Learn how to make a foraged spring centerpiece from plants blooming around your home. An easy and inexpensive way to bring the beauty of spring indoors.
You can create a beautiful centerpiece before all of your show-stopping perennials and bushes are in bloom. Just look around at the many blooming trees and bushes this spring.
Foraging for centerpieces can be a fun challenge. You can use anything from items you have planted to those wayward plants growing wild, to create your centerpiece. Don’t discount anything. Unusual branches with buds for texture, leaves in different shapes and shades of green, cuttings leftover from spring pruning all can contribute to a gorgeous arrangement.
As spring emerges, there are all kinds of pretty blooms from trees, shrubs and flowering bulbs. Even the bright green of new leaf growth is pretty enough to use in this arrangement.

Foraged Spring Centerpiece
Walk around and take some cuttings. I still had pruning to do on my viburnum and dogwood so they were easy choices. Also, I had Solomon’s seal that was invading my chives and lily of the valley (somewhat invasive) that was invading a Japanese painted fern. I added a few cuttings from a fothergilla bush and for interest, some viburnum summer snowflake.
Start with some of your strongest pieces first to make a base, such as thicker branches from trees or shrubs.
Build from there, adding smaller stems and flowers.
Lastly, fill in with more delicate plant material and greenery.
A fast and inexpensive way to welcome spring inside your home, with the beauty growing right outside your door.
