How to make a quick & simple 5 minute Spring centerpiece

I often start a tablescape plan by thinking of a centerpiece. This one is super quick and easy.

 Here’s the supplies you’ll need:

The supplies for this quick and simple DIY farmhouse centerpiece are an assortment of faux greenery and yellow flowers, along with a galvanized metal flower box.

The supplies used for this DIY centerpiece project just might be found in your decor closet stash!
  • A galvanized metal flower box (I found mine at a thrift store, but here’s something similar)
  • 2 bunches of faux wispy  greenery (here’s some similar)
  • 2 pots of faux greenery (I got mine at Ikea, but here are some similar)
  • 1 bunch of faux yellow forsythia (a similar option here)
  • 1 small bunch of faux yellow flowers (These are cute!)
  • 1 small bunch of faux lime green flowers (These would be gorgeous!)
  • 2 shallow bowls

**Please note: Although I’ve linked online shopping to all the supplies above, I personally found mine at a thrift store, Ikea, and Micheals Craft stores. If those options are available for you, too, the price of this centerpiece could be very low!

How to assemble the Spring centerpiece

Start filling the centerpiece flower boxes by putting the wispy faux greenery on each end.

Don’t overthink the placement of the florals in this centerpiece flower box. Just set them in!

Start by putting the 2 bushes of greenery on either end of the galvanized metal flower box.

Place the 2 bowls upside down inside the flower box to give the potted plants extra height.

Set the 2 pots of faux greenery on the bowls.

Place yellow flowers interspersed throughout the faux greenery.

Customize this easy flower box centerpiece idea with any color scheme you’d like.

Cut apart the faux greenery so each flower is on an individual stem. Intersperse the flowers throughout the greenery.

I like to always work from one side to the other when placing flowers. If I put one on the left side, I put one on the right, etc.

Setting a Spring Tablescape – Layer, layer, layer!

Since the color yellow was the inspiration for this tablescape, I started with a yellow striped farmhouse style tablecloth.

Layer the table with a yellow striped tablecloth, plaid dishtowels under the placesetting, and stacked plates on a woven charger.

Layer different colors and textures of linens for a relaxed farmhouse style.

In experimenting with various options, I found that layering a dark gray contrasting color provided more interest and excitement – plus made the cheery yellow and Spring green pop.

Dark gray striped and checked tea towels were laid under each placesetting with a gray checked runner down the center.

Make the place settings special

Whenever I’m attending a dinner party where special care has been placed on the details of the place setting, it makes me feel cared for!

I wanted to create something similar with this Spring tablescape place setting. It could be used for Easter, Mother’s Day, or a Spring birthday celebration.

A handwritten place card with the name "Joel" tucked into a faux grass mini potted plant on top of a plate.

A handwritten place card is a nice personal touch for guests.

On the top of the layered placemat and woven charger, the cherry on the place setting top is an individual pot of faux grass with a place card set inside. I had difficulty finding any mini faux grass pots online that weren’t really expensive! Look in your local Dollar Stores or craft stores for much less expensive options…

Those beautiful blue linen napkins and blue egg decor stems were a thrift store find. You can see how I created an entire tablescape in this 5$ Goodwill Tablescape post.

I created a printable place card sheet available in my VIP printables library, so readers can print it off and use it for their Spring tablescapes, too.

Add in extra pops of Spring themed decor and greenery

Have fun adding in colorful Spring themed decor and florals.

Alongside the centerpiece, I scattered a few more faux greenery pieces, a fun pink bike, and some faux moss rocks.

Look in your decor stash closet to see what kind of Spring themed decor you may have that you forgot about.

  9. Hi Rita-Joy, your lovely Spring tablescape truly stirred up memories of my first Spring bike rides after a long winter indoors.

The mixture of patterns conjure up thoughts of casual days at play in the countryside and small country villages where biking to friends and neighbors was a daily must. The sweet place cards are a lovely touch too. Happy Spring.
