Now That's Spring Water!

Here's a simple and pretty idea for your Spring Celebrations,
inspired by something I've done before...

At the 'Summer Retreat' vintage show I hosted on my farm on an island in Washington state,
I created a container of flavored water for guests to enjoy.
Frozen blueberries sank to the bottom of the container, and red strawberries floated on the water -
creating a perfect 'Red, White, & Blue' striped effect.
And I snapped a photo of it because I thought it was pretty:
red white and blue water farm fresh entertaining ideas from homewardFOUNDdecor.com
Then last summer, I shared it here on the blog.
Apparently, y'all liked it -
because this last-minute image is my MOST POPULAR PIN ever!

I thought it was time for an update on that idea for Spring, 
so I created flavored water using citrus and flower petals!
It's a bright, pretty Spring look for your beverage station at a brunch or luncheon.
[ Now let's see how THOSE pics do on Pinterest ;) ]

Here's how to get the separated floating layers:

 * Fill container 3/4 full of cold water. 
* Add citrus slices. 
* Add ice cubes carefully so that they float on top of the citrus.
* Then add in the flower petals, which will float on top of the ice cubes.

I used pretty pink geranium petals and bright yellow lemons...
but there are SO many color and flavor combinations you could try!

... and you know, you COULD put some plastic Easter eggs in the container, too ;)
