Tabletop Tuesday: Spring Floral Bucket

Lately everywhere I go in stores, I've been seeing spring bouquets and decor. I wish I could start seeing some evidence of spring in real life in my yard, but we're still in winter mode here.

While I was shopping for a nice pot at a local garden and gift center to re-pot a cyclamen plant, I found a pretty bucket with French words on it in the clearance area and decided to make my own faux spring bouquet for my kitchen table.


I used some leftover spring-looking florals and twiggy elements that I had. A piece of foam hot-glued into the bucket holds them all in place. Green moss was also added as a fill-in.


It looks so pretty on my kitchen table.



 
I also 'dressed up' some really cute Easter boxes that I bought at Michael's for $1.99.

I added a little moss, a spring floral pick and some glittery Easter eggs.


The other one is purple with cute little chicks on the lid. These will looks cute on my Easter table.

Today I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday!
