a fun & simple Spring centerpiece

Spring is finally here!

We've been enjoying amazing weather . . . mild days and cool nights.

I love this kind of weather!  It reminds of a Fall, but with bright greens and lots of flowers.

Our days are filled with sunshine and beautiful clouds . . . perfect for vibrant salads and refreshing lemonades; and because our evenings are still on the cool side, we're enjoying Spring-inspired soups like herb & chicken meatballs in home-made broth and creamy potato and leek soup with home-made smoked paprika croutons and fresh herbs . . . YUM!

And what's Spring without fresh flowers!?

If you follow me, then you know my dining room table and kitchen island always have fresh flowers!

Although I've been enjoying gorgeous flowers, I'm also crushing on green grass this Spring! 

I bought several shallow dishes of grass from our local market to use in my Spring decor this year.

Did you know that grass is a symbol of rebirth?

I assembled these fun & simple Spring centerpieces using hand-blown brown eggs, colorful tinfoil covered chocolate candy eggs, and grass.

I love their simplicity . . . and hope that I've inspired you to create a simple Spring-inspired centerpiece for your home, too.

LET'S STAY in touch!

  1. Well you certainly have inspired me. We are leaving tomorrow for our home in the cold. Yep we're snowbirds and we've been enjoying 70's during the day. Perhaps our daffodils will be up :-) Your flowers are beautiful -- you captured their beautiful colors perfectly!! I'll have to make a special centerpiece -- our grandsons will be down and we're excited to see them and especially to cook for them. Have a wonderful weekend. Meant to tell you, can't wait to make your soup -- it'll be cold up there and we'll need it.
