Above: Two small arrangements are ideal for an Easter table setting; recreate the look by following our DIY tutorial. Above: Start with multicolored Easter egg radishes from your local greengrocer. Above: You'll need: Two bunches of Easter egg radishes A bunch of fresh sage A bunch of white sweet pea flowers A bunch of hearty white ranunculus Asmall round vase or two Gardening scissors (shown above, Ikebana Scissors ). Above: Create a foundation using a few stems of ranunculus and sage foliage. Above: Layer in your sweet pea stems, cutting most of them low enough to fill out the vase, with a few left longer and wilder. Add the ranunuclus, which act as face flowers, in groupings and at varying levels to show off the face of the flowers. Above: Be sure your radishes are well cleaned and pull of any foliage that has yellowed or has a nibbled-on look. Above: Add the radishes by tucking the greens into the vase or lightly placing them in between the sweet pea and ranunculus. Above: A larger finished arrangement (shown from above) works well if you have a round table.
