Easter is my favourite holiday because it is bright, colourful, sometimes sunny and it includes chocolate, lots of chocolate. It has always been a time for easy get-togethers, a BBQ, a picnic or a pub lunch in the sun. For us it definitely includes long dog walks, ending up with sampling a local cider along the way. This weekend I’m having friends around for a “braai” (Afrikaans for BBQ) and to pretty up the house, I made this cute flower display.
During this time of year my numerous cake stands comes to use, very frequently. This gorgeous white Sophie Conran cake stand, doubles up as a platform for my flowers and Easter eggs. I have used egg cups, also form Sophie Conran, as mini vases to hold my little blooms. Add a few foil wrapped eggs for an Easter feel. I will use this Easter display as a table centre, but I think it will look just as pretty as a ‘welcome’ in the hall.
The flowers I have used are; purple-blue muscari, vibrant lime viburnum, violet anemones and sky blue forget-me-nots. The cute egg cups with the stripes and birdie motive is from What A Lovely Shop. A colourful feast for the eyes, Happy Easter, everyone!
