Herbs for Centerpiece Wednesday

Since the sun doesn't want to shine
and help the posies bloom I resorted
to my little herb garden for my Centerpiece

I used all my favorite little vases and filled them with
parsley, chives, sage, purple sage,
oregano and mint and placed them in this
wonderful metal tray.

I love the scent of the fresh herbs!!!

I think I would serve sliced fresh tomatoes, cuumbers and avacados

with provolone cheese, goat cheese and an assortment

of fresh breads. Everyone could clip a little

of their favorite herb to season their veggies.

I adore this litttle bird nestled in the basket.

I found him on sale for $1.25. What a deal!

I am so excited to see all the ideas for
Centerpiece Wednesday. I think it is such a great idea.

Everything begins with the centerpiece

since it is the focal point of any table.

I am participating in Centerpiece Wednsesday

Love your centerpiece and the idea for your meal! It's always fun to tuck a few herbs into a flower display, they smell so good!

This is an idea I am going to mark for future reference. I love the tray of herbs and the menu would be just perfect for an afternoon gathering with Soil, Toil and Thyme (my garden club). Thanks so much for sharing!
