I normally don’t put much on our dining room table. I guess I just didn’t really know how to leave things on the table without it feeling cluttered. But I think that changed today when I created this Succulent Centerpiece.
I was looking around my house and realized that I had a few elements that could go together to create a centerpiece that was simple, effective, and easy to remove for dinner time.
I started with a plain white serving tray that’s been sitting in the cupboard–not doing anyone any good–and decided to embellish it a little with some vinyl. I chose a swirly design and cut it out on my Silhouette (I seriously love my Silhouette) in some aqua and gray vinyl. Then I decided where I wanted them positioned and applied the vinyl.
I decided on putting them to the side to that I could put other elements on the tray without covering the design.
After that, I took a succulent planter in a cute tin bucket that was painted orange,
and gave it a little color change with a couple of coats of chalk paint.
After adding a little ribbon accent, it was ready to go on my serving tray with a set of cork coasters that I use for hot dishes (and it’s convenient to leave them on the table).
It’s a simple collection, but this centerpiece is fresh, easy, and fits my busy life.
What else do you like to put on your table that I’m forgetting?
