Here is a sneak preview of my Buffet Display for March. (Yeah, in case you hadn’t noticed, I missed February.)
This month’s display is all about celebrating srping – a full month before we’ll actually see spring come outside, it is going to bloom on my buffet!
I put what I believed to be forsythia twigs in two large vases with pebbles in the bottom and plenty of water. In the warmth of the house they will bloom before the bushes outside. Since I have been looking around though, I have my doubts that the bush I’ve identified in the front yard is actually a forsythia. Oh, well – They will be nice and green!
In the frosted pedestal vases I poured some dirt and sprinkled it heavily with wheat berries. Watered every day, these will sprout into a nice, thick carpet of ‘grass’.
The center pedestal stand is still awaiting inspiration. Over the weekend it may be the home of a carrot cake. We’ll take suggestions for what to do after that.
And at the far end, we have some eggs that I blew out and a page from “The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady“Blowing out the eggs was fun – Jeremy had never seen it done before – the look on his face was worth the hyperventilation and headache I suffered in the process. LOL
Oh, and there are some little, vintage doilies for added softness. It all looks a bit brown and bare right now, but that’s part of the charm of it – I’m so excited to see the green appear.
