Spring has finally arrived here in the Heartland. The sun is shining, and the spring holidays are just around the corner. Whether it’s Easter, Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo or a graduation party, flowers bring a festive touch to your celebratory tables.
Want to give your springtime table a celebratory makeover with flowers but aren’t sure where to start? We can help. Try some of these ideas, and your guests will be oohing and ahhing over your creativity.
Choose The Right Container
Looking for an arrangement with a unique container? Check out this beautiful orchid arrangement in a glass planter.
You can make any table centerpiece a highlight with an interesting container. Consider using teacups, baskets, watering cans, ceramic pitchers or metal buckets. A colorful, out-of-the-box container can bring a touch of whimsy to your table and spark conversation.
Stick With Spring Flowers
Here in the Midwest, peonies are a sure sign of spring, so consider this Peony Arrangement.
You can decorate your table with faux flowers, and no one will be the wiser if you stick with in-season flowers. Know what’s blooming in your area and choose faux flowers that mimic the seasons of the live flowers in your neck of the woods.
Consider mixing live plants with fake ones in your table arrangement. That will bring the smell of spring inside, but when the live flowers die, you’ll still have a beautiful artificial arrangement to brighten your table.
Add Festive Touches
Add colored Easter eggs to a potted plant arrangement to add a holiday theme to an existing decoration like this White Peony Arrangement.
One great way to give your table a festive air is to add themed touches to a flower arrangement. Consider using a potted plant arrangement and nestling colored eggs into the greenery. Having a graduation party? Add tassels or graduation cap cutouts to the vase.
Play With Color
Looking for a great centerpiece with plenty of color? Try our Mixed Spring Flower Arrangement.
The great thing about spring flowers is their color. As the dull, gray colors of winter fade, spring flowers create an explosion of color to welcome the turn of the season. Make sure they do the same for your holiday table. Experiment with bright, happy colors like yellow, orange, red and blue to draw attention to your table. Match your flower colors with the colors in your plates to create an eye-pleasing setting.
Don’t hesitate to use all the same color flower in an attractive bowl or vase for a centerpiece. Or mix it up a bit with a multi-color bouquet of all the same type of flower.
Individualize Your Table
Use individual stems like our Faux Flower Assortment to personalize your place settings.
A great way to make guests feel welcome is to create a personalized place setting that includes flowers. Use single stems in bud vases or Coke bottles set at each place to make guests feel like you thought especially of them. You can use all the same flower or choose an individual flower for each person.
Take The Flowers Out Of The Vase
Create a more free-flowing table decoration by going without a vase or container all together.
By laying out a few individual stems on a runner or center placemat, you can create a simple, elegant look.
Place a table runner along the length of the table and place your single stems directly on the table to create a fun, elegant and relaxed look. For a more finished look, wrap the stems of your flowers in ribbon that matches your place settings. Doing this will make it difficult for your guests to know if you used fake flowers or live ones.
Keep Height In Mind
If you’re looking for a shorter arrangement for the table, try a Pink Helleborus Arrangement. It’s true that amazing things come in small packages!
When using flowers on your dining table, remember that you want your guests to be able to see each other easily. While that tall lily might be striking, it’s probably going to get in the way of conversation. Try to keep centerpiece arrangements under 24 inches tall to avoid people needing to weave and dodge around the flowers to see the person on the other side of the table.
Whether you use artificial flowers, live flowers or a combination of both on your spring holiday table, there are plenty of ideas out there to help you create exactly the look that you want. You can find more inspiration on this great Pinterest board from Designthusiasm.
Just a reminder that with Spring beauty, also comes Spring allergies. Regardless of whether you are suffering from the results of flower and tree buds, your guests might be experiencing Spring sniffles and sneezes. By using artificial plants and flowers in your Spring decorations you can help reduce the chance that their allergies will flare up while visiting. Yet another benefit of including high-quality artificial plants in your interior decoration.
