MATERIALS FOR A SPRING CENTERPIECE
Here’s what you will need to make a pretty spring centerpiece…
- glass container
- faux flowers
Here’s the great thing about recipe decorating… you can use what you have to create the look!
If you don’t have a pedestal bowl how about finding a cake plate or an interesting dough bowl or a pretty bowl you love to make the centerpiece in?
And instead of a boxwood wreath how about a small grapevine wreath or even a garland! Just wind it around the bowl.
And if you don’t have a glass hurricane how about any glass container. A ball jar perhaps!
MAKING AN ARRANGEMENT OF YOUR OWN
Once you see how this easy-peasy spring centerpiece is put together it will be so easy for you to do again and again!
CREATING A FOUNDATION
A beautiful arrangement always starts with a good foundation.
For this centerpiece, everything really hinges around the wreath. It centers the candle and keeps the flowers in place.
Start by putting a candle (I use a battery-operated one) in a glass container and placing it in the middle of a white pedestal bowl.
Then place the wreath in the bowl as shown.
The wreath centers the candle and creates a foundation for adding flowers. And it’s so attractive too.
Start arranging the flowers around the bowl. The wreath really helps to anchor the flowers in the arrangement and it fills the bowl. Doesn’t it look so pretty?
ADDING FLOWERS TO THE SPRING ARRANGEMENT
To fill in the arrangement I used flowers from my “stash”! My stash is in the basement and is a mishmosh of all kinds of bits and pieces of flowers!
They are nothing really special but when they were put together I think all worked!
Start with a couple larger flowers and tuck them into the wreath. I had two faux Queen Ann’s Lace that I put on either side of the pedestal.
Next, add a few medium blooms around the bowl, spacing them out. I found some green mum-type flowers to use. I liked their look against the green boxwood wreath.
The last thing to add to the spring arrangement is what I like to call “fluff”. Fluff is what you add at the end of any type of decorating that takes it from nice to OH, THAT’S SO PRETTY!!!!
The small flowers come next. They are the “fluff”! I love flowers or twigs and sticks that are wispy and feel visually light! Arrange the “fuff” around the centerpiece filling in any bare spaces. Super easy!!!
A WORD ABOUT FLORAL “FLUFF”
Years and years ago I found long branches with little white blooms on them on a major sale. So I brought home a lot of them. And am I glad I did! I knew they would be very useful!
From cutting apart the branches over the years I had a handful of “fluff”. And these little twigs of white blooms were the perfect size to add the the arrangement.
Do you have a stash of floral bits and pieces? Floral fluff? It’s amazing what you can do with them. So, if you don’t why not get a clear plastic box and start collecting flowers and sticks and twigs and fluffy things! Start your own box of floral fluff!
Just think of all the amazing arrangements you can think up using this simple decorating recipe!
Once you have all the elements to create an arrangement, you can put it together in just a few minutes!
Here’s an easy guide so you can make a beautiful centerpiece of your own for spring or any time of year! It’s a free printable just for YOU!
