Add these elements to your centerpiece to create a unique spring vintage centerpiece of your own.

Elements of a Spring Vintage Centerpiece

Tablecloth or runner

Add a table cloth or runner to add color to your bare wood tables. I used a filmy green tablecloth under my centerpiece, but boho or burlap table runners would also make for a pretty and neutral table covering to go in the center of your table.

Flower Centerpiece Arrangement

Using flowers as the centerpiece of your table arrangement is the perfect way to make your home feel like spring. It doesn’t matter if you use fresh flowers or fake. The key to creating a vintage feel to your table centerpieces is using a vintage vase or bottle as the main focal point of your centerpiece. Fill it with neutral flowers or add a spring color palette to your floral arrangements to brighten up your table.

Using taller flowers, like these faux dog wood branches, add height and variety to your centerpiece and draw your eye to the spring blossoms.

The vintage style bottle I used in my spring tablescape I found in the woods behind an old cabin, but you can look for bottles like these at an antique store, thrift store, or garage sales too.

I used faux reindeer moss and sprinkled it in my dishes to add more greenery and create a spring feel.

Vintage pieces

Use various vintage pieces of different shapes and different heights to complete the centerpiece.

Vintage silver dishes on table

A brass vessel or silver vessel is a beautiful addition to a vintage table centerpiece and provides a rustic elegance to your table decor.

Vintage centerpiece ideas like these would also work great as cheap wedding centerpieces.

You can make them as elaborate or simple as you would like. Just add flowers that match your wedding colors and keep the vintage pieces neutral.

You can make unique and awesome vintage wedding centerpieces by visiting your local thrift store and combining nostalgic antiques with your wedding colors.

Where can you find vintage pieces for your centerpiece?

All of the metal dishes I used in this photo were left in our fixer upper home when we purchased it.

However, you can find a lot of fun pieces at local thrift stores, antique stores, or garage sales.

  1. I’m loving the moss with the brass on your Spring table setting! It pairs so well. I actually inherited some brass from my grandfather and you’ve insured me to use it!
    Thanks for joining us on the blog hop it was so nice to have you and see your beautiful table!

    • I was actually going to get rid of it because it had been left in the house when we bought it and I had no attachment to it! Then I set it out this spring and I love how it looks with the moss! I’m so glad that I held on to it because I think it will be coming out in the future again. Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of the blog hop with you. It was so much fun!
