Carrots in a flower arrangement?
Why not…it’s E-A-S-T-E-R!!
And 100% Easter Bunny approved. (I swear)
Easter Table Carrot Flower Centerpieces with bright orange carrots and mixed Spring flowers are fun and easy to put together.
This says Easter and Spring to me…
Daffodils were my Mom’s favorite flower, we had them in our Spring garden each year. This one is for you Mom…
I sure do love to arrange flowers. Have we talked about this ever? Most any event qualifies as a “flower arranging situation” in my home. Could be a football game, a holiday, birthday party, or well just because the flowers are pretty in the store. I guess this all started as a young gal. My Mom was known for her gorgeous flower arrangements from our garden, and even my Dad could put a few posies in a vase from time to time. So maybe I just grew up this way?
In college I worked at the on campus florist (wait..that would make me a professional right?). Besides the paycheck, I knew the on campus social scene quite well. Who was dating who, upcoming proposals, and all the flowers that were going out to say, “I like you, a lot”. A pretty fun job for college, and I learned a thing or two about arrangements.
Today I made a big mess in the kitchen. By the end of my arranging party, I came up with 3 Easter arrangements for you, all a bit different. Make these or design your own, and here is the deal. There are no flower police or rules, just create something that you love with the flowers that make it feel like Spring and Easter to you!
What You Need:
Spring color flowers: yellow daffodils, white calla lily’s, mini purple tulips, white tulips, pink roses, and greenery. Pick greenery and flowers from your own garden too!
1 block wet (soak in water) floral oasis from craft store
1 bunch carrots with tops (add to arrangement the day of party)
garden clippers and scissors
vegetable oil – a few drops on carrots to keep them pretty
containers: bright color pails, pretty glass vases easily found at craft store
use your kitchen sink or bucket with water to hold flowers while arranging and to soak the wet oasis
Step 1: Keep your flowers in water while you work, and a trash can nearby for clippings.
Step 2: Soak oasis in water and insert into pails, this keeps flowers and carrots arranged. Oasis can be cut with any knife, fit it tight inside your container.
Step 3: Cover the green oasis with small clips of greenery, flowers will fill in most of the areas.
Step 4: Arrange your flowers, work in odd numbers 3-5 of each kind if doing small arrangements and work to keep a balanced natural look.
Try to keep the flowers about the same length, pointing in different angles (up, out, down). Some can hang over the edge a bit. Add a focal flower near the center of the arrangement for interest. As you create your arrangement, try different looks by cutting stems shorter and moving them in the arrangement. You will know when it looks right! Just have fun.
Easter Flower Arrangement Ideas:
Using a hot pink pail, tie the carrot stems with ribbon to add some fun! Drops of oil on your carrot stems will keep them pretty.
In this daffodil arrangement, an inexpensive modern vase from a craft store was perfect for this bouquet.
This arrangement takes just a minute and looks amazing! Simply trim the stems off evenly, tie in a bow and place in water.
A bit more modern and elegant, use a tall vase and arrange calla lilies, white tulips, and carrots.
Same flower arrangement, just photographed against a black background for a dramatic photograph. Kinda instagrammy don’t ya think?
A fun and playful little bright flower pails are perfect for flowers.
Just loop the carrot stems in a circle and tuck them down in the arrangement.
Flower arranging is a wonderful way to get creative and make something to get people talking at your Easter Party. Send these Easter Table Carrot Flower Centerpieces home with guests as a thank you or give extras to the neighbors.
Happy Easter to you and your family. Let us remember the reason for the season of Easter!
