Spring Table with Copper, Succulents, and Hanging Plants
Create a fresh, happy spring vibe in your dining room with this super simple spring table decorated with copper, succulents, and hanging plants!
We had our first freeze in October last year, and our last one just two days ago. You might think from those details that I lived in the northern United States or even Canada, but nope (the fact that it’s been up to 90 several times in between might give me away 😉 ). Seriously, though, it’s been a long and confusing winter down here in Texas. The bright side? My hanging plants and succulents have been keeping me company inside for almost 6 months.
So when Bre from Rooms for Rent invited me to join her for a spring tablescape tour, I thought it would be fun to pull together these little pots of cheer for a simple spring table. And psst… she gathered lots of amazing bloggers today, so be sure to check them out at the end of the post!
Before we talk about the table, though, can we just give a round of applause for Fred? That’s the fig tree’s name (why? no idea… it just felt right). This guy was a $8.97 clearance at a local nursery 5-6 years ago. I’d say he’s clearly overcome his malnourished childhood.

Hanging Plants and Succulents Centerpiece
Really, though, the rest of these little guys (minus Fred, of course) will probably make their way back outside soon, so it was fun to put together an easy copper and green spring table before they go.
GET THE LOOK:
I started with my favorite wooden candlesticks (which are, unfortunately, no longer available, but these are similar, just on a smaller scale)…
Added in my favorite copper canisters (I’ve even written a post about versatile decor like canisters… they are SO easy!)…
And topped it off with a few little plants. The aloe usually lives indoors, but the airplane plant (the curly one) usually hangs from our back porch. I just clipped a few small ones off the mother plant (which you can see above the china cabinet).
I’ve also got a couple of philodendrons and that fun purple spiderwort in the corner. Hanging plants are becoming a favorite accent of mine throughout my home and garden, but bringing them together in this one space was so fun!

Mixing Faux and Real Greenery
In case you didn’t notice, it’s not all real… Can you spot the fakes? There are just two.
The first is a little olive tree (this one is similar) in a teak vase (similar)… and the second is the little one on the tallest candlestick. I love to mix faux and real.
Super Simple Spring Table
Honestly, I didn’t want much fuss beyond the beauty of the greenery. I used some simple woven placemats and my everyday white dishes (chip and all)…
And obviously added the copper mugs.
I think this would be so fun for Easter, Mother’s Day, or regular dinner (probably without the tablecloth, though 😉 ). Simple is definitely speaking to me these days.
But whatever your style, there are so many more ideas being shared today! Be sure to check them out below, and don’t forget to pin this for later.

Thank you Krista!

Thank you, Shelley!
So beautiful, Rachel!
Thank you, friend!
I’m sorry, I see no difference from summer, fall or winter. How about a simple pink or coral placemat to complement and highlight the greenery. It is for spring after all. Give it some color, and help eliminate the designers who think dull white and battleship gray are a color.
So lovely! Remind me again: what color are your walls in these photos? And…I’d love to know where to get a wood vase similar to the one in the foyer..think it’s sitting on the boot box.
Many thanks for your excellent taste and talent!
Hi Carolyn! Thanks for asking! The color is Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams. The teak vase can be found through this affiliate link: https://rstyle.me/~8qSE4
I am such a big fan of plants, but I think my favorite part of this post is your chipped plate! I love how that adds a sense of history and story to the table. It is reminiscent of dinners with friends and family. And how we all come into relationships a little broken, and it is ok!
What wonderful memories! I’m so glad I could both inspire and remind you of those things!
Fred is gorgeous! I also love your floors, are they hardwood or laminate?
They are hardwood, Josephine! You can read more about them here: https://www.maisondepax.com/wide-plank-oak-floors/

Thank you, Velma! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
Fred is gorgeous! Well done for rescuing him. 🙂
Thank you! He’s like another member of the family now!
Thank you for showing that setting an elegant table doesn’t have to involve stacks of money and time. Thank you for showing that you don’t always have to buy new but that using what you have is OK. Thank you for creating something achievable for everyone, even those with the most hectic schedules who may or may not be renovating houses, homeschooling a bunch of little ones and juggling all the balls to keep businesses afloat. Thank you for keeping it real – it’s beautiful!
You are so welcome, Jayne! I’m glad you found it helpful!
