The idea of this unusual flower arranging could be considered only for Easter. But in other days of spring this original arrangement of flowers will be no less appropriate. However, why only in the spring? In the kitchen each family will have eggs, and in life there is always a place to the creativity.
The ease of implementation and unpredictable type of bouquet is what you will receive in just 5-10 minutes. Isn’t that a tempting prospect when the guests are at the door, and you have no extra time?! Check out this gallery, we collected it the best examples of decoration of flowers in an eggshell.
The most curious thing that these compositions can be created with the participation of indoor plants or herbs!
So, how to do it.
Step 1 (for different purposes).
To prepare the eggs for the role vases in three ways:
- for boutonniere, one flower is enough to pierce the egg in the top of the pointed part, a bit to expand the hole to release the contents, and then rinse the shell;
- if you (before you place the flower) are going to fill the shells with soil (for example, for indoor or garden plants) or any decorative filler is best suited shell is divided into 2 parts (one of them it is advisable to do a little more to it and use it);
- going decorate the guest’s plate flower, threaded through the shell (photos at the end of this gallery), – make a through hole in the ends of the eggs of such diameter that held the stem of a flower.
If you love crafts, egg shells might be decorated (for example, as in the photo under the header). And if you find exotic eggs especially large sizes – they’ll make great floral arrangements – not worse than in this vase.
Step 2 (optional).
- pour into a shell of water and place in it the flower;
- fill the shells with soil, firm it in flower, and the top pattern the filler is made of twigs, leaves, sisal, etc;
- thread the flower through egg shells, optionally, add a ribbon and place them on a napkin.
Step 3 (optional).
- put a miniature bouquet on the plate of each guest or near the instrument for stability, you can place the decor in the rest for eggs;
- make an arrangement in the center of the table, for example, on a tray, decorated with grass or a “nest” made of twigs or paper shavings.
Consider the options of the decor and create – to the delight yourself and loved ones!
