The Evolution of a Centerpiece ...


So ... my feet are killing me. Something to do with putting on a brunch for 160 people. And the fact that I was in charge of the centerpieces. But they really turned out simple and lovely in just a few easy steps ... that took a few easy ... hours.

First take pint sized mason jars.

Add ribbon from the dollar bins at Michaels.

Flowers from Costco.

Tie 'em up. Cut the stems. Mix it up. Add some water.

Ta Da! Centerpieces. Times twenty.

Excuse me while I go lie down. Oh yeah ... how was your weekend?

Those are beautiful... I love the look of simple flowers and greenery that is mismatched, but flows just like in nature!

What a terrific idea...I wish you had posted it before I spent hours and hours spray painting terra cotta pots for 30 centerpieces!!!

Super Cute. My Mother In Law just sent me a bunch of very old mason jars. I'm smiling at the thought of how they would look filed with flowers and spread about my house already. Hello Spring.
