Spring in my step

I was just about to go to bed when I checked my email from Martha...and I was in heaven! Just a few days ago I was searching endlessly for beautiful and interesting ways to display Easter/Spring arrangements with not much luck! I really wanted to find something other than your typical flowers in a vase. Now at nearly 1:30am when I should be nestled in my warm bed...I find these gorgeous pictures with some clever ideas! To get the "how to" on some of these ideas, go to: http://www.marthastewart.com/ and search for Everything Easter.

A gorgeous combination of tulips and pussywillows.

How simple and beautiful, but these sweet egg votives do take some work...

See complete directions here.

A combination of tulips and daffodils in a nest makes for a charming centerpeice.

What every girl needs...fresh tulips by the gazillions

Country Living

Country Living uses a decorative canister.

The silver plated vase is from Pottery Barn.

What about using a silver ice bucket to achieve this look?

Martha Stewart shows a natural idea for a spring arrangement! I would think that any log would do, all you'd need are the right tools to drill a hole at the top of your wood large enough for your display.

Ooooooooooooo all these beautiful flowers! I won't see my tulips and daffodils until the first week of May : (

Come on April...let those showers bring the flowers!


  1. Love this post. The first picture of the flowers in egg shells in the egg holder is lovely. I also love the egg shell candles!
