Spring signals the beginning of entertaining season – and the re-emergence of gorgeous blooms presents an opportunity to put together a centerpiece that truly dazzles. Whether you go low-key with succulents (which have gone from trendy to a staple for modern centerpieces) or a little over-the-top with fruit and florals, there’s an idea for any style in our Instagram roundup:

Swooning over these springy centerpieces!

Instead of a traditional vase, this centerpiece at Le Bernardin was arranged in a rectangular container.

Incorporate Succulents

Succulents offer a modern alternative to other types of filler greenery with a unique presence all their own. This arrangement pairs succulents with white roses in a “runner” formation.

Add a Dash of Purple

Like the succulent and rose runner, this elegant centerpiece at the Maine venue The Barn on Walnut Hill features a simple palette of green and white. For subtle contrast, a few glimpses of purple were added to the bouquet.

“Deconstruct” a Bouquet

Instead of featuring a single bouquet centerpiece, separate the blooms and greenery into clear glass bud vases of varying heights.

Don’t Be Afraid to Go Dark

For a sophisticated spring arrangement, opt for a black vase instead of a pastel, white, or clear one. The color helps “ground” the arrangement, and its contrasting dark hue makes petals and leaves pop.

Feature a Single Type of Flower

In this centerpiece by Swedish décor blogger Rebecca Jackson, a few crocus flowers become an exquisite statement in a simple white ceramic vessel. If you’ve forced bulbs into bloom indoors, you can create a similar look.

Pair Florals With Fruit

Maximalist at heart? Bring on the color. This runner-style centerpiece by event planner Courtney Whitmore combines vibrant flowers with grapefruit, oranges, and lemons.
