Welcoming Spring and Easter with open arms – it’s just such an amazing time of year with all the gorgeous pastel colors, green leaves that pop out and….chocolate! 😀 Any time of year involving chocolate is my favorite 😀
It just so happens that this year, Easter and my Hubby’s birthday collide and it really pleases me, because then I won’t have to think twice about table decor for the Birthday table 🙂
I really love having flowers on the table, but I don’t think it will be possible to have fresh flowers this year due to Winter’s persistent grip so I decided to make some flowers myself. And a little vase to put them in.
The vase is the adorable Sweet Bunny Treat Bag from My Scrap Chick. It’s made from White, Black and Cotton Candy AC Cardstock. I added small accents with a White Sharpie and inked all the edges + the cheeks with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads in Pastel Brown and Atlantic Coral.
Then I made the cute flowers from the Daisy Garden also from My Scrap Chick. For these I used AC Cardstock in Rose Bud, Chestnut, Melon, White, Sky, and Oregano.
I inked all edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads in matching colors and dotted the flower centers with a black pen.
Since these flowers are designed to be used of a flat surface, I had to figure out how to put a stem on them. I remembered a trick a learned once by rolling up a rectangle, cut three slits into it and bend them out to glue on them bottom of the flower.
Then I fixed the flower to the skewer with floral tape and added some of the leaves onto the stem as well – voila!
Finally I put some Styrofoam in the bottom of the vase/box and placed the flowers inside.
Thanks for joining me today – Can’t wait to set the table this year for Hubby’s Birthday – even though we’re a small crowd now.
Now let’s see……what else do I need to make for Easter……? 😉
