One of my favourite things about this time of year is the wonderful variety of flowers that are coming into bloom, just in time to celebrate Easter!
Two Tonnes of Tulips
It’s as if the seasons perfectly align with Easter just to gift us with these beautiful egg-shaped blooms! Tulips are the cornerstone of Easter decor. No need to mix in other flowers or greenery, or take attention away from their simplistic beauty with a fancy vase. Just stick them in a metal bucket, mason jar or jug and you’re ready to go!
I love this idea of a single tulip at each place setting for Easter lunch. So simple, yet sophisticated. The linen ticking ribbon and matching napkin gives this table setting a gorgeous rustic charm – also, don’t overwhelm the tablescape with a table cloth or placemats – keep it charmingly simple!
Go for the galvanised-chic look this Easter. Plant hyacinths, tulips or other bulb flowers in a galvanised tub. Display on your coffee table or next to your front door. Plant moss around the bulbs for added rustic charm.
Pastel, speckled eggs, copper baskets and baby’s breath were made to be together! Easter time is bb’s time to shine!
Is there anything cuter than these miniature eggshell planters?! Spray paint them for added festive charm or just leave them natural for a more organic look. Empty egg cartons can be bought at craft stores. Fill a carton with half ‘planter eggs’, half ‘whole eggs’ to create an adorable centrepiece.
Side note: Don’t forget to drain the ‘whole-eggs’!
Alternatively, plant grass seedlings.
It wouldn’t be Spring without the sweet fragrance of hyacinths in the air. These little guys are the next best thing to tulips at Easter time!
Carry on the Easter theme into your bathrooms and kitchen. Create a cute colour coordinated display of flowers, hand towels and soaps for your guests to enjoy.
Daffs are a bright alternative to pastel tulips and hyacinths, and cost roughly $1.99 a bunch. Display them by the stem, or by the bucket load (and for just $1.99 a bunch – why wouldn’t you?!)
