Simple Spring Centerpiece
Hey all! I kid you not, I have been thinking about this simple spring centerpiece for over a year! Last year Target started carrying cute cake plates in the Dollar Spot. Like any normal human being I started hoarding ALL THE CAKE PLATES. Totally normal right ? Well, when they are only $5, $3, and $1, it made it a little easier to go a little crazy. Over the course of the summer I slowly accumulated a small stash that would make Matt Paxton do a double take.
Anyways, I may have over estimated how many of these little babies I needed… by like 23, but who’s counting. I digress… I had an epiphany as I was unloading my haul from my Target bag… I had simply unloaded the cake plates onto the table until I could put them in their proper homes. But as I was preparing to put them away, I realized they looked beautiful AS-IS. They were all clustered together on my table, and that’s when the “lightening struck my brain”. (10 pts. If you can name that movie.) THIS happy accident would be my next spring centerpiece/ tablescape!
So without further ado… I give you my completely impractical, but totally gush-worthy spring centerpiece!
As I said, this look simply required repetition. It was a very simple concept that I kept repeating. I loved all the cake plates alone, but I wanted to add something simple that would create a little contrast…
Confession, my hoarding issues is not limited to cake plates… I also like little ornate glass bottles, so I pulled out my arsenal of bottles and started staggering them through out the cake plates. All it needed was a small sprig of color and this arrangement was complete!
Once the centerpiece was complete I moved onto the actual place settings. I wanted it to also be simple, so I AGAIN, simply repeated elements. I placed the same bottles, and sprigs and tied a small homemade place setting card to it. Cost? $0.00. Booyah.
There you have it, a beautiful tables-cape that is simple, but based solely on repetition it gains the “Wow!” factor.
There you have it folks, a simple design that can easily be adapted to any season or setting! Can’t you just see it with Holly Sprigs, or sprays of wheat for fall? Seriously, the possibilities are endless! So make sure you pin it and save it for later!
P.S. If you love this table-scape you will love what I did last spring! You can check it out here.
