Six on Saturday-March 17

Freezing rain is making everything sparkle, and ensures that there won’t be any traditional planting of potatoes or peas on St. Patrick’s Day here in central Indiana.  I’m just hoping it won’t coat the satellite dish and prevent enjoyment of the NCAA tourney later today.  So, stuck indoors, here’s the really EASY Easter ideas gleaned from the recent Indianapolis Flower & Patio show. Easter 1  1) This pretty daisy floral centerpiece was enhanced by adding glittered eggs on dark green bamboo “stems.”  That’s certainly easy.  2) Adding a white plate to hold additional eggs at the vase’s base is a quick, colorful idea.  One could also use a low basket filled with “grass” to hold the eggs instead.  And, I like the pastel straws that echo the Easter colors.  Easter 2  3) Inverting a wine glass over a green “nest” filled with jelly bean “eggs” is also a very quick and easy idea.  And converting it into a candle holder is a bonus plan. Easter 4  4) Covering an old pot or berry box with moss for small floral arrangements adds a natural, spring feel.  If the grass isn’t green outdoors, at least it can be green indoors!  5) Filling baby terra cotta pots with jelly beans is a cute idea, too. Easter table compressed And finally, using a wooden picnic table and bench for additional seating, even indoors, turns Easter dinner into a fun picnic.  Wouldn’t it be lovely if it were warm enough to have an Easter picnic outdoors?  It’s certainly looking doubtful for our area, as more cold, cold temperatures and snow is in our forecast.  Thinking about Easter does make Spring seem closer!  If it’s not icy on your roads and you’re in the area, the Indianapolis Flower & Patio show is still open today and tomorrow!

That’s my “Six on Saturday” for St. Patrick’s Day.  Thanks to The Propagator for suggesting and hosting this meme.

    Thank you for all of the decorating ideas! The productivity that a good flower show can inspire! But, I’m with you (literally) in the weather department. Cold in Cleveland. Will it ever be spring?

    Oh yes…Love the moss covered basket.I have a bucket full of “first” little eggs that I use for the table decor. Our weather is wet but promising a Spring…again. All of the yellow flowers are gone .

    Really liked the wine glass idea. Could be used for other holidays besides Easter, as well.

    We won’t be decorating for Easter since we will be traveling home from Oregon that day, but it is fun to look at all of the ideas. – Margy

    Lovely ideas, and you’re right, thinking about Easter does reassure me that it really is spring!

    That wine glass idea is brilliant. Now I have a use for the collection of odd glasses I’ve kept over the years as sets of glasses have somehow reduced in numbers …..

      When winter continues its grip, it’s difficult to find “Six” of anything garden-related! Plus, it’s always good to get a head start on Easter. I’m hoping I’ll be too busy gardening to come up with alternative ideas for the bunny lovers by the time Easter arrives!
