Each year when the weather starts to warm up, we find ourselves wanting to host friends and family in our home a lot more. We have a stunning patio and a bright, cheerful dining room and springtime makes us feel just social enough to want to put them to good use! Of course, if we’re going to host a dinner, we’re also going to go all out with table settings and scapes because that’s just the kind of enthusiastic, DIY hosts we are. That’s why we’ve had our eyes peeled lately for stunning springtime DIY centrepieces!
Just in case you’re as interested in making your very own springtime centrepieces as we were, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration.
1. Glass jar, daffodil, and paper doily centrepiece
Where we’re from, one of the biggest marks of spring coming is in the blooming of tulips all over local parks and gardens! That’s why we love the way they look in decor when we change things over after the winter; nothing reminds us of spring more. If you feel the same way, we’d definitely suggest checking out how Yellow Bliss Road made this pretty glass jar, daffodil, and paper doily centrepiece.
2. Paper flower and lace bottle centrepiece
Perhaps you’re not from a place where tulips bloom each spring but you’d still like to make some kind of pretty floral centrepiece that’s nice and simple? Well, if you’re also a lace lover, then we think perhaps you’ll get a kick out of the way Crafts Unleashed made these pretty paper flower centrepieces with lace ribbon wrapped around a glass bottle used as a vase.
3. Flower arrangements in pastel egg shells
If you’re going to make yourself a spring centrepiece, would you rather make something that’s a little more explicitly linked to Easter? Well, particularly if you love pastel colours, we think you’ll really appreciate the way Martha Stewart made these fantastic little spring flower bouquets that stand inside a painted egg shell resting in an egg cup.
4. Bright lemons in a glass vase
Perhaps you’ve already got a lovely springtime flower arrangement put together and ready for your springtime table but you just can’t help feeling that it could use a little something extra? Well, spring doesn’t have to be all about flowers all the time. We love the way fruit starts to come back into season too! That’s why we liked this DIY lemon vase idea from Yellow Bliss Road so much.
5. Daffodil wooden garden box with nestled Easter eggs
Along with the tulips, daffodils are another flower that blooms only in the spring where we come from and they make the season one of colour and cheer. That was the first thing that caught our eye about this fantastically natural looking centrepiece from Williams Sonoma, but the addition of differently coloured eggs really convinced us that it’s great.
6. Chicken wire vase and herb garden spring centrepiece
Perhaps you’re really digging the idea of increasing how much lovely greenery your springtime tablescape involves and you might even be interested in making yourself a DIY vase, but you’re still not sure you need more flowers? Then we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how A Hosting Home created this wonderfully rustic chicken wire vase that’s home to a little herb garden bouquet rather than colourful blossoms.
7. Tulips and daffodils in a bird’s nest centrepiece
Have we really caught your attention in all our talk of daffodils and tulips because they’re seasonal where you live as well and you love how they look, but you’re not sure how you’re going to choose between the two? Then don’t! Instead, take a look at how Martha Stewart put them together in one centrepiece, wrapping them in small branches to create a birds’ nest at the base.
8. Pastel feather tree
Have you actually been thinking about how you adore the idea of making a springtime centrepiece that’s a little more unique but you’re still intent on having a huge pastel colours element, because that’s one of your favourite parts of spring? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how The House That Lars Built made themselves this completely stunning pastel feather tree in just a few simple steps.
9. Rustic watering can bouquet
Maybe your favourite theme on the list so far is actually the number of interesting and unique things you’ve seen people put their springtime flowers in? Well, in that case, we want to make sure you’ve seen all kinds of cute centrepiece vase options, so here’s another for your list! Check out how Kara’s Party Ideas opted to fill a vintage looking metal watering can with flowers.
10. Picket fence planter centrepiece
Have you actually been feeling quite intrigued indeed by how beautiful the planter box style spring centrepieces look but you just haven’t quite found the idea that really makes up your mind yet? Then here’s another one for your consideration! Check out how Darice made on that looks just like a simple, miniature white picket fence.
11. Whimsical illustrated egg and flower hair centrepiece
If you’re going to make something that’s suitable for both springtime and Easter, would you rather it be loosely inspired and more decorative so that you can leave it out for people to see a little longer without looking out of season? In that case, we think you might get a real kick out of the way Little Inspiration hand illustrated peaceful faces onto egg shells, filled them with tiny spring blossoms to look like hair, and displayed them together in a tray like a sleeping garden.
12. Painted mason jar butterfly bouquet
Have we really caught your eye with the ideas we’ve shown you that look a little more whimsical than simply floral, maybe even getting other elements of spring involved besides just fresh blossoms? Then we think you simply must take a look at the way Design Improvised made this pastel mason jar bouquet topped with delicate paper butterflies.
13. Paper basket bouquets
Maybe you’d like to find an option that will help you decorate your springtime dinner table setting for the season but that’s also a little more individualized so that your guests can take a little piece of spring cheer home with them at the end of the night too? Martha Stewart is here to make your day with these cute DIY paper basket bouquets.
14. DIY cabbage flower centrepiece
Did we actually really pique your attention when we started talking about springtime tablescapes that look all-natural but you’d actually like to find a look that’s even more green and garden inspired than the wooden idea we showed you earlier? In that case, we have a feeling that this stunningly bright spring bouquet that’s been arranged in a series of nice green cabbage leaves by Southern Living might be a little more up your alley!
15. Burlap, lace, and mason jar bouquet
Just in case you’re looking for something very quick and simple but that still has an element of rustic chic inspired style to it, here’s one last concept from Crafts Unleashed for your consideration! They show you how to make a simple mason jar vase wrapped in burlap and lace, which looks delicate and timeless, piling the inside high with your favourite spring blooms.
