There's still snow on the ground where I live, so I'm doing all I can to bring a breath of spring indoors. These easy spring centerpieces do just that. They're pretty enough for parties and simple enough to make any day special.
These first ideas pair flowers with fruit. Doing so is more economical as they make the flowers go a long way, and, of course, the fruit is edible.
All we need is a big terracotta saucer for this one.
Surprising and super cute, these oranges as vases are it.
If you have a hurricane on hand, this one is even simpler, and there's no flower 'waste' afterward.
Next we're going to take a look at projects that utilize serve ware we might have on hand.
Have a compote? Then this idea from Martha is not only lovely, it will give height to a tablescape.
No compote? No worries. These inverted wineglasses do double duty as floral displays and candle holders.
I'd buy eggcups just to copy this idea from Martha Stewart. Soooo sweet.
Creative re-use dominates our discussion next. Ordinary terracotta pots are give a coat of white paint and ordained with real grass in this easy project.
So pretty and delicate, this project uses multiple, identical vases, but glass juice or tea bottles would work too! (Who doesn't love 'shopping' in their recycling bin?)
Tin cans have never looked cuter than they do here:
Not sure if you'd want to actually use USED take out containers for this one--or maybe you would. Anyway, take out containers, like the ones pictured below can be found at craft stores or the dollar stores for a buck or so.
