Title: Easy Easter Arrangement
Every spring event needs a floral flourish, and this one for Easter is oh-so-simple and can be made using items you have around the house.
We selected a mix of spring flowers in a dual color palette: shades of white and green. We shopped a local grocery store for a selection of tulips, mini calla lilies, freesia, ferns, and bear grass. We spent $19.95 on the bouquet.
From my vase shelf I found a tall cylinder vase (it might have begun life as a candle holder) and a pretty mid-century dessert bowl with a blue glaze on the inside. Floral tape, ric rac, and a chocolate robin's egg rounded out the supplies.
The first step was to wrap the cylinder with the foliage. I placed the bear grass and fern fronds against the cylinder and held it in place with the sticky floral tape.
I bundled the blossoms in mixed clusters and added them to the side of the cylinder and continued to wrap with tape until the entire vase was covered.
Floral tape is a really useful craft supply that can be found at Michael's in the floral supply aisle.
To hide the floral tape, I bound the entire bouquet with vintage ric rac, but twine, ribbon, or new ric rac will work just as well.
I selected a modern salad bowl to hold the arrangement and keep the flowers hydrated. Place the cylinder in the bowl and fill with water (replenish daily with water for longevity).
I found these blue chocolate robin's eggs at my childhood candy store and instantly loved the color and nod to Easter and spring. I purchased a half pound for $3.95.
This detail of the arrangement shows how the flowers ring the glass cylinder to create a perfect nest for perching a bowl of candy or even floating candles.
Fill a dessert bowl with candy and place the arrangement on a side board, entry way, or dining table.
