It’s nearly time for hydrangeas and Easter bunnies to clutter my foyer, but first, one more change to my large indoor planter.
I took out the spent bulbs from the arrangement in my recent post, as well as the faux snowy evergreen boughs. In spite of the lingering winter situation in my garden, I am making this next arrangement more spring-like by replacing them with a division of an over-wintered tender fern that I grew through the winter months.
Fresh blue hyacinths accent the blue foyer colour, and yellow tulips invoke Spring and are the ideal colour complement.
Unfortunately, I have been unable to get out and pick up some interesting pussy-willows, which would dramatically improve this arrangement, so I am still working around the red-twig dogwood from last fall. If you are doing this for your own home, pussy-willows will be lovely and should take you through Easter.
Be sure to add either Spanish Moss or some other bagged moss to cover up the soil for a really finished look. These are available in garden centres and craft stores.
Tip: Prolong the beauty of indoor arrangements by turning down the thermostat in the area where they will sit, if possible.
How do you decorate for Spring and Easter? Do you have tips to share?
