Create Special Spring Centerpieces for Palm Sunday and Easter

Palm Sunday is March 29th followed a week later by Easter Sunday. This is a special time to reflect on renewal and prepare for new growth during the new season. Flowers serve as a great reminder of this time of renewal and rebirth. They are a beautiful way to decorate your home. One way you can decorate for these two special spring events is to create spring floral centerpieces. Here are some ideas on making some beautiful spring floral centerpieces: Take advantage of all the various types of spring flowers now available as well as utilize greenery or green plants to add depth and interest. Make a row of floral centerpieces in empty eggshells and ceramic egg cups. Use various baskets that you may have around the house to arrange spring flowers. Get creative with your containers, including using a watering can, glass compotes, and various ceramic bowls and dishes. Add Easter motifs like Easter eggs or spring motifs like butterflies to your flower arrangement. There is no hard and fast rules to creating a floral centerpiece. It should just be a reflection of you and your décor so that it enhances the mood and environment during this special spring
