Beauty on a Budget Centerpiece and Pink and Green Tablescape

Beauty on a Budget Centerpiece from your own backyard!

I recently bought the Pottery Barn "Flowers Style Recipes" and saw a fun idea using a glass cylinder vase and decided to try it. (Directions at the end)

Beauty on a budget tablescape: White dinner plates along with some sparkly lime green salad plates just make it feel like I am on vacation in the carribean! They always use bright beautiful colors and flowers.


Hot pink napkins to match the flowers in the vase and some of my white napkin rings. $1.00 each (large quantities available for weddings) The contrast of the white against the bright pink and lime green is so stunning. It reminds me of watermelons!

Simple wine goblets and basic silverware complete the look. Here is the directions for the centerpiece. 1. Using a cylinder vase that is approx 8" tall fill the lower part of it with some bendable stems with leaves. (I have these pliable flowers growing in my backyard and they annoy the heck out of me because they take over the garden but they worked perfectly to wrap inside the bottom of this vase), 2, I gathered flowers from the yard including the branches of pink crepe myrtle and secured them with rubberbands. 3. Cover the rubber bands with a ribbon and secure ribbon with a floral pin and lay them in the vase off to the side. (Measure the amount of water to so the ribbon is not underwater) There you have it..... a bit of beauty on a budget from the backyard.
