DIY Simple Floral Centerpiece

See how I used thrift store vases and just one type of flower to make the prettiest simple floral centerpiece perfect for Fall!

If you remember last Friday I shared the first of four easy flower arrangement ideas with this farmhouse flower arrangement in a vintage milk can! Well, I’m back today to share this second flower arrangement a simple floral centerpiece!

A simple floral centerpiece is an easy and fun DIY to do that is as easy as a trip the thrift store for a cheap vase and a few flowers

Here’s last week’s vintage milk can farmhouse flower arrangement:

I can’t even believe I’m saying this, BUT, Fall is just around the corner.  Ugh.  I can’t say I’m excited (which I normally am!).

I feel like I really haven’t enjoyed this summer at all.  Between having a new baby and also a child who really embodies the “terrible twos” I’ve been riding the struggle bus!  Hoping to get back to normal soon :/ #sendhelp

But, I can’t stop the clock from turning and Fall is almost here whether I like it or not.  We have even been having some cooler mornings which I can say are really enjoyable!

In my quest for simple flower arrangements, I wanted to provide y’all with something SO easy but that was still beautiful.

When I stumbled upon deep burgundy peonies from Afloral, I knew they would be perfect!

On a recent thrift store run, I found the prettiest white milk glass vases, AND they were $3 a piece!  Score!

Step 1. Lay out your Table Runner

The first step to a simple floral centerpiece is always a table runner. A beautiful flower arrangement looks even better when you set up a nice space. Here I used a white tablecloth underneath our table runner.

Step 2. Place your Flowers in the Vases

All I did here was take the tags off of the flowers and place them in the vase.  It does not get any easier than that!!

The deep burgundy color (which is gorgeous) contrasts so beautifully with the white vases.  I added in some gold with the tray and these candle holders because gold is such a Fall color!

Floral centerpiece vases are easy to make and something that takes a little effort to make a big change

Like I mentioned in the last post, I can’t get over how real these flowers look!  I mean just look at the details in the petals!

Step 3. Arrange Vases on Gold Plate Centerpiece

I really love the extra touch the gold dish adds here. It just makes those whites and burgundy colors really pop against the gold. Really this pushes the simple floral centerpiece over the top for me and OMG that look!
