Welcome to Centerpiece Wednesday!
I made this star watermelon centerpiece tonight for my cooking group. It is delicious too. The fruit has a sauce that is made of 1/4 C Limeaid, 1/4C Honey and 2 Tsp. Poppyseeds.
I just love to see patriotic centerpieces with flags flying in them and flowers! It looks fresh and clean to me.
How about putting an old tricycle on the table! I found this in a book and thought it was very inventive. Wouldn't an old red wagon be adorable on a buffet table!
I found this idea on BHG...an old lunch box with old glass milk jars and colored rubber bands! To cute!
