Add Beautiful Spring Flowers to Your Home
Tis the season for beautiful blooms. Look to Mother Nature for a rainbow palette that’s pleasing to the eye. Red, pink, and orange tulips evoke a fiery sunset when combined together.
Spring brings a garden full of lilacs and tulips. Pair these two indoors and create a lush DIY bouquet flower arrangement put them in a vase with fresh water placed throughout different parts of the house. This brings so much life, prana energy into the home environment, it adds positive energy chi.
While you can never go wrong with a classic arrangement of roses, or a full bouquet of carnations, the most on-trend bouquets like using a lot more greenery or different colors are bringing more of relaxed, botanical style.
These days, a bouquet doesn’t have to be over-the-top to make an impact on your living space. Simple yet an impressive option is to choose flowers that are beautiful on their own and have character.
A beautiful bouquet can also be as simple as a handful of specialty blooms such as ranunculus, garden rose or protea placed in a clear vase. The easy arrangements will add a perfect finishing touch to every room.
There is also a moodier movement happening with flowers, even for the brighter days of spring. Stretch the spectrum between dark and light by adding deep, rich tones like merlot, burgundy and blackberry into a neutral colour palette, you can create depth, dimension and mental connection. The overall feel of the colour palette remains timeless and a subtle sense of full bloom and complexity to a beautifully mixed flowers bouquet.
Happy Easter Weekend and Chag Sameach. love, #krishna
Easter Party Ideas
Spring is the prime time to enjoy what Mother Nature gave us, starting with some of the freshest and most flavorful fruits and vegetables available for the season.
Easter parties are one of the Spring’s first opportunities for an outdoor party. Easter is also a great time to celebrate family traditions or make some of your own, new traditions.
If you’re in charge of hosting an Easter party this year, we have a few party tip suggestions for the perfect party plan for your friends and family!
Decorate with Bright Colors
Although Easter colors typically include pastels, such as light pink, baby blue and light yellow, your party decorations do not have to follow this color palette. Using one bright bold Spring color, like hot pink, makes an energized, non-traditional color palette. If you have kids, they will excitingly want to dye Easter eggs in the days leading up to Easter. Stick with their enthusiasm and have them prepare some dyeable ceramic, or other non-perishable, eggs before the party. You will be able to use these eggs to decorate your house before the party and they can be used for a fun Easter Egg Hunt.
Host It Potluck Style
You can always count on family to help out with food for events! Instead of trying to prepare the entire meal, accept your family’s offer to add to the abundance of delicious dishes to help out. One way to successfully host a pot luck style meal is to provide the main course and drinks. Guests can then bring salads, side items, and desserts. Some of the stress of preparing a large meal will be off you and guests will get to enjoy family member’s special dishes.
Easter Egg Hunt
These Easter-themed games turn the holiday into a good old fashioned field day! Everybody loves an Easter egg hunt, but they really only last a couple hours before the kids are in need of another form of entertainment — not to mention some physical activity to burn off all the sugar from the candy available during the hunt. This Easter Sunday consider starting a new tradition by hosting a backyard Easter party/field day filling eggs with fun prizes, like stickers, movie tickets, or even cash! These fun games will ensure everyone (including the adults) will be having a blast until the sun goes down.
Kids always love a good old-fashioned sack race. Call it a bunny hop race and give each child an old pillowcase or sack to hop in.
Print out a big picture of Peter Rabbit and hang it on the wall to play the Easter twist of the classic party game. Pin the Tail on The Rabbit.
Happy Easter weekend
