Easy spring centerpiece

Spring is taking forever to get here, this time last year we had blooming tulips and flowering trees. You've gotta love the Midwest! Lately, I have been buying flowering plants to bring spring inside. They last longer than a bouquet of flowers and cost about the same.



I like having something pretty on the kitchen table, but since we eat most of our meals here, it needs to be easy to move.

For this arrangement I used a six dollar pot of white tulips from the grocery store. I didn't bother to plant them, I just popped them into this clay pot I found at an estate sale. I love that it already has a weathered, mossy look. 



I usually use trays to corral a group of pretty things, but this time I used a big wood slice. A bread board or cutting board would look great as well.

You can add a little drama to your arrangement by cutting a few branches to force into bloom. Cut the ends of your branches on an angle and put them into a floral water tube. You can find these at any craft store.


Then I arranged them in the empty space inside my pot and covered it up with preserved moss. You can also put the tubes right into the soil if needed.


My branches started blooming about a week later.





Easy, inexpensive and long lasting. The perfect centerpiece to remind mother nature that it really is spring.
