I hope all of you have a wonderful long weekend munching on some Easter chocolate. Here in Ottawa it will be another 2 weeks before tulips or other flower might begin to show, so I decided to bring the feeling of spring indoors with this easy tulip arrangement that is perfect if you need some last minute decorating ideas for this Easter. To begin you'll need one large glass vase and one smaller vase that can fit inside the first vase. For my arrangement I'll be using a glass vase with a mason jar inside.
Fill the mason jar with water and move it to the edge of the table. Hold each tulip outside the vase and position it to the height you want then cut the stem. For more information on how I measure flower see my flower arranging tips. When cutting your tulips if you are using a shorter vase like I did you should be able to cut the tulip stem in half so that one piece has flowers and a stem and the other has the larger leaves from the bottom which you can use as extra greenery. Once done adding flowers place the smaller vase back inside the larger vase.
Next to give a more Easter feel to the arrangement I carefully filled the outer jar with Easter egg candies that hide the inner vase, and give a more festive touch. If you don't have candy various things could work such as the large tulip leaves wrapped around, the plastic grass used in Easter baskets, or plastic Easter eggs.
The end result is rather cute, and perfect for a family Easter meal.
