My 12 Days of Christmas

Day 11 - The Centerpiece

The agony and ecstasy for me!  I want something pretty for the table, but I agonize over putting it together.
I planned ahead and started looking for materials early, and thanks to the encouragement of some talented flower-arranging bloggers [you know who you are!] it went easier.  The vase was Mother's.  It is beautiful glass, but a terrible shape for a beginning flower arranger.

Thanks to lots of greenery ("Otto Lueken", rosemary from the garden, and mystery evergreen) and a few flowers we're in business for the weekend.

Actually, we will talk more about this in a couple of days.


  1. Did I miss the picture? I am sure it is absolutely lovely. Bonnie

  2. Let's see it Webb!

    Loving this series and seeing your traditions. Bxx

  3. You're both right. I lost track of time and didn't get this done until mid-day. Forgot to attach the photo. A senior moment .. or perhaps a holiday moment!

  4. I think you were totally successful in putting something gorgeous together. Wish it would be gracing my table....
