I love decorating for spring and planning for Easter! Simple and easy Spring–Easter Tablescapes and decor; these are simple and inexpensive ideas; many using items you may already have around your home. I love Easter, for all it signifies, most importantly New Life in Christ!
I love putting together a pretty centerpiece, it’s usually how I begin my tablescape and then my inspiration the rest follows in color, look and style.
For the below centerpiece, I harvested some of my hyacinths, purchased alstroemeria and snipped some fresh lilac branches. Placed it in a mason jar filled with water, inside of a pretty rustic pot and covered the top with fresh moss.
You don’t have to spend a lot to make a pretty arrangement. I always look in the floral discount section of our market, I regularly find flowers that still have a 4-7 days in them for $1-3 a bunch. Also don’t be afraid to mix nice quality silk flowers with real ones!
Simple Steps to Create this Centerpiece
- A simple square vase
- Insert a small mason jar (or a jelly jar or old candle jar) insert into center of vase, should be slightly lower than your vase.
- Tuck paper shreds (change the color to go with your tablescape) between mason jar and vase, sprinkling in Cadbury Mini Eggs, Jelly Beans, or tiny faux eggs.
- Carefully fill center mason jar with water.
- Snip your stems with floral or kitchen shears or a sharp kitchen knife
- Arrange primary flower first, then fill in with filler flower. I used tulips and spider mums. I left the tulips long, so they arched out from the vase, adding visual interest and whimsy; be sure to strip any leaves that will be in water.
- Try other spring flowers that are cheap and easy to arrange as well, like; hyacinth, chamomile, alstroemeria, hydrangea, ranunculus, and daffodils.
- I placed it all on a nest of natural paper shreds.
Using artificial forsythia (you could certainly use real), I placed a smaller vase of similar proportions inside a larger vase. Carefully poured in some river pebbles (between the two vases) and used faux eggs to anchor in my forsythia branches along with some pretty artificial snowball flowers.
Pretty easy! Flowers are such a cheap way to decorate!
I placed a candle in an old mason jar, tied with a seasonal ribbon and you can see I filled some egg cups filled with jelly beans for additional pops of color and Voilà beautiful, easy, Easter table!
I had some cute Easter baking cups with Easter picks, but instead of making cupcakes, I filled them with colorful Easter candies, adding a pretty, bright, complimentary pop of color to each place setting and of course chocolate, in case anyone goes hungry! wink-wink!
Pretty cute don’t you think? And easy, that’s what I’m about, easy, pretty, sunny, pops of color!
