It’s already been almost a week since Easter so I figure it’s time for a recap. I made this basket from Martha Stewart’s instructions for a pussy willow nest and then bent some stems into a handle and added a flower arrangement
made up of lilac
lily of the valley
They all smelled so amazing together.
The basket actually took quite a while!
After starting with some older pussy willow branches that I tried soaking to soften them, I got some new ones instead and they were much easier. Just a few little touchups…
and it was finally done.
There were some little pieces for leftovers, which I always love
and a little arrangement for another room.
Then time to use these candies, stickers and confetti
for another Martha Stewart project:
Such different size strawberries!
Confession: there was a cake toppling on the way to the party, but my Mom’s Easter bread stayed intact until after the egg hunt
