Ranunculus are the New Tulips: Six Days of Spring Linky Party

 
 
 



What a perfect time to be joining in the Six Days of Spring Linky Party as all of us here in the Midwest are in the midst of a huge winter snowstorm. I could really use a breath of fresh spring air right about now! In my world, Easter brings with it tulips and daffodils. Usually tulips. Don't get me wrong, tulips have always been my Easter favorite. But this year I've noticed a trend of moving away
from tulips and towards.....{drum roll please}......ranunculus. Ranunculus? Yes, it's genius and I don't why I hadn't thought of it sooner myself. Magazines are touting them as the new tulips, and I personally can't wait to get me some! I've become so smitten with these flowers that I've even created a Ranunculus Pinterest board.




Okay, aren't these absolutely gorgeous?  {And I would kill for that teacup!}

Now I know the next one says "Mom" but it could just as easily say "Happy Easter!"

I can see them now, adorning the table at Easter brunch.  Or any brunch for that matter.  I think I'm in love.  How about you?



I would love to see this mix in a line of vases going down the center of the Easter table.  Who doesn't love ranunculus and grape hyacinth?

Well, I hope I've at least given you some inspiration before you head out to buy your fresh Easter flower table decorations.  Have I convinced you?  If not, what are you planning for that day?

Hope everyone's staying cozy and warm, wherever you are.
