Start the grass seed for this springtime centerpiece at least one week before Easter.
  • White round serving dish (about 14-in. diameter x 3-in. high)
  • Tete-a-tete daffodil plant for the center of the centerpiece and three or four additional plants for extra blossoms (choose plants that are about 3 inches tall)
  • Rye grass seed
  • Potting soil
Place the daffodil plant in the center of white container. Fill the remainder of the container with potting soil.
Add grass seed to the soil. The grass will germinate and grow to be a couple of inches high in a week. It will continue to grow and fill in the space around the plant. (If the grass gets too long, cut it back with a scissors.)
Before displaying, cut blossoms from the extra plants and insert a toothpick into the stem. Place the blossoms in the grass where desired. (These blossoms will stay fresh for a couple of days.)
Editor's Note: The daffodil plant in the centerpiece could be left in its plastic flowerpot. That way, it could be swapped out if the blossoms aren't fully opened on the day it is needed.
