Need an inexpensive and easy Easter wedding centerpiece idea? We’ve got some really cute centerpiece designs you can DIY to help bring out the theme for your Easter Wedding. Have fun with the projects below!
This centerpiece design is so simple to put together for yourself and get professional looking results. A clear vase or jar is filled with Easter eggs and a generous arrangement of spring flowers. Florists and wedding decorators would charge you several times what it will cost you to make this centerpiece for yourself – especially if you shop dollar stores for supplies like the Easter eggs, the glass plates, and the clear vases or jars.
When it comes to the actual flowers though, be careful about dollar store flowers if you are going for a very realistic, quality look. Either use fresh flowers, as is the case in the centerpiece shown here, or be really picky in shopping for good quality silk flowers that look as close to real as possible, other wise, a perfectly fabulous centerpiece design will end up looking “cheap”. There’s no reason to shy away from silk flowers, there are many that are so realistic looking you literally have to touch them to know they are not real. But unfortunately, the flowers you find in dollar stores are typically not of that quality level (although, of course, there are always exceptions.
Egg Filled Vase: How to Make this Easy Easter Wedding Centerpiece
(As shown in the photo above)
Putting this centerpiece together is super-easy, even though its super-cute!
- For each centerpiece you’ll need a large mason jar or canning jar (if you are going for a rustic, country, or barn style wedding), or a clear cylindrical vase.
- Fill the vase or jar with colored decorative Easter eggs – inexpensive plastic ones are just fine.
- Take a bundle of spring flowers (be sure to include tulips – they are the ultimate spring flower; you can also choose to include daffodils, roses, crysanthemums), arrange them into a nicely shaped bouquet in your hands, and then insert the stems into the center of the vase, so they slide down between the Easter eggs. Make adjustments to the arrangement as necessary to ensure the flowers are well spaced and the design has a good sense of balance and proper shape.
- If using fresh flowers you will need to make sure you provide them with a source of water. You can get water tubes from florist shops; the tubes go on to the bottom of each stem to keep it fed with water for hours. There are also gel crystals available from floral shops which you hydrate with water, then place inside the vase (hidden by the Easter eggs) and they will keep the flowers hydrated for the length of the wedding reception.
- TIP: Make sure you don’t go too skimpy on the flowers. The bouquet should have a good sense of fullness to it in order to achieve a pleasing, abundant look.
There you have it – an easy Easter wedding centerpiece that literally takes only minutes to put together, but looks like you paid top dollar to a professional wedding decorator!

Here’s really easy, but beautiful, Easter Wedding Centerpiece idea. It’s simple, but so pretty.
If your wedding falls around Easter, create a theme for your wedding around the holiday. An Easter wedding will be additionally memorable for guests. The Easiest place to start is with your wedding centerpieces. This one is so simple, and yet incredibly pretty. You can easily do this yourself and save a ton of money over hiring a decorating or floral designer.
Here’s How to Make this Easter Wedding Centerpiece
- For each Easter wedding centerpiece you will need a dish with semi-tall sides to contain the flowers and ensure your Easter egg candles stay securely in place. Ideally try to find a dish in pastel Easter colors, or stick with plain white.
- Easter eggs candles should be relatively easy to find if you shop during the Easter season. Check candle specialty stores and the seasonal department of Home Decor stores or department stores. Dollar stores often have Easter eggs candles in the weeks leading up to Easter, but be careful there – often the candles sold by dollar stores have very short burn times. You don’t want your centerpieces to be reduced to a clump of melted wax before dinner is even over! Be sure to know the burn time on the candles you buy. If you can’t find Easter egg candles in local stores, do a search online and you’ll certainly find sources that offer them.
- Arrange the Easter egg candles around the perimeter of the dish, allowing a little bit of space between each for your filler flowers. Once you have the candles positioned around the edge of the dish, fill in the center with more candles, evenly spaced. If you want to use fewer candles for budgetary reasons, use a smaller dish, or simply use more filler flowers to fill in the space. However, Keep in mind, that if you use too few candles and leave too much space between them, your centerpiece will look skimpy – its a fine line, so walk it carefully!
- Cover the plate and fill in the spaces with delicate, tiny filler flowers such as Baby’s Breath. The key here really is to make sure the flowers are the delicate, tiny type because larger flowers will tend to compete visually with the egg candles – it will simply be too much for the eye, and you don’t want that. Let the Easter eggs be the star of the show. Keep in mind, too, that, aside from white which you see most often, Baby’s Breath is also available in pink and mauve which are perfect Easter colors. So feel free to use one of the colored Baby’s Breath varieties, or do a mix of pink, mauve and white, or any combination thereof.
- That’s it – you’re done! Easy, wasn’t it?
