Easter Flowers

Can you believe Easter is this month?  It’s so early this year!  I’ve got a few Easter posts in store for you, and we’ll kick off the little series today with some flower inspiration.

Flowers are your easiest and most accessible decorating tool.  They’re in your yard, or the furthest away they’ll be is the grocery store.  I think flowers are my favorite way to invoke a little spring happiness in my space.  When I was going to design school, my instructor told us her main rule about flowers:

“Trust the flowers to be beautiful.”

What she meant by this was to just throw ’em in a vase and be done with them.  They’re already beautiful.

I think on any given day I would have to agree with her — this is sort of the motto I’ve adopted.  But for a special occasion, it’s nice to do a little something extra.

Use what you have on-hand to make your flower arrangement unique.  Candy, veggies, eggs — those are all good things to use as a springboard.
