TREND: Greenery table decoration with vegetables

Greenery, the Pantone color of 2017 plays a significant role in today’s post. The bright green color has been on everyone’s lips since the beginning of the year. And what would be better than a greenery table decoration with vegetables ?! I had seen table decorations with fresh fruit and vegetables here and there. I had to try it myself!

Spring gives off some lush green vegetables. I finally opted for 2 oak leaf salads, which look wonderful in the middle of the table. By the way, salad is best kept in damp newspaper wrapped in the vegetable compartment of the fridge. For the Greenery table decoration, I put the heads of lettuce on 2 small plates, on which I previously put a little water. So they last a little longer. I placed a bunch of spring onions in glass jars on each side of the table. You can also fill it with a little water. I spread fresh artichokes and limes around it. The beautiful lanterns in matching green from DEPOT bring cosiness to the table. The matching outdoor candles are available in light green.

When I saw the plates from the “Botanic” series in our DEPOT store in Braunschweig, I was completely blown away. Isn’t this leaf motif adorable? And it fits sooo great with the vegetable table decoration! If you would like to put your guests in certain places or put a smile on their faces, try my little DIY: table cards with rosemary sprig. Super easy & quick to implement. You can find the instructions below. You can spice up simple cloth napkins with wide gift ribbons. Simply roll up the napkins and tie a ribbon around them with the gift ribbon.


  • a neutral tablecloth in cream, gray or white
  • Plates with green decor, for example from the Botanic series by DEPOT
  • Drinking and wine glasses made of green or transparent glass
  • Striped paper straws in green and white
  • cloth napkins
  • Ribbon linen
  • Lantern glass in green
  • Outdoor candle in green
  • Glass jars for e.g. spring onions
  • green vegetables such as lettuce, spring onions, artichokes, limes, kale, bell peppers, green asparagus, chard, romanesco etc.


  • white photo cardboard
  • fresh rosemary
  • Perforator
  • felt-tip pen


Cut the photo cardboard into a rectangle in any size. Punch a hole in the upper third on the right and left. Cut the rosemary branch a little longer than the place card and push it through the two holes. Write the name of the table card with a felt pen. Place either on or next to the plate.
