Trying Green in the Great Room

Welcome to the great room today! 

I guess you could consider this a continuation of the last post, where I introduced you to some changes in the great room. 

Well, I have been tinkering with the room again. :-) Since I have the new tables I am playing with different table top vignettes.

Hey all, I hope you have been having a good week. And if not...the weekend is here! :-)

Well, I finally made a decision to help bring our great room design together...after three years of living in our house. ha.  I am slow, slow, slow!

Take a look at my latest change...

Spring Bunny Tablescape

Welcome to the blog!


I have been out and about this week in Lexington visiting with a friend who recently moved into a new to her stone cottage. We spent a day hitting several shops, and indulging in a piece of pecan pie from Ramseys on "pie day."  I am running a bit behind on my blog work...but sometimes a girl needs to get out and just run around. ha!

Simple Floral Arrangements



After a few sunny days, we had a dark rainy day. Well of course! When I should have been doing some house cleaning and ironing, I chose to play with a couple of arrangements. Those jobs will wait another day. ha!

Arrangement #1


I spotted this tall pottery vase in the corner of the family room and thought...hmmm, I think that my "real feel" tulips from Hobby Lobby would look good in it. And I was right! :-) 

Arrangement #2



When I was in Hobby Lobby after Christmas I picked up a couple of small greenery wreaths at 50% off. 

They have been laying around the house and today was the day I created an arrangement with them. When I bought them I thought of at least a half dozen ways to use them around the house and this is one of them.


Step 1, I began with a $2 plastic charger as the base. 

Step 2, Then I placed the wreath on top of the charger. And then...


Step 3...I put a candle in the middle. I wanted the charger underneath the wreath so that if there should be any candle wax to drip it would not get onto a good tablecloth or nice wood table. 




I think the wreath/candle idea would look lovely with a few, or several, down the middle of a long table. One could add some fresh baby's breath to make the arrangement even more special. 


Bonus...my funny bunny arrangement!
