Easter Inspiration

The community garden near my house never fails to produce a breathtaking display of tulips in the spring. I try to walk through often during this time of year to appreciate the day to day changes that unfold, especially on these warm spring days. The garden is exuberant, informal and beautifully wild.
This year the joyous range of colors and shapes inspired the styling of my Easter baskets. I tried to use very different baskets with lots of personality, and I decorated them with brightly colored bits of ribbon of different lengths and textures.

I save all my ribbons in a box for just such an occasion. I keep anything from hand dyed french silk ribbons, to mere clippings of grosgrain -- you never know when you might be inspired!


  1. Absolutely stunning! I only wish I was as creative with my Easter baskets, oh wait, I didn't even get creative enough to make one this year! Oh well, definitely inspiration for next year.

  2. Very nice! I love the addition of the colorful ribbons! It really adds a lot!- Karina
