Easy Spring Centerpieces


I LOVE springtime, and the best part is that I can get out all of my spring décor. I also love spring because of the colors. Everything is so vibrant and cheery. It’s so fun to put out flowers, especially (and only) fresh ones. Silk flowers, in my opinion, aren’t as pretty as fresh ones, plus fresh ones smell so much better! Who doesn’t love spring?!


            It’s a lot of fun for me to mix and match décor accessories, and everything that I’ve used for these centerpieces are things that I have at home. All of these items can be found at local stores, and can easily be replicated with similar items. Beside each photo, I’ve provided a list of where I’ve purchased everything to make it easier to find! Some of the stores are local, but like I said, can easily be replicated to make your own unique look! Be sure to check online too, there are some great deals out there.

Tricycle
         What I love most about this tricycle centerpiece is that it is so unique and different. It’s also turquoise, which I am obsessed with right now! The grapevine keeps your eyes moving around the whole piece so you see it all. Plus, the greenery adds so much and really complements the greenery growing outside. Every morning I hear birds outside, and so I had to add the bird nest and bird to this centerpiece. It would seem wrong without it!

·      Tray: This is actually all black with a glass piece on top. I put down a leopard colored paper under the glass to give it a different look! Tray is from Hobby Lobby.

Watering Can
          There are actually two watering can pictures. I couldn’t decide which I liked better, so I put them both up! I re-added the moss ball and grapevine to add a little something extra to the floral. The flowers are so pretty, and the best thing is that they were growing right outside my house. Don’t go spend a ton of money of flowers, just go pick some fresh ones!

·      Turquoise and black tray: I actually found this at a flea market, and refinished it to be black and turquoise. Any decorative frame could easily work and look just as good!

Bird Cage
            The color of this birdcage just pops, and I LOVE the color yellow! The white and pink flower flow well with the birdcage as well, and just makes it so much more attractive.  I wanted a little something to put into the cage, and I found these great decorative balls at Hobby Lobby. They are blue and brown, and have different textures for contrast. The simplicity of this is so fantastic, and is perfect to last from spring to summer!

Candlesticks
          Candlesticks are always a fun to add to anywhere in the home. I prefer getting 3, because it’s easier to arrange them. These are especially fun because they are vibrant and full of color. The iridescent quality of the candlesticks is fantastic because it really lets the light show through. To do something different, instead of using candles, I placed decorative brown balls on top of the candlesticks. Putting more of the balls on the actual tray ties together the balls on the top really well.

Pig
          I love this pig so much! I think he is adorable and looks great in any kitchen (or anywhere for that matter).  He needed something small beside him to add volume to the centerpiece, so I added the moss ball, which I love because it matched his green bow! The floral just enhanced it even more by giving it color and adding a little something extra.
