We’re just a few days into March, and we’re already yearning for everything green, eagerly prepping for outdoor gatherings, packing for spring break travels and seeking new ways to freshen our homes. There’s no better way to welcome spring than with a fresh list of 25 March FINDS.
FOR YOUR SPRING TABLE
White linen napkins
Before you can really roll out your spring tablescape, it’s essential to carefully consider all the pieces of the spread. We know that we can always trust white linen and Ashley Meier Linens + Interiors. These classic napkins are available at the Green Hills store for $31.50 each.
Wooden salad set
Yes, backyard party season is coming, and we can hardly wait! It’s important to solidify a great set of serving utensils and dishware. This fork, spoon and wooden bowls set is the perfect vehicle for serving and enjoying your bright and delicious spring salads. Get the set of one large and four small bowls for $32 and the fork and spoon combo for $13 at OAK Nashville. Happy hosting!
Teacups and saucers
Tea time anyone? These gorgeous antique cup-and-saucer sets from GasLamp Too exude the freshness of spring. These are just a few in a much larger collection of antique china at the antiques mall. Starting at $10 (for the cup and saucer together), the variety of designs and colors will make for some difficult (but fun) choices!
FOR SOMETHING GREEN
We’ve been craving the sight of blooms and greenery for months now, and a trip to Bates Nursery does not disappoint. Our trusted green-thumbed friends told us that the Helleborus, also known as the “Lenten Rose” is a great March FIND because they are one of the few plants in bloom in early spring. Nab these gorgeous potted perennials for $19.99.
