Some of spring’s greatest hits come together in this arrangement, united by a purple color palette. Tall, stately alliums provide the focal point, lilacs add a heavenly scent, and tulips bring a graceful element to the centerpiece. Add a few snips of foliage and yellow-green hellebores to break up the purple flowers.

Bring your garden to the table with a lush spring centerpiece. To get the look, place cut white bearded irises amid foliage plants like ferns, ivy, sorrel, and Columbine. You can keep all of these in their nursery pots, because the decorative basket hides the containers. The cut flowers will last for about a week, then you can either replace them or distribute the plants around your house or garden.

Re-create the wild beauty of a spring flower field with daffodils in various shapes and colors, including sunshine yellow and pale peach. To extend the theme to the rest of the table, use any small vessel fitted with a tiny floral frog at the base. Stagger stem heights to highlight the flower head silhouettes.

Turn a handful of dyed Easter eggs and a bright bouquet into a playful spring centerpiece. To make it, fill a shallow vase with water and your favorite in-season flowers. Dye or paint colorful Easter eggs to match the hues in the bouquet and scatter them around the table.

Flowering Branches

Early-flowering branches like redbud are alluring after a long winter, but their heaviness can make them daunting to arrange. Enter the floral frog, which secures branches even in a low vessel so you can show off their shape. Soften the base of the arrangement with other early-spring flowers like tulip magnolias and hellebores.

Mixed Tulip Arrangement

It can be hard to choose among the huge variety of tulips available in the spring—so don’t! Instead, create an arrangement that shows off standard, double, and parrot types in several colors. With stems held in place by a floral frog (which is hidden by polished stones), this spring arrangement allows a mass of flowers to emerge from the shallowest of dishes.

Gathered from the garden, an alluring clutch of golden, cream, and apricot-hued daffodils make a bright spring centerpiece. Select several daffodil varieties and colors for more interest. If you cut the daffodils before their buds have opened, they'll last longer in the bouquet.

Purple Floral Arrangement

Although the flowers in this stunning spring centerpiece come from a florist, you could substitute garden flowers or blossoms from flowering shrubs. For maximum impact and the most natural look, gather the blooms into clusters of like flowers, rather than placing them individually into a more carefully arranged bouquet.

Spring Tulips

Tulips shine with their own personality, and because they continue to grow after cutting, they'll even rearrange themselves in a vase. Leave stems long for a playful arrangement, or cut the stems short to gather the flowers tightly together. Tulips are thirsty, so refill the dish with water daily to prolong the life of the blooms.

Pink Peony Centerpiece

An abundance of fragrant pink peonies fills a white ceramic vase for a pretty spring centerpiece. Rather than placing one oversized arrangement in the center of the table, sprinkle small vases with one or two flowers around the table to tie the look together.

Cool Hues

Keller + Keller 

A tin bowl and saucer display welcome spring's arrival with an an assortment of purple hyacinth, blue grape hyacinth, plum-hue tulips, grape fritillaria, and ruffled columbine foliage accented with a black pussy willow arrangement added to the flowers. Begin by crisscrossing the willow branches to form a "nest" through which all the other stems can be inserted, weaving each flower just where you want it in the design. Notice how the dark centers of the tulips echo the black catkins.

Living Vase

Cover a small galvanized bucket with fresh-cut French pussy willow branches for a lovely living vase. To make it, cut enough pussy willow stalks to embellish the container's exterior and secure with twine. Then, fill the vase with bright pink blooms (we used light and dark pink tulips) and additional pussy willow branches for a cohesive look. Place the vase on a galvanized tray and add a few spring trinkets for a seasonal centerpiece.

Dried Hydrangea Arrangement

Dried hydrangeas, globe thistle, and ornamental oregano create a beautifully simple arrangement for a spring centerpiece. A hidden grid of floral or transparent tape across the top of the vase keeps the cloud of blooms in place. The muted tones of dried flowers lend themselves well to a springtime pastel palette.

Farmhouse Spring Centerpiece

Create a spring centerpiece that blends seamlessly into existing farmhouse decor by placing jars of fresh flowers in a wood box or tray. This kind of arrangement is easy to put together because you don't need to assemble a grandiose bouquet to make a statement. Simply trim your favorite backyard blooms and pop them into mismatched glass jars.

Easter Egg Vase

A large-mouth clear clear jar easily becomes the perfect vessel for an Easter centerpiece. Place a clear drinking glass in the center of the jar and gently stack dyed ceramic eggs between the glass and jar, alternating egg colors. Then, fill the glass with water and add fresh blooms.

Pussy Willow Arrangement

Keller + Keller 

The common pussy willow is instantly recognizable, but there are so many other unique varieties for the landscape and the vase. Mixing several cultivars in one large arrangement makes a dramatic impact—and showcases botanical diversity. Here, the large galvanized jug holds four different types of the branches, while heritage pussy willow stems fill a small accent vase.

Treasures of another kind fill this cedar chest. Line the box with plastic wrap, then drop in 4-inch pots of budded irises and mosses. Use fillers like spikemoss as the supporting cast for seasonal flowers.
