Inspired by Rosemary: An Easy Centerpiece Idea!
Inspired by the herb of friendship–rosemary–take a vase and line it with fresh rosemary sprigs. Then in the center place your favorite grocery store plant.
Tie the colors of the plant in with bright colored napkins.
Perfect for entertaining as the parties continue for many this week, leading up to New Years.
Enjoy the scent of friendship is in the air while you visit with your friends around the table!
Do you add herbs in to your centerpieces for filling or scent?
Thanks for the insight. It brngis light into the dark!
Simple and beautiful! Happy New Year to you and your family!
I love the smell of rosemary!! My neighbor has two bushes and he told me to help myself anytime, I think i will!! Love your new floating pictures too! I want floating pictures!
I love the rosemary idea!!!
Great idea…I have a new look and giveaway…come over!
I need an Herbs for Dummies book and/or class! The closest I’ve gotten to something like this is the cinnamon scented pinecones from Michael’s! What a great idea, though!
Yes, absolutely. I love using herbs as a centrepiece for a quick brighten up of the dinner table sometimes too. Great reminder, thanks for sharing this Sandy.
Hi Sandy! This is a wonderful idea! Wishing you a terrific 2011! P.S. I can’t believe how grown up Abbi is- what a beauty!
I don’t ever use herbs as decorations. I love the idea though. I also didn’t know that rosemary was the friendship herb. I love how earthy and fragrant it is. I’m having some friends over New Year’s Eve for a quiet supper. I think I will try to incorporate this idea in my tablescape. Thanks!
I love the smell of Rosemary. I really have never used it as a centerpiece, but I really love what you did.
Sandy, first of all I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas! Second, I never knew rosemary was the “herb of friendship” – I love that! I’m definitely going to look for little rosemary plants to wrap up and give to my girlfriends (we always get together with families on New Year’s Eve and exchange little gifts). Now I’m off to find that recipe Jennifer mentioned above – French Bread Pear Bake – that sounds yummy!
Our grocery store was selling a Rosemary Tree, that I just loved. I’m hoping to maybe grab one marked down after the holidays. I love the smell of rosemary, and also using it fresh in my meals.
I made your French Bread Pear Bake for Christmas morning, and we all declared it a favorite! I think this will become part of our new Christmas morning breakfast. SO good, and easy to prepare. Also…SO excited to get your book for Christmas! I can’t wait to sit back later today…or tomorrow…with a cup of coffee and read through it. Now I can stop with all the entering giveaways, trying to win the darn thing…LOL! (I’ll still enter them…I have lots of friends who would love this book too…) :)
Hope you had a lovely holiday! Cheers from Canada!
