March 23, 2018

Easter Sunday is all about gathering the family together and spending quality time with your loved ones, little ones, and friends. Your community comes together for a full day of food, conversation, and entertainment for the kids. And if you’re hosting, no doubt things are a little hectic getting ready to celebrate. We’re here to help with a few great tips to help you customize your Easter hosting experience. Get to put smiles on everyone’s faces, they’ll be begging to have you host again next year!

Your Bouqs centerpiece already looks great on its own, but you can add an extra touch of spring by placing branches throughout your Bouq. This is a also great way to get the kiddos involved (and a way to keep them busy!), have them forage for branches in your yard and have them help put the finishing touches on your Bouq.

Really ‘Wow’ With These DIY Tulip Terrariums

The table is set, the meal is prepared, add a finishing touch to each place setting with this adorable tip for Tulip Terrariums to each place setting.  Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

  • Clear plastic eggs
  • Moss
  • Tulips
  • Ribbon

Step 1: Start off by laying a bed of moss in the bottom of one plastic egg.

Step 2: Place a tulip bud on the moss, and snap on the top half of the plastic egg to close.

Step 3: Decorate each tulip terrarium with a ribbon bow, and place a finished egg at each place setting. That was easy!

Best of all, your guests can take their Tulip Terrariums home with them as a happy takeaway from the day.

Make Seats Stand Out With Spring Wreaths

Your table already gets all the attention, make your chairs just as special with these easy to make wreaths. You’ll need:

  • Copper rings
  • Floral wire
  • Myrtle
  • Ribbon
  • Shears

Step 1: Take one end of the myrtle and wrap it around the middle of the copper ring once. Use a a short piece of floral wire and wrap it around the myrtle to secure it.

Step 2: Continue weaving the myrtle around the copper ring until the ring is covered, trimming off excess greenery if needed. Take another short piece of floral wire and wrap it around the second end of myrtle to secure it. Repeat on remaining rings.

Step 3: Hang each copper ring off the back of each chair with a piece of ribbon. Now your chairs will look just as pretty as your table!

A Farm-Fresh Way to Decorate Easter Eggs

Easter egg coloring is a tradition! Put a fun twist on the activity this year by using farm-fresh petals from your Bouq to decorate eggs with the kiddos.These pretty eggs will certainly stand out in their Easter baskets filled with goodies or be a fun discovery during their Easter egg hunt! Here’s what you need to make them:

Step 1: Begin by placing a small amount of Mod Podge on an egg. Place a petal on top of the glue.

Step 2: Add a little more Mod Podge to your brush and paint over the petal to adhere it to the egg, beginning in the center and painting outward. Make sure the edges of the petals are sealed flat to keep it from peeling up. When done, place the finished egg on a clean surface to dry overnight.

Step 3: Hide the eggs around the house for the kids to find, perhaps put a few in the flower garden outside.
