Today I wanted to share a fun easy project on how to create a centerpiece using a candle holder. Some of you may know that I worked as a stylist on the HomeGoods Spring Social Shoot a few weeks ago. One of my tasks was to create a Spring dining table which encompassed a DIY centerpiece. If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you may have seen me destroying a candle holder I found in HomeGoods. -ha.

I think that setting a table is such a personal thing and creating your own centerpiece is a way for you to showcase your style.  I love fresh flowers and simple touches.

Centerpieces are actually pretty simple to put together.  For this particular arrangement, I used a candleholder from Homegoods, drinking glasses, and fresh flowers.

Don’t you just adore this candleholder.  I love that it is long and slender.  I covers a good bit of the length of the table which really packs a colorful punch.  This centerpiece is also low and just perfect for your guests to keep the conversations going… which is never a problem at our house!

Simply take your candle holder and remove the candles.

I used several different fresh flowers for this centerpiece.  You can find the complete list above and most of these flowers are available at your local grocery store or florist.

 Here are the flowers that I used:

Green Mini Hydrangea
White Fresia
Lavender stock
Dusty miller
Calla Lillies
Pink Charmila Alstroemeria
Mini Gerbera Daisies

 I simply planted the bunches in clear drinking glasses from Homegoods and placed them in the candleholder.  Don’t you just love the glass on the side of the wooden candleholder. It has a tiny trellis pattern and it adds so much depth to the arrangement.  Can you believe how easy it is to put together? It sure doesn’t look like it though.  I hope you have fun creating a DIY centerpiece of your own and enjoy time spent around your table with those you love!

  1. Beautiful centerpiece! Pinned and plan to make something similar for a party I’m giving soon.
    One thing I do wish you and other bloggers would do is encourage your readers to support small businesses. Instead of supporting giant chain grocery stores it would be nice to see suggestions to find the flowers at their local flower shop.
