Colorful Containers & Gummy Delight

Hey guys, how’s it going today? We’re diving into an exciting project—a vibrant spring container that’s set to dazzle with color and plant life. You can probably see some of the supplies laid out behind me on the table. I’ve been eagerly anticipating this project for weeks, and there are a couple of reasons why. First off, I simply love putting together containers—it’s always a fun and creative endeavor. But today’s project holds special significance as it’s destined for a school auction tomorrow. So, let’s get started and create something beautiful to brighten up someone else’s home!

 Gathering Supplies:Spring Spectacular

The first step in our spring container project was gathering the necessary supplies. This included a brand-new pot from the garden center, chosen for its color and shape that perfectly epitomized the spring aesthetic. Alongside the pot, a variety of plants were carefully selected to contribute to the vibrant display. These included pansies in different shades, hyacinth, tulips, and a mix of other blooms and foliage to add texture and depth to the arrangement.

Soil Preparation

With the supplies gathered, the next step was to prepare the soil. A regular-sized drain hole at the bottom of the pot ensured proper drainage. Fresh potting soil was then filled in, leaving the pot full to accommodate the upcoming plants. It’s essential to start with fresh soil to provide the best growing environment for the plants and promote healthy growth throughout the spring season.

Plant Selection and Arrangement

One of the joys of spring containers is the freedom to experiment with plant combinations. We started by selecting larger plants, like tulips, to serve as the centerpiece. Careful consideration was given to the placement of each plant, ensuring they had enough space to thrive while creating a lush and full look. The arrangement was gradually built up, layering different plants to add depth and visual interest

Planting Flowers and Making Homemade Gummy Treats

Spring is in the air, and what better way to celebrate the season than by spending a beautiful morning at the Garden Center and indulging in some homemade gummy treats? Join us on our springtime adventures as we fill our garden with colorful blooms and whip up delicious snacks straight from our own garden.

Exploring the Garden Center

The day starts with a visit to the Garden Center, where the sun is shining and the birds are singing. Excited to see the new batch of spring plants, we eagerly browse through the colorful displays of pansies, violas, and other beautiful blooms. With the goal of adding some vibrant color to our patio, we carefully selected the perfect plants for our pots.

Back home, we waste no time getting our hands dirty as we fill up our pots with soil and arrange our chosen plants. With a mix of helor, daffodils, and pansies, our containers come to life with a burst of springtime beauty. The combination of colors and textures promises to create a stunning display that will brighten up our outdoor space.

Homemade Gummy Snacks

After a busy morning in the garden, it’s time to satisfy our sweet tooth with some homemade gummy snacks. Using freshly picked strawberries from our garden and grape juice from our own grapes, we whip up a batch of delicious treats that are both healthy and tasty. The kids eagerly join in on the fun, filling up molds with the sticky mixture and eagerly anticipating the final result.

Enjoying the Fruits of Our Labor

As we wait for our gummy treats to set in the refrigerator, we take a moment to admire our handiwork in the garden. The vibrant colors of our newly planted flowers bring joy to our hearts and remind us of the beauty of spring. And when our gummy snacks are finally ready, we savor each bite, knowing that they were made with love from ingredients grown right in our own backyard.

Final Touches

As the container started to take shape, final touches were added to enhance its beauty. This included tucking in trailing Vinca for a cascading effect, strategically placing Primrose and Dianthus for bursts of color, and adding a few pansies for extra charm. Willow branches were also incorporated to add height and texture, providing the perfect finishing touch to the spring container masterpiece.


As our Spring Spectacular journey comes to a close, we’re filled with a sense of accomplishment and joy. Through our colorful containers and gummy delights, we’ve experienced the beauty of spring in all its glory.

Our vibrant containers, carefully curated with an array of blooms and foliage, now stand as a testament to our creativity and passion for gardening. Each plant chosen with love has transformed ordinary pots into works of art, ready to brighten any space and bring smiles to all who behold them.

And let’s not forget the delicious homemade gummy treats that have added an extra dash of sweetness to our springtime adventures. From the first bite to the last, each gummy has been a delightful reminder of the simple pleasures found in nature’s bounty.

As we reflect on our journey, we’re reminded of the beauty that surrounds us every day. Whether it’s the colorful petals of a flower or the fruity flavor of a gummy treat, there’s magic to be found in the little moments that make up our lives.

So as we bid farewell to this spring spectacular, let’s carry the spirit of spring with us wherever we go. Let’s continue to nurture our gardens, explore our creativity, and savor the sweetness of life’s simple pleasures.

Thank you for joining us on this colorful and delicious adventure. Until next time, may your days be filled with vibrant blooms and gummy delights, reminding you of the beauty and joy that spring brings.
