Cindy's Centerpiece Party!





Today I am participating in Cindy's Centerpiece Party at My Romantic Home. I don't think anybody in bloggerdom doesn't know who she is. Her blog is beautiful and is just chuck full of lovely pictures and ideas for decorating and crafting. There will be lots of participants, I'm sure, with lots of wonderful creative ideas!

I didn't spend one (no not one) penny on this little centerpiece. The three tiered server was a Christmas gift from my Lovely Sister in Law. Of course I couldn't wait to use it. The valentines are even left over from last year.


So it really just goes to show you that all you really need is to use what you already have and a little inspiration... sigh... where would I be without my bloggin' buddies!!! :)


Happy Valentines Day!

LOVE this vignette Liz! That staggered tier stand is great...it adds so much interest.

Everything in my centerpiece is old too...literally. ;o) And it looks very similiar to last year's but of course I updated it some.

Liz, I have this same server (given to me by my daughter). I would never have thought to use it for a centerpiece. What a great idea! Yours looks so pretty. Thanks for the inspiration. I'll definitely be getting my server out to use for a centerpiece. laurie

What a lovely center piece!
And the Lord is really teaching me about trying to use what I already have these days. I am trying to be a good girl even in the yarn shop!{like... go to my HUGE stash BEFORE I run to the shop}.

I love the three tiered stand, different heights add a lot to a centerpiece.

Love the 3 tiered stand!!
Isn't it fabulous when we can just create our centrepieces out of what we have around the home.

I love your centerpiece! And, especially the valentines!

Janna said...

Those Valentines are TOO FLIPPIN' CUTE!!! I've never seen them before!

Gypsy aka Tam said...

Hi Liz,
what a wonderful job using that tiered server in your centerpiece. There is nothing like shopping in your own home and reusing items in different ways. Very creative and it makes a beautiful centerpiece!!!
Where does everyone find these cute cherubs??? I'm cherub deprived and have been searching in the thrift and consigment stores with no luck. I'll probably find dozends after Valentines Day LOL.
Have a wonderful evening,
Tam
