Create an Easy Blooming Centerpiece for Easter

I have a quick & easy method to create a centerpiece for a spring or Easter table! It takes about 10 minutes to create once you have your supplies gathered.

To create this spring centerpiece I used a rustic wooden box / caddy that I used for a rustic harvest centerpiece for Thanksgiving. You can use any kind of wooden box, crate, basket or tray to build your centerpiece.

I lined the caddy with plastic then added some pots of spring flowering bulbs~ hyacinths and daffodils that I picked up at the garden center at Walmart. Large pots of fragrant hyacinths and cheery daffodils were $5 and mini pots were $1.

The bulbs can be planted in the garden to enjoy next year after the blooms fade.

Water your flowering bulbs so they’re moist and remove them from their plastic pots. Arrange the bulbs in your box or caddy so they appear to be planted and growing together. I added two small pots of variegated ivy on opposites ends, that I also picked up at Walmart.

Next I added a layer of sheet moss to cover the soil. I soaked the sheet moss in water to re-hydrate it, squeezing out the excess water and then piecing the moss together. Soaking the moss makes it look a little more “alive” and makes it easier to piece together. It also provides some moisture for the bulbs or flowers that you’re covering.

Add some dyed or faux Easter eggs, or tuck in a bird’s nest for a finishing touch or accent for your centerpiece.

I used the same technique with a vintage metal picnic tin, adding a layer of Spanish moss on tophere.

You can do this with any combination of flowers from the garden center or grocery store!

You can find some easy tips and tricks for building a blooming Easter basket or a centerpiece using pots of flowers, here.

If spring had a smell, it would be hyacinths!

    Mary, your design and color “eye” is admirable and the flower arrangements and blooming baskets/containers are inspiring! It’s a treat to see your artistry and I relish it! Your Easter basket arrangement from a year or so ago is my all time favorite! Thank you for sharing!

    So Pretty!! Our greenhouses are not stocked yet, I tried stopping at two the other day. It’s still a bit too early to plant anything here yet – so they wait. I will have to live vicariously through all you southern ladies until our weather finally warms up for good. Love Love Love the picnic tin filled with flowers!!! Too Cute!

    Brilliant! So easy and so very pretty!!

    This is absolutely beautiful and would last longer than cut flowers (plus, you can plant the bulbs later). What a lovely statement for an Easter dinner table!

    Perfect for any any Spring or Easter table. Casual yet it will complement the finest of place settings. You always prove that creating a beautiful centerpiece can be easy and fun! Have a great weekend Mary!
