Something Faux and Spring-Ready

Tuesday, March 2, 2021

What do you think about most during your day? God? Your spouse, kids, family, pets, money?

For me… It’s most everything up on that list & what am I going to share with you today!

Now, I’m not much of a philosophical type of person, I don’t think, but I do know that in order for me to be productive I need to gain the habits of being more conscious and intentional about everything I do.

So I can’t go around on autopilot and expect to end up where I want to be. I need to be more intentional about what drives me. So I guess, all of this creative work that I do needs to go somewhere. I suppose that means its to you.

So I created a new centerpiece!

Are you ready for a little Spring?

From birthday dinners to homework sessions, life’s big and little moments have happened around the dining room table. So it’s only fair that it receives something pretty and always remains in style.

I made a centerpiece using faux flowers in a rustic container. If you know me, you know rust is a must!

I think these florals in this container make a statement upon entrance to this space with eye-catching spring blossoms that never wilt. They are bright, yellow, and spruce up the space. Yes! Yellow is such a happy color.

I love using real flowers but using faux means that I can enjoy the arrangement for all of spring and then enjoy it again in the future. I used my olive bucket filled with the faux stems on the dining room table.

For the container, I used this rustic olive bucket. Olive buckets were once used to gather fruits and vegetables, but especially olives, and now they have nearly countless uses as functional home decor. Here, I liked the additional layer of texture that the olive bucket adds to the space.

For the florals, I used something long stemmed & faux. A purchase at Real Deals Home Decor

Of course, I’ve added some votive candles & always the staple decor, branding iron candle holders with white tapers, all for a little ambiance.

What I did: I used floral foam in the bottom of the olive bucket to stabilize the stems. This will keep the stems more together & upright instead of spreading around the whole bucket. To add a bit more fullness to the flowers I simply spread each stalk apart a bit without tearing them.

I love the end result which was just the cost of a few faux flower stems that were 35% off the original cost, & I already owned the olive bucket. It’s simple home decor that anyone can do.

This just reminds me that warmer weather is around the corner & soon we will have real florals to pick from for our centerpieces! I hope this helps you create a floral centerpiece.
