How to Use Your Five Senses When Creating A Fabulous Spring Table

Each Spring the arrival of fresh floral scents, the sound of the birds chirping, and the beautiful textures of the leaves unfolding with buds, always get me energized! 

How do you dress a Spring Table?

  1. Use light and airy colors
  2. Consider adding a birds nest or birdhouse with florals
  3. Use happy colors that are vibrant like yellow, pink or orange
  4. Mix vintage items with newer ones for a classic look
  5. Opt for fresh flowers over faux florals
  6. Incorporate fresh fruit into your centerpiece
  7. Mix and match napkins for a whimsical look

The Scented Spring Table

I thought it would be fun to welcome Spring into our homes by focusing on our five senses and incorporating them into our dinner table.

Today I’m going to focus on adding the sense of scent/smell to our homes! Let’s get started!

What do you think of when you think of fresh Spring air? 

I love when Spring finally arrives (it’s slow to come in the northeast) and I can open the windows and let the warm air inside.

It’s the time I start to think of outdoor projects and planting in my garden beds.

Springtime is the time for new life and new beginnings as well. These scents are amazing.

  • Smell or Fragrance of Flowers
  • Zest of a Fresh Lemon
  • Lilacs Blooming
  • Tulip, Daffodils
  • Cherry Blossoms in the Park
  • Fresh Grass being Cut
  • Laundry on the Clothesline
  • Cooking on the Grill 

Setting your Spring table

Before you begin to get your spring decorations out, think about how you might add all of the ‘sense’ elements to your home decorating. 

Inspiration for My Spring Table

First off, the inspiration for my Spring Table came from the color and scent of yellow tulips and roses! Tulips are the first scent I recognize when I think of Spring arriving. 

I couldn’t resist buying a few bouquets as soon I as saw them arrive in our local market.

Spring Table Ideas
  • A good place to start is by bringing the scents of Spring into your home and table decor by placing herbs and flowers with a stronger scent in vases around your table
  • Flowers like lavender, gardenia, sweet pea, rosemary (a favorite scent of mine) work best for this
  • Beautiful flowers can serve several of your senses; ie: touch, scent, sight
  • Add the herbs to a spray bottle and use them as an air room spritz
  • Sliced Lemons whether in lemonade or sliced on the table as a condiment says Spring is in the air
  • Serve foods with fresh herbs which will have a wonderful aroma 
  • Play soft instrumental music for your sense of sound ( rain falling is a soothing option)
  • Use different textures such as linen, cotton, wood, branches, or a birds nest for your sense of touch
  • Finally, add a cup of a tasty Spring tea, lemon dessert, or a lemon drop martini

Lemons have the freshest scent and are visually appealing! Isn’t this lemon pitcher just darling on my Spring table!

With each fresh scent that you add to your table, you will not only enhance or heighten your senses, but your Spring Table will also look fabulous!

How Often Do You Season a Cast Iron Skillet

If you’re anything like me, you know that a trusty cast iron skillet isn’t just a cooking utensil; it’s a beloved companion in the kitchen. I’ve been on a quest to perfect my cast iron cooking game, and in the process, I’ve discovered something pretty fantastic—a lightweight cast-iron pan that has completely changed the game for me. It’s become my go-to for everything from crispy bacon in the morning to that perfectly seared steak at night. But here’s the million-dollar question that often stumps both newbies and seasoned pros alike: How often do you season a cast iron skillet?
