It’s pretty safe to say the very best part of Spring is the beautiful living flowers for centerpieces. I love having fresh flowers in and around my home. I love the instant brightness they bring and the amazing smells…it’s like bringing sunshine right inside the house.
As I plan my spring and Easter decor I love to plan for flowers anywhere and everywhere I can. While I love a beautiful spring bouquet I especially love finding ways to use fresh flowers inside that I can then transfer outside so they can continue to grow and beautify my home.
First up I have this adorable Easter Table Centerpiece. Using just a few items (many you may already have on hand) you can create the perfect centerpiece for your Easter dinner that will last for years to come because you can take that Tulip bulb and plant it in your yard!
Easter Table Centerpiece Supplies:
(I used a long skinny one I had on hand, you could use any variety)
(or real grass if you plan ahead and grow some – see growing Wheatgrass)
(I used a tulip, but again any flower would work. Dainty primroses and colorful pansies are also great living flowers in centerpieces.)
First gather your supplies, plant your flower in the bucket and then place the bucket in the center of the basket and arrange your fake grass. Once you have the grass arranged place fake eggs in the grass, mine had a hole in one end so I made sure to place the egg so that wouldn’t show.
I used two ceramic bunnies in front of the basket to bring the whole Easter look together. Simple and oh so cute.
Once bunnies and Easter eggs are past being in season it’s time for a new Spring Centerpiece to take over the table.
Spring Table Centerpiece Set Up:
I found this cute blue crate at Target and flipped it upside down then added these little chubby birds and tiny cake stand from Hobby Lobby. The Love Grows Here crate is also from Target and I love that it comes lined with plastic so adding flowers that need watering won’t damage it or anything under it.
I added two geraniums in their little plastic store bought containers, they are a perfect fit!
While I love love love how both of these centerpieces turned out I think my very favorite part is that when I’m ready to make a change for the next season/holiday I get to plant these flowers outside and watch them continue to grow, I don’t have to throw them away in 7-10 days like we have to with cut flowers.
I highly recommend finding ways to bring living flowers into your decor. I promise they’ll put a smile on your face every time you walk past them.
