Make a Spring Easter Egg Bouquet
This Easter adorn your table with everything the season has to offer—bright blooms and farm fresh eggs! This simple tutorial for making an eye-catching Easter centerpiece is quick and easy, and even kid friendly. We’ve included two variations for this project so you can enjoy freshly cut flowers from our floral department, potted succulents from our garden department or a combination of the two (pictured here). So grab the following items and let’s get started!
You will need:
- 6 empty egg shells, holes on top
- A half-dozen carton (or just cut a dozen carton in half)
- Potting soil
- Variety of succulents (find them in our garden department)
- Bouquet of fresh flowers (find them in our floral department)
Place six empty eggshells in carton. The best way to get even openings on the top of the eggs is by using a butter knife to tap the top of the egg when you crack it. Allow the yolks and whites to run out into a bowl (save yolks and whites for scrambled eggs or quiche!).
For the potted succulent eggs
Fill eggs about two-thirds of the way with potting soil. Place small sections of succulent in the eggshells. Using a pencil, gently guide roots down into the soil and cover with additional soil.
For the fresh cut flower eggs
Fill each about two-thirds full with water. Deconstruct a flower bouquet and cut flowers to fit in the eggs (about 2-3 inches of stem). Arrange mini bouquets as desired. Enjoy!
