easter chicksAdding creatively arranged flowers or handmade centerpieces along with colourful easter eggs of Easter decor will make your home and your festive dinner table more appealing – and it doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are a couple of my favourites to give you an idea or two – do not be afraid to get creative, use your favourite flowers and enjoy your holiday! 

Sweet Surprise

How to Make this Pretty centerpiece:

  • Trace the mouth of a paper cup onto paper.
  • Draw petals around the circle you traced; each petal should be about 2 inches long.
  • Trace this flower shape onto coloured paper and cut it out.
  • Pierce the center of the flower with a pencil.
  • Cut triangles from this center hole out toward the petal, making sure to stop about an inch from the edge.
  • Slide the flower over the cup so that it comes up to the rim.
  • Cut off the excess paper at the tips of the triangles, then tape the base to the cup.
  • Trace the flower-shape template onto green paper and extend each petal into a point to form a ring of “leaves.”
  • Repeat the same process with the leaves and tape beneath the petals.
  • Place a small bowl filled with jelly bean in the centre.

Sweet Centerpiece

How to Make this Prettty Centerpiece:

  • Center a small glass vase (or a juice glass) inside a larger one.
  • Fill the space in between the two vases with an assortment of brightly coloured jelly beans.
  • Pour a few inches of water into the inner vase, then set your blooms in place.
  • I made this centerpiece last year and used yellow silk tulips. After the holidays, I wrapped it in plastic and stored it on a shelf – and I have a ready to place centerpiece this year!
