Easy 5-Minute Easter Centerpiece

The countdown to Easter is underway and I have an easy centerpiece for your table that you can throw together in under 5 minutes. . . best of all, no flower arranging skills required!

I started with a tureen (without its lid) and a $5 pot of hyacinths from the garden center at Walmart. The hyacinths can be planted in the garden to be enjoyed next spring after you’ve enjoyed the blooms indoors. You can use the bowl or basket of your choice for this easy arrangement instead of a tureen or potted flowering plant. You can usually find small pots of azaleas, Easter Lilies and flowering bulbs at the grocery store the week before Easter.

Water your pot of bulbs well and drop them in your container, paper and all. I topped the bulbs with decorative Easter grass I had from a basket. My “grass” is actually shredded paper and adds a festive Easter touch while concealing the soil and paper liner on the hyacinths.

Tuck in some decorative eggs to nest in among the flowers. I added a vintage-inspired “Easter Greetings” postcard.

You can find more Spring and Easter Centerpieces and Table Inspiration, HERE.

These bunnies rowing their boat of Easter eggs is a favorite Easter postcard of mine for obvious reasons. 🚢🐰;)

    Beautiful and so easy peasy! Will definitely use this idea.I like using soup tureen all seasons of the year for centerpieces. After Easter I will use it with moss and white orchids and put it on my living room coffee table. Happy Easter to you and yours.

    Beautiful, Mary. I have a large cabbage tureen that I thought I’d use to do this. Just need to go buy some hyacinths.
    Happy Easter to you, sweet friend!

    Unless you are selling RL tablecloths on eBay, someone is stealing photos from your site. Look at eBay auction 273175702640. I’m pretty sure that’s your photo…

      Thanks for looking out for me Barb! I sent the seller a message to remove. ;)
