Spring Centerpieces {Part 1}

I’m so excited to share my new {and easy} Spring Centerpiece designs with you!

Between now and Easter — April 4 — I’ll showcase a variety of colorful creations that I hope will give you ideas for those upcoming Spring celebrations, whether you’re having a big event or small gathering.  I decided to do this because my ‘Colorful Spring Centerpieces’ story from 2009 is one of the most visited posts on my blog, so I wanted to give you a first-hand look at what I’ve been working on for this year’s spring events.

This first arrangement of tulips and hyacinth was inspired by ribbon-tied wedding bouquets.  I wrapped two types of ribbon around a glass vase, and where the ends came together I applied acrylic flower decals.  Easy and elegant!

For a super-contemporary look {and a little more bling}, this next centerpiece is minimal but is still packed with style.

This crystal-encrusted ‘vase’ is actually a votive holder that I bought last Christmas.  They were widely available during the holidays, so perhaps you have something similar.

Adding pompom mums and candles in the same shade of green makes a nice contrast to the lilac.  This is a very simple centerpiece that you can multiply and display on mini-platters.

I’m just getting started, so be sure to check back and see what’s new and fresh for your Spring table!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Kelly! It’s nice to *see* a new face…and be introduced to another someone who, not only shares my name, but loves color!!! Your flowers arrangements are lovely. Cheery and bright, just like floral design should be, in my opinion. Looking forward to reading your future posts…
    Thanks again!!
