A few days ago I posted my Mother's Day Brunch wrap up and told you I'd be back with the simple way to make this centerpiece using store bought fruit and roses from my yard.
Gather your supplies. In this case, roses and hydrangeas from my yard, an empty olive jar, a glass vase and tangerines.
Fill the jar with water and set it on the bottom of the glass vase. Use the tangerines to wedge the jar in place and keep it stable.
Keep adding tangerines. Toss in a few sticks if you want to. (I always want to... I love sticks!)
Start adding your flowers.
Take your finished arrangement and set it somewhere that makes you happy.
Be prepared to move it someplace else once your husband comes home from work and starts to complain because once again, you've put something tall on the coffee table and it will block his view of the TV if he decides to lay on the couch to watch it. (deep breath!)
Move it cheerfully, knowing that your husband has many wonderful traits that far outweigh his wacky notion that form should follow function.
