Simple Easter Arrangement

Happy Easter! To me nothing represents the renewal of Spring like pussy willows so I decided to use them to make an Easter arrangement for my table.

Making this was super easy. To start I just put a bunch of pussy willows that I picked up at our Farmer's Market for a few dollars in a rectangle glass vase. To spruce up the plain vase a bit I took a strip of 6" painting masking paper, folded it in half and wrapped it around the vase, securing it with some double sided tape. I wanted to add a little spring color so I tied a bow around the paper with some spring green satin ribbon.

I needed a little something else so I made nests out of a trio of little wooden bowls that I picked up in a market in Brazil a few years back. I crumpled up some more masking paper and tucked a little bit in each bowl. I then cradled a single egg in each one and arranged the little nests next to the pussy willows.

I like that it turned out simple, yet with strong Spring feel. Now I need to get myself geared up to attack some Spring cleaning later this week. It's much more fun to decorate, though...

Did you do any decorating for Easter or for spring? Have you accomplished any Spring cleaning (unlike me)?

Happy Easter. I like your spring display. I remember as a children petting the pussy willows we grew as a hedge. I do not have in my garden so I may head out to market to purchase. A quick note from your post from a few days ago. We went for a long walk in a conservation park close to us, I snapped away thinking if when I get home I do not like the look of them I can delete. From another blog, I was inspired to look down and look up - so the two inspirations got me some amazing shots with few deletes. I was also able to pause to see nesting osprey (early arrivals) lots of nesting Canada Geese in very out of the way spots on cliffs and overhangs, plus I found a loonie ($1.00) :-)
