DIY Springtime / Easter Tulip & Egg Centerpiece

To welcome the first day of Spring today, we have a special guest post to share that was created for us by the amazingly talented floral designer Kiana Underwood of Tulipina. Enjoy!

-----

With Easter, the possibilities for creative expression are abundant. This particular design incorporates the staples of spring and Easter (colorful flowers and eggs) in a unique and easy way. The green ranunculus are amazing in the texture that they bring to the design, and the colorful pop of the tulips and lilies scream cheer and happiness. A few ceramic rabbits on another cake plate finish the Easter motif. I hope that you enjoy trying your own version of this DIY.

What you will need:

Begin by placing the pedestal bowl on top of the cake platter and start arranging the tulips so that they hang over the side of the bowl. The tulip leaves (attached to the stems) create a nice fill as well.

Continue by placing the lilies in the same manner next to the tulips.

Add the ranunculus and additional tulips. 

Continue by filling in with additional numbers of each variety. This arrangement works well by having a reasonable segregation between the floral varieties.

Stack the eggs carefully around the platter and voilà - you have a lovely Easter centerpiece. 

Kiana Underwood is the owner of Tulipina, a boutique floral design studio in San Francisco, California specializing in chic events. Kiana’s unique approach to design blends a natural and organic garden style with creative and eclectic design. She is also the editor of floral blog Naked Bouquet, which focuses on design and creative DIYs. When not designing, Kiana enjoys reading, playing the piano, and being a busy mother of three. In addition to her website and blog, you can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

I have never seen green ranunculus and it is the most gorgeous bloom! What a stunning arrangement. I follow you on Instagram and chimed in on your moving situation last week and keep looking for updates. I love instagram and feel honored to conversate back and forth with you a little. I think you are the most humble, non assuming, non obnoxious blogger out thtere with THE BEST taste. Keep up the amazing work and praying for you and hoping your house goods arrive soon.

Best, Kara

Just gorgeous! Love the idea of adding the eggs. How pretty would it be with naturally-dyed eggs in pretty colors to go with the florals?
