Friday Flowers

Easter Flowers beg for something special...

A pretty assortment of garden picked flowers in a collection of egg-cups... simple and innovative... ah I love it!

For a slightly more streamlined look, use flowers of the same type or color and set them upon a tiered cake stand.

To take the egg-cup concept a step further, use hollowed out egg shells as a bud vases. These shells appear to have been dyed a light lavender color to compliment the flowers.
Guaranteed to bring oohs and aahs!

Have a wonderful, blessed and egg-filled weekend!

I love pale lavender and green. These small floral arrangements are perfection.
Have a wonderful weekend, Alice, and a fantastic Easter.

All of these are so cute and a very good use of egg cups. The spring colors are just so uplifting. They're perfect. Happy Easter.

Oh my goodness, I wish I would have seen this idea before Easter (that's what I get for getting busy and neglecting to read my favorite blogs). I love this idea and it just so happens I have a collection of antique egg cups rarely used! Great idea!
