To welcome the first day of Spring today, we have a special guest post to share that was created for us by the amazingly talented floral designer Kiana Underwood of Tulipina. Enjoy!


With Easter, the possibilities for creative expression are abundant. This particular design incorporates the staples of spring and Easter (colorful flowers and eggs) in a unique and easy way. The green ranunculus are amazing in the texture that they bring to the design, and the colorful pop of the tulips and lilies scream cheer and happiness. A few ceramic rabbits on another cake plate finish the Easter motif. I hope that you enjoy trying your own version of this DIY.

What you will need:

Begin by placing the pedestal bowl on top of the cake platter and start arranging the tulips so that they hang over the side of the bowl. The tulip leaves (attached to the stems) create a nice fill as well.

Continue by placing the lilies in the same manner next to the tulips.

Add the ranunculus and additional tulips. 

Continue by filling in with additional numbers of each variety. This arrangement works well by having a reasonable segregation between the floral varieties.

Stack the eggs carefully around the platter and voilà - you have a lovely Easter centerpiece.
