Spring centerpieces combine the fresh blooms of the season with attractive vases and baskets. Whether you have store-bought flowers on hand or blossoms from your own garden, you will be able to find a unique idea in this slideshow.
50+ Fresh Spring Centerpiece Ideas to Give Your Table a Charming Look for the Whole Season
Many of these centerpieces take advantage of different kinds of containers for flowers and for the vases themselves. From watering cans to handmade twig and straw vase covers, these ideas use a lot of imagination.
Using a reclaimed kitchen drawer or low-sided box to contain the vases is a popular concept. Some of these boxes are hand- or vinyl-lettered with inspirational words like “Love” and “Gather”. These boxes could also be decorated with family names or favorite quotes.
Some of these designs have embellishments like artificial birds, eggs, and butterflies. These ideas are cute and would appeal to children. One truly original option combines a clear glass vase with a bunch of bright orange carrots and flowers.
Mason jars are another popular trend. Whether painted or left as is, mason jars can provide a country touch to your centerpiece. One original idea involves two mason jars tied to each other with twine.
Whatever your crafting level, you will find the perfect centerpiece for your spring table. Delight your guests with the beauty of the season.
1. Spring Centerpiece Ideas with Drawers
If there are old drawers lying around without cabinets, they can be repurposed into flower holders. This drawer with its cup pull has been white washed and filled with delicate flowers with ruffly pink petals. They are set off by bright green foliage and spikes of buds just about to burst into bloom.
2. A Rainbow of Tulips in Vases
One of the more charming centerpiece ideas is to fill porcelain heirloom vases with multicolored tulips and set them right down the center of the table. This gives the table the atmosphere of an entire field of tulips in shades of gold, purple, pink and white.
3. Mini Daffodils in Watering Cans
In another of the good centerpiece ideas, daffodils are not only placed in old fashioned watering cans but can actually sprout from them. It’s best to put daffodil bulbs into potting soil in the early winter for a spring blossoming. In this case, the arrangements are grouped in an old wooden tray with a bird’s nest with a single egg.
4. Rich Pink Blooms with Eggs
Continuing with the egg theme, this arrangement uses multicolored eggs as anchors for a glass vase of pink daises, pink tulips, pink roses and lavender-pink lilac. The pink of the flowers is complemented by the fresh green of the leaves and a few judiciously placed spikes of bells of Ireland.
5. Bold Silk Flowers in Painted Pots
Flowers don’t have to be real to contribute to lovely centerpiece ideas. One of the better centerpiece ideas is to place silk flowers in pastel colored pots. In this case, magenta, yellow and red silk poppies have been placed in blue, pink and yellow pots. Spaghnum moss not only hides the anchoring florist’s foam but gives texture to the display.
6. Grass Planters with Lovely Butterflies
Centerpiece ideas can be very simple. In this arrangement, grass has been arranged in wooden planters and sprinkled here and there with paper butterflies in realistic, butterfly-like colors. The grass can be artificial, but real grass is easy to grow in a planter. Attach the butterflies to florist’s pins and simply stick them here and there among the grass.
7. Flowers in a Teacup Under Glass
Victorians knew the value and beauty of having flowers under glass cloches. In this display, pink gloxinias and sphagnum moss have been arranged in an old-fashioned porcelain teacup on its saucer and placed on a tray. Then, the whole thing is covered with the glass cloche. Balls of light green moss soften the bottom of the tray.
9. Tulips in a Grass Basket
Another of the centerpiece ideas is to gather warm colored tulips in a basket that’s covered with grass. Artificial grass may be best because it retains its color over a long time and allows the basket to be reused. This arrangement can’t help but remind the viewer of Easter. The hot pink tulips are joined by purple and white hyacinths and the pink and purple flowers of azaleas.
10. Upcycled Cupcake Display with Pearls
One of the more grand centerpiece ideas is this tiered display on trays originally made to display cupcakes. The bottom is filled with white and mauve roses and lisanthus with sprays of lavender. The middle platter has single blossoms and lavender sprays in gold cupcake papers, while the top platter holds a teacup filled with roses, lavender and tulips. All of the tiers are connected with strings of pearls.
11. Whimsical Carrot Base Flower Arrangement
Just because it’s spring doesn’t mean centerpiece ideas can’t be somewhat autumnal. This display brings the oranges, golds and reds of autumn and indeed, the orange flowers are tied to a bouquet of carrots that can be seen through the large, round glass vase. Don’t be afraid to use vegetables in a centerpiece. Besides the carrots, this arrangement hold a whimsical bunch of Brussels sprouts.
