Ready for Spring in a Teacup?

2 Materials
21 Days

Set a lovely Spring Table. Spring Green. Fresh Green Grass. Chipped China Teacups. Pretty. Sweet. Fun. Start Now!

Gather China Teacups. One for each place setting.

I found lovely china teacups with saucers on Amazon.

Teacups and saucers/set of 4. On Amazon LINK.

Fill each cup with soil.

Fill soil to the teacup rim.

Liberally sprinkle grass seed on the soil.

Scott's Turf Builder Grass Seed. Amazon LINK.

Fill each cup with the soil and seed.

Gently cover the seed with soil.

Gently water each cup. Be careful not to disturb the seeds.

A water spray bottle works great.

Set outside in Full Sun. Water daily. And Wait.

Grass seed takes from 7 to 10 days to start growing.

A full cup of lush grass should happen within 21 days.

Surprise! Spring Green Grass in a Teacup!

Set a Sweet, Sweet Spring Table.

Add Jelly Beans for Sweetness, Pops of Color, and FUN! :)

    Hi LS - Dyed shredded coconut is an excellent idea and replacement for the grass! Thanks for sharing! Jeanne - Doodle T and Me!

    Neat idea, but you can pick up tea cups and saucers at your thrift stores for next to nothing and be supporting something local. Just a thought. They are pretty though.
