How to create a spring centrepiece

Spring is the perfect season for enjoying nature’s greatest gift. Fresh flowers are abundantly in bloom and you can quite literally take your pick from a whole bunch of beauties! If you want to make a gorgeous spring centrepiece, here’s how to do just that with a few basic supplies.

You will need:

  • 8 inch floral foam posy frame
  • Tray to hold the floral foam
  • A selection of spring flowers like hyacinths, tulips, and ranuculus
  • Twigs or something similar


  • The first thing you need to do is soak your oasis in fresh water. When you no longer see any bubbles in the water, you’ll know it’s fully soaked.
  • Place the floral foam on the tray so that you don’t wet the table.
  • Wrap a long twig around the outer rim of the floral foam.
  • Add short twigs to the top and sides of the foam. You want to create a nest-like design so you can leave the centre empty for flowers.
  • Now add the flowers and, remember, you will need shorter stems rather than long stems.
  • The flowers in the middle will need to be taller while those closer to the rim should be shorter. This will help create a rounded dome shape.
  • Continue adding flowers until all the foam is concealed.

Enjoy this centrepiece yourself, use it to decorate a table for a special event, or present it as a gift! No matter what, you can be certain that it will brighten any room.
