Hospitality should be easy! And creating an environment that is warm and welcoming where guests feel special is what being a good hostess is all about. This Tuscan-inspired Lemon Centerpiece with a farmhouse feel checks all those boxes. This stunning centerpiece comes together in just 5 simple steps but will leave your guests talking long after your gathering is over!
Lemons are so fresh and vibrant. They make a perfect focal point for a variety of get-togethers- backyard parties, special birthdays, showers, ladies events, rehearsal dinners, even weddings! Not to mention this basic centerpiece could be put together with almost any fruit, flowers or a combination of both. There’s just no end to the opportunities for using such an versatile and easy centerpiece!
What You Need To Make This Easy Lemon Centerpiece
- 2 terracotta pots (1 small, 1 medium)
- 2 terracotta trays (1 medium, 1 large
- 2- 3lb bags of lemons
- 20-21 magnolia leaves
Begin with a clean, large terracotta tray and a clean medium sized terracotta pot turned upside down in the center.
Add magnolia leaves. I like to make 3 groups of 4 to 5 leaves around the bottom of the tray.
Add your lemons in groups of threes in the spaces between the groups of leaves. The lemons should overlap the leaves.
Add the smaller tray on top of the first pot to create a second tier. Repeat the steps with the leaves and lemons, this time creating just 2 groups of lemons and leaves instead of 3.
Place a the second, smaller pot filled with lemons in the center of the second tier. I like to add another magnolia leaf or two in the pot just for a finishing touch!
And voila! That’s all it takes to create this fabulous centerpiece perfect for any table or buffet! Complete your decor by adding small pots filled with lemons around on other tables or on each side of this centerpiece. It doesn’t take much to make your guests feel special and your event splendid, but results of good hospitality are never ending!

Do you know what size the pots are?
In the photos, a 6 inch pot and a 10 inch pot are used. But there is no exact way to make this- it can even be made with 3 tiers for a larger table. The design is based more on proportions in keeping with smaller sizes, then moving to medium and larger.
