Fresh Fruit Arrangement

Herb and Orange filled Arrangement styled like a basket
Robbie Caponetto; Produced: Buffy Hargett Miller

For your kitchen decor, pick an arrangement that's equal parts attractive and practical. This one is planted with fragrant ingredients ready to be clipped for cooking. Fill a ceramic container (add a hole in the bottom for drainage) with potting soil. Then plant parsley, thyme, Swiss chard, and violas. Nestle a few tangerines on top for extra vibrance. Form a "handle" out of fresh rosemary. Water regularly, and keep in a sunny spot on the counter.

Start with a ceramic flowerpot (with a complementary saucer to catch any drainage) to create this centerpiece. Fill it with potting soil, and plant a collar of violas around the rim. Place blooming hyacinth bulbs in the center, and add a few stately salvias for height. We fashioned a "handle" out of thin wooden branches. Fill the saucer with decorative sheet moss, and finish the look with faux eggs and birds' nests.

Pretty Peonies

Peony and tulip door swag flower arrangement

Tie a 3-inch florist foam cage that's been soaked in water to the center of a wooden stick. Use camellia greenery (the glossy green foliage) to cover the materials and give the wreath volume. Then tuck spiky sword fern behind Queen Anne's lace (the clusters of small ivory flowers) with hellebores sprouting from the greenery. A peony with a halo of variegated leaves acts as a focal point, but single blooms can be used to fill empty spaces. Tie a piece of ribbon to either side of the stick to serve as a hanger. These hardy flower and foliage selections will last a week. Swap out tired blooms to keep the swag fresh.

Weave in Wheatgrass

Ditch the faux filler grass, and plant the real thing in an Easter basket this year. Add a plastic liner to the container, and fill with potting soil. Around ten days to two weeks before Easter, sprinkle wheatgrass seeds (available at garden centers) on top of the soil. Set in a sunny spot and water well. Nestle naturally dyed eggs in the grass. A festive bow finishes the look.
