Last Minute Spring Centerpieces

Centerpieces play a big part in our dining rooms, entries, and kitchen tables. They set the mood or theme like a Pinata. The bar was low at our house when our kids were growing up. Our dining room was more likely to have a tennis racquet or a 12-pack of Charmin on the 7 1/2′ table.

As our nest emptied with college, study abroad, and first jobs, our dining room table was bored with seven feet of space and no purpose.

Our table needed a little fun. I love to create no-fuss centerpieces that can be repurposed into a different centerpiece with a few tweaks.

SPRING CENTERPIECES YOU CAN MAKE IN MINUTES

Let’s take a look. The only thing you need to know about me is I like quick, pretty and simple centerpieces. I am also thrifty so once I come up with an idea I duplicate it for other holidays and seasons.

Here are my staples for super easy centerpieces

Wreaths

Wreaths are the easiest centerpiece because they do all the work. And, you can pop a candle in the wreath’s middle and you have soft lighting.

It is a buy-one-get-two-uses type of purchase.

Here is a grapevine wreath as a base with strands of garland clover ( you know the stuff at the bottom of the seasonal storage bin).

. It looks like it came in from a blustery day. I call it an earthy centerpiece vibe for a casual table.

For this wreath-turned centerpiece, I added faux carrots I found at Hobby Lobby and the dollar-ish section at Target.

The wreath went from the door to the table for Easter Sunday brunch.

Lanterns

If you saw my Easter centerpiece there is nothing easier than a glass vase or hurricane. Just fill it and forget it. The glass makes the table feel lighter, not so heavy.

The perfect look for spring.

I made this centerpiece in the amount of time it takes to unseal a plastic gallon-size bag and dump the speckled eggs into the center of a wreath or in a hurricane or glass pitcher.

Speaking of glass pitchers…

This is a good reminder to rethink your serving accessories as decor. If you have a glass water pitcher that sits in your hutch and comes out to a party or a family brunch get it out of the pantry.

Fill it with oranges, limes, and lemons for a fun centerpiece.

PINK TULIPS

Tulips in a mason jar (or your favorite seasonal flowers) make a beautiful centerpiece.

Herbs

What says spring more than fresh herbs? Create a cute centerpiece for an outdoor table. Grab three types of herbs and wrap in brown paper bags.
