Spring Flower Arrangement

Don’t you just love spring? The days are starting to get a little longer. The sun starts to shine a little more. The temperature warms, the grass turns green again, and spring blooms start popping in the yard.

Easter is just a few weeks away, and it will be here before we know it!

Spring is the perfect time to inject pops of pastel colors and a touch of whimsy in your home decor. These creative Easter centerpiece ideas feature plenty of fresh blooms and vibrant color to make your Easter brunch table extra special.

Embracing Colorful Traditions with Your Easter Decor

I love setting a pretty table for any occasion, and Easter is the perfect time for going all in with beautiful spring color! As the season transitions and nature bursts forth with new life, it’s only fitting to reflect this vibrancy in our table decor.

Set an Easter Table

I’m all about fresh spring flowers, adorable bunnies, and pretty colorful Easter eggs! I love gorgeous table linens and pretty blue and white dishes. And this spring, I’m loving and all things coral and lilac and blue and green!

As you can tell, I’m a color kind of gal, and I love to set an Easter table full of beautiful color to celebrate this special day!

How do you decorate an Easter table?

I add several different elements and layers to our Easter tablescape. I like to “gather and scatter” lots of decor along our table to create a pretty centerpiece for our table.

Crafting Your Color Scheme for Your Easter Decorations

The first thing I always do is decide on the color scheme for our Easter table, and there’s nothing like fresh flowers to get your creative color juices flowing!  

Choosing an Easter table color palette can sometimes be hard for me to decide on, because I love LOTS of different color possibilities!! I often let the flowers available in our local grocery store help determine the color scheme.

These pretty flowers from Trader Joe’s were full of soft, peachy corals, lilac, and vibrant greens, and I fell in love with them just imagining all of the gorgeous easter centerpieces I could create!

I always include some blue and white in my color scheme. It blends the colorful tablescape with our blue dining room color scheme.

Creating a Charming Easter Centerpiece

Take this opportunity to create a unique arrangement for your guests to enjoy!

Crafting with Cabbage: 

For a focal point of our tablescape, I created a centerpiece using cabbage as the vase for our flowers. It’s a fun way to add a little fresh spring green to your dining table decor. 

Easter Cabbage Centerpiece

To create the cabbage centerpiece, tear off a couple of outer cabbage leaves and set aside.

Then, use a glass to mark off the size of the hole you need to cut in your cabbage.

Carefully, cut away the cabbage from the inner hole, and then insert your glass. Fill it with water and floral preservative, and then arrange your flowers.

I always start with the green filler to create a base, then begin adding the colorful flowers.

I love how these vibrant colors look in the cabbage! I placed the cabbage centerpiece on a white pedestal bowl to add height to our Easter tablescape.

Adding Height and Interest with Spring Topiaries

I added a couple of spring topiaries in urns to the table decor.

One important tip when buying topiaries for your decor is to always buy two. You will be so happy you have two matching topiaries to use around your home. They’re perfect for dining tables, mantels, buffets, and sofa tables.

I added some pretty green ribbon to the topiaries and placed some Easter eggs and faux limes at the base to carry out the playful Easter theme and vibrant color scheme.

Gathering and Scattering Decor along Your Tablescape

I gathered up Easter eggs and scattered them along our Easter tablescape. I’m using coral, green, and cream eggs to compliment the flowers. I also added some faux limes to the mix of decorative eggs. I love the fresh green that the faux limes add to the color scheme.

​Creating several smaller floral arrangements to scatter along the center of your table makes a colorful statement. Use small urns or bud vases to achieve this look, and add flowers that complement your larger cabbage arrangement. 

This small blue and white vase full of roses is the perfect compliment to the larger focal centerpiece.

You could also gather and scatter other smaller Easter or spring-themed decorative items to create a festive look.

Adding Enchanting Bunnies

It’s time to bring out the adorable bunnies! I love using little white ceramic bunnies along our centerpiece for a fun, whimsical touch.

This little bunny and cabbage sugar and creamer are some of my favorite things that I scored from T.J. Maxx a few years ago. It makes its annual appearance in our home every spring. I love the fresh green color of the cabbage, and they look perfect on my little white tray.

Choosing the Perfect Table Linens

Mix and match your linens for an unviting spring table full of color and pattern. I scored these floral napkins from T.J. Maxx a couple of years ago, and they’re perfect with this vibrant pastel color palette. 

When it comes to table linens, you may not always be able to find the number of napkins you need for all of your table settings at stores such as T.J. Maxx. This was the case for me when I purchased these printed napkins, so I combined a couple of different patterns on our table.

I’m using a cute blue and white check paired with these pretty floral napkins, and I just love how pretty they look together. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your table linens if you don’t have complete sets. It just makes for a more colorful and creative dining room table!

Crafting Beautiful Place Settings

You can apply that same mix and match principle to your place settings of dishes and chargers as well! I didn’t have six of these pretty blue and white floral bowls, so I used four of them and then used a couple of Blue Willow fruit bowls in the two remaining place settings. 

The blue and white bowls paired with my solid white plates, green chargers, and woven placemats complete the Easter place settings.  My grandmother’s delicate stemware rounds out each place setting with a vintage touch.

I love the way our Easter tablescape came together!  I hope one thing you take away is that you shouldn’t be afraid to mix and match and gather what you have to create a beautiful Easter centerpiece.
