There's enough to think about when entertaining. In our house, the one thing that often gets the back burner are flowers. And it's ironic because I love fresh flowers, but it's the one thing that starts to seem overwhelming in the midst of planning a meal and picking up wine.
Flowers are lovely, and clearly the popular choice for nature-inspired table decor. But what about vegetables? Colorful, textured, appealing—they deserve some tabletop play before they make it to the plate, don't you think? Here are five vegetable centerpiece ideas we love for Spring.
Easter is around the corner, so I wanted to revisit these surprise eggs I made a couple years ago. I used them as placecards for an Easter lunch. These were inspired by Megan of not martha, and they are real eggs, hollowed out and stuffed with treats. The truly surprising thing, though, is that they were actually really, really easy.
Ah, Spring. You're all around me, and I'm not going to fight you. In fact, when I saw this lovely Spring bouquet—all blushing and verdant—it swept me away to the interwebs in search of spring-ey tabletop accessories and kitchen tools to match its bright, cheery colors.
New York hasn't had much of a winter this year (not that I'm complaining), and today it's a balmy 73 degrees—in March! Even though Spring's official start is still a week away, I'm going to call this one early, and these pretty herb table bouquets are mirroring my fresh, spring mood. As a bonus, they'll make your herbs last longer!
