I'm hoping by this time next week I'll be introducing you to my new blog. So exciting. Until then, I'd thought I'd get you inspired with some tabletop ideas for Easter that I did for Chatelaine. There's nothing more beautiful than a basket (or bowl) of eggs. I mixed together natural duck and quail eggs with organically dyed eggs (instructions below) and a few thread wrapped eggs.
Make your own centrepiece by stacking different vases filled with one flower on top of a cake stand. Vary the heights to keep it interesting.
Make your own dyes using ingredients you find in your fridge and pantry. Onion skins, loose tea, blueberries, beets, and even parsley create beautiful, coloured eggs. For instructions, click here.
Instead of traditional easter baskets, try these Mason Jar takeaways. Simply glue a plastic animal to a mason jar lid and spray paint the whole thing. Fill the jars with nesting material and top with candy eggs.
Finally, our Northern Climate means flowers aren't always in bloom by Easter. Chances are you have lots of bare branches though! Cut some down, place them in a jar and hang floral foam eggs pinned with chrysanthemums. Easy Peasy!Photos: Sian Richards for Chatelaine Magazine Prop Styling: Julia Black, Rayna Schwartz
