*affiliate links used – carrot vase and Easter Ideas
I hope you’re having a good week so far! It’s going by so quickly. We’ve had a lot going on with the kids and a lot of rain. I’m so excited for sunny, warm days! I’m also excited for Sprig Break and Easter. Hopefully they will both be accompanied by sunny, warm days. :)
You might remember in the Fall when I experimented with using mini pumpkins as a vase filler. I loved the way it turned out and it was such fun seasonal decor that I decided to try something similar for Easter. Instead of pumpkins I used carrots! I present to you.. my carrot vase. :) Kind of cute, right? Or is it just weird? Ha ha. My kids thought it was a little weird but I’m a fan. :)
It took TWO minutes to put this together. Probably why I love it so much! I arranged my flowers in the center of this glass vase and then just dumped a few bags of mini carrots around the stems. The carrots slid in so easily! Then when I got to the top of the vase I just set a few individual carrots inside to fill all the way to the top of the vase. Then add your water! What’s up, Doc? Easy and done.
I set it on my island as a cute little arrangement with my tulips (of course I did). Love this for Easter decor! It would also be fun as a centerpiece for an Easter table for dinner. Another idea is using several small vases in the middle of the table with carrots and flowers. Any flowers obviously work, but adding some orange is especially fun. :) I made this last week because I wanted to see how long it lasted. It looked beautiful for about 5 days and then it was time to change the water. It does take a little work emptying the carrots and setting them aside so you can dump the water and then fill the carrots back in around the flower stems again.
Ideas like this with real items/food are better for short term decorating, but such a simple and inexpensive way to add some fun to your Easter table/decor!
Speaking of carrots. :) Here are a few other fun ideas for Easter I’ve shared in the past! I can’t wait to make this again. Just like the carrot vase it takes no time and is so cute. Below are a few other fun ways to serve food and snacks for Spring/Easter get togethers.
Easter candy is my favorite and never lasts long around here. Give me a Cadbury Egg and some Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies and I’m set for breakfast lunch and dinner. Oh don’t forget a Coke Zero! A little sad but true. :)
Remember this fun bunny platter? My kids loved this one. Definitely going to have to make it again this year!
Another fun and easy Easter idea is hanging eggs from tall faux flowers. I’ve done this for years and makes such a beautiful display!
Another easy table centerpiece idea.
This was my Easter table decor last year.
These two always make an appearance somewhere. :)
This year they are chillin’ in the family room.
With snacks close by. :)
