centerpiece

I wanted to share my updated centerpiece. Some of you may remember that Laura and Aaron gave this to me for my birthday in November. At that time it had a green candle, pine boughs, pine cones and some glittery balls in it. This piece is so nice, because it can be changed with every season. It helps to have a daughter who is a floral designer!
Laura picked out some things for me to put in it for spring; stones, moss pieces and spring flowers. It looks springy and cheery and I love seeing it on my table.

So pretty! I love the whole concept of changing for seasons or special events.

Bonnie said...

Cool centerpiece ! I'm glad you explained what was in it though because at first I thought it was broccoli and lettuce !

Mari said...

You are funny Bonnie! After you said this I looked at the picture again and I saw it too! It's not the best photo!

Mary said...

Mari,

Love the moss and flowers with the stones. You are going to have such fun with this piece. Your daughter gave you the perfect birthday gift.
Blessings,
Mary

That's funny...broccoli and lettuce.

It is very pretty and I'd like to borrow Laura for just a little bit if I could.

It's beautiful and so clever! I told you, you're a decorating diva, Mari. You could even put a baby turtle down in there ...

It's beautiful, it looks like the glass has little bubbles in it too.

That is so pretty! And, I know this is totally random, but I love the color of the wood on the table, too!

Mari,
I have a container similar to this collecting dust in my closet. This gives me incentive to use it. Thanks for the great idea.

Deb said...

Mari, i have to agree with Bonnie, I thought it was broccoli too, this is giving me some ideas. . . I love it:)

Nancy said...

That is beautuful, I really like it.

Musicaljean said...

Beautiful! I would definitely need my daughter's help to know what to put in it each season. That's just not my gift.

The Curnews (Demara) said...

Yes I like how Springy it looks too! Although, in the photo probably cause my eyes are bad I see brocolli and a little bit of lettuce mutated cauliflour in the bottom of it on top of the rocks. maybe it's the Artist in me coming out too, don't know Maybe when I'm done writing this I'll click on the image to see if I can see it bigger...to see what's REALLY in there! :)
