I love arranging flowers for a basket centerpiece and I’m sharing some easy spring basket centerpiece ideas that you can easily make for your table.
When I found this adorable handcrafted basket vase while out thrifting, I couldn’t wait to add it to my greenhouse table. It will be beautiful filled with numerous flowers all summer long.
I immediately envisioned fresh lilacs and branches spilling from a basket on my greenhouse table. However, the lilacs are not in full bloom right now so I opted for faux lilac stems instead.
Next, I foraged some branches and gathered some potted herbs to add to the vignette.
I can’t wait for you to see the results.
Pinterest Challenge – Spring Basket
Today’s centerpiece idea is part of this months Pinterest Challenge which is hosted by Cindy at County Road 407.
Each month Cindy choses a theme and shares an inspiration photo for the challenge. This months theme is Spring Basket and the inspiration photo comes from Emily at Le Cultivateur. Isn’t her basket centerpiece gorgeous.
If you are joining me from Cindy at 407 County Road, welcome! I know you loved her great basket gift idea.
Although my basket vase looks nothing like Emily’s gorgeous white basket, some of the other elements from her inspiration do appear on the greenhouse table.
- Wooden Riser
- Clay Pots
- Bunny Statuary
- Bird Nests
- White linen table runner
- Candlesticks with white candles
- Stacked Plates
Spring Basket Centerpiece Ideas
In addition to the above elements, I added a few more garden elements to the centerpiece.
- Brass plant mister
- Vintage garden tools
- Bird Statuaries
- Moss Ball accessories
This is only my second Spring decorating the DIY Greenhouse and adding natural elements always work perfectly for this space.
Each season brings a new feel to the greenhouse and I’m loving the rustic garden feel of this centerpiece.
One element that I love to use on tables is the diy wooden riser. Since making the riser for a Christmas table, it has been such a handy accessory and elevates the tables centerpiece.
In addition, it helps to pull the centerpiece vignette together by anchoring all the elements.
Spring Basket Centerpiece
In order to make the Spring basket centerpiece, I began with the faux lilac stems from A Floral. They have such an authentic feel and work perfectly in the tall vase.
Next, I added some branches to increase the height of the arrangement. The branches were foraged from the abundance of fallen limbs under our river oak tree.
Did you know that branches in arrangements or alone are trending now? I love this trend because you can easily achieve it for free.
Another main element found in the inspiration is a bunny statuary.
This rustic bunny is one of my Wilmington NC thrifted finds and she is so sweet as part of the vignette.
You can see more about vintage shopping in Wilmington on this post.
Additionally, several vintage brass candle sticks, terra cotta saucers, stacks of white plates and birds nests help to complete the inspiration elements.
Additional Spring Centerpiece ideas
In addition to the elements found in Emily’s inspiration photo, I added some moss covered balls, a couple of birds and containers filled with herbs such as chives, cilantro and lavender.
A few vintage garden tools and a brass plant mister complete the vignette.
This was another fun challenge and I always look forward to seeing all the different styles represented each month.
Up next is Marty at A Stroll Through Life, and I can’t wait to see her Summer Basket.
