5 minute Spring centerpiece

You know what I like sometimes?
Something simple.

Even better if that something simple has big impact in a space
and is easy to put together in just about 5 minutes.

I also love something blooming.

The other day
I spent a few minutes clipping flowering branches
off of the camellia tree.

Those pretty pink blooms mixed with dark green leaves
are enough to make a big impact either way...
but placed inside a rustic wood box

well, that is even better.

This cedar box is one I have used in several ways
definitely a good diy when I made it a couple years ago
and I love it on a table or mantel filled with flowers.

It is perfect filled with flowers indoors or out
filled with dried hydrangeas 

mason jars and stock

But right now,
  I am kind of partial to it filled with those pretty pink camellia blooms.
