I’ve never been one to decorate my home based on the season unless it’s the holidays. When it comes to springtime decor, I usually just splurge on some fresh flowers and call it a day. On a recent trip to World Market, however, I stumbled upon the cheeriest pieces for my dining table that instantly brightened up my space, even despite the current gloomy weather — and it’s making spring feel closer than ever.

If, like me, you associate the winter season with bright and bold colors, and springtime with more pastel and muted hues, then these functional decor pieces are a must-have to switch it up and add a pop of color to your home.

The strawberry shape, vibrant coral-red, and delicate hand-beading of this four-set of coasters immediately caught my eye as I passed the dining section of World Market. The white speckles and green stems give off a playful vibe while the lightweight cotton backing protects a drink’s condensation from escaping through to the table. 

I was hesitant to purchase them at first (since I already have coasters that are not only perfect for spring, but also have sentimental value), but I thought these would go great with my new yellow placemats and could also work for my patio that’s in need of some color. Additionally, the price for a set of four coasters seemed pretty unbeatable to pass up at less than $4 per coaster.

For the maximalists who want to indulge in whimsical decor, there is also a $12 placemat version of this coaster so you can dress up your table like a fresh berry basket. Since each coaster and placemat are hand-beaded by artisans in India, no two are alike, making them a truly unique piece of decor for your dining area — plus, kids and guests love them! If you’re really looking to bring that garden vibe indoors, the coasters are also available in a charming bug motif, perfect for summertime.
