Are you expecting company and you’ve spent so much time tucking things into out-of-the-way places in the hopes that nobody sees the side of you that isn’t so cute, that you don’t have time left to fuss over the perfect tablescape?
Not to worry!
I’ve got you covered!
Take a long, narrow trough, tray, dough bowl (as long as the bottom is flat) or any other similar container that will hold a smattering of milk glass vases. Arrange them by alternating tall and short vases. I have 4 tall ones on one side and 3 on the opposite side. There are short vases in between the tall ones. Just make sure they look staggered and attractive.
Pop a pretty stem of flowers, either faux or fresh, into the TALL vases.
Add some sort of greenery or filler flower like perhaps baby’s breath, to the short vases. Remember you CAN use real flowers. These are vases, ladies!
Stand back and admire your handiwork!
I think you deserve a pat on the back and possibly even some sort of medal. Maybe a manicure in the time remaining that you DIDN’T spend fussing over a really tough centerpiece.
One of the best things about a centerpiece that is in a container or on a tray is that whenever you need to free up this space for serving dishes, it’s simply a matter of picking it up and placing it somewhere else until you are finished. So simple and you don’t have to destroy your centerpiece just to make room on the table for the mashed potatoes and gravy!
Now why don’t we pop over to Emily’s house and see what she threw together as a super quick and easy centerpiece. I’m know it’s going to be amazing!

Until next time, my lovelies…
