In keeping with the progression of the season, I’m opening up my Spring box to see what treasures we have stored away and what can be brought out now to enliven our Spring seasonal table.
The Nature or Seasonal Table is a living creative space, to be renewed and reimagined as your inspiration allows.
Children love to ‘rediscover’ all the beautiful components stored in your seasonal box.
The Seasonal Table is a special place where the treasures of the season are gathered in an imaginative setting, woven together with other elements of the season’s mood, light, colours and gestures.
The table helps to connect us to the progress of the year. It nourishes our inner life to awaken ourselves to the rhythms around us, the day and night, the sway of the tides, the patterns of the cosmos, festivals and celebrations that come around again and again.
Children love to gather all that is abundant and beautiful from nature, to place them on the table as part of refreshing it throughout the season.
The seasonal table may also be created to celebrate other important religious and cultural festivals throughout the year.
There are so many ways to express the season! We gathered up some special items from Honeybee to develop this Spring table and we have included some photos below to show how it came together bit by bit:
We began with the Magic Wood Fairy Forest Home/Seasonal Stand, added a pretty Lavender Sarah’s silk (pale pink and soft apple green and white would also evoke the beginning of Spring), and then some Ostheimer farmyard fences. The blocks are placed to create some height for visual interest.
A Grimm’s branch candleholder and 100% beeswax candle with a rabbit and tulip decoration, a Seccorell postcard (Spring Lamb) and the Grimm’s Weather building set (sun, wind, rain, clouds) complete the picture . . . for the moment!
Next week we will post another Spring table with a different feel altogether.
We also love the Year and a Day magazine just right for Spring (Issue 1) : Eggs Birds and Nests. This is an excellent quality publication, inviting children to explore, create and connect with nature through activities and stories. Also: Year and a Day (Issue 5): Growing from Seed
And have a look at the “Wild” range of books full of wonderful ideas for getting creative with nature’s bounty:
