Centerpieces, Part 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashley Hawthorne @ 2:39 pm

I got an email from my friend, Katherine, asking for some ideas for cool centerpieces.  She worded it this way… “see what you can find out there that’s not just flowers; I don’t have the time, money or energy to go out and buy new flowers every week!!!  I love the ones with fruit in them but they just end up going bad eventually.  I need something that will last for a season; I don’t entertain formally enough to warrant much else!!!”  We have all been there!  What do you do in the center of the table (or coffee table or end table) that will be pretty and low maintenance?  The images and materials below are from Nettleton Hollow.  This site is PERFECT for ordering something fun and unique for a centerpiece.  Combine it with a simple glass or stainless vase and you are good to go!  I love that you can get something organic and natural but not have the upkeep of swapping it out when it dies,  They are dead already!  🙂  enjoy!


Preserved Cedar

dried fruit

cinnamon sticks



  1. Awesome ideas! And, I’ve been doing beautiful potted plants that bloom with little care…it’s a way to have fresh flowers around without having to spend $25-40 bucks every week.

  2. Ha! That’s me! 🙂

    After we emailed last night I got a bunch of stuff off Nettleton Hollow; the little mini oranges, some lavender, some tall curly stuff and … something else. I went a bit crazy. 🙂 But knowing it’s all dead already, I’ll get use out of it somewhere!! Hopefully it’ll come this week so you can help me arrange it next weekend!
