Yesterday I showed you a really cute flower arrangement in a festive Easter theme that I wanted to copy. Well mine didn't turn out nearly as cute and I didn't want to show it to you at all. I am doing it though because I figure if you decide to tackle it you can learn from my mistakes so here goes.
- 2 square vases. They can be any size as long as one fits inside the oher.
- flowers of your choice
Cut flowers to fit inside the small vase and fill. Place the small vase inside the large. The spaces in between the 2 vases are what you will fill with your jelly beans and peeps.
- The inside vase is about 2" shorter than the outside one which means that the flowers don't flow over the side like I wanted. Instead they stand up because they're being supported by the 2" outer wall. If I was to do it again I would look for another vase that is thinner but exactly or almost exactly the same height.
- The peeps that I bought are too chubby for the space so I couldn't use them. It still looks cute with just jelly beans but I really love the way the peeps give it a whimsical quality.
Aside from that, the biggest problem I foresee with this arrangement is dealing with the mysterious disappearing jellybeans. "Who ate those" I'll scream. "Not me." "Not me". "Not me" they will all lie. Musta been the Easter Bunny.
Good Friday is a school holiday so we are officially on a nice 4-day break. We have no big dinner plans as we have no family here...sniff! We will be tackling our overgrown weed garden as well as doing some outdoor projects, going for a hike, hanging out with friends, enjoying some delicious wine and overall just loving the relaxing weekend. Happy Easter everyone!
