Flower Arrangements in Eggshells


_
Checking through Martha's site for inspiration I came across this flower arrangement for Easter. Too cute.

Hollowed-out eggshells make naturally beautiful vases for tiny flower arrangements. Break an egg at the top of its shell, drain the contents, and carefully rinse out the inside. Next, fill the empty shell with room-temperature water and place it in an eggcup for stability. Finally, insert small cuttings of your favorite blossoms (we used lilacs, lily of the valley, and violas). Individually or grouped together in a centerpiece, these tiny arrangements make a wonderful addition to the place settings at your table.

Sabina, I missed that arrangement when I made my compilation yesterday. Thank you for sharing. It is cute with the wish tag.

Lilac smells so good. In a couple of months, I will be able to enjoy the scent on my backyard - if it stops snowing one day.

Those are so sweet. I reminds me of the local county fair because there's a flower arranging category for "tiny containers".
