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 our favorite Spring centerpiece ideas that you can use to liven up any room in your home.
Spring Flowers are a Perfect Fit!
When we think Spring, we’re looking for fresh air, light colors, and open, but ultimately soft, design. Flowers can work wonders here, especially if you do your own gardening. Use Pansy, Tulip, Lilacs, and Daffodils to help flesh out your Spring color pallet. Once you’ve arranged your flowers, consider adding other elements with similar colors to really make your centerpiece stand out. We like to use a crackle glass vase with some curled ribbon to help create that Springtime feel. This is a great centerpiece to place wherever there is some good direct sunlight such as in the kitchen, dining room or living room.
Don’t Be Afraid of the Cute
Pastels aren’t the only theme that’s a lot of fun to work with. Given the proximity to the Easter holiday, 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 either a statuette or even a small stuffed animal. Use this as a centerpiece for children’s room or up on the mantelpiece. It can also make a great placeholder for your children’s Easter basket when the time arises.
Rain Rain Rain
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 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.
Just remember, these are just a few of our favorite design ideas as a means to get you started. 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 with the kiddos before it gets too warm and nice out to reasonably keep them inside.
Have fun and Happy Spring!
