  1. A Year of Flowers: December

    Hide

    Unlike Narnia, where it's always winter and Christmas never comes, this land of ice and snow welcomes festivities (sound track: Louis Armstrong's "Cool Yule"). A combination of vintage and contemporary vessels holds white spider mums as well as seeded eucalyptus (available at florists) and blue Atlas cedar branches lightly frosted with silver floral spray paint. For a change of scene, line up containers across a mantel, along a windowsill, or down the middle of a table.

  2. How-To

    Bat Headband

    Hide

    Stack and fold two sheets of black paper in half. Enlarge template. Position template on fold, trace, and cut out, making two bats. With black craft wire, poke a hole in the center of one bat; hold the end of the wire. Glue second bat on top, sandwiching wire in between. Wrap opposite end of the wire around a thin headband (ours was 1/4-inch wide) to secure. Repeat, adding more bats.

  3. Simple Easter Display

    Hide

    To create a great Easter display without a great deal of effort, limit your palette to one spring-inspired color, such as yellow. 

    Dye eggs, and group them in compotes on beds of raffia. Stand flowers in a matching hue nearby (daffodils are shown here). As a final touch, dye bits of raffia and use them to tie the flower stems.

  4. April Fools' Trick: Blue Water

    Hide

    Turn the kitchen sink into a blue lagoon with nontoxic dye pellets, designed to tint children's bathwater. When the water is turned on, the burst of color will be short-lived yet shocking.
