Now that it's officially May (Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit!),
I figured it was time to finally put away the December pine cones and bring out the May flowers!
A coffee table centerpiece is a great way to change up the seasonal decor in your home, and it doesn't have to be expensive either. Invest in pieces that can take you from season to season and mix and match well with other pieces.
My three staples are:
Nature (to keep it rustic and add some color/texture: flowers, pinecones, topiary plants)
Candle (to create ambiance and a cozy atmosphere)
Tray (to pull everything together!)
Silver tray from The Dollar Tree ($1), Pine cones from Giant Eagle ($0.49), C.O. Bigelow candle ($19.50), Glass hurricanes from Home Goods ($4.99 each), Silver sparkle berries plucked from my Christmas wreath ($0)
Wooden tray from Bed Bath & Beyond ($21.98 on clearance), Books ($0 - all gifts from friends), Glass vase from thrift store ($2), Fabric hydrangeas from thrift store ($1.91), C.O. Bigelow candle ($19.50), Glass hurricane from Home Goods ($4.99)
I went through an obsession with the C.O. Bigelow candle line this past winter and stockpiled my candle collection - I'm pretty sure I have enough to last me through the next 20 years. They retail for $19.50 but there's always great specials for these year-round, especially around the holidays.
The fabric hydrangeas are quite possibly one of my all-time favorite thrift store finds - they're the most real-looking, beautiful fake flowers I've ever seen, and the entire bunch was only $1.91!
In other news, Gracie Girl is less than impressed with the transition of seasons and has made it her personal mission to nap all the way to Summer!
What about you? Do you change up your centerpieces based on the change in seasons?
