Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday. Well, I am officially back from spring break. We just returned from a wonderful family vacation to London and Paris.
I have spent the past several days recovering from some serious jet-lag (what day is it anyway?) and going through the 2000+ pictures that I took. Yes, you read that correctly - 2000+ pictures!
I have sooooo much to share with you over the next few weeks - beautiful bakeries, cupcakes, old-fashioned candy stores, cooking shops, Shabby Chic London, haberdashery and trimming shops, a visit to the Paris flea markets, and so much more!
So, please bear with me while I sort through all my photos and try to get it all organized!
In the meantime, I though I would share these gorgeous lilacs that I bought at the farmers market this weekend. Aren't they pretty...
Here's a super quick, easy, and inexpensive centerpiece for your Easter table...
All you need are some glass votive holders, some colorful candy, and some fresh flowers. I found my votive holders at A.C. Moore (I chose them because of their "egg-like" shape...and because they were on sale for 3 for $1!). I just filled them with some pretty pastel candies. I am loving the sherbet shades of these speckled jelly beans!).
Then I trimmed my flower stems and placed a few blossoms in each votive holder.
If you do this right before your guests arrive, you won't even need to mess around with water. But, if you need them to last for a longer period of time, your stems can be placed in small water vials (found at any florist shop) and then placed in the candy.
I love these clustered in groups going down the center of a dining table, but they also look so sweet placed individually at each place setting. These are so easy - you have to try them!
