Ok, here's the BIG IDEA upfront. Layer your centerpieces. It just adds interest.
I have had this bird paper lying around for years, and was going to line a drawer with it, but then I sort of thought it could be cool on the table, in lieu of a cloth napkin or runner.
These hydrangeas were just going to waste in my yard, and I've spent years judging people to have beautiful flowers in their yard, and don't pick/cut them to bring in their house. Now, I'm one of those people! Shame.
I like to layer and layer and layer. This is a gold charger, typically used at Christmas-time, but why not use it now?
Add texture with this basket.
Its a cool effect, unexpected, and the flowers will last for a few weeks, if the vase is kept watered. I could've brought in blue, purple, and green flowers, but I like the monochromatic effect, too.
What are you doing to think outside the box, this week?!
