Recently, a client commissioned us to make a special birthday arrangement for her mom – something that was different but could also transition into Easter decorations. If you know Kendra or me very well, something “different” can be interpreted in many ways – usually bordering on outlandish with a little bit of zany. Then we have to reel our ideas in and refine them until they are somewhere between accessible and unique. Sooo, here’s our interpretation of a birthday/Easter arrangement:

“Egg Cups: The Pretty Dozen”:

We mixed and matched the eggs using decoupage and spray paint, and also keeping some of the eggs clean and simple.

Our first egg is our Golden Egg with candy tuft and ranunculus:

The next one is our Lotus Egg with sweet pea and billy ball:

The client also wanted to personalize the eggs so we added her mom’s name in addition to some special words:

Another shot of this egg:

One of my favorites, the Cloisonne Vase Egg:

The Hummingbird Egg with sweet pea, scabiosa, and berzillia berries:

The Botannical Egg with candy tuft, ranunculus, and berzillia:

Another Golden Egg, filled with flowering branches:

Kendra’s favorite – The Sunny Side Up egg with yellow ranunculus with Queen Anne’s lace:

Our Golden Cloisonne Vase with scabiosa, allium and waxflower:

A Happy Egg:

We’re so glad we got to do this project and even more so that we were able to personalize it.

Now, who’s up for some omelettes? :)

    These are amazing! I would love to figure out how to do this–So sweet and just beautiful!

    Hi Synne! We’re so glad you stopped by our blog. As you can tell, it’s been awhile since we’ve updated! :) You can use a variety of materials to decoupage. Tissue paper works, patterned napkins, newspaper prints – all thin materials work best. If you make any, please let us know how they turned out! :)

    Hi Celeste! Thanks for checking out our long overdue for an update blog! :) Here are some quick instructions:
    1. Empty out the egg by cracking the top with a fork tine or sharp knife. Break away the shells carefully until you get the opening you’ll need.
    2. Empty out the egg (set aside for baking!) and rinse carefully.
    3. Cut out patterns using tissue paper, newspaper prints, napkins, etc. Figure out how you want to place the pattern on your egg.
    4. Using decoupage glue (try Mod Podge from your local craft store), paint on a thin layer over the paper.
    5. Allow to dry for a few hours.
    6. Add water to the egg shells, place your flowers within!

    Have fun crafting!

    What beautiful flower arrangements – I am so inspired to make these for Easter! Thank you for sharing – they are so lovely!!

  10. [...] One year ago, I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend & photographer, Caroline Tran.  I had the pleasure of working with 2 local florists who completely blew my mind with their creativity and diy-prowess.  One of my all-time favorite pieces – their flower arrangements really are pieces of art – is this “Pretty Dozen.” [...]
