Centerpiece of the Month~ February

February was a great month for centerpieces. Something about Valentine's Day and Springtime flowers had everyone in the mood! I am posting a little earlier than usual~ while we are still in February.

I snitched this one~ but I don't think Palma will mind. Palma Bella's Passions posted some poppies from her yard in southern California. Can you believe she grew these?

Nature Girl sent in a pretty arrangement in a wine glass~ so simple! Yet so perfect

Pam and her Sidewalk Shoes is my adopted blogger. She shared her Lenten roses. She got these right out of her yard as well.

Myriam at Once Upon a Tart always sends a beautiful arrangement. This one was inspired by the first signs of spring. She'll show you how to do it yourself... check it out.

At Cherry Hill Cottage there is a perky percolator full of carnations. These will put a smile on your face for a while!

Dust Bunny Hostage is hot, hot, hot. I admit that I had to talk her out of this one.

Pat at Back Porch Musings had an unbelievable Valentine's table. Sandi McBride may not be posting centerpieces~ but she knows where to find them! Thank you Sandi~ and Pat!

What's For Lunch Honey sent us a unique Valentine's bouquet. No flashy red and pink, just the pureness of white. Meeta used creamy roses and ranunculus with silver threads, and then took a perfect picture.At The Bunnies Bungalow
the table was set with doilies, ribbons, flowers and a key to her heart.
I wonder who her lucky Valentine was??

We had so many entries that I don't need to post mine~ but I will say that I had some beautiful roses on my kitchen table. (for those of you who may have been worried for me.)

Thank all of you for taking the time to send in your centerpieces. I can't wait to see what's in store for March!

What have y'all got on your table?
