There’s so much to love about Easter – friends, family, chocolate, a proliferation of bunny themed things, and of course, a much needed long weekend!
It’s the perfect time to crack out those crafty talents and dive into some egg decorating (or lets be honest, some chocolate egg eating!)
Flowers, of course, are also a great Easter tradition – symbolic of renewal, and just an awesome way to welcome people into your home.
This week we’re bringing a little Aussie charm into your home, with a fat banksia, tetra gum foliage, mountain daisy, and easter chick yellow billy buttons. Most of these beauties are super long lasting, and dry beautifully. Whether you opt for a vase or hanging bunches around your home, these babies will be with you long after the long weekend!
Have a fab one, you flower crazy thang.
Here’s what you’ll need.
A selection of Australian native flowers (we used banksias, mountain daisy and tetragona nuts!)
A few colourful blooms (we used chrysanthemum and billy balls)
Flower shears or secateurs
A sturdy vase and fresh water
1. Start with Banksia
Trim away any leaves that will sit below the water line and pop in your banksia. Keep it tall and dramatic, and lean it to one side.
2. Frame with Tetragona
Create volume and shape to your arrangement by placing your stems of tetragona on both sides of your vase.
3. Mountain daisy
Tuck in your twiggy mountain daisy stems. As they bloom they’ll create pretty clusters of tiny white blooms.
4. Fill with chrysanthemum
Pop in a couple of stems of chrysanthemum. Some one higher and one nestled in near the rim of the vase.
5. Finish with billy balls
Finish off by tucking in your bright yellow billy balls for a tiny pop of colour. So cute!
6. Easter weekend perfection
Pop this awesome arrangement right at your door as a gorgeous (and fragrant) welcome home treat, or on your coffee table for weekend flower bliss!
