Centerpiece of the Month~ September

Once again, I collected centerpieces for the month of September. I love seeing these~ they give me a smile, as if I had the bunch of flowers on my very own table.

YarnStorm is showing off sunflowers she grew herself. A whole variety, from the garden to the kitchen.
My Notting Hill showed some salvaged boquets. I love this idea for recycling a boquet by filling a couple of smaller vases.

Jade has shared a simple bowl of apples, beautiful and edible!Pat also showed off a simple centerpiece of apples on her beautiful new dining table.DebraK at The Bunnies Bungalow fashioned this cloche made of chicken wire.Kimberly sent me pictures of these battery powered candles that she loves. She doesn't have a blog~ but I am glad to show this off for her.Phyllis who is a little Shabby in the City sent in a great centerpiece that I couldn't get to load... So instead I picked this tin full of apples. It would be perfect for my kitchen table. Layla's Lettered Cottage once again has a table setting that is simple, and fabulous.

Tina's Cherry Hill Cottage is filled with fresh flowers, bought in bulk.Do you see a pattern here? All of these are very economical and yet really creative. A centerpiece doesn't have to break the bank.
I am off to the market to buy some apples!!

Y'all enjoy!

I saw that wire cloche earlier and about 'died' over it!

I love all these table center pieces but I have a dilema at my house. We have to remove the fancy table dressing to set the table for every meal and my kids find it too much work......does anyone else have this problem or is no one using their dining table? I'd be interested to hear some opinion:)
