A kitchen island is a handy location for food preparation, but it is also a showplace. When not in use it can be embellished with unique centerpieces that coordinate with any season, style or celebration. They do not have to come from a store. Some of the most striking centerpieces for a kitchen island are assembled using creativity, imagination and personal style. Unique details and creative combinations are some of the most impressive of all when decorating the heart of the home.
Create Fall Centerpieces in Baskets with Foliage and Fruit
One of my favorite fall centerpieces for a kitchen island includes autumn foliage and fruit. A pretty woven basket can be partially filled with something to build up the interior. I used shredded art-quality tissue paper in gold and green. As the photo shows, I topped it with dried fall leaves. I topped the leaves with faux fruit and additional dried foliage. Unique fall centerpieces will bring the beauty of fall into the home, and a kitchen island is a great place to start.
Assemble Summer Centerpieces with Clear Vessels of Citrus
My favorite way to assemble kitchen island centerpieces for summer is also one of the easiest. Buy clear vessels that will accommodate at least a half dozen whole citrus fruits. Lemons, limes, tangerines and other small citrus fruits are ideal. Clear glass containers in a variety of shapes are available in craft stores. I filled a tall clear glass vessel with distilled water, two limes, two lemons, two tangerines and opalescent decorative marbles. The kitchen island centerpiece became the focal point of the room. It looked phenomenal, and I received numerous compliments on the compilation.
Display a Colorful Trio of Spring Bulb Flowers and More
The beauty of spring bulb flowers can be enjoyed all year long when the bulbs are forced to bloom indoors. They make gorgeous centerpieces for a kitchen island, especially in early spring when outdoor flowers and foliage are just beginning to come back to life. Consider displaying a colorful trio of spring bulb flowers in the center of a kitchen island. Buy three planters of the same style, and enjoy hyacinths, crocuses or other favorite varieties. Force the bulbs indoors, or buy the plants from a store. Three plants are better than one, especially when creating centerpieces that will beautify a kitchen island.
