I put together a last minute centerpiece for our dining table for Easter with items I had in the house!
The only items purchased were the carnations. I love carnations because they are very budget friendly, and last a long time!
I started with a tray. I love to put things on trays because it “grounds” everything………. and when we go to set the table, everything can be moved out of the way all at once! Bonus! I laid a pink and white embroidered table runner in the tray to soften it a bit. (found at a yard sale years ago) I had two different bunches of carnations, so one bunch went in my french enamel pitcher, the other I cut shorter to put in a small white pitcher.
I am very fortunate to have a small old Bible from each of my Grandmas. They needed to be in the vignette.
Under the cloche are my DIY chenille Easter eggs nestled in shredded packing paper. Any Easter eggs would work, and if you don’t have a cloche, a bowl would work just fine. I wanted to add a couple more small things, and the little hummingbirds nests we found on the ground a few years ago, were perfect! Add a few small chocolate pastel eggs and done!
I encourage you to “shop your house” to put together a quick centerpiece/vignette. Stick with a couple colours (I tend to gravitate towards pink haha) and add in something darker so it doesn’t look too sweet (Bibles). Vary the heights to keep it interesting. Thank you for stopping by, and I pray you have a Blessed Easter, remembering the gift of eternal life our Savior Christ gave to us!
