As the first flowers begin to blossom so too does the desire to bring a little bit of spring into the house, with some colourful and original ideas.
In the magazine we have already talked about the best plants to choose as part of your interior design, but today we want to focus on a number of ideas to create homemade table centerpieces for spring: here a few creative (and also fragrant!) suggestions.
The range in variety of flowers available in spring is already fairly impressive and they lend themselves well to your interior decor. You therefore already have your starting point; just add a pinch of creativity to obtain wonderful spring homemade table centerpieces.
You can carve out the inside of small wooden logs to make natural pots: add some brightly coloured flowers and it’s done!
Bottles have the perfect shape for being transformed into vases. You can decorate them with kitchen string, pieces of jute or other fabric for a shabby chic affect.
Glass jars used for jams and preserves are also ideal for creating original spring homemade table centerpieces. Paint them in pastel colours, tie some kitchen string around the top edge and fill up with your favourite flowers. Et voilà!
A tribute to nature
Spring is the season of rebirth, so you can create a mise en place that is a real tribute to nature, using “simple” and rustic materials, such as terracotta pots or wooden logs: positioning them carefully you’ll get a really sophisticated and elegant effect.
From ‘passata’ sauce to flowers
Returning to glass jars: don’t throw away those typically used for tomato ‘passata’ sauce, you can repaint them and create real design objects.

Watering can as protagonist
If flowers are the symbol of spring, so too are the tools used to take care of them. The watering can, for example, has an ideal shape to become the real protagonist of the whole table.
Suspended table centerpiece
One last idea? If the table you want to decorate is under beams or in a gazebo, you can create your own spring centrepieces… suspended!
Using some kitchen string, simply hang some transparent bottles and put a few coloured flowers in each one. With a wide variety of colours, shapes and sizes, you’ll leave your guests speechless!
