"Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day-like writing a poem or saying a prayer"
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh

We hosted our monthly Appetizer Club over the weekend. Like a supper club but without all of the formality and effort. We skip right to the fun part...easy to eat food and cocktails!
Speaking of easy, I needed an easy and informal arrangement for our table. I looked to my old school file (prior to the days of Pinterest) of ideas for inspiration and came across this...saved years ago, sadly I don't remember the source.
With upcycling in mind, I purchased a hosta that I could plant in the yard after its use as our centerpiece. I pulled some fern fronds already in our yard, wired them to floral picks and inserted them into the hosta. Easy, quick and reusable
While recycling our evening's refuse, I admired this simple yet interesting bottle. Upcycled, it's now a charming vase

Next time we host Appetizer Club, we'll be serving Tanqueray...so I can have this vase made!
