Create some Conversation with your Centerpiece – great idea from Elizabeth!
When designing centerpieces, look to fresh produce for a refreshing touch on your table. Plucked straight from the ground these carrots are simply bound in small bunches and dropped into a vase of water. Talk about easy centerpieces. The colors are brilliant – there’s nothing like the bright orange of a carrot contrasted against the spring green popping out of its top. Have fun creating inexpensive “art” for your table using nature’s bounty – it’s bound to be a subject of conversation
4 Inexpensive Items:
- 2 bunches of fresh carrots (6 in each bunch)
- 2 rubber bands
- glass vase
Note: You can adjust the amount of carrots you use for your centerpiece depending on the size of your glass container. I used a tall glass vase from a flower arrangement I had stored away and 2 bunches fit perfectly – you don’t want to pack them in too tight, part of the beauty comes from the free form created by some space.
4 Easy Steps:
- Rinse off your carrots, removing any debris or dirt.
- Using a rubber band, bind a group of carrots together (I did it just above the top of the carrot – you can see the blue rubber bands in the picture).
- Fill glass container ¾ of the way full.
- Insert bunches of carrots and “fluff” greens to fall fully.
