If you’re like me, and are sometimes a bit overwhelmed with the thought of “entertaining,” this is the post for you. I love to have my family around me, and I am happiest when they are all home. However, the preparation can sometimes be daunting. That’s why I always try to simplify everything as much as I possibly can. That includes the menus and table settings, which of course, includes the centerpieces. The centerpiece I’m featuring today is simple, fast, and quite possible, free. (If you can find what you need in your stash!)

Easy Seasonal Centerpiece Idea

The basic idea for this seasonal centerpiece is to begin with a vessel or tray. Anything you have on hand will work. Some suggestions are:

  • a large, low bowl
  • a tray with sides at least one inch tall
  • a dough bowl 
  • a basket

The next step is to add some sort of soft greenery or filler. Again, anything you already have will work. It can be real or faux, but if you choose something real, make sure it’s something that will dry well. Eucalyptus works beautifully. Other options would be magnolia leaves, boxwood, caspia, or baby’s breath. Place the greenery/filler in your vessel, so it covers the bottom and hangs over the side.

Once you have your greenery base in place, the fun begins. For this centerpiece, I used faux duck eggs, bunches of carrots, and smaller faux eggs in the center. Some other suggestions for spring and summer are:

  • moss-lined nests with small eggs
  • faux blossoms
  • faux eggs
  • dried flowers
  • fresh, seasonal fruit (lemons, limes, pears)

Finish by nestling your seasonal elements in and on the greenery or filler. At this point, stand back to make sure everything is balanced and admire your creation!
