Easter Egg Tree Centerpiece Ideas

This pretty Easter Egg Tree centerpiece idea was sent in by HWTM reader Virginia Bell. I love the simple-chic style and the fact that she included the phrase “I literally pulled it together in about 10 minutes!” with the submission. Gotta love quick & easy! =)

Easter Egg Tree Centerpiece Ideas

Read on for the DIY details, as told by Virginia…


When I was growing up, my Mom had an easter tree that I absolutely adored. The ornaments for the tree consisted of delicate, pastel, hand-painted wooden eggs and my sibling and I would look forward to decorating the tree every spring.

The other day I was at one of my favorite locally-owned floral and gift boutiques, Celebrations, and stumbled across these fabulous, over-sized, brightly-colored sisal eggs (the manufacturer/brand is Raz Imports).

The eggs conveniently had a clear wire looped through the top, so I immediately thought of the Easter tree from my youth and realized that these whimsical eggs could be a fun, fresh, & updated spin on the traditional Easter Tree.

I found some Japanese tulip branches at the craft store (Hobby Lobby), secured them in a large white, urn-shaped planter by using floral foam at the bottom, looped the eggs onto the branches, and Voila! –  a 2010-appropriate Easter Tree.

I already had the moss bunny and carrot from last Easter (Celebrations, again!), so to dress up the carrot I tied some orange & green grosgrain ribbon around the neck of the carrot.”


Thanks for the inspiration, Virginia!

P.S. In image #2 above, the Easter Egg Tree centerpiece is featured on top of Virginia’s Tablevogue cover, which you might remember from this earlier post, and pictured directly above is a shot of the Tablevogue accented with colorful grosgrain ribbon at the pleats… super cute idea for spring tables!

    Very cute! I love how the big eggs look as opposed to the traditional small ones.

    Oh how I miss my favorite gift shop/florist, CELEBRATIONS! Thank you for this post, Jen and Virgina! The egg tree is adorable and I am now on a mission to try and duplicate it for my own Easter table! I currently live in San Diego, but am originally from Pensacola, FL, where CELEBRATIONS is located and wish I could find the same type of store out here. Thanks for the precious idea!!!

    Thanks for the great idea! I LOVE Celebrations…brought back memories of my first apartment in Pensacola as a young bride. I used to walk to Celebrations to look at all their wonderful flowers and gifts! Thanks for a walk down memory lane…

    Love those eggs. The colors are beautiful. Our tree has hard painted wooden eggs and those would be a nice complement. The moss rabbit is adorable too.

    I love using branches for centerpieces and I love how they can be used for every season. For Spring this year, I used square glass vase, put my styrofoam in and covered it with moss. I attached faux cherry blossom flowers to the branches (found at Ikea last year) and small bird ornaments. Butterflies look nice also. In the winter, I cover the branches with a glitter that looks like snow and hang snowflake ornaments or whatever. Manzanita branches also work beautifully!