12. Geometric Vase with Forsythia Branches
Some gardeners come to think that the abundant golden blossoms of forsythia are too much, but this arrangement is just right. The golden blossoms are simply arranged in a vase with a geometrical design, and the vase itself is placed on a blue cake platter on another platter filled with lemons still attached to their leaves.
13. White Multi-Level Pitchers with Chrysanthemums
Varying the levels of the display is one of the more creative centerpiece ideas. In this design, white ceramic pitchers are filled with different types of chrysanthemums and carnations. The pitchers themselves are arranged on footed glass trays of different heights and accompanied by moss. A bird’s nest adorns the top tray.
14. Spring Centerpiece Ideas with Twigs and Twine
The designer of this arrangement used twigs held together with twine to hide the container that holds masses of viburnum flowers and their leaves. Placing the arrangement on slab of a tree stump and placing an Easter bunny and a pewter bowl of nonpareils beside it proclaims that it’s springtime for sure.
15. Simple Cherry Blossoms in a Mason Jar
Here is another of the simpler centerpiece ideas. Go outside and snip a few branches full of cherry blossoms, and put them in blue-tinted mason jars. That is all. Of course, a person will need permission to gather the branches if the tree isn’t theirs, and they should bring a bucket of water to put the branches into immediately after they’re cut.
16. Pails with Adorable Birds and Nests
In this arrangement, three buckets of galvanized metal are filled with baby’s tears, a hanging plant with tiny green leaves. Tiny birds with tiny nests, eggs or a chick are nestled into the greenery. The birds have realistic feathers and coloring, and the eggs just might be made of chocolate and cocoa.
17. Cutout Vellum Daisies in a Metal Box
Centerpiece ideas can involve the whole family to bring to fruition. In this playful decoration, daisies are cut out of different colored vellum and stuck in a metal basket with grass-green packing paper. The orange centers of the daisies look to be made of old identical buttons, and their stems are playful, fat blue and white straws.
18. A Reclaimed Drawer with River Stones and Flowers
Another reclaimed drawer has been painted baby blue and filled with river rocks. Ceramic containers of plants have been nestled into the rocks on either side of a simple glass jar full of white and yellow daffodils, magenta gerbera daisies and grape hyacinth. The jar’s simplicity has been enlivened by a band made of paper lace decorated with a button of faux pearl and sequins.
19. High Pedestal Bowl with Mixed Flowers
Designers of centerpieces shouldn’t be nervous of mixing flowers or materials of certain colors with flowers or materials of colors on the opposite side of the color wheel. In this case, purple-blue grape yacht is mixed with small blossoms of orange ranunculus with green centers. The tidy, bright green stems of both flowers can be seen in the clear glass of the pedestal bowl.
20. Lampshade Basket with Vibrant Pink Blossoms
This arrangement simply bursts with great, blowzy rose blossoms in white and pink coupled with cheerful masses of pink phlox. These colors are one of the centerpiece ideas that let everyone know spring has arrived. The outside container may or may not be an upside down lampshade, but it has an interesting pattern of what seems like woven willow wood.
21. Straw Vase with Ferns and Tulips
Centerpiece ideas can incorporate materials that no one has considered before. In this case, the container is made of pink and white straws held together with raffia. The flowers are pink double tulips and fronds of Boston fern. Boston fern, a favorite houseplant since Victorian times, may be a plant not usually thought of for spring arrangements.
22. Country Milk Pan and Mason Jars
Mason jars are good for so many things, including floral arrangements. In this display, mason jars made of dreamily blue tinted glass are grouped in a simple metal basin and filled with wildflowers. The yellow and white runner on the table reflects the yellow of the buttercups and the white of the basin.
23. Lettered Drawer with White Mason Jars
This very long, lettered drawer is filled with white mason jars that are in turn filled with huge white and salmon colored peony blossoms, white stephanotis and cream colored butterfly bush. Long enough to take up much of the top rail of the porch balustrade, it makes for a gloriously welcoming display.
24. Unique Spring Centerpiece Ideas with Daffodils
This centerpiece uses the flowers themselves as part of the container. In this arrangement, frilly daffodils are wrapped around the outside of the container and held together with twine. They are anchored in a glass bowl with river rocks that are watered to keep the flowers fresh. At the top is a bowl of candy eggs.
