Simple Spring Centerpieces

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring CenterpieceWoo hoo! Have you realized that the official start of spring is now less than a month away? Sooo…I have added a little touch of spring to my home with a simple spring centerpiece starring some of my favorites…white ironstone, my little chalkware lamb and a pot of flowering hyacinths. However, outside my window I can see this…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring Centerpiece …the results of an ice storm...pretty but dangerous! Fortunately for me, my trees are not mature and have fared very well with only a few broken branches, unlike some of my neighbors who lost not only power but also entire trees! Yikes!

Isabella Miss Isabella says she’s had enough of winter and is ready for spring to arrive!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring Centerpiece So I am grateful to have these little bits of spring brightening up my day! I have nestled a pot of hyacinths, on the verge of bursting into bloom, into some burlap to add texture…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring Centerpiece …and placed them in one of my favorite white tureens…a thrift store find from several years ago.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring CenterpieceI layered in some double-sided striped and floral napkins in colors that reflect the hyacinths and topped them off with a few vintage silverplate forks in my favorite grape-y pattern, tied with jute twine to add even more texture.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring CenterpieceI finished off the centerpiece with a little vintage-look faux chalkware lamb...a favorite find from Wisteria last year. Doesn’t he have the sweetest little face?

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Simple Spring CenterpieceI corralled it all in a small round woven tray and added it to my handmade burlap table square. I love the simplicity and the little bit of our soon-to-arrive (I hope) spring! And best of all...I love the way the hyacinths are filling my home with their sweet fragrance!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Touch of Spring And just in case you are looking for more hints of spring, here’s my springy centerpiece with lots of blue and white and sunny yellow daffodils…another favorite spring flower!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Using Vintage Finds in a CenterpieceAnd even though I created this centerpiece using my vintage finds from a thrifting trip with friends last July, I think it would fit right in with spring! I was so excited to find the vintage lamb mold and couldn’t wait to share it with you! The little swirly vintage molds and the quadruple silverplate duck head sugar bowl were prized finds at a local antique fair.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Spring VignetteAnd finally, you may recognize some of the elements of my French spring vignette, such as the little chalkware lamb. You can also see a vintage silverplate fork, tied with jute  twine and added to a burlap insert in a thrift store frame. The cute little French flash cards were a gift from a sweet friend. I finished it off with egg cups filled with violas on a vintage silverplate tray. Can you tell that lambs and spring flowers are some of my favorite ways to welcome spring?
How about you? Are signs of spring starting to appear in your home?

  1. Debbie,
    I love how you nestled the hyacinths into some burlap! Beautiful centerpieces.

  2. Very pretty, Debbie! Here in Florida we had our three days of Winter and now Temps are back in the 80's.

  3. The tureen and burlap - lovely, simple - I think that I might be able to find something comparable around here. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Very pretty Debbie love the silver. Starting to do some projects.


  5. All of your centerpieces are so pretty and springy, Debbie. I usually purchase simple, inexpensive potted plants from WalMart in anticipation of spring and Easter. Later, I plant them somewhere in the garden so that the following year they'll be a welcome surprise. My success rate has been very good with both hyacinths and Asiatic lilies!

  6. Love all your centerpieces! Makes me want to get out my sweet ceramic lamb and do a springy arrangement on the dining room table. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas!

  7. It's so nice to see such sweet signs of spring.

  8. I wish I had remembered to plant hyacinths. I just love them.

  9. Beautiful spring vignettes, Debbie. Your little lambs are adorable, and of course the hyacinths make me smile!
    Your little lambs are also a nod to The Year of the Sheep. ;-)

  10. Debbie,
    Seeing your spring vignettes brightened my day. We are continuing to have unseasonably cold weather with more sleet/snow flurries forecast for Friday and Saturday. My daffodils were in full bloom earlier this week when we got a heavy blanketing (for us) of snow. Now, they are drooping. So, seeing all your spring-inspired table centerpieces was just the thing to brighten my day.


  11. So beautiful. Its exciting to think of spring with another snow storm on the way. I vote NO MORE SNOW! I'm really quite done with it

    Beautiful kitty ... I mean assistant

  12. The flowers are beautiful and make that special touch to a room. Love all your vintage finds and how you arranged everything with such perfection!

  13. I just love the fresh touch of flowers! Everything makes me yearn for Spring but it snowed today! Alas!!

  14. Very pretty... makes me wish spring would hurry up!


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I appreciate my wonderful readers!... Debbie
