With Easter behind us it's Full Steam Spring
Ahead when it comes to entertaining.

Do you have an upcoming graduation reception, bridal shower or birthday get-together on your hosting calendar?  Great!  'Cause I've got some terrific, inexpensive, and beautiful centerpiece ideas to share with you.

How darling are those wildflowers in Mason jars?  They couldn't be easier to make and are thoroughly engaging.

The cans were recycled after the party.

Vivid Occasion
Flower-filled tea pots and tea cups make an inviting setting.

A simple budding branch with artificial birds makes a crafty table display.
And look at the adorable bird nests on upturned coffee cups:

Moss, two cut flowers, and local greenery - gorgeous!

Interested in more out-doorsy ideas?

I love it!

The bride's and groom's initials were carved
into these adorable hollow branch 'vases.'

Daisies and tree branches - enchanting!

Maybe you're thinking of a beach theme?





Country Living

Fruit is a simple and enticing component of any arrangement:

Confessions of a Plate Addict

Artificial gerber daisies and limes
are a divine combination.

Take a close look - these flowers are made from felt:
White-washed clay plant pots are inexpensive and sturdy.

Styrofoam cones, craft moss and Brussel sprouts are all you
need to make these unique and organic arrangements.

How cute would this be for a book club dinner party?

Style Me Pretty

Yes, some of the most beautiful centerpieces
truly are the simplest.

Happy hosting!
