Spring Fling

Here's a fresh idea for sprucing up any table. Start with a sheet of wheat grass. You can use real grass, but I already had this artificial grass in a bucket.

You will need water picks like these below. You can find them at Michaels.

And flowers of your choice. Pick them out of your yard if you can. It's cheaper! :)

Then cut your flower stems to varied heights. Poke them in the flower picks. Hint: For the Gerber daisies, I left the lid open on the water pick, but was able to fit the miniature roses in without taking the lid off. Whether you leave it on or take it off will depend on the diameter of your stem.
Decorate your grass container with whatever you have. I tied yellow polka dotted ribbon around my bucket and added a green and yellow button. Then I added a nest with eggs and put everything on a vintage yellow checked tablecloth that was my mother's.

Voila! You are done in no time! Try it and Enjoy!!

Now hop over to and check out all the other spring vignettes.

That's so cute. I think I actually have a container of grass on my screened porch. I believe I could do this. Thanks for the idea.
