Easter Brunch Table SettingAs I was sitting on my sofa the other night, admiring all the wonderful glassware pieces  that my mom had so carefully kept, I thought, what a wonderful way to honor my mom and use some of them to make our Easter table shine. That’s how this table centerpiece got started.  Then out into the garden I went to find some colorful kumquats from my tree that is just loaded with fruit this year. All that rain I guess!  Using more than just flowers, can make for a colorful table and such a feel good project as well reduce your centerpiece costs.   Bon Appetite !


  • 3 Old jars or glassware, 1 smaller in height
  • 2 Candle holders, with wide base
  • 1 Bunch fresh fruit or flowers
  • Moss, enough to stick out 1″ around bottom of jar
  • 2 Votive candles
  • 2 Card stock papers, contrasting colors
  • 1 Flower, paper or sticker
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Aspirin
  • Water
  • Optional: Ribbon


The old glassware can be found in many places . Check your moms basement, storage or back room. Flee Markets, swap meets, thrift stores and garage sales are great places to pick up some wonderful discards. And of course, there is always the antique stores. But I would check other less expensive places first. Flowers, your own back yard, Farmers Markets, & flower stands are my favorite outside of my own yard. Other items can be found at your local craft store.


  1. Gather or buy jars or glassware that are at different heights and widths if you like.
  2. Pick or buy fruit branches with the fruit and leaves still on them. Wild flowers with great color and different flower shapes make for a interesting arrangement also.
  3. Cut stems to a size that will fit low in your smaller container.
  4. Place 2 jars on top of upside down candle holders, to give the jars height. Optional: Tie colorful ribbons around top of jars. Place the smaller jar in the center of the two larger jars, on a circle of moss.
  5. Crush an Aspirin into the fruit or flower water and pour into the container.
  6. Place votive candles into the taller jars.
  7. Place fruit or flowers into the smaller jar & enjoy the color and memories!
  8. Cut 2 pieces of contrasting card stock for place card. One 4  1/4″ x 5 1/2″ , fold in half and the other 3 1/4″ x 2″.
  9. Glue the smaller piece in the center of the folded larger card. In the right hand corner glue a small flower.
  10. Optional: Tie ribbon around the top of the jars, tie in back.

Tip: Use a long wood match stick to light the votive candles or an long handled butane lighter.
