Pussy Willow Egg Centerpiece
Appearing early in the spring, pussy willow is one of nature's earliest reminders that the garden will flourish again. Light, supple, and strong, the stems of pussy willows can be easily woven into baskets or bent into frames for other useful objects.
Tulips and Daffodils in a Nest
Wheatgrass Basket Centerpiece
Wheatgrass makes a wonderful Easter centerpiece and provides the perfect background for displaying decorated eggs, flowers, and chocolate bunnies.
Lilacs' subtle color variations are perfect for creating painterly, layered arrangements. Gather blooms in two or more hues, and group them by color gradation in a heavy vase.
Bring the whimsy of scherenschnitte, the German art of paper cutting, to your tabletop décor. Blown-out eggs, dyed and adorned with seasonal silhouettes, dangle from a cluster of quince branches to make this centerpiece.
White-Chocolate Bunnies Centerpiece
Egg-and-Crepe-Paper Flowers Centerpiece
Exuberant egg-and-crepe-paper daffodils and tulips are a breeze to make—and you don't have to worry about the arrangement wilting.
"Chocolate" Rabbit Display
Faux-chocolate rabbits stand guard over nests of candy eggs; the rabbits are made of acrylic and can be displayed year after year. While you can use elements from your backyard to create your nests, colored mohair yarn could work in a pinch.
Enliven your next buffet with an arrangement of eggcup bouquets displayed on cake stands. Choose small-budded flowers in similar hues, such as tulips, lily of the valley, paperwhites, and daffodils. Place a small round metal floral frog in each eggcup to help shape and weight the arrangements. Water daily for a long-lasting centerpiece.
A few of these simple arrangements makes a wonderful nature-inspired scene, perfect for the table.
Spring Pussy Willow Nests
This time of year, birds instinctively put the materials at hand to good use. Here, the downy, gray catkins of pussy-willow branches soften a densely woven nest, while dried grasses inside cushion fragile decorated eggs.
