Centerpiece Wednesday!

By The Style Sisters - Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Welcome to the 1st Centerpiece Wednesday!!
I am so excited to see what all of you have done!!
Today I am highlighting some beautiful sunflowers in a crackled finish vase that my mom got from a garage sale!! and my new cute rusty metal cloche.
I love the bright yellow of a sunflower and I found these at the grocery store ....3 large sunflowers for only $3.99 so I bought two sets so the bouquet would look fuller and then I added some cut branches off of a couple of trees from my backyard to add even more fullness.
Once I had these two items together I knew how I would set the rest of the table... casual and yet colorful (More of the table will be seen on Thursday for Tablescape Thursday so stay tuned)
For me....I think a centerpiece sets the tone of the table...what you use to place in the center will ususally determine how the rest of the table, mantel, coffee table, etc... will go.
Maybe you like things that shimmer and sparkle, or maybe you have a special keepsake that you like to put on your table...whatever it is...I hope what you use makes you happy when you look at it. I fell in love with this darling rusty metal cloche and knew it would make a great addition to my table. I liked it because it was different and could be used in a myriad of ways. I wanted to have some yummy dessert placed in it for this photo ....but I ran out time.
I did add one of my white napkin rings on the top to give it a tad of femininity :)
You can still purchase napkin rings here on my blog for $1.00 each.I can't wait to see some of your creative ideas of how to put together a centerpiece. I love sharing ideas and finding creative new ways to do a centerpiece. I know we can all inspire one another to stretch ourselves as we continue to make our houses homes.Sunflower Centerpiece
Don't forget to link up to this party and make sure you post a link back here to the Style Sisters so we can spread the word about Centerpiece Wednesdays! In the future I think it might be fun to have a theme or a color that we can work around. Are you ready for a challenge? Next week I think we should think about the upcoming day. Red, White and Blue? Rusty Cloche, Orange Pitcher, Summer TablescapeNow lets have a Centerpiece Wednesday Party!!
