Looking for some non traditional centerpiece ideas? Collect an egg carton, dyed eggs and shells and get creative! These shells with soil and seeds can be planted right into the garden in spring.
There are so many classic spring options out there as well. Tulips in a variety of colours, lilies, Gerberas and funky fillers are aways a good choice.
One last bit of fun. Place your carrot stems skinny side down in your vase. Use a plastic dish with foam to create your arrangement and fasten on top with some glue dots. This one is perfect for some silly stories with the kids about Peter Rabbit searching for his missing carrots😄
There are so many interesting new ways to display plants! This frame has a lined shelf so you could plant right into it. You could leave them in their pots too and add accessories such as pine cones, moss and bark.
I went to http://www.shelmerdine.com and picked up these cute air plants! They use their root systems to attach themsleves to trees or rocks and absorb moisture and nutrients through their leaves. They need to have bright light but not direct sun. Once a week, place your plants in a bowl of water to hydrate. Can be done longer or more often depending on how dry the environment is.
Succulents come in all shapes and sizes and look super cute in this mason jar. They love bright light. Allow soil to dry thoroughly between waterings.
Plants are a great gift that keep on giving. They are also an excellent way to treat yourself and enjoy their many health benefits. They have the physical benefits of absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, and the mental benefits of bringing nature indoors especially during the winter months.
