"Saturday Night Special"...

I'm joining the party at "Saturday Night Special" at Funky Junk Interiors. Please visit Donna for a list of others that are participating.

I wanted to share a beautiful centerpiece that I created for a "Mother's Day Table" at my house. I used a garden tray that I have had for a long time; I think I may have purchased it from Big Lots. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the tray before I filled it; it was divided into four sections. I filled the tray with beautiful purple and yellow pansies along with purple and white violets. I then added some Vinca vine, so I would have something draping over the edges of the tray. I tucked in some white doilies for an extra touch of charm, a large off white bird and a smaller bird with a crackle finish sitting on a nest. I decided to tuck in a green pillar candle holder and topped it with an off white candle. For the back drop I picked two birdhouses and one of my topiaries to add some height to the centerpiece. I attached a bluebird to one of the birdhouses for a bit of color. The centerpiece is sitting on a purple floral scarf that normally would be around my neck. I thought it looked nice with the centerpiece, what do you think?

I had no plan when I began to design this, it just came together as it is, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this and thought it was so pretty with the candle mixed in with the flowers. In the evening it looks so pretty all a glow on the table. I've had it for over two weeks and it still looks nice. I will be sad when I have to take it apart and plant the flowers, but there is always a new design to be made and I look forward to creating something else unique.

Happy Mother's Day to you, I hope you are blessed and receive a beautiful floral arrangement on your special day. Or you can do like I did and create something special for yourself.

I hope your day is filled with SUNSHINE. Thank you for visiting, your kind comments are always VERY much appreciated.
