How to: create a spring blossom table

My kitchen window looks on to this beautiful cherry blossom tree and every spring I look forward to it blossoming. So nice to see all the flowers opening – ahh spring! So feeling inspired, I thought it would be nice to bring this look to your home, so how about creating my spring blossom table. This has such a fun spring feel and calming feel to it too – I’m sure it will get your dinner guests talking.

What you’ll need

  • 1 metre baby blue fabric
  • A4 baby pink card
  • Strong glue or a hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Cherry blossom flowers

Step 1
Spring blossom table step 1
Creating the pink rosettes, is much easier than it looks. Take your A4 card and measure 9cm from the edge of the paper, get your scissors and cut upwards so it looks like the above. Start at the bottom and fold the first fan edge, switch it round and fold again.

Step 2

Step 6

Take your pleats and turn them flat, so it starts to look like the rosette above. Get your glue again and glue around all the pleats in the middle, keep squeezing until its starts to keep its shape. I found glueing on the other side helps to keep the rosette shape.

Step 7
Spring blossom table = done
With the blue fabric, I turned this in to 45cm squared napkins and then fold them into simple rectangle like above. Then take your cherry blossom and place on the napkin and finally take your pink rosette and place over the bottom of the cherry blossom.
