We’ve seen many types of crazy and unique centerpieces, but this one is completely amazing! Though there is a small rose bouquet in the middle of the table, we can’t stop looking up at these umbrellas that capture the attention more than the centerpieces do. This surprising element really provides the wow-factor for this space. We also love the gold incorporated into this color palette because it defies the typical spring pastel and really makes the pinks pop!

We can’t forget about the positive outcome of the April showers, which of course is the blooming of May flowers! These marshmallow tulips are a great dessert option for an event that does not have a cake (or just go for both). The pearl sprinkles that fall on top of the marshmallows give an elegant touch to this sweet treat!
