How To Create a Spring Centerpiece For Under $30!

Phew....this week has been a whirlwind; I am just returning home from visiting my family in Michigan for the week where it snowed nonstop! It felt a little bit strange to have this blog planned for today while I was there with so much snow on the ground (12+ inches to be exact) but as I made my way south today I was reminded that spring really is just around the corner! I was happy to see no snow in my neck of the woods when returning home! Praise the lamb!

I thought it would be fun to do a little series on spring decor and how best to implement those beautiful green touches into your home at a small price! I was first inspired to write this blog when I walked into the Target "dollar spot" the other day (I know all you other moms are nodding in agreement to this statement) and with all the cute tin basins and trays, I could NOT resist! So I thought why not do a quick blog about how to create the perfect spring centerpiece to begin implementing those beautiful pops of green into your home; if we are being honest with ourselves, we all shop at the Target dollar spot so we can all accomplish this look!

After I found THOSE awesome items, I went on another little adventure. If you live in the central Illinois region you may have heard of the amazingly gorgeous Prairie Gardens (it's this home and garden shop that is absolutely TO DIE FOR). Anyways...I went there next to find the perfect greenery for my centerpiece! There I found these gorgeously made faux succulent balls that were the perfect way to add some much needed green fullness to my centerpiece without completely overwhelming the piece all together. Plus they were only $5/ball (normally $8)! Cha-Ching!
