Royal Spring Centerpiece

My sister bought me a crown!
Baby's Breath

She must think I am a princess!

Or maybe she finally realized that it's not a joke, I really am the Queen of Everything!

No matter what her reason was for buying me the crown that was on sale, marked down to a closeout price, I LOVE it!!!

I knew my crown needed to be seen, so I decided to make a royal spring centerpiece.

When Pookie (my sister) gave me the crown it was a chippy blue.
 I needed my crown to be a noticeable bright chippy white, so I painted it.

I started gathering some treasures to surround my crown.

These cute ceramic birds added some spring to the centerpiece.

I considered adding this wire egg basket to the display but it wasn't really giving off a royal vibe.

I knew I needed something a little Easter-y so I went with some gold eggs in the picture below.
 I mean this is a "royal" centerpiece!

Still not able to get past the egg idea, I filled up this wire cloche with eggs....unbelievably I didn't break one egg!!!

As much as I liked the way this looked, my husband said he would prefer for us to eat our eggs rather than display them in a royal centerpiece.
 He is weird like that sometimes, obviously he is not a blogger!

Then the untrained decorator part of me thought it would look nice with some tall candlesticks to balance everything out.

 And just like a real princess I declared that I was right about the candlesticks!
Therefore I present you the official royal spring centerpiece!

I want to thank my sister for my crown! 
It's funny she is always mentioning what a royal pain in the "behind" I am.
Just kidding, she loves me...I mean she bought me this crown....just like I ordered her I mean asked her to.

Can you guess who's who in our baby picture?
My sister is gazing into the future deciding how she wants to conquer the world! 
I look like someone was dangling a french fry in front of me!

Have a wonderful day,


  1. Very pretty, Lori! What a good sister! Your centerpiece looks great and, it's funny, but I use my tall candlesticks the same way. I think I put everything but candles on them! Happy Easter!

    1. Thx Kathy!! That's funny, I just bought silver globes for some silver candlesticks I have. I like displaying things on them! Thx for stopping by!

  2. Why your Majesty, what a beautiful crown your sister bought you! You have decorated it up wonderfully inside and out! I thoroughly enjoyed your post about it too! :) Love that your hubby doesn't think eggs are for decorating - had the same reaction from mine when I used them on my Easter table!
