CenterPiece of the Month- April

Happy May Day! When I remember May Days of the past... I think of dancing around the may pole and lots & lots of flowers.

The perfect day to post the Centerpieces of the Month!

Krista who is In and Out of the Garden picked some beautiful roses from her garden.
Fragrant and glorious!









Meeta filled her vase with a splash of color with tulips. A BIG bunch of tulips in several different colors. There is something about tulips that just makes me smile.










With her Back Porch Musings Pat shared this unique centerpiece. She set the table for their first meal on the back porch. Spring is here!


Myrium at Once Upon a Tart is sharing a fun bowl of bulbs. This is springtime color that would last for weeks. As usual she includes directions for the centerpiece challenged.


Rhoda is the essence of Southern Hospitality. She shows us what you can do with those yardsale finds. Branches painted coral red and a vase full of seashells. Awesome!










At PalmaBella's Passions you can see the centerpieces that Palma made for our Slow Travel get together in Savannah. Remember this was all about travel... what could be more perfect than travelers from around the world? They remind me of what a small world we live in.

Thanks to everyone who shared their centerpieces with us. I look forward to them every month.

So, what have y'all got on your tables?

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hey, Sandi, thanks for sharing my centerpiece & not waiting on me to send it. I get very distracted with time, so I sure don't mind you using mine at all.

Happy May!
Rhoda
