An Easter Tablescape

To get started on your centerpiece, check your garden for blooms.

Easter is my second favorite holiday with Christmas being the first for obvious reasons.

Easter, however, is special because it means Spring is in full swing, and the world is blooming once again with a breathtaking array of colors. Everyone's gardens are overflowing with azaleas and dogwoods, and the candy aisles at the grocery stores are bursting with bright-colored candy wrappers. What’s not to love?

Traditionally, we have a big meal on Easter Sunday, and I can’t think of a better way to take advantage of the season’s remarkable color scheme than by creating a centerpiece fit for the occasion.

A few years ago, I was given several antique chicken feeders, and I love to use them as a fun container for Easter.

I can’t resist using the immaculate Mountain Snow Pieris, which resembles Lily of the Valley blooms minus the high price-tag. Putting together this centerpiece is super simple and will definitely inspire you to plant Mountain Snow Pieris for next year’s Easter celebration.

How to create an Easter tablescape:

Step 1: Place Hydrangeas in the center of the chicken feeder

Step 2: Anchor each end of the chicken feeder with Creeping Fig

Step 3: Next, place the Lemon Thyme on each side of the Hydrangea

Step 4: Soak the oasis in water until saturated and then place the oasis inside the chicken feeder on both sides.

Tip: Make sure that your container does not have any drainage. If so, be sure to line it with a heavy trash bag before placing plants in order to prevent water from leaking on the table.

Step 5: Snip clippings of Mountain Snow™ Pieris and stick the clippings into the oasis

Step 6: Fill in the extra space with clippings of Jubilation™ Gardenia

Step 7: Last, add daffodils for that extra pop of color and Spring time flair

Thanks to your garden and a unique container of your choice, your centerpiece will definitely be the life of the party!
