Make a Tiered Flower Display Easily

I love to entertain, so it should come as no surprise that I have a file brimming with centerpiece and table setting ideas. This is a simple one that I like, and it's perfect for your upcoming Spring flings ... brunches, tea parties, even dinner parties.

Enliven your next buffet with an arrangement of eggcup bouquets displayed on cake stands. Choose small-budded flowers in similar hues, such as the tulips, lily of the valley, paperwhites, and daffodils we used. Trim the stems so the blossoms will peek over the rims of the eggcups. Place a small round metal floral frog in each eggcup to help shape and weight the arrangements. Fill the cups three-quarters of the way with water, and then add the blooms. Arrange the mini bouquets on and around stands. Water daily for a long-lasting centerpiece.
