Easy Basket Centerpiece & Tablescape Vignette Ideas

Do you love a basket flower arrangement? A woven basket adds so much texture to a table arrangement. I love arranging flowers for a basket centerpiece, and I’m sharing some easy spring basket centerpiece and tablescape vignette ideas.

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.

Basket Centerpiece

I immediately envisioned fresh lilacs and branches spilling from a basket on my greenhouse table. However, the lilacs are not in full bloom, 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.

Today’s centerpiece idea is part of this month’s Pinterest Challenge, hosted by Cindy at County Road 407.

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 love this centerpiece’s rustic garden feel.

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 a handy accessory that elevates the table’s centerpiece.

In addition, it helps to pull the centerpiece vignette together by anchoring all the elements.

The greenhouse is filled with many DIY projects, including the solar chandelier, the apothecary cabinet, the basket ladder, and the window potting table.

Spring Basket Centerpiece

I began with the faux lilac stems from A Floral to make the Spring basket centerpiece. 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 the bunny statuary.

This rustic bunny is one of my Wilmington, NC, thrifted finds, and she is so sweet as part of the vignette.

Additionally, several vintage brass candle sticks, terra cotta saucers, stacks of white plates, and bird nests help complete the inspiration elements.

Additional Spring Centerpiece ideas

In addition to the elements found in the inspiration photo, I added 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.

Oh my goodness, Rachel! I guess I hadn't seen your greenhouse before or have forgotten about it, but WOW, what an impact the basket centerpiece makes with the tall flower arrangement and then the walls and fiberglass sheeting (letting in beautiful light!) in the background... Everything coordinates so well!! Lovely...

Do enjoy your beautiful basket centerpiece, Barb :)
