Make a country Easter basket

USE CARNATIONS, alstroemerias, lemons; for a rustic, country look, add green berries and vines

To many of us, Easter connotes a country theme involving bunnies, chickens, eggs and blooms bursting with color. You don’t have to dig deep into your pocket to bring the season to your table. Here’s a little creative “push” in the right direction.

What you’ll need:

Any open basket, or bag, preferably with a weave or interesting texture that can stand on its own


A variety of colorful blooms like alstroemerias, carnations and green berries

Colored fruits like lemons

Leaves (optional)

Floral foam

Barbecue sticks

THE EASTER basket can be an open bag, preferably with a weave or interesting texture.

Here’s how:

Fit in your floral foam into your basket/bag. Soak in water well.

Measure the height of your basket/bag. Cut the stems of your flowers to the same length.


Insert the barbecue sticks into the bottom of the lemons. Cut the barbecue sticks the same length of the flowers stems.

Group the flowers together compactly for more visual impact.

Make sure you have enough to fill up your container.

Fill small gaps with leaves.
