Happy Friday everyone!
It is a happy day because it is Floral Friday,
when I join three of my wonderfully
talented blogger friends
to give you some great floral inspiration.
Today, for your enjoyment and ideas
for using flowers for Easter, is my
Floral Friday Easter Basket Centerpiece
I had packed away most of my baskets,
so I was hard pressed to find
a basket for my centerpiece.
I was shopping the house and for some reason,
something made me look up
and there it was . . . on the ledge over the door with other large baskets.
Whew! One that did not get packed and stored.
I found a bowl to place in the basket
so that I can fill it with floral foam.
A perfect fit . . . a Lenox pasta bowl.
Do you see something familiar?
They’re baaaack . . . the Bunnies with the Golden Egg. 🙂
Do you see ears peeking through the flowers?
I placed one of the bunnies on the handle of the basket
using a thick layer of poster putty to adhere it to the handle.
Rather than using a runner or a tablecloth, I used a pretty scarf
that my friend Linda gifted to me
(a gift from her Italy trip).
The idea recently came from my friend and fellow
Floral Friday contributor, Pam (Everyday Living).
All of the flowers come from
the wonderful Trader Joe’s.
Cream colored roses, yellow and
cream alstroemerias, pink tulips,
pink Stock, eucalyptus for filler,
and unknown pink petite flowers on woody stems.
The scarf was gently arranged around the basket.
I had so much fun making this Easter Basket arrangement.
I have to admit that I tweaked it a few times.
The basket is large and initially
the arrangement turned out quite large.
Can you imagine it being larger?!
I cut the stems down a bit,
tweaked it here and there as you would
a vignette with too much stuff,
or taking away one piece of jewelry from an outfit.
We Floral Friday ladies love bringing
great floral inspiration for you to enjoy.
Who doesn’t need a bit of floral therapy?!!!
