Easy Easter Centerpiece

I hope you enjoyed last week's guest post by the always amazing Matthew Mead. Im so happy to have him back this week so he can share a fun centerpiece for your Easter celebrations. If you like his simply beautifully classic style, be sure to check out his new book-a-zine, Flea Market Finds.



Title: Easy Easter Arrangement


Every spring event needs a floral flourish, and this one for Easter is oh-so-simple and can be made using items you have around the house.

We selected a mix of spring flowers in a dual color palette: shades of white and green. We shopped a local grocery store for a selection of tulips, mini calla lilies, freesia, ferns, and bear grass. We spent $19.95 on the bouquet.




From my vase shelf I found a tall cylinder vase (it might have begun life as a candle holder) and a pretty mid-century dessert bowl with a blue glaze on the inside. Floral tape, ric rac, and a chocolate robin's egg rounded out the supplies.


The first step was to wrap the cylinder with the foliage. I placed the bear grass and fern fronds against the cylinder and held it in place with the sticky floral tape.


I bundled the blossoms in mixed clusters and added them to the side of the cylinder and continued to wrap with tape until the entire vase was covered.

Floral tape is a really useful craft supply that can be found at Michael's in the floral supply aisle.


To hide the floral tape, I bound the entire bouquet with vintage ric rac, but twine, ribbon, or new ric rac will work just as well.

I selected a modern salad bowl to hold the arrangement and keep the flowers hydrated. Place the cylinder in the bowl and fill with water (replenish daily with water for longevity).



I found these blue chocolate robin's eggs at my childhood candy store and instantly loved the color and nod to Easter and spring. I purchased a half pound for $3.95.

This detail of the arrangement shows how the flowers ring the glass cylinder to create a perfect nest for perching a bowl of candy or even floating candles.




Fill a dessert bowl with candy and place the arrangement on a side board, entry way, or dining table.


This arrangement is ideal for a gathering; a truly beautiful floral show-stopper that also offers up a fun Easter treat. Be sure to have more candy on hand to refill the bowl!
