After adding a touch of simple spring decorating to my mantel last week, I couldn’t stop there. My coffee table needed a pop of color as well, so I came up with a wildflower centerpiece using things I already had around the house.
I can’t remember where I got this wooden bowl, but I absolutely love it so I used that as my base. A search around the house led me to my preserved boxwood wreaths and some faux yellow flowers (similar to these) I had used for something last year around this time.
I layered two of the boxwood wreaths on top of each other in the wooden bowl to fill it up with greenery.
Next, I put in the yellow wildflowers as I’m calling them. They didn’t want to stay tucked inside the bowl, so I gave up and went with how they were naturally directing themselves. That is why I’m referring to this as the wildflower centerpiece.
For the center, a simple glass vase with a candle gives it height. The little butterfly was the one thing I did buy on my last excursion to Michaels’s stores. I clipped that to the side of the glass vase (it comes with the metal clip). I noticed these clip-on butterflies online, the color would’ve been even better with my yellow flowers.
This literally could not have been simpler. There’s still a bit of room where real flowers could be added for Easter or even over the summer. I have a set of flower tubes that I keep around for just this reason.
Simple yet festive. It’s amazing what you can find when you shop your own house!
