Tablescape Thursday….Fresh Centerpieces From the Grocery Store….
In this first shot (click on pic to enlarge)…left to right… I have used pink roses from BJ’s with white turnips on a platter; bright green Granny Smith apples (mmmm…one of those would taste good right now) with pink roses in a footed pink bowl; and lemons with yellow roses and berries (I forget what those are called) in a cut glass bowl.
If you look close, in the foreground, you’ll see I tied my napkins up with bright green ribbon and tucked in a rosebud…I love to do this on a dinner table!
This next centerpiece is simply an assortment of fruits arranged in my footed cherub bowl (one of my favorite pieces) with some peonies from my garden tucked in…how much easier could it get?!
This arrangement will add Romantic Elegance to your table, don’t you agree?!
The next two centerpieces are for a more casual setting…and for those of you who grow your own veggies…practically no-cost to make! The upside here is that you can eat the centerpiece the next day!
This first one is done in a rattan basket, lined with a cloth napkin. I arranged corn, carrots, purple cauliflower, green beans, radishes, red pepper, parsley, brussel-sprouts and some greens with some small sunflower-type flowers and yellow yarrow from my garden.
Again I ask…could it get any easier?!
I DO hope you’ve been inspired to take a fresh look the next time you go through the produce department in your grocery store…and to think outside the box to come up with your own version of a “Grocery Store Centerpiece”!
Thank you so much for visiting…I do so enjoy our time together!
Now…you really need to go on over and say hello to our lovely hostess, Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch and then visit all the other inspiring tablescapes that are waiting for you!
