YOUR BOOK CLUB WILL LOVE WHEN YOU HOST easy spring tablescapes with Marshalls

Are you in a book club? I just joined one and, let’s be honest, it’s more of a wine club but HEY I support reading and drinking, so it all works out. Last week it was my turn to host and I totally lost it. I had no idea what to do! Should it be themed? Should I make a dish relevant to the narrative? Why am I stressing so hard about this book club thing? THIS IS TOTALLY MY FIRST BOOK CLUB GET-TOGETHER AND NOW EVERYONE KNOWS IT.

Mainly because it gives me an excuse (like I need one) to buy more plants & work towards my dream of living in a greenhouse, but also because it’s like a genre of colors. Not one specific shade, but more greenery in general. It’s like, anything kinda, slightly, potentially green-ish, maybe, if you want. I love it!

Okay, back to book club. So I was stressing about being a cool bookclub host & I did what I always do when I am stressed and in a rut – I went to Marshall’s. Some women love Target, this gal loves Marshall’s. Okay, I digress, so I was walking down the aisles, finding tons of things I couldn’t live without and what did I almost run into? The most fabulous display of turquoise green plates, bowls, and napkins. I mean, the Kate Spade dinner plates were $12 (whhhhat?) and I paired them with these smaller fun plates (that were handmade in Portugal, naturally) to give the setting some fun texture – done & done! I also picked up a stack of blue/green turquoise dish towels – because I love using them as napkins (they cover you lap so well & help give the table a relaxed vibe) and they totally made the whole setting come together. I mean….how fun, right?

Goodbye book club blues! This girl was all set to run home & start setting that table. For an extra little something fun, I added some of my favorite books to each place setting. Can you spot the theme? They are all green…ish! 

Truthfully, this blue green combo is going to be a frequent flyer on the Kelp dining room table this spring. Pink and yellow usually get all the glory when it comes to color themes for spring, but I really think a deeper green turquoise should get in on the action. The color says, “warmer weather is coming so let’s get excited about it!” without going full-blown tropical…you know?

Toss in some greenery, light a few candles, pour the wine cause it’s book club time! 

Literally nothing I ever write has been so witty, so I am just going to sign off & leave y’all with that. 

Happy hosting!
