Looking for green and white table setting ideas? I have a simple tablescape in white and green for you that is perfect for fall decorating or for St. Patrick’s Day. White white flowers and green foliage this green and white table decor is a timeless classic.
Last night we had a little dinner party, and I decided to give our dining table some extra love and attention.
It was a last moment kind of idea, so I worked with what I had on hand or could grab out of the garden or the recycle bin.
Last-minute, fast, and easy fall decorating is my specialty, and this table setting was no exception.
I came up with a green and white tablescape that looked so fresh and vibrant that I couldn’t resist snapping some images.
How to Set an Easy Green and White Table Setting
I used basic elements to pull off this easy green and white table setting.
- Layered natural linen tablecloth with a small lace runner for extra texture
- Crisp white dinnerware that I stacked for extra effect
- Clear glass vases and drinking glasses
- Bright green bottles as vases
- White flowers and green foliage in vases down the center of the table
- Green and white pumpkins as quirky place cards holders
- White pillar candles with a small ivy wreath
- Tiny decorative gourds scattered on the table
The combination of green and white creates a fresh and elegant table setting that is perfect for any occasion. The use of the pumpkins makes this tablescape perfect for fall, but the pumpkins could be easily replaced with other decorative items in green for a similar effect. Fresh green fruit like apples or pears come to mind, mini heads of cabbage would work too, as would Christmas ornaments.
Green and White Table Setting Ideas For Fall
I really loved how this fall table setting turned out. It was pretty laid back and quick to set up, but the combination of the white china against the green foliage and pumpkins really worked.
I also love how the white plates and sparkly glassware add a touch of sophistication while the green bottles and the luscious greenery bring a natural element to the table.
This white and green table setting is perfect to welcome dinner guests to the table. It makes a statement and an impact.
Of course, the big vase with green leaves might hinder conversation. So it is best to remove that from the table when dinner is served. But, I guess that goes without saying.
A green and white table setting like this would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. It is laid back and easy to do, it emphasizes green decorations, without being childish or over the top.
I think it only took me 20 minutes to put this tablescape together. Most of that time was spent fiddling with the ivy branches so they could be little wreaths around my candles.
So what do you think? Like this white and green color combination?
Do you think green and white decor works for fall decorating, or do you prefer more traditional colors?
