With Easter and other celebrations going on this time of year I thought I’d share a couple of simple ways that I decorate. There are beautiful signs of spring emerging and all it takes is a couple of branches or seasonal flowers to dress up the table.
1. Forage from the Yard & Display in Glass Jars
This is what we have in our yard right now – Hellebores, branches from our maple tree & these blossoms.
For a low effort & high impact display I use recycled jars to showcase each flower or branch. They can be spread out along the table or clustered together.
This is from a couple of years ago in our last home, highlighting daffodils, hyacinths, serviceberry & maple branches.
2. Use a Potted Hydrangea to Clip a few Blossoms
If you don’t have a yard to clip branches and flowers from (or if you love hydrangeas), I like to cut a few blossoms from a potted plant. I only take 3 which is barely noticeable from a plant this size.
Make sure to treat the flowers to prevent them from wilting by sicking about 1 cm of the bottom of the stem in boiling water for a few seconds.
Add a couple of branches found on the ground during a walk and there’s a bonus way to spread flowers around the house. Or buy a bunch of tulips and add a few found sticks to make the arrangement more interesting.
Even though celebrations are still small this year, a couple of little details like fresh branches or flowers can make the occasion feel more special without a lot of extra effort.
