Making a Live Spring Centerpiece

There's nothing like seeing fresh Spring flowers after a long winter! 

Let me show you how to create an easy live centerpiece using Spring plants.

Find a Container

You will want something deep enough to hold small plants. I chose a footed pedestal bowl.

01

Drainage

On the bottom of the bowl I added a layer of small pebbles since there isn't drainage holes in my container..

If using bulbs...

Make sure they are forced bulbs that will flower. I grabbed the hyacinth at Trader Joes for around $3.50 with the cute vase.

Arrange Plants & Bulbs

Figure out how you want to arrange your plants then fill your container with potting mix.

Add Moss

Dampen preserved moss and add all over the container,  This covers the soil plus holds in moisture..
