Centerpiece Wednesday!! Add a Pop of Color!

By Karin Brosnan - Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Last week I told you I would show you how I would use the same centerpiece but change it up a bit...I just added a pop of color.
ORANGE!! I simply changed the placemats and added a different salad plate on top of the white dishes
Orange and white polka dot salad plates...TJmaxx

I used the same hydrangeas from my garden placed in a large clear glass goblet.

I love how the orange changes things up and makes it bright and colorful.

Remember I didn't have any tall skinny candlesticks so I used some chunky ones with fresh leaves placed underneath them to bring the color up. Use what you will work.
The oranges are different from one another but I still think it works!

Doesn't this just say summertime!

Use your centerpiece over and over just change out a few pieces to make it look new and different! You could even use different colored flowers in the goblets. Or fill them with sugar, sand, small rocks or glass beads and place a voitive in the middle. let's see what you have all come up with for your centerpieces!!
Link up and link back and let's have a Centerpiece Wednesday Party!
