I came up with this arrangement during one of the "photo shoots", and just love it! I have to find space for it somewhere, now!
Of the items pictured, only 1 was bought at Goodwill- the little sundae dish that the candle is in. The rest is all Dollar Tree.
Plate- the most gorgeous shade of Robin's Egg blue, $1
Plate Stand- $1
Blue Bird- $1
Candle- $1 (very complimentary color to the plate, but I don't like the smell so much)
River Rocks (hidden in with the candle) $1
Tall vase/candle/thingy- $2 ($1 for the candle stick, $1 for the candle holder turned vase thingy)
Ok, I lied- the eggs were from Hobby Lobby, and were cheaper than $1.
But, this arrangement can be easily made with items on hand. I had picked up the plate to make a cake stand. I can see now, though, that I'll be needing another plate for that. The sundae dish I've had kicking around for a while, waiting for a purpose.
The bird I bought, cause, well, it's cute. And already distressed. And it fits that whole Pottery Barn feel of my Easter decor this year. The candle was bought at the same time as both the plate and the birdie. The plate stand I've had for a while, though I never used it for the reason I bought it. It works great for displays, though.
The daffodils were bought to make a wreath, and a few got put in with the vase. The eggs were bought for the vases, as was the moss.
I do feel I must find a place for this whole arrangement for Easter, though. Somewhere that neither cat nor kid will knock it all over and break it. Like Mars. Or possibly Jupiter. Cause, ain't no place in my house where said cats and said kids won't knock it over.
Another arrangement from earlier. I loved it- till I made the one above. I prefer the one above.
