How to Create a Colorful Centerpiece

Spring has officially sprung but we still have a few remnant snow piles hangin’ on for dear life. This time of year I find it harder to pass by the floral section of the grocery store without snatching up a few blooms. I can’t wait until I can clip fresh flowers from the yard, but for now I have to settle for store-bought. I thought it would be fun to show you how I created a colorful centerpiece with my latest bunch of cheery flowers.

How-to-Create-Colorful-CenterpieceI like my flower arrangements sweet and simple … nothing formal or fussy.

I like the mix of a hard surface against the softer surface – it’s unexpected.


Steps for creating a centerpieceThen comes the fun of adding brightly colored flowers stuffed in mason jars.

I wanted to keep them simple and casual.

  1. So pretty, I have resorted to buying flowers from the grocery store too. I just need a dose of Spring while this snow sticks around.

  2. Love the display of flowers. Does not take anything fancy but pretty flowers to brighten your day. The platter is just perfect to show them off and the flowers show off the platter … win-win.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Jennifer,
    The simple flower arrangement is beautiful, and my eyes kept looking at that equally beautiful piece of vintage trim in the background…all chippy white with a swath of pink!

    I believe we are past our last freeze, but you can never be too sure that an unexpected cold front will swoop down from Canada all the way to north Texas. Hope your snow melts quickly and spring will finally arrive for you.
