Spring Table Settings

Butterfly Garden Centerpiece
A colorful combination of snapdragons, ranunculus and silk butterflies in a ceramic pedestal bowl creates a unique centerpiece for your spring party.

Kid-Friendly Easter Table For a centerpiece, give a sugar mold an Easter theme; you can find them at antiques shops and flea markets. Fill several plastic egg halves with wheat grass, and then place the eggs in sugar mold holes. Wheat grass can be grown indoors from seed or purchased at a pet store or nursery; it is usually sold in flats. If you purchase flats, pull the grass apart, and insert into eggs. If you decide to grow it from seed, allow 7 to 10 days for germination. Tuck in fresh-faced daisies and bright purple tulips for a spectacular spring display. Finish the table setting with small, pastel-colored buckets filled with treats for the kids.

Garden Table Setting

Celebrate Easter by setting a pretty table that echoes all that you love about spring. With shades of pink, lavender, green, and white, your garden and flower pots resound with color, so why not your table? Gather fresh blooms, vibrant moss, glass vases, and colorful wooden eggs. Soon your table will grow into a fresh and cheerful display.

Unique Combinations
To create a dramatic and colorful spring centerpiece, place yellow tulips in a simple vase, and anchor the blooms with lime slices. If you have a long table, arrange a few of these down the center.

Try Complimentary Colors

Complimentary colors such as purple and yellow create a perfect combination for your spring centerpiece. Purple irises, yellow tulips and white roses in a glass vase make a classic statement for your party decor.
