Spring is almost here, so let’s add some pretty to our homes and dress up our tabletops with some bold and bright centerpieces. These centerpieces are easy to make so in as little as no time at all, you will be able to add a bit of style and flair to your table!
Here’s the how…
Artichoke flowers (top left)
A bouquet of baby artichokes makes a nice alternative to spring flowers such as tulips.
Cut stems short and poke in floral picks or wooden skewers. Fit the pitcher with floral foam to anchor the skewers, then arrange like flowers. To keep your bouquet fresh longer, store in the fridge at night.
Spring greeting (top right)
A clear cookie jar shows off a mix of dyed eggs and a medley of flowers united by their color.
Start with a large-mouth cookie jar or canister, a clear drinking glass that fits inside the jar, dyed hard-cooked eggs and flowers. Center the drinking glass inside the jar and carefully stack the eggs between the glass and jar, alternating egg colors. Fill the glass with water.
Cut the stems of your favorite flowers (we used roses, gerbera daisies, tulips, hyacinths and bells of Ireland) to the desired length and arrange them in the glass.
Ribbon makeover (bottom left)
Give any plain vase a seasonal makeover with a simple band of ribbon. Here, two overlapping ribbons add an extra spring kick to a container of peonies. Attach with double-sided tape.
Carryout bouquet (bottom left)
Carryout boxes made of frosted plastic become elegant containers for floral centerpieces. Place spring blooms such as daffodils and tulips inside a short, water-filled glass before setting in the box.
