  1. So pretty for spring! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

      Your welcome!

  2. Shelly Torola says:

    Trader Joe’s & your ideas = Fabulous! You’ve outdone yourself yet again 😊 The price point at Trader Joe’s plus the selection makes it hard not to buy all the (blooming) things every time I’m there. Thanks for showing another way to display all the loveliness! Those of us in Minnesota have to make our own Spring this year🌺

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I go there for the flowers and then end up getting some groceries! Yes, we need all the help we can get this year:( Maybe a good church sale would put a smile on my face;) Thanks, Shelly; always enjoy hearing from you!

  3. Lora, I really love how you’ve arranged your spring basket!! The hyacinths are soooo pretty with their ethereal stalks of blooms and the soft pink tulips and little eggs really add a lot of beauty. The chubby bird is cute and I totally forgot I have a bit white cement bird I could have used. Might have to reshoot and make another post… 🙂

    Enjoy your lovely table and happy spring to you,
    Barb 🙂

      Thanks so much, Barbara!

  4. Lora, love your combination of flowers and colors. The pink tulips are so pretty. Love all the little details you included in your basket. Yes, Trader Joe’s is great! I know you’ll enjoy your pretty centerpiece.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m absolutely loving it, Carol! Especially since Spring can’t seem to show it’s face around here yet:(

  5. Everything is sooo pretty!! You always have those cute little roses. I need to get some!! Love all the baskets above your hutch too!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you! It was quite fun decorating that “new” hutch!

  6. Your basket is beautiful. I love the bird rather than bunny/chick to extend it’s springtime decor! Your hutch with all the pastel-spring dishes is gorgeous!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, birds have a little more lasting power than bunnies, but bunnies still work for garden decor;)

  7. Trader Joe’s did you right with these gorgeous blooms Lora. Your basket is beautifully arranged and looks right at home in your lovely dining room. The hutch looks amazing too!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Michelle! I’m loving that “new” hutch:)

  8. Love This! You have inspired some ideas for a Mother’s Day gift. It’s always a treat when you are in my emailbox ☺️ (I know, a bit of a funny visual there…) If I remember to take a picture, I’ll send it to you. 🤞🏼

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So glad you were inspired, Beth! Yes, I’d love to see!

  9. Wow!!!!!! I love everything about your centerpiece. Each element is my favorite, if that is possible. I love pussy willows. Not only do they stand up, they add an element of texture. I love that things are potted and can be moved around, if necessary. The combination of flowers is amazing. I have learned a lot from your presentation. Thank you very much!!!!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, those pussy willows just dry and still look pretty! Glad you enjoyed it:)

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I appreciate that, Laura!

  10. Your basket is beautiful Lora! I’m so jealous you found potted bulbs, ours are long over here! You created such an inspiring table!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      And our outside ones aren’t even close to starting here:( Different ends of the country, indeed!

  11. I love your idea for this spring center piece. I also love your dining area with all the light coming in through those windows, makes for a beautiful place to enjoy a meal.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I do enjoy the sunlight streaming in the bay window!

  12. I love how your dining room turned out too! The hutch with all of the bright colors looks so happy and creating that fantastic centerpiece is over the top! Even the saddest of days would be brighter in there and bring joy to anyone. When I looked for flowers for my basket, I didn’t see potted tulips or those little pink and yellow flowers you have either. I WANT THEM!!!
    Thank you for joining in again this month. I always adore what you do. pinned

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I can’t get enough flowers right now! Thank goodness for my new favorite store, Trader Joe’s:) Thanks, Cindy!

  13. Hi Lora,
    I think your arrangement is awesome. So refreshingly spring, as we would like it to be. It’s amazing how using similar ideas, one creates and makes it their own. I always love looking at your posts.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Sandy; glad you’re inspired!

  14. I LOVE it, Lora!!! All of the different textures and colors in your display are so lovely. I love how you anchored the piece too by using a base! Amazing!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Rachel! Just the burst of Spring needed this year!

  15. The picture of your centerpiece with your China hutch in the background … loveliness embodied
    I’ll be studying to do something similar in my home

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Gail! Glad it inspired you!

    Years ago I would decorate the baskets up for all the holidays and place on dining room table, but now, whenever I purchase baskets, I use them as gift baskets for family, friends, neighbors older senior shutins, baby showers, birthdays, etc. Mostly filled with homemade items.
    Your Spring Centerpiece is beautiful by the way.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Those are all excellent ways to use baskets, Colleen! Thanks for the ideas:)

  17. Lora,
    Your basket is just beautiful. I love the tray to anchor the arrangement. Love all the beautiful blooms.
