Hello Dear Readers!
It’s been a while
and so many things have happened
in these past two weeks.
We are all moved in the Hickory Cottage
and it was truly a difficult move due to
COVID-19. We could only get professional movers
for 4 hours and there were no professional
house cleaners available either.
So with the help of some friends, who are
truly angels, we got the move done in 5 days!
On a brighter note, today is
Monday Morning Blooms and you will see
Bunnies, Jelly Beans and Easter Joy!
Welcome to Monday Morning Blooms!
Please join Lidy, Mary, Pam and I
for some happy floral inspiration.
Today’s theme will be an Easter Round Up.
Due to many of us adhering to the
“stay at home” situation, getting out to
obtain flowers is difficult, so we
bring you a beautiful round-up for you to enjoy!
My wonderful floral friends images and links
to their creations are at the end of this post.
A vintage Easter basket arrangement filled with
Spring flowers of pink tulips, pink stock,
white and yellow alstroemeria, and white roses.
I so love my ceramic bunnies
with the Golden Easter Egg.
I so remember as a child always
wanting to find that special Golden Egg.
I used the very same bunnies
in this post: Easter Bunny Parade
The bunnies were having fun.
Bunnies with the Golden Egg
purchased from HomeGoods
and the petite bunny dessert plates
are from Pottery Barn.
All purchases made a few years ago.
Another Easter Centerpiece using the bunnies and spring bulbs.
How about some moss covered bunnies
in a pitcher?
Vintage seed packets and robin’s blue eggs
placed in an ironstone bowl.
A happy Spring Flower Arrangement
in a Bunny bucket found at HomeGoods.
Now speaking of Jelly Beans . . .
Let’s see my Jelly Bean tablescape.
The arrangement with jelly beans and peeps
is made with the vase within a vase technique.
Placing a smaller vase inside a larger one
with the smaller vase holding the flowers
and then filling the space between the vases
with jelly beans.
I manipulated the napkin
to look like bunny ears!
Just fold the napkin and leave
two pointed ends out of the glass.
I love making flower arrangements as you know.
Especially happy Spring/Easter arrangements.
I love placing the unexpected
in a floral arrangement.
And I did so in this
Pink peeps among the flowers.
The bunnies with the golden egg return.
The accent plates are Spode floral plates
upon Noritake Summer Estate plate
and a green Franciscan charger.
And I end my Round Up today
with some cute Easter friends
taking a ride in the cart,
wishing everyone a very Happy Easter!
I will be thinking of you all as we
hunker down in our homes
in these most difficult times.
However, we shall overcome this!
We are America Strong!
Now it’s time to visit

Hope you enjoyed our Easter Round Up.
I know that for the most part you all
will be spending it at home and most
of us without the company of our families.
We will get through this!
Stay strong, safe and healthy dear friends!
With love and prayers!
