A DIY floral arrangement inspired by Easter egg radishes, an heirloom variety that comes in shades of pink, red, purple, and white and resembles the colored eggs of the season.
Above: Two small arrangements are ideal for an Easter table setting; recreate the look by following our DIY tutorial.
Above: Start with multicolored Easter egg radishes from your local greengrocer.
Above: You’ll need:
- Two bunches of Easter egg radishes
- A bunch of fresh sage
- A bunch of white sweet pea flowers
- A bunch of hearty white ranunculus
- A small round vase or two
- Gardening scissors (shown above, Ikebana Scissors).
Above: Create a foundation using a few stems of ranunculus and sage foliage.
Above: Layer in your sweet pea stems, cutting most of them low enough to fill out the vase, with a few left longer and wilder. Add the ranunuclus, which act as face flowers, in groupings and at varying levels to show off the face of the flowers.
Above: Be sure your radishes are well cleaned and pull of any foliage that has yellowed or has a nibbled-on look.
Above: Add the radishes by tucking the greens into the vase or lightly placing them in between the sweet pea and ranunculus.
Above: A larger finished arrangement (shown from above) works well if you have a round table.
