week I shared my spring farmhouse kitchen. I used fresh and herbs and succulents to add a little life for the spring season. This week I’m ready to move onto the dining room.
If you have been hanging around the farmhouse a while, you know I’m not a fancy lady. I don’t like to spend a lot of money decorating my house, and I tend to think less is more.
Natural elements that can be pilfered from the great outdoors tend to make their way through the back door and onto windowsills and table tops. Maybe its because I have no imagination, or maybe that’s just what God meant for us to do. He made it all so pretty anyway, right?
Since the most exciting thing about spring is growing herbs, flower and veggies, I decided to have a garden themed table setting. The warmer temps make the waiting soil workable.
Just last week we spread compost and tilled our plot. I can’t wait to get tiny seedlings in the ground. Potted herbs make me even more excited for the warm barefoot days ahead.
As a backdrop for my spring table setting, I made a very simple ruffle table runner from drop cloth. I layered a grain sack table runner on the top.
As a nod to the flowers coming in the months ahead, I added my wildflower scented candles from Antique Candleworks.
DIY Brown Paper Pots
I made paper pots for my herbs out of brown wrapping paper.
To make them, I added about six inches to the total height that I wanted. I folded the top over a couple of times and then rolled the paper into a tube. I secured it with tape, and folded the bottom so that the plants could stand.
Clothespin Plant Markers
I used a sharpie paint marker, and vintage clothespins, to make DIY plant markers.
Sourdough Flat Bread
The flat bread on the table is a new creation of mine. It is made from my beloved sourdough starter. If you are unfamiliar with that concept check out this post. I made it with the same method as this sourdough pizza crust, except a little thicker and topped with lots of fresh herbs and garlic.