25. Mason Jars in an Unpainted Drawer
In this simple arrangement, a long, rough-hewn unpainted drawer holds plain Mason jars. The Mason jars, which are different heights, hold pink snapdragons. Snapdragons come in a variety of colors and are easy to grow in the garden. This is a lovely arrangement to place on a rustic table in a dining room that gets lots of sunlight.
26. Vintage Handled Box with Boxwood Sprigs
Another of the centerpiece ideas is to put leftover things to use. In this arrangement, an old, white-painted wooden tool box has been filled with boxwood branches. These branches could have easily been what was left over from a morning of trimming the boxwood hedge. Why throw them out?
27. Two Mason Jars Tied Together
Tying two mason jars together is another of the great centerpiece ideas. The plain jars are held together with a brown grosgrain ribbon tied into a bow. The masses of white flowers, including roses, gypsophila and stephanotis are so abundant that they seem to merge. Their fragrance is equally stunning.
28. Grass Tray with Mini Hyacinths
In this clever arrangement grass has been allowed to grow on a tray. Within them are little cups filled with mini-hyacinths in shades of violet and pink-violet. Beside the main arrangement the designer has placed a tiny porcelain cup filled with more purple hyacinth flowers and their sword-shaped leaves.
29. Spring Centerpiece Ideas with Lumber
Here is one of the most creative of the centerpiece ideas. The designer has drilled holes in a simple, thick piece of lumber and simply stuck sprigs of flowers and herbs in each hole. They include blue delphinium and even two poppy pods. The delicacy and soft colors of the flowers contrast beautifully with the solidity and brown grain of the wood.
30. Elegant China Display with Silver Tray
Don’t be afraid to break out some of the good silver for a flower arrangement. This lovely silver tray holds blue and white Chinese porcelain vessels, one of which is a bowl full of snow white hydrangeas. A plain but elegant white pitcher holds a collection of flowers including pink lilies, white tulips and even red berries and moss.
31. “Love” Box with Old-Fashioned Flowers
Of course, a box with the word “Love” on it is perfect for holding flowers. These carefully arranged flowers include roses, peonies, rosemary and gypsophila. The flowers are arranged in a way that their colors do not quite let the eye rest on one flower alone but force it to take in the whole spectrum.
32. Unique Flowers in a Berry Box
Ever wonder what to do with those berry boxes once the blueberries or strawberries are gone? Use them for containers. In this case, two of the boxes have been used to hold bright pink, gold, pale yellow and orange strawflowers. The flowerheads are in various sizes and various stages of opening.
33. Peonies and Roses in Mason Jars
Few things are more beautiful that simply putting fully opened peonies and roses in plain old mason jars and putting them in an old recycled drawer or wooden box. These blossoms are objects a viewer wants to linger forever. But since they can’t, they’re great subjects for photographing or painting.
34. Doily Embellished Mason Jar Vases
In another of the more innovative centerpiece ideas, the plain mason jar full of just opened tulips is wrapped with a doily that’s secured with raffia twine. The delicate paper lace echoes the white tulips that the jar holds. A nearby jar full of lemons echoes the bright springtime color of the yellow tulips.
35. Muted Color Blossoms in a Vintage Box
This old crate has been filled with sphagnum moss and flowers in muted pinks with tiny pops of purple-blue. The pinks belong to old shrub roses, hydrangeas and pinks, while the little spots of purple come from the grape hyacinth. Spilling gray green oval leaves help to balance the muted, pastel colors of the blossoms.
36. Birch Bark Vases with Peach Flowers
Birchbark wrapped around a container gives it a look that is both rustic and elegant. In this case, two birchbark containers hold orange gerbera daisies and their buds along with white hyacinth flowers. However, in a sort of reversal, a single white ray flower blossoms from a simple, peach colored ceramic vase.
37. White Mason Jars in a Lettered Box
Here are more white painted mason jars lined up in a repurposed, lettered box. The white of the jars contrasts with stalks of purple-blue delphiniums and plumes of feathery, dark green foliage. This arrangement would make a memorable centerpiece in the middle of an old fashioned country table.
38. French Flower Garden Springtime Centerpiece
Set the stage for a grand spring dinner with this springtime centerpiece that’s overflowing with beautiful peonies and roses in white and pale pink and even includes a few pieces of fluffy cotton.
