We hosted a barbeque yesterday for some of my husband’s former co-workers. I wanted to have couple of centerpieces, but wasn’t in the mood for cut flowers. So, I headed to my local discount garden center and picked out some attractive bedding plants that would work with my color scheme. Burgundy salvia, some dusty miller, grasses, etc.
Then, I looked for an inexpensive container to place them in. I found a rectangular vinyl tray for $7 or $8. I just had to make sure it was deep enough to hide the plant containers.
Next, I used some disposable storage containers to set in the tray to allow for some plants to sit higher than others.
Once I had filled the tray with all of my bedding plants, I filled in the gaps with some Spanish moss.
The result: A beautiful centerpiece that I can take apart now and plant the plants in my garden or patio containers!
