Centerpiece of the Month~ November

The round-up for centerpieces this month seems to have a theme going. Since Janelle started the Centerpiece of the Month, a year ago, we have seen quite a collection. For some reason this November, most of the centerpieces have something in common.

My entry was a simple bunch of gerber daisies in a vase of asparagus.
Joan sent in a picture of this centerpiece. The vase has golf balls in the bottom, can you see? She said that she has also seen it with eggs in the bottom~ which would have fit in with our theme.

Kim at Scrap-To-My-Lu sent in one of my favorites. She was decorated up for 'the food slinging'~ check out her site for lots of fun ideas! Her centerpiece was full of pumpkins and berries.
Jade at My Apples & Oranges always has the most wonderful photos. Her blog is a delight to look at. Here she has sent in a fabulous centerpiece of berries, offset with a pretty pumpkin. Perfect for a Thanksgiving table.
Meeta at What's For Lunch Honey has the ultimate post on centerpieces. She always takes the time to include detailed directions~ for those of us who are centerpiece challenged. This is a bouquet of apples.
Can you see the theme here? Everyone included something that is not your traditional flower centerpiece. They have included fruits and veggies that can make a beautiful longer lasting arrangement.
These pictures were so great that this month I've decided to add a prize to the winner of the month. Y'all leave a comment on who you think is most deserving and I will send off a little sumpin-sumpin.

Don't forget to send me a link for December~ what's on your table? I know there are some great holiday centerpieces out there.
All y'all vote for a winner!

They all look lovely...every single one of them. I am going to pick scrap to my lu as my favorite. I did not have a centerpiece this month. I hope to do one for December.

Hey. Good to find you again. Several months ago I tried to start a blog - elegant grace. I believe it was you who commented me on a picture of some fried green tomatoes I had made. I hope you remember. Well, that blog experience just did not take off, but I am trying again. Hope you can pay me a visit.

What lovely, lovely centerpieces!!! I love everyone's mix of colors and textures!

We're always cramped for space at our table (it usually becomes a homework depository)! Right now my centerpiece is only an aqua depression glass bowl with apples in it. I must do something a little more fancy!
