The flower bunny
As the weather changes and England shakes off its winter coat, Easter arrives to remind us of the new life that is growing in all the beautiful plants around us.
Are you starting to lose sleep over the idea of Easter? How much food to get? Is cousin Bill bringing his latest squeeze? Is there enough room? Flowers! What flowers shall I get?
Well take your panic hat off and throw it away because I am here to hold your hand and guide you through this Easter. Well, on the flower front. I can’t help if cousin Bill brings his date or not.
With our arrangements this week I thought I would show you some fun ideas to spice up your Easter table or your Easter day. Not that there is anything wrong with the old classic of flowers in a vase, but just in case you wanted to add a bit of panache with your Easter.
Here are a few ideas that maybe you’ll want to try out.
Garland by name, garland by nature
Your very own Freddie’s Flower crown. With my last name being Garland I know I’ll be wearing one throughout Easter. And if you make your own please send pictures to us. We would love to see your own flower crowns. Simply made with Pink Floyd alstroemeria, Le Belle roses and pink lisianthus. Bringing a little bit of Woodstock 69 to the table.
Where is Peter Rabbit?
Why not try this rather unique table display? Be warned, Peter Rabbit might try to gatecrash your lunch. But it would be worth it for this winning look.
Wondering what to do with your leftover eggs after breakfast? Here is a lovely idea to spice up the table to make it as Eastery as possible. Empty your old eggs, add water, make a little string nest so they don’t topple over and then hey presto! You’ve got mini egg vases. Perfect for the Easter table.
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Or actually, in this case, do.
Go out and find yourself a hen or if that’s too much faff buy some eggs. Give them a paint and add them in with some of our flowers. They will bring out your inner funky chicken when the kitchen turns into a dance floor after lunch.
Stick to something special.
Whenever I am around and about walking Claude I always pick up things along my way. Sticks and twigs are absolutely perfect for making displays out of. A few coloured eggs, a couple of ribbons and hey-presto you have yourself a wonderful mini Easter egg tree.
Over to you
So at the risk of sounding like a Blue Peter (rabbit) presenter, why not try it out at home and come up with Easter ideas for your table. If you do try any of these out or your own ideas then please do send us a picture as we would love to see our flowers being all clever and brightening up your home this Easter.
