I spotted this amazing Easter table centerpiece in Southern Living back in 2015. I was totally in awe of the mechanics and art that went into creating this lovely arrangement. Even though Spring has officially been here for a couple of weeks, this centerpiece certainly announces the arrival of spring with fresh flowers and vegetables. Isn’t this just the thing for your Easter Celebration?

Since I am always looking for fresh ideas for my Easter table decorations, I knew I wanted this fun centerpiece was something I wanted to try. I ran into a number of challenges creating this for my Easter dinner table, but I conquered them all! The challenge was that I could not find a glass vase with a small opening like the one used by Southern Living.
Finally I settled on this glass bowl that is 9 and a half inches deep and 9 inches across at the opening. This would have to do.
A floral cage would not fit across the top of this bowl and I really didn’t want water sitting in the bottom of my bowl beneath the carrots. Setting a plastic salad plate across the top of the bowl seemed to be the answer. I drilled two holes in one of two plastic plates and four holes in a second plate.
First, I cut the green tops off of my carrots. Using floral wire, I stuck the wire through my carrots and gathered them into a tight bunch.
The wires from the carrots were pulled up through the two holes in the first plate, securing the carrots hanging beneath. I did tuck a couple of little carrot greens into the top of the carrots to hide any wires that might show.
It is very important to secure the plates to the glass bowl. I used waterproof floral table to do this.
A piece of wet floral foam was secured into a cage and that cage was then anchored to the second plate through the four drilled holes. This second plate can then be set upon the first and also firmly anchored with additional waterproof tape.
Carrot tops were the first thing I added to my arrangement.
Radishes and brussel sprouts were put on bamboo skewers to add them among the real flowers to my arrangement. If you want to make this ahead of time, you can always find artificial vegetables and faux flowers to use for your Easter dining table centerpiece! If you don’t want to add the vegetables to your arrangement, you could always use the skewers to add some styrofoam Easter eggs!
I don’t think I could be happier with how my arrangement turned out. What do you think of the final result? Now, if only I had Southern Living’s photographers capturing mine! This will be a lovely centerpiece for my Easter table. I hope I have inspired you and have offered you enough details that you can create this for yourself! This should be the colorful centerpiece on your dining room table this coming holiday.
