I seriously hesitate to share this simple, weekend project, but I will anyway, just in case you want to add a touch of color to your Easter table.
Our dear neice and her husband have invited their extended family for an Easter meal and celebration. Considering they are young parents of four adorable children, this is a most generous and gracious invitation. When I offered to help in any way, I found out that I could help by providing bits of color and festivity to her four tables, with white tablecloths.
Since I was they are expecting 16 adults and 17 children, I went with a younger theme in choosing the arrangements. Don't you think she and her husband are brave to tackle this meal?
I visited the local dollar store and purchased yellow paper plates, yellow napkins and some faux forsythia and white flowers(not sure their name).
I purchased one pack of jelly beans also.
What really inspired my simple arrangements though, were the packs of adorable duck lollipops that I found. They had three ducks and three lambs lollipops in each dollar pack.
I added some epsom salts to the bottom of the jar, then sprinkled jelly beans on top, and a tea light candle.
I tied a sheer ribbon around the top of the jar. I took the duck lollipop and a small bouquet of the faux flowers and tied them tightly with the ribbon at the top of the jar, and then tied a small bow.
Finally, I added a touch of hot glue to the back of the arrangement and the jar.
So you see, anyone can do it, and I am sure you all would come up with some creativity of your own, with the jars.
I took the rest of the forsythia flowers off the stem, and will give them to her to sprinkle down the center of the table, between the jars. Recycling and dollar stores are a fun combination. Ironically though...
...this is now the sight out of my back door, early on this Monday morning.
So, whether you are experiencing spring or winter, thanks for stopping by.
