This grocery store centerpiece was created as part of a sponsored post for Market Street. #MarketStreetTX
I love creating centerpieces for a pretty tablescape or a holiday table. Sometimes centerpieces seem overwhelming but I want to show you how easy it is to create something beautiful with this simple tutorial: how to create a grocery store centerpiece.
When I was in Iowa this summer, I had the chance to listen to Nancy Hopkins share some tips on creating a simple centerpiece. I loved her ideas and now I want to pass them on to you!
Shop at Market Street for a monochromatic mix of produce and floral items. I chose green as the color for this centerpiece so I bought apples, limes, and kale in the produce department, then grabbed some berries, fluffy greenery, and whimsical owls in the floral department. Grapes, avocadoes, and artichokes would all have been beautiful as well.
To make the centerpiece, start with a platter and a bowl or dish. To build this centerpiece, I used a large white platter and topped it with a Lodge rectangular roaster that I elevated with two other dishes. I love the versatility of Lodge cookware and bakeware. It’s perfect for creating a centerpiece like this one, just right for serving a meal to the family, and fabulous for cooking and baking. The bakeware is microwave, dishwasher, oven, and freezer safe and the enameled cast iron cookware can be used for marinating, cooking, serving, and storing food. Right now, every ten dollars spent at Market Street will earn you one e-sticker in your rewards account. The stickers can be accumulated and traded in for Lodge cookware and bakeware.
Once the dishes are in place, begin with your largest, most abundant item like the apples. Casually place the apples around the platter and in the top dish, stacking them as you wish.
Add the next fruit in among the first, just randomly placing things where you think they’ll look best, filling in a large portion of the dish and platter.
Fill spaces with bushy pieces of kale …
… and then place the whimsical objects among the produce. A whimsical object isn’t necessary but it does add a fun touch and can be a great way to add a seasonal twist.
Fill in the remaining spots with the items from the floral department. I used berries …
… and lush, light greenery, but you could also use flowers, pinecones, or any natural element that matches the centerpiece.
That’s it! So easy and it looks beautiful! The mix of tones and textures work together to create a fabulous centerpiece. And the best part? When you’re finished with the centerpiece, the kids can eat the fruit! A total win, right?
