The beauty of the Easter season, spring blooms, and a polychromatic harmony, sweetened up with just a touch of candy. Let's take a look at the mechanics.
To begin, you'll need two vessels. I started with a footed trifle bowl, and then I have a flower vase tucked inside. I haven't added water yet. Thinking about my Fibonacci, so those of you that are advanced students, you understand, adding about one inch of jelly beans to begin. Now, some dropped inside the center vase, so I have to pull those out and spread it out. Checking the height. Maybe just a little bit more. Once you have your base, go back with Peeps, yes, the perfect Easter candy. Nestle those in, creating a ring all the way around, again, making sure none of the candy goes into the central vase, keeping it all on the outside. Then add water and you're ready for flowers.
As you add water, make sure you don't splash the candy. Keep it all in the center and don't fill so full that it'll splash over the side. You want just enough to keep the flowers fabulous. Then taking a hand-tied bouquet, which I've already made this, if you'd like a tutorial on hand-tied bouquets, check us out at Flower School .com, we have several, then just set that in, nestling it down deep, and you've got a perfect, sweet Easter bouquet.
The recipe? I went polychromatic, so I could use all the colors in the rainbow, two packages of Peeps, one package of jelly beans. Then I used three ranunculus, five nerines, three freesia, three hyacinth, three hydrangea, six dubium, and several stems of pussy willow. But you could pick any blooms you love. Just plan for 15 to 20 in total.
