Create a beautiful Easter table centerpiece with these simple decorating and flower arranging tips!
I love creating beautiful tablescapes for every special occasion! The main focal point of any good tablescape is of course the centerpiece. Today I want to share some quick tips on how to create a beautiful centerpiece. These tips can be applied to any table setting!
Centerpiece Tip 1: Choose your color palette.
My centerpiece most frequently dictates the rest of the table. Allowing the flowers you choose to determine the theme of your table is the easiest way to create a pulled together look. For this table, I was only able to find a few bundles of pink and yellow tulips and wanted a fuller look. That brings me to my second tip!
Centerpiece Tip 2: Feel free to mix faux flowers with the real deal!
Faux flowers and foliage have come such a long way over the years! And while I always prefer to use real over faux, I don’t shy away from using faux when needed. When mixed with real flowers and greenery, the faux stems tend to look even more realistic.
Centerpiece Tip 3: Pick an interesting vase or vessel.
The vessel you choose to display your flowers is just as important as the flowers themselves.
Here are some creative vase ideas:
- old buckets
- pretty waste baskets
- vintage cans
- mason jars
- hurricane vases
- decorative coffee pots
- champagne bucket or ice bucket
- sugar bowls
I enjoy shopping second hand shops to look for interesting vase and vessel ideas. These terracotta canisters were a great find. I loved their shape and the cute French stamp on the front, but I knew I’d get more use out of them if they were white. I used two coats of Fusion Mineral paint to transform the canisters and turn them into white crocks.
Centerpiece Tip 4: Use multiple arrangements, to create one showstopper.
I love to use several arrangements on the table. Sometimes I will spread them out along the length of the table and sometimes I will bunch them together as one centerpiece. I like to use a tray, cutting board, basket, or table runner to help ground my tabletop decor. Here I have used a round wood cheese platter that compliments the woodland texture of the placemats.
Centerpiece Tip 5: Fill in your centerpiece with other decor elements.
To compete the look of your table centerpiece, fill in the centerpiece with other decor elements. Here are some fun ideas for you to play with:
- natural elements (i.e. acorns, pinecones, seashells, flower petals)
- pieces of fruit or vegetables (cut figs and artichokes are gorgeous)
