Flowers As Your Table’s Centerpiece

I don’t know how it happened but, since my passion of food has grown, so has my tablescapes. Whether I’m using a type of food, for example; lemons and limes, or flowers, they need to be simple. Nothing, over the top, crazy. As the weather starts to get cooler, and the Fall season is near, the flowers are amazing. I think just having a simple arrangement, of flowers in the house, can brighten your day. I learned that when making an arrangement, it’s important, no matter the type of flowers, to keep the same color pallet. Like this one, I have bright yellow sun flowers, making them the star of this arrangement. Then I just built it up from there. I used yellow “mums” and small yellow daisies as the fillers. I learned something else too. Since flowers can be pricey, I definitely want them to last as long as possible.  When I bring the flowers home, I remove them from their plastic packaging and separate each of them on a table. I then stand them up next to different size vases to see which one is going to work the best. Once I’ve figured that out, then, I take a pair of scissors and cut them, to the length I want them to be,  for the vase I’m using. Next, I take a small paring knife and cut the very bottom on the diagonal to the flowers can drink up as much water as possible. As far as the water goes, there are so many ideas that I’ve heard on how to insure your flowers stay and look fresh. The one thing that I’ve found that works for sure is, to keep the water from turning cloudy. Keep it as clean and clear as you can. Remove the water, at the least, every other day and replace it with fresh water.
