Simple Spring & Easter Pansy Centerpiece

Posted on March 21, 2015

Hi Everyone! Happy weekend and happy spring! We had a rather unusual first day of spring here in Maryland yesterday, waking up to cold, snowy weather yesterday morning! It was the coldest first day of spring that I can ever remember, but now the snow has melted, it’s warmer outside, and on our walk at the park today I saw lots of daffodil leaves coming up out of the ground… looks like spring is fighting it’s way through after all! After this long winter, I wanted to bring a little bit of the coming spring indoors and since pansies are some of my favorite spring flowers, I bought a couple of pre-potted ones, re-planted them into a big white bowl and arranged them on the dining table surrounded by hyacinths (more of my spring favorites!) and lots of pastel colored eggs in egg cups! Here’s how I created this Simple Spring & Easter Pansy Centerpiece…

Spring & Easter Pansy Centerpiece

3 – 4 pre-potted pansies
Potting soil
Large white bowl

First select your bowl, which is both wide and deep enough for you to plant the pansies in. I used a medium sized simple white “latte bowl” (similar in style to these Anthropologie bowls, but bigger) for mine. Begin by sprinkling a layer of potting soil into your bowl, then carefully taking the pre-potted pansies out of their little plastic pots, and arranging them into the bowl. Add in extra potting soil to fill in the bowl, making sure the flowers are well planted. Water the pansies whenever the surface of the soil feels dry, and make sure they get plenty of sunlight during the day! Planted in a bowl like this, they’ll last for up to a week!
