This Easter you'll be putting a floral feast on the table in no time! How about creating miniature floral wreaths to encircle your Easter breakfast boiled eggs, or an egg carton repurposed and filled with flowers and candles? Most important, however, is stocking your home with flowers to welcome in the new season. This cheerful bouquet will look fab on your Easter table, and will induce smiles from young and old alike. 

you will need

  • Tulips
  • Columbine
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Scabiosa
  • Lady's mantle (Alchemilla mollis)
  • One narrow, tall vase (to hold the flowers and water)
  • A wider, tall transparent vase (to place the Easter eggs and the narrower vase in)
  • Easter eggs. We used the pastel-coloured M&Ms Easter eggs; Mini Eggs would also work well

how to make an easter bouquet

Make it easy on yourself and ask your local florist to arrange a bouquet using the flowers above. Rather get to work making yourself for a personal touch? Of course you can! Check out our tips for arranging a bouquet here.

Got your bouquet? Here's how you use your beautiful bunch of flowers to create a thoughtful Easter centrepiece:

  1. Place the narrow vase gently inside the wide vase.
  2. Fill the wide vase with the chocolate Easter eggs. Note: it's advisable to use a decent number of eggs as it can be tricky to keep your hands off them!
  3. Once your wider vase is filled with eggs, carefully fill the narrow vase with water.
  4. Check out our care tips below before putting the flowers in the vase, in order to enjoy your bouquet for as long as possible.
  5. Place the bouquet in the Easter vase. Enjoy!

How to CARE FOR YOUR BOUQUET of flowers

It's a no brainer that you'll want your Easter bouquet to last for as long as possible. Here's how to care for your floral bouquet to keep it at its best:

  • Remove the bottom leaves from the stems so that no leaves hang into the water.
  • Place the flowers in a clean vase with tap water at room temperature.
  • Add cut flower food for a longer shelf life of your flowers.
  • Change the vase water regularly (every few days).
  • Place the bouquet in the right spot: not in a draft, not in direct sunlight and not next to a fruit bowl.
  • Remove dead flowers and leaves that have fallen into the water from the vase.
