Spring Centerpieces with Blue Eggs & Daffodils

Easter, Entertain, On the Table

This post comes to us courtesy of home entertaining and lifestyle blogger Jenny Steffens Hobick


Using two very simple elements — eggs and planted daffodils — I created two different table settings that would be perfect for Easter or a spring party. Both looks are fresh and simple and incorporate unique vessels instead of typical vases for the flowers. For me, inspiration struck when I was perusing my local market and I spotted the blue and brown heirloom eggs.  Sometimes the most simple of ingredients can make the most interesting centerpieces!


Part of what makes these table settings unique is the use of creative “vases” for the flowers.  Both of these centerpieces feature vessels that are not designed for flowers: a wooden box and white bowls. When I’m struggling to come up with an idea for a table, I start exploring my house to see what non-floral container I can use to make something stunning for the table. Oftentimes, I come up with trays, baskets, boxes or glasses that work beautifully without having to spend a dime.


The Egg Hunt Centerpiece


Doesn’t this Egg Hunt centerpiece make you feel like a kid? I love the whimsical blue and brown eggs hiding amongst the bed of daffodils; it almost feels like a piece of someone’s garden was cut out and placed on the table. Now this is an egg hunt I’d be up for – while enjoying my Eggs Benedict and a Bloody Mary!


I reused the box from a paperwhites arrangement I had during the holidays. To make the centerpiece, I filled it with potting soil and planted ten daffodil bulbs that were already in bloom. Next, I covered the dirt with moss (something about seeing dirt on the dining table is icky) and then “hid” the eggs gently on top. For more details about this table, visit my blog.


Blooming Bowls


I designed a symmetrical, balanced centerpiece by lining up bowls of planted daffodils and pale blue and brown eggs. The mix of powder blue and yellow is such a great color combination for this time of year. Notice that I use restraint when it comes to mixing too many elements, colors or patterns.


Designs look best when they are anchored by strong neutral (in this case, white) pieces, like the linen napkins and bowls.  For more details about this table, visit my blog.
