This is not to say I’m not still a glamour girl, what with the high style arrangements that knock your socks off. I still want and will have those. But no one seems to linger over those high styling beauties. They are too busy being drawn into the dinner party. And that is where my table shines.
I am so in tune with table centrepieces that it’s my go to order for anything from a birthday to a thank you. Why? Simply because it can be put anywhere you want to have it. They are also long lasting (as long as you remember to water it and mist it).
When I wanted a table centre for a man and had no idea what to do, Janice created a mid height square vase lined with stones, accompanied by manly flowers and foliage and water. What a reception that got, all around. Simplicity at its best.
Without guests, there I am, at the sink at the kitchen window, enjoying my floral splendour, a small treat.
However, never forget that small and elegant can always win the day.
