I’m honoured to be a part of the Canadian Bloggers Spring Home Tour that’s happening all this week.
If you’re stopping by for the first time, my name is Jamie and I’m from Vancouver, BC. In a nutshell I love all things French Vintage. You can read more about me here.
I had a French vintage spring tour last week and before that a spring kitchen tour. With all the tours and projects I’ve been making, I have had a lot of flowers in the house for photo shoots so today is a round-up of all the gorgeous flowers that have been shot around my house.
If you’re a French vintage loving girl like myself, you might have one of these French bottle drying racks in your home. They are used now as a cup rack.
I’ll show you to make your own floral centrepiece from one. It’s such an easy way to make a floral centrepiece for your dining table for Easter, a birthday party or on your kitchen counter.
Let’s get started!
These fragrant hyacinths are a beautiful way to bring spring into your home. The smell is just delicious.
Just some simple carnations along with some greenery make a pretty statement.
I even added them to little pitchers to bring some pink prettiness to the living room.
It’s amazing what some flowers and pink pillows do to a room.

Next Monday I’ll be sharing with you how to put this Peter Rabbit inspired Easter table step by step.
I found so many great finds from Home Sense.
These are all the flowers waiting to be arranged in the bottle drying rack.
This little project was so easy to make.

Now I’ll show you how to make your own floral centrepiece from a bottle drying rack.
- French bottle drying rack / cup rack
- Easter eggs with twine or ribbon
- about 3 dozen long-stemmed roses (I used pink and white)
- about 6 large hydrangea (I used white)
- 1 large vase, some small cups lower flowers
- Add the Easter eggs to every holder. Place your centrepiece in the area where it will stay as it will be difficult to move later.
- Fill a vase with water and put the drying rack over it.
- Start adding roses from the middle and up to the drying rack keeping the stems long. The roses that get placed in the middle (from the top of the vase) will need to have shorter stems. Add to the drying rack then cut the stems to determine the right height.
- The lower roses will need smaller cups of water around the big vase. Find narrow shot glasses if you need something skinny to fit around it.
- Stick the 6 big hydrangea at the very bottom part of the rack to fill in the space.
I really like how it turned out! It’s such a fun way to use an everyday object in a unique way.
It looks so pretty with the Easter egg stick decor too and a crock full of azaleas.
I have to give thanks for the roses: the pink ones are from my boyfriend Aaron, thanks honey! And my girlfriend Allison came by with the white roses. Thanks girl!
See what happens when I get flowers?? 🙂
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Be sure to catch all the Canadian tours now below!
