Easy Last-Minute Easter Centerpiece


I clipped this idea out of Better Homes and Garden’s Creative Home Magazine way back in the spring of 2007 and just came across it again today while I was doing some spring cleaning. It’s such a lovely and simple idea that I thought I’d share the goodness here. Many of you have colored your eggs by now, so you’ve already completed the bulk of the work and could easily feature this lovely arrangement on your Easter table.


Color hard-boiled eggs in shades of pink and brown (leave some of them white). Center a drinking glass or a candle sleeve inside a large-mouth jar and carefully stack eggs between the glass and jar, alternating the egg colors. Fill the glass with water. Cut rose, ranunculus, and gerbera stems to desired lengths and place them in the glass. Fill in with anemones as needed.

      Me, too, Francesca. I especially love the brown and pink eggs. These colors would make a great inspiration for a bedroom or living room makeover.

      I agree. I have the eggs and the wide-mouth jar. All I need is the flowers and I’m good to go!

      Thanks, Pat. I can also picture this jar filled with multi-colored eggs and a rainbow colored bouquet of flowers or yellow eggs and daffodils. The possibilities are endless.
