Simple Spring Flower Centerpiece – 10 Minute Decorating

Spring-Flower-Centerpiece_edited-1

 

I have been off my “decorating game” lately, so I decide the best place to start was with a 10 Minute Decorating Idea, and I think it might be one of my favorites.  It really was so super quick, it was inexpensive and it involves my favorite color – galvanized.  I have decided that the color purple brings out the “color in the eyes” of anything galvanized.  I see our deck filled this year with purple flowers in all of our vintage pots and containers.

To put together this simple project, I started with five larger containers and three smaller ones.  I used empty syrup jars (I wonder where I got those from?!), but really, you can use anything you have.  It is nice to have a least two different sizes.  I have a total of an even number, but it is two groups of an odd number and I always like things grouped in odd numbers.

I took two bunches of grocery store tulips and instead of just putting them together in one container like I often do, I broke them up across the eight containers.  I mixed them up in random order and put them on a galvanized tray.  This particular tray is a vintage piece that is actually a corn dryer.  You fill it with water and heat it with the corn on the tray.  Of course, when I bought it, the woman I bought from and I decided it had something to do with seafood on ice.  I think that would be a fun way to serve something one of these days.

I put these on my kitchen table, but you could easily skip the tray and line them up on a mantel or a console table.  It is a simple and quick way to bring in a little bit of color and a little bit of spring.  Of course, now that spring break is just a few days away for use, they are saying the snow is coming.  Oh well, we can’t control it, but at least we can complain about it – ha!

And even though this was such as simple and quick idea, I thought it would be fun to do a short video sharing how I put it together.


It was such a simple little change, but it has been one I have enjoyed so much.  In fact, late in the afternoon, the light has been hitting them just beautifully.  I shared this picture on Instagram

  1. Such a sweet simple decorating idea. I love the vintage tray and I have to agree purple goes well with anything galvanized. Thanks for sharing!

  2. So simple and beautiful! Was this a combination of your 8oz and 4oz jars or 16oz and 8oz? Silly question perhaps!!
