I love those Malted Milk Speckled Eggs…they are my favorite Easter candy (and those Cadbury Creme Eggs are a close second)! I buy them every year and eat way too many of them! One year, I found a Robin’s Egg Blue teacup at a flea market and thought it would make a great candy dish for my speckled eggs—I still use it for that! I love the way the pretty pastel speckled eggs look nestled inside the blue teacup. Maybe you’ll be able to use this idea for your own Easter candy!
It’s fun using teacups for other uses in addition to drinking tea. I’ve been to tea rooms with friends where they serve soup in teacups–isn’t that a great idea? If you’re a teacup collector, it’s a great way to use your teacups more often! 🙂
Hope you are enjoying all your Easter and springtime goodies! What’s your favorite Easter treat?
Dogwood trees are starting to bloom where I live and their blooms are so pretty! The Redbud trees are also blooming and their rich color looks so striking against the other trees that are just starting to produce small leaves.
I decided to pick a few blooming branches and make a bouquet–something I had wanted to do last spring, but by the time I thought about doing it, the blooms were past their prime. So here’s how my “Branch Bouquet” turned out–I just combined 2 Dogwood branches with 3 Redbud branches and I think the different blooms look so pretty together! You could use other kinds of blooming branches, too–Forsythias, Pear Blossoms…whatever type of blooming branches that are growing around you. It brings a nice touch of the spring outdoors into your home or office.
You could also use this idea to make a pretty Easter centerpiece for your table!
Do you have any pretty blooming shrubs or trees in your yard?
I picked these daffodils yesterday–they’ve just recently started blooming. They were growing by the side of the road, and I just had to pick some! I love the variety–some are bright yellow, some are soft yellow, and some are soft cream. My favorite, though, are the daffodils that have creamy petals with vivid orange centers.
Do you have daffodils in your garden and are they blooming yet?
