Time to Plant Your Baskets!!

We opened our email this morning to this picture from Terrain.
Isn't it the most gorgeous Easter Basket?!!
*sigh*

It reminded us that we needed to plant the grass
in the kiddo's Easter baskets....


Basket
check!
Soil
check!

Wheatgrass....
Wheatgrass all over the floor

check!
{I might add that kids are not helping with this project at the moment!!}


Into the baskets
check!

We added a bow on this basket.....
but you can do what you like!

Just water & watch your Easter grass
grow!
oh.....and back to this....

Now that we're done with the kiddo's baskets ~ we're so going to make this!
We're going to plant the grass
 then add some spring bulbs that haven't bloomed yet....

{digging them up from outside!}

then....in two weeks,
 when the grass has grown,
 we'll add the nest, eggs & birds

You've got to love Spring!

UPDATE!

Thanks to Debra from
Common Ground
for inviting us over to her
Vintage Inspiration Friday!

Last night we were putting the
finishing touches
on the store for our
Spring Fling Open House
 this weekend....


We took some vintage
funeral baskets
and created fun Easter Baskets!

Soooo much fun!!

Head on over to Debra's

Spring ideas!

Well I have learned a lot...didn't know about Terrain...and have never seen anyone plant grass in the kids' baskets!
My husband is a grass seed dealer LOL...I'll plant some in something...or wheat or barley...

Oh my, what lovely baskets. I would have loved this, and so would have my daughter. I was not very creative. She got the fake grass. :)

Love it! Love it! Love it! I've gotta do this. My friend Cindy from Tol usually plants grass seed in a cool container for her Easter Table centerpiece and it's such a neat thing. Thanks for posting this so I can get my game on!

Big hugs, sherry

PS Just gotta say I played the Put The Lime In the Coconut song several times! Great fun song!

Every year I think, oh this year I am going to do a natural Easter basket with the girls and sigh Easter comes and goes. I feel too tired to even think about it this year. But enjoyed the pictures and beauty all the same. Thanks for sharing Kitchen Girls.
Cheers,
Leah
