Stir crazy. That has been the girls and me. It has been raining like crazy. To be honest, the rain is my favorite weather. I love thunderstorms and curling up with a good book and a cup of tea in front of the window. Even in the summer! But when it goes on too long...I get a little restless.
So yesterday I was looking at all my flowers in the front yard drooping from being sopping wet (I really need to prune them back but it makes me sad every time I do it). I love all the pink (two shades of pink actually...tee hee) and white. These flowers above are vincas which here in Florida are perennials. They re-seed fast and I got a bunch of them this year. But the blooms are fragile and fall off easily.
My girls always pick them up off the ground to give their mommy flowers. I put them in this little shallow dish and treasure those flowers from their sweet little hearts. But then I got to thinking and had a little inspiration. What if I did the same thing but gave it more impact by putting several glass vessels together as a centerpiece?
That might be really pretty and completely FREE!
So I scooped some up and hunted down some glass containers I have on hand.
I trimmed some of the stems for the really shallow dishes (most are votive candle holders) so they could float on the water.
It DOES look pretty! Almost elegant.
And the clustered glasses together look even better!
This would be such a fast and easy idea for a spontaneous dinner party or get together. I like the idea of placing them on a coffee table with some candles for a pretty display.
I love simple, pretty, and free!
What do you think? What would YOU do?
PS. I have more picnic party ideas coming soon!
Hugs and have a great weekend my sweet friends!
