Hello!  If you are visiting from the Springtime Tablescape Blog Hop, welcome to My Family Thyme!  My name is Lynne, and My Family Thyme is a place where I share simple DIYs, sensible tips, and savory recipes, all meant to help you make the most of your time with your family.

I am so happy to be joining a creative group of bloggers for a Springtime Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by the lovely and very talented Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate.

Signs of spring make me smile…longer days filled with sunlight, birds returning from their winter homes, and bulbs beginning to sprout out of the soil. As a gardener, I can’t wait to get outside. However, until it warms up a little more here in Connecticut, I am bringing springtime into my home with this spring garden table.


I began with simple brown craft paper from Dollar Tree as a neutral backdrop. I often use craft paper or neutral gift wrap like I did here at Valentine’s Day because it is inexpensive and so versatile. For the centerpiece, I added these lifelike tulips from Amazon in a pitcher that I had on hand. These flowers are so beautiful and realistic. They are definitely one of my favorite purchases!


If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I enjoy collecting Rae Dunn. These cute Rae Dunn Plant & Seed Trowel and Hand Rake were gifts from my daughter, Elisabeth, and I absolutely love them. Fresh rosemary and parsley in Dollar Tree pots, galvanized tin tealight holders from Walmart, and sweet strawberries in a white porcelain berry basket add a variety of natural heights, textures, and colors.


For the place settings, I began with my favorite round woven placemats. I had purchased them at Kohls years ago and I use them daily. These cute Threshold blue and white melamine gingham plates caught my eye when I was at Target last week. They are inexpensive, dishwasher safe, and will be perfect to use for outdoor dining too.

Do you ever shop at the Target Dollar Spot? It is one of my favorite spots to find fun and inexpensive decor items. I found these adorable garden signs at the Target Dollar Spot for just $1 each.


A spring garden table would not be complete without seeds for planting. Each place setting is completed with a small pot, a packet of seeds, and a garden marker used a place card…all from Dollar Tree.
