The Obsession Begins…
So, the other day, while I was picking up my husband at Bart (San Francisco’s train system), and I spotted three beautiful flowering apple trees in the parking lot.
Immediately, I thought how much I needed these flowers for my Easter houses.
To say I was obsessed is to put in mildly.
Well, every time I drove by these trees, I just wanted to pluck them off the tree. One morning I went out of my way to drive by them, and I even came prepared and brought my snazzy garden pruners.
But did you know that my husband calls me a model citizen? Yup, I insist on stopping at yellow lights despite almost getting rear-ended by the car behind me. So, you can imagine I was way too chicken to cut the branches the other day.
I shared my apple blossom obsession with my Instagram friends and followers and one person said she would bail me out of jail.
I had a good laughed and thanked her.
So, over this past weekend, our family decided to venture into San Francisco for a yummy dinner. And guess what? We decided to take the Bart as our means of transportation.
Hello!! I now have some accomplices who could help me pick my spring flowers. My eyes were bright and excited, and I couldn’t wait to get back from the city so that I could get my hands on some them.
I shared my devious plan with my husband, and he was like, what do you want us all to do?
But, my daughter and my husband finally went along with my plan. To tell you the truth I didn’t give them another option.
So, we stole these beautiful branches.
Now, I’m not condoning what we did and I don’t want to encourage you to do this, but oh my goodness, aren’t they just marvelous? They are the perfect flower for my Easter houses!
But, this time around I bought some cupcake icing to clean up the corners of the houses.
You have to make these Easter Houses!
Also, I bought the edible Easter grass which is made in Germany. So, it comes in long blades of grass, and you can cut the grass or not depending on your project.
Here is the link to the mini-gingerbread village that I used an also the frosting. And if you like to place them on all a white cake stand, I found one that you might like. But, you know where I found my apple blossoms, shh, don’t tell anyone!
Well, off to take a photo of my bouquet of apple blossoms for Instagram. I hope you enjoyed this post and say, “hi” in the comments since I always love to hear from all of you.
