An Uncomplicated Centerpiece

This is not the first time I am mentioning this, but in the earlier years of this blog, I did things really complicated.  Elaborate tablescapes, complicated mantels and intricate details. Now, as they say, “ain’t nobody got time for that.”  Not only is there no time, but the mess that I left in my wake was just ridiculous.  Now, I find 20 minutes or less, and a bonus if it is 10 minutes or less,or it doesn’t happen.  I don’t miss any of the clutter and I think I prefer the look of the simpler things too. A tray is my go to for almost decorating and especially a centerpiece.  Start with a tray.  Add some pretty flowers, a dishtowel and a candle.  And that fruit that is in your fridge?  Go ahead, take it out and put in your table and make sure everyone knows it is not “forbidden fruit” and should be eaten. It doesn’t get much more uncomplicated than that! (photos by Zevy Joy) SaveSaveSaveSave]]>

  2. So pretty and refreshing. Love all your decorating and posts. The flowers are gorgeous. The colors! I need to try one of your candles too.

  3. This post is “where I’m at” these days. Simple, quick, and with natural elements to decorate and display. And using greenery from the garden is so fresh and easy. I’m going out right now to clip some ferns to display in clear glass containers to freshen our bedside tables. No need for blossoms all the time.

  4. Laura, hope you are having a “day filled with grace”, too! Always enjoy your posts!
    I ordered that wooden box from you and I just love it! I have it on our dining room table. The tray makes any vignette look so nice! Our friends always comment on how nice it looks and how different it is! I’m so glad I could order it!
    Have a great day! Blessings!
