Easter Floral Arrangements

Easter Floral Arrangements

Eggs always seem to be featured in one way or another in Easter arrangements. The thing to do is to decide what flowers and leaves you are likely to use and then to colour the eggs to harmonise with them. Little arrangements of this nature make charming gifts, especially for people who live in towns.

You need not limit yourself to whole or fresh eggs; the shells of your breakfast boiled eggs can be used, if arranged carefully, so that the broken ends are hidden. These can also be arranged by being placed on top of drinking straws to act as stems. Eggs, bleached barley or wheat and oats will blend remarkably effectively with primroses, daisies and daffodils. Naturally enough, catkins, blossom and fresh young leaves with flowers and eggs and even toy chicks are both pretty and popular, especially with the young.

Easter arrangements give you an opportunity to use small bunches of flowers, either from the garden or little wild ones that the children bring home. Make each into a tiny posy surrounded by a collar of leaves, ivy leaves for instance. You can arrange these little posies in many ways, for example in a simple circle around the rim of a deep plate with a pile of eggs, lifted from the water by placing the plate which holds them on a small jar or napkin ring. You can arrange them in a cone by building up a series of plates and saucers, each one lifted from the other on an eggcup or something similar. Make quite sure that all stands firmly before you begin the arrangement. Arrange the posies on the plates, their stems to the centre. Lay them on crumbled OASIS. If you use a pencil or something similar to make holes for the stem ends you can follow the tree pattern or perhaps a Byzantine cone and make one of all posies.
