Welcome spring with this easy pussy willow centerpiece that you can literally make in just a few minutes, once you gather your supplies. It took me longer to wash the vases then it did to put this together!

Pussy Willow Centerpiece Supplies Needed:

  • Clear vases
  • Faux eggs
  • Real or faux pussy willow stems

I decided to use a set of glass vases that I’ve had for years and still love. All you do is fill the container with eggs about half to three quarters full. You can use any sort of eggs. I chose these neutral smaller eggs, but that is totally a personal choice.

Once your eggs are in the vase, push your pussy willow stems to the bottom. The eggs will hold the stems in place so this step is very easy. I wanted real stems but I had a hard time finding them. I went to four places and had no luck at all. I decided to then call a couple of local florists and finally found these real stems. They were a bargain at 60 cents a piece!

Of course you can use any kind of stem you like. Faux apple blossoms or forsythia would be lovely. I was going for a neutral, natural look so I thought the pussy willows were perfect. If you can’t find real pussy willow stems, the faux ones are amazingly real-looking. Definitely go that route if needed. 

Any centerpiece will grow in presence if layers are added. I used a vintage grain sack as a table runner, and nestled the clear vases on a tray, along with a small next filled with more eggs.

Pussy Willow Centerpiece Tip

Trim your stems to the height that works best with your vase. I trimmed my stems just a few inches because I wanted them to reach the chandelier.

I got my eggs at Hobby Lobby and added some blue eggs I already had. I checked the HL website and the eggs are sold out right now so I added some similar faux eggs, glass vases, and pussy willow branches to my Amazon shop. You can take a look at everything [HERE.]

    Ann, l have found that during this pandemic that simple and easy dinners are the way I go. Fortunately like you I have a husband who likes what ever I make and never complains. A sit down dinner is a once or twice a week event!
    Your spring arrangement is just lovely. I planted a pussywillow along our stream just for spring arrangements. Need to prune it to bring it down a little since it has grown to about 15 ft.
    Always love reading your blog. Thankyou.

  2. Where is your chandelier from?

  3. Teddee Grace says:

    Like this a lot! Leaving the stems that tall in the lower containers is a different approach and nice and airy for spring. How many eggs did you use? Should I try guessing like the game of how many jelly beans? I’m thinking at least 100.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Teddee…I have no idea how many eggs are in the vases!

  4. Karen L. Packer says:

    Loved it so much I copied it!

    Ann, Love your spring table center piece. Looks like something easy to put together. :)

  6. KathyLambert says:

    Always elegant….just like you!!
    Very pretty!!

  7. This is really cute and simple. Just wondering if you use fresh pussy willows, is water necessary?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Lana…it depends on if you want to actually plant the pussy willow branches. If yes, then they will need water. If you would like to dry the branches as they are, no water is needed. I hope this helps!

  8. Love these simple but beautiful ways of decorating. Using a little creativity also means your house doesn’t look like everybody else’s. Continue to love and enjoy your blog.

  9. Happy Belated Birthday…welcome to the 60 ‘s crowd!!! We just celebrated my Moms 87 th Birthday..we went out to her fav Pizza place..she really enjoyed it😊
    I am on pussy willow watch right now.. I seems to get earlier every year. I have a huge tree and I prune it to get beautiful branches…I make pussy willow wreaths..gorgeous and give away branches to friends.I put the branches in my black urn and sometimes some of the branches take root. Simply beautiful.

  10. A belated Happy Birthday to you, welcome to the 60’s! I love pussy willows. We had them in our yard when I was growing up. I still would like to find a way to plant them in my yard today.

  11. Christina @ The DIY Mommy says:

    These are so beauty! Great idea!

  12. Happy Belated Birthday. Welcome to the 60’s it’s great. Have a great weekend.🎂🎈❤️

  13. Hi, Ann! As always your ideas are original and fabulous. May I inquire where you bought the faux eggs you used in this centerpiece? Thank you for always showing easy and affordable projects.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Rosalie…I got the eggs at Hobby Lobby. Happy Spring!

      1. Thank you, Ann! I live in Canada so we do not have Hobby Lobby here. I am looking into Amazon now. Happy Spring to you too. Once again, thank you so much for making ordinary things look so amazing. You have a very creative mind and thank you for sharing your talent with us.

    So pretty Ann! You always do such a lovely job of your decor! I love the simplicity with everything you do and your instructions are always helpful. You have a gorgeous home! Have a wonderful week. Blessings.

  17. Wonderful and easy Thank You, just a note i bought two small pussy willow plants a few year ago and now I have five large bushes, they are so easy to grow and start new bushes with just a stem in water until they root and then place in the garden soil

  18. I really look forward to getting your emails every week. Like most of the comments before me I love the simplicity of your style. It is perfect. But I do have a question about the flowers and plants… are they real or fake??? Or both? I love having fresh flowers in my house but I don’t have a garden to grow them in…yet! Someday!
    Thank you for all your ideas and inspiration.

  19. Following your idea, I’ll use real forsythia in a small vase of water which I will place in a larger vase with cute eggs.

  20. Lisa Johnson says:

    I just love everything you do!!!! Going to make the chicken casserole on Wednesday, and love the springtime pussy willow and egg arrangement. Thank you for sharing these with us- Happy Spring to you and yours!

  21. Laura Harrie says:

    Love this look, simple and very easy to make! Thanks for the idea.

  22. Love this! Such a simple idea. Sometimes simple is best. I love the large scale of this. That really makes the statement. Looking forward to more of this series.

    1. I agree. I love to decorate for the holidays. I need to reduce the amount of holiday decorations I use but still be able to decorate and put my touches in my home. I love your ideas!

  23. I love simple and easy.Your centerpiece looks lovely on your table.

  24. Everything is so lovely! You are a breath of fresh air. I can’t find pussy willows so I will use forsythia which I have in my garden. Do I add water to the vases? Thank you so much!

  25. Jeanette Duke says:

    Perfect and simple. Just enough.

  26. Pat Champagne says:

    I love ‘Seasonal Simplicity’. Inexpensive, quick, easy. And stunning! I follow you because everything you do is beautiful and inspiring. My best to you. Pat.

  27. For my South FL dining room spring look I use clear glass large containers with small shells on a silver tray with pale lavender candles. I use a selection of simple branches for my floral component. About the same color palette as yours. Closer to Easter, I change out containers for faux eggs(loved by the cat) and bunnies and more yellow, I love the simpler approach as I mature.

  28. Norma Rolader says:

    Absolutely amazing and beautiful

  29. Love this…so simple but beautiful!

  30. I love the neutral simplicity of this design. Thank you.

  31. I just love how you make even the simplest things look so elegant.

  32. I’m going to copy this! Just what I need as gray ol’ March approaches. Thanks so much!

  33. You’ve convinced me! Simple – not fussy- can be lovely, economical (in terms of time and money!), and just seems to fit in with what makes me happy these days. This reminds me that years ago I used to put “sticks” in the center of my large urns of flowers on the front porch- I’m going to add them again this year- thanks for jogging my memory on that one!

  34. Dear Ann! This is so simple but wonderfull! A moving decoration idea – thanks.

  35. Mickey Wood says:

    I love you blog. Always have. Thank you for this simple, natural arrangement to celebrate spring.
