If you're looking for a simple and super cute Easter arrangement, look no further.
I've just returned home from a very inspiring gardening symposium and luncheon. On the registration table was the arrangement pictured above.
I took 2 quick pictures so I would remember how it was done. As I was driving home I was thinking maybe some of you might be interested in this idea too. I plan to make one to set on my kitchen island for Easter. This is where we all congregate to eat appetizers and visit. I thought this would be a cheerful addition.
To accomplish this look you will need:
a clear cylinder shaped vase
a thinner cylinder shaped vase (to fit inside & hold flowers)
Make sure there is enough room between the two cylinders to fit the Peeps in. Fill the center cylinder with water and flowers of your choice (they used daffodils, gerbera daisies and forsythia).
For this arrangement, they had a layer of mini marshmallows on the bottom, then a row of yellow Peeps, a row of blue Peeps, another row of yellow Peeps and another layer of mini marshmallows on top.
So there you have it... a bit of Easter inspiration for you.
The speaker at the symposium was James Farmer.
He is a young gardener, author, floral designer, cook and garden to table lifestyle expert. He is also an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine.
He inspired us with photos of his amazing landscape and floral work while entertaining us with stories of growing up on a farm in Georgia and attending college at Auburn.
When I made reservations for the symposium I discovered that he has a blog called All Things Farmer. He shares all kinds of fun things over there... even his sweet tea recipe.
Now, I need to get busy decorating my house for Easter.
It sure is coming up fast this year.
Wasn't it just Christmas??
