A pretty spring table or host/hostess gifts for the holidays need not be expensive or become a ‘dog and pony show’ (one of my favorite sayings) to create. A quick trip to my local market and craft store gave me plenty of materials to choose from.

I’m sharing all these quick and easy…and not to mention oh-so-pretty things we can whip up in no time! Please watch our video and see!

Happy Easter & Happy Passover dear friends!

Love, Nora xo

    I really enjoyed this post. Thanks so much for the Easter inspiration. Would you mind sharing the source for the pretty ribbons used in the video?

      Hi Linda! I purchase my check ribbons at May Arts Ribbon. Ribbon Bazaar is very good too. Love, Nora

    I so enjoy these videos Nora. Simple yet lovely ideas. There is nothing quite like the addition of flowers to make a room smile. Happy Easter.

    can you tell me if you cut down the green on the plant before planting? or do you just cut the dead flowers off and plant as is? also, it is still cold here in chicago so i won’t be doing any planting for a couple more weeks. cleaned out Trader Joes Hyacinths (at least what they had out). my house smells amazing. but now as the flowers are cut off do i just continue watering until time to plant them? first time i’ve ever saved these little beauties for planting. if i had planted every easter plant i received i would have a field of dreams. thanks for any advise you can offer me.

      Hi Stacia! Yes, mine are going crazy too! After the flower fades, I cut it off. Let the soil dry out some before watering. Plant whenever you can! These are very hardy plants. I’ve been doing this for years, and it really does pay off! What an easy way to grow an early spring garden!! Enjoy! Love, Nora
