DIY: Easter Egg Radish Centerpiece

April 3, 2012

A DIY floral arrangement inspired by Easter egg radishes, an heirloom variety that comes in shades of pink, red, purple, and white and resembles the colored eggs of the season.

Photography by Alexa Hotz.

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
  • A small 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.
