Spring Blooms for the Table
Brightly colored spring flowers are the ultimate decorating accessory. and paired with simple votive candles make pretty accents for your spring table.
I love to bunch a group of them in the center of my round outdoor table, and scatter them down the center of my kitchen table for a vivid tablescape.
I have also fashioned about sixty bright yellow ones for a wedding cocktail reception, they were gorgeousness! ( not to mention easy to make and very affordable)
These vibrant melon colored faux dahlias are perfect to welcome the new season. Dahlias are a showy flower, and available in a wide range of colors, so choose any shade that compliments your spring decor or party theme. These are made with faux dahlia blooms found at the local craft store, but other blossoms like large garden roses, peonies, and small cabbages would make fantastic flowery votives.

Glue bottom of glass votive to center of blossom, add candle. Done! a vivid floral accent for your spring table!
How easy is that?
The sun is shining, time to get outside and enjoy the longer days. Get digging in the garden, plant some color to make your house, and you, happy.
