Last year, Adam and I were fortunate enough to celebrate Easter with his family back in Massachusetts! It was really nice to be able to spend the holiday with family--we enjoyed catching up with his side of the family, and had a great time watching all the kids go on an Easter egg hunt in the backyard. 

This year, like many other years, we're having friends over for Easter brunch! We like to keep things casual but always try our best to have our home inviting and well-decorated, so our friends who come over feel the same sort of comfort we do when we visit with family for the holiday. 

There has been an overwhelming amount of lemons sprouting from the trees in our neighborhood, so I felt inspired to create our Easter brunch centerpiece themed around spring lemons! Today, I'm sharing a step-by-step tutorial on how to re-create this brunch centerpiece as well as a free spring printable download!




DIY Easter Brunch Centerpiece

For my Easter brunch centerpiece, I included a DIY shabby chic mason jar vase coupled with a printable and a vase of lemons and limes. To recreate this brunch centerpiece you will need: a regular mason jar, twine, a hot glue gun, scissors, flowers, a plain white frame, my printable, a vase, and a half dozen lemons and limes. 

A simple mason jar wrapped in twine is the perfect spring brunch centerpiece! It works wonderfully as a shabby chic vase for some fresh flowers from the garden, and it very affordable to create. 



First, you will begin wrapping the twine around the jar to get an idea if you have enough. I only like to cover my jar about half way with twine, so I began by unraveling the twine and wrapping it around the mason jar to make sure I have enough before I begin glueing. 

Next, grab your hot glue gun and secure one end of the twine to the mason jar. Ensure that it is dry before you begin to wrap, as to avoid the twine from slipping around and creating a messy effect. 


Tightly wrap the twine just over the top of the last piece you went over, as to ensure the twine is close together but not stacking on top of each piece. 

Continue wrapping until your mason jar is as covered as you'd like, and then glue the end the twine where you want on the mason before you cut the end. 


Once the final piece of glue is dry, carefully snip away the end with scissors and fill your vase with some water and fresh flowers!

Save the printable from this Google Documents file and print it and use it for your own personal use. Please do not redistribute this printable or claim it as your own. The file is a PDF ready to print on 8.5" x 11" paper--you can also resize it to fit any photo frame 8" x 10" or smaller. 



Whenever I can incorporate fresh fruit into a centerpiece I take advantage of it, and nothing says spring quite like a vase filled with fresh lemons and limes from the tree! Our neighborhood has a surplus of citrue trees, so we just plucked a few from our tree to include in our vase.


For a more cohesive brunch centerpiece, stick to the same aesthetic whenever you can. What I mean by this is if you are using a brown twine on a mason jar, try to incorporate that into more than one part of the centerpiece like in the picture frame or vase. Similarly, try to match the color of your flowers to something in your centerpiece (since I prefer classic white picture frames, I opted for white flowers for my centerpiece). 

Once my table centerpiece was put together, I just needed to grab everything I needed for the actual Easter brunch! I grabbed a handful of things from our neighborhood Walmart including some fresh fruit, orange juice, deli meat with the other ingredients for pinwheels, a blueberry loaf from the bakery, and Marie Callender’s® Lemon Meringue Pie from the freezer section. 



Grabbing Marie Callender’s® Lemon Meringue Pie and a pre-made blueberry loaf from Walmart gave me back plenty of time I would have spent baking in the kitchen, and freed up some time for me to focus on creating a homemade, affordable DIY table centerpiece for our Easter brunch with friends! 

What I love most about  Marie Callender’s® pies is that they are made with wholesome and real ingredients, and they taste homemade without having to put in the extra effort to make pie myself! Next time you visit your neighborhood Walmart, look out for Marie Callender’s® pies--they are affordable and convenient and make a delicious addition to any Easter or spring get-together!
