3 Spring Centerpieces for any Room of Your HomeApril 18, 2017
There are few pieces of home decor that are more central than the aptly named centerpiece. Not only do these wonderful bits of decoration help to bring a room together, but they also create a wonderful conversation piece. What’s wonderful about centerpieces, however, is that they aren’t trapped to the kitchen table, but can, instead, find a home just about everywhere in your house. Here are a few of ideas for spring centerpieces that you can use to liven up any room in your home.
1. Spring Flowers are a Perfect Fit!
When you think about adding spring into your home decor, look for fresh air, light colors, and open, but ultimately soft, design. Flowers are a perfect fit for spring centerpieces, especially if you do your own gardening. Use Pansies, Tulips, Lilacs, Daffodils, and other seasonal flowers to help flesh out your spring color palette.
Once you’ve arranged your flowers, consider adding other elements with similar colors to really make your spring centerpieces stand out. A crackle glass vase with some curled ribbon can help create that springtime look and feel. This is a great centerpiece to place wherever there is some good sunlight such as in the kitchen, dining room, or living room; and it’s one of the classic spring decorating ideas.
Plus, a spring centerpiece like this is a great way to incorporate flowers into your decor, which is one of the cottagecore home decor ideas. Whether real or artificial, flowers as a centerpiece can help you create a farmhouse, country cottage, or rustic look.
2. Don’t Be Afraid of Creating Something Cute
Pastels aren’t the only theme that’s a lot of fun to work with. Given the proximity to the Easter holiday in spring, there are a lot of cute and cuddly elements you can work with for your spring-themed centerpiece. Bunnies are always good if you’re a fan of the Easter bunny, but ducks and frogs are also a great choice to play with.
You can use a small basket lined with some raffia or Easter grass to house a statuette or even a small stuffed animal. Use this as a centerpiece for a children’s room or on the mantel. It can also make a great placeholder for your children’s Easter basket when the time arises.
3. Think About Incorporating Rain-Related Items
Spring is a time for growing things, both plants and animals. It also usually means a lot of rain. There are a lot of fun rain-themed ideas you can play with. Your children’s old rain boots, for example, might be too small for them to wear, but they would make for the perfect vase or centerpiece base.
Little rain boots are great for small decorations inside the house. Try planting some succulents in a toddler-sized boot for something that can live on your windowsill. If you’re looking for a cute decorative idea that is hardy enough to live outdoors, why not turn some old rain boots into a planter. If you have multiple children, you can arrange the boots via size and color and choose what to plant in them accordingly.
These are just a few ideas for spring centerpieces to help inspire you. Fortunately, with the internet at your fingertips, there’s an impossible amount of other designs and ideas out there for you to play with. The important part about all of this is to have fun!
Spring is a great time to enjoy some crafting time alone or with the kiddos before it gets too warm and nice out to reasonably keep them inside. Have fun and Happy Spring!
