Once again, it is time for me to show you how to decorate your topiaries for the holiday ahead. I have already shown you how to create a vibrant topiary for spring using nothing but citrus and a little imagination. I have also given you some tips for turning your topiary into a stunning display for Valentine’s Day with only a handful of nandina berries and a touch of whimsy. But today is all about Easter, which just so happens to be one of my favorite holidays. I love how everything is suddenly light and airy and pastel. I also don’t mind the fact that buying large amounts of candy is not only accepted but expected as well. More than anything, I am so very thankful for the true meaning that Easter holds and I look forward to the reminder every year.

Have you ever purchased something because you just knew it was special, but then you didn’t really know what to do with it? That is the story behind these stunning, hand blown and hand painted eggs. I found them in Vienna, but had no idea what to use them for once I got them home. Today, they have found their purpose.

1. Layer your favorite eggs around the base of the topiary to create a skirt.

2. Add fresh cut blooms, using different shapes and sizes to create depth. For long lasting color, place your blooms in water picks that you can find at your local craft store. These lenten roses look incredible, don’t they?

3. If you have supplies left over, use them to adorn the base of the container as well.
