A Rustic Prairie Style Centerpiece

Hi Friends!

I decided to put our large, shabby white flower box to use again. It feels nice to have some fresh plants in the house this rainy, and often grey, time of year. 

I love the life, color and natural element plants add, especially when we can't spend as much time outdoors.

I like these cabbage plants because they are small and have a pretty pale pink color. They almost look like roses in full bloom. I planted them alongside some Baby's Tears plants and then added some Spanish moss and burlap around the edge of the planter. I finished by tucking in a few Dollar Tree candles.

Some ruffles and slightly wrinkled burlap for a prairie feel.

 And now I'm wondering what your plans are for the weekend? Staying in or going out? Tackling any home projects?

Our oldest two boys have basketball games today and then we're looking forward to having some friends over for dinner. I'm helping out in our 5-year-old's class at church on Sunday and then we'll need to break open the backpacks to see what homework awaits...

Thank you so much for visiting. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  6. What a beautiful centerpiece...mind if I copy??? I also love the contrast of textures on your table between the burlap and the ruffled white cloth underneath. Looks great. Enjoying reading your blog on this snowy (blizzard!) afternoon in Maine,
