I love to make quick, easy, and cheap centerpieces. The seasons are short and often pricey so I had fun pulling together this spring centerpiece for the dining room. I love our dining room table. I shared this love letter to our dining room table. It is like a member of the family and deserves a spring centerpiece to give it a little love.

The challenge for my centerpiece was to keep our dining room table clean. Most days our dining room table looks like the conveyor belt at the Kroger checkout. On any given day there is a revolving collection of items like the 12-pack of Charmin that nobody thinks to take it upstairs.

For years, my boys used the dining room table for their tennis racquets and court shoes.

So now? My dining room is ready for a spring tablescape sans the Target bag with toiletries.

I switched a few things from my first pass at this centerpiece. I wish I had a smaller bunny, but I am on a self-imposed spending hiatus. So I used what I had and I swear I am more creative when I shop my house.


I switched out the china plates that just did not work in the original plan.

So I pulled out my Valentine appetizer plates and stuck a bird’s nest on top. Nobody will be the wiser until I serve dessert.

I grabbed this birdhouse from my home office collection of tiny houses (Realtor Life). Some of you may remember this birdhouse from last year’s table.

For my dining room table, I added spring eggs. I love the pastels this time of year.

Finally, I added a few cloth napkins, in a spring shade of blue. I hope I will remember to use these at Easter. ;0) I found them on sale at Williams-Sonoma at the end of last summer.

I am falling in love with cloth napkins.
