Easter flowers


Get ready for Easter with a flower arrangement the kids will love. We used a tall container for this Easter nest, but you can use anything you have in the house.

You will need

A small block floral foam

A selection of flowers, we used light pink roses

Straw or long grass

Chocolate white eggs

A container


What to do

  • Soak the floral foam in a basin of water for a minute. Once all the water has been absorbed place in the centre of the container. Twist stands of grass around the container hiding the floral foam. Place the roses in the foam around the edge leaving a space in the middle for the chocolate eggs. Make sure you have enough of a straw/grass base for the eggs to sit on without touching the wet floral foam.
  • Place on your Easter table and enjoy the complements.
