Out of the Box Decorating Ideas for Spring
Looking for a few new decorating ideas for Spring? Incorporating California grown asparagus into your spring tablescapes and home decor provides a touch of whimsy while still looking ultra classy.
Out of the box decorating ideas for Spring don’t have to be inspired by a trip to the craft store….
Have you been to the grocery store lately?
The fresh asparagus is overflowing in the produce section and the bundled prolific spears always seem to call out my name. We normally sprinkle them with salt and pepper and toss with a little olive oil and grill them on the barbeque. Seriously, the easiest and best way to enjoy them on a weeknight!
But, instead of using them in a recipe this time, I thought I’d show you a simple, creative way to incorporate asparagus into your decor. Whether you are having a casual weekend diner with friends, or are looking for a fun arrangement for your Easter Sunday get-together with family, this easy tutorial will leave everyone impressed.
I loaded mine up with some fresh heather and a few ranunculus stems. Daffodils, roses and even lilac would be gorgeous!
The spears will stay freshest if kept in the refrigerator until ready to use. My asparagus vase lasted 48 hours sitting on my kitchen counter before I started seeing any significant wilting.
Let’s make a vase inspired by fresh asparagus!
First, gather your materials.
- Fresh Asparagus
- Cylindrical vase
- Rubber bands
Let’s get started: Measure a spear for where you want it to be positioned on the vase. I kept the tips only about an inch above the rim so they wouldn’t interfere with the flowers. Place two rubber bands around the vase then add the pre-measured spear.
Second: Cut all of the spears the same length.
Third: Add the other asparagus spears one by one until the outer vase is filled. Make sure the rubber bands are straight and not twisted.
Now tie it all together: Cut a good amount of twine and overlap, being sure to keep the twine close to the rubber band.
Seal it with a knot: Overlap several times and tie a knot to secure.
Do it again: Repeat with the other rubber band to cover completely. Cut off the ends of the twine.
