Plant grass – well, it’s really not grass it’s …

cat grass!

  1. I have wanted to do Wheat grass. How long will Catnip survive indoors?

  2. I love those hobnail milk glass cups. They are perfect for this. Great idea, Kelly.

  3. That a great idea, i have so many little milk glass pieces and this would definitely brighten up our home. I will just have to be sure the catnip is out of our cats reach!

  4. Love you milk glass ontainers.
    Have done this in years past but I had stuck in some bunnies and little chicks in among the grass.

  5. fonda rush says:

    wonderful idea! i think my cats would go for their goodies before spring arrives!

  6. I have done something similar in the past with wheat grass seeds and have been looking all over for it, but haven’t found any yet. If I don’t find the wheat grass, I’ll plant some catnip! Thanks for the idea!

  7. Cute! I haven’t tried killing catnip yet, maybe I’ll give it a shot :)

  8. That is a super cute idea!

  9. This is super cute Kelly!!! I really love it since you know I can showcase my milk glass collection this way too! I really want to try this, where did you get catnip? I totally have black thumb and praying I wont kill something like this!

  10. This looks divine! Love the idea…But…with two kitty cats around the house and climbing everywhere…I wonder for how long it will look as pretty as yours! LOL…I think I will enjoy yours instead and save me the tears of seeing my display “EaTen”. Thanks for posting Kelly!

  11. Glad you told me those eggs were blown out, because I was thinking I’ve been doing it wrong…. we got chickens to have eggs and I thought maybe all you have to do is plant them to get ’em.


    • Hahaha! Bliss, you’re a hoot! I’m afraid I couldn’t do this craft ‘cuz I got cats. I have one that’s already addicted to treats…I’d hate to add kitty crack to the mix!

  12. Bliss is just so funny … I was going to say something cute, but to follow Bliss’s comment, I was laughing so hard, I forgot what I was going to say. Anyway Kelly … growing eggs is a fun and very pretty decorations. Thanks for the idea.

  13. What a cute itdea, I love the milk glass. Very pretty. I can’t wait for spring, it has been a wet and windy winter in Northern NJ.


  14. What a cute idea! I’ve never tried to grow catnip before! It looks amazing in those milk glass containers!

    Have a great day rock star!

  15. Pretty!! I love this idea! SO perfect for Spring :) Pinning.

  16. This is such a cute idea for an Easter table centerpiece. I may just have to borrow it!

  17. LOVE THIS!!!!! It is perfect! Jen

  18. My cats are begging me to make this centerpiece. And they’re not very ladylike when they beg. I love the milk glass containers – so perfect for early Spring!

  19. These are adorable, Kelly! I love the eggs ‘planted’, too. (but do you mean ‘cat grass’? It doesn’t look like catnip that I’ve seen before.) These are perfect little Easter centerpieces. :)

  20. Do you have a little mower… gonna need to be cut soon! Too cute, I love the color of the eggs with the beautiful green grass!

  21. I never would have thought of growing grass for a centerpiece, but what a great idea! It looks so cute!

  22. I am so doing this! LOVE them!

  23. Pretty Kelly! I am with Jessica on this one :) You are all over the spring decor. Gonna have to get moving over here. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  24. Great idea Kelly…love the grass in those cute pots!!…Are they vintage hobnail milk glass?

  25. I do this with wheat grass each year, but the eggs are such a pretty accent! There’s just something about having something fresh and green sprouting that makes you feel like you can make it through a long winter. Thanks for the pretty inspiration!

  26. How cute! I am still depressed that I didn’t do much for Christmas decor, I totally skipped Valentines, now I have to do Easter? It is on my birthday this year too. I think instead I will just decorate everything with Happy Birthday themes. I love the Cat Grass, as long as it won’t attract Cats, it looks good.

  27. So sweet Kelly!! I love it! :)

  28. I just love this!! So springy and sweet. Makes me long for Easter! Thank you for sharing this great project!

I can’t say thanks enough!!

  37. I absolutely love your “grow your own centerpiece!”
