A while ago, I came across this idea and thought it would be perfect as a treat for our "March Madness" activity in seminary.
In a phone call with my sister, she mentioned that when they go to the local Thai restaurant, she always orders something called "Chicken in a Bird's Nest." Wayne loves Thai, and that sounded delicious, so I gathered ingredients, searched for a recipe and gave it a try for dinner that week.
This pin - Re-grow Romaine Lettuce Hearts - looked intriguing, and since it wasn't going to cost me a cent, I decided to give it a try. According to the site, all I had to do was stick the end of my lettuce in a container of water, so I did. Here's what mine looked like a few days later:
Finally, this beautiful centerpiece caught my attention. Tulips and jelly beans - super simple.
I never did get around to checking the cupboard to see if we had a ribbon. (I didn't want to buy one if it wasn't necessary.) I also wasn't thrilled about sticking real tulips into the jelly beans, so I got fake ones. I noticed just now that there's a container inside the container. Oh, well. It was still a beautiful, cheery centerpiece for Easter.
