Table Top Tuesday & Centerpc. Wed. - playing with leftovers from Dee's birthday table Part I

Remember this from a few weeks ago!  Don't go away now,
till you see what it is....................lol

Hidy Ho Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well and happy

and getting ready for Fall too!!

I have been decorating my lil heart out over here all
morning, making this place look like Fall, and still 
working on it........have to say I am wearing down.........
talked to a friend on the phone and sat down awhile,
big mistake, sitting down that is, cause now I feel
 like taking a nap!!  lol  
So thought this was a good time to come and finish
up this post.  Already had all the pics loaded.

Well, this is not a post on Fall................
but it is a post about table centerpieces.  Remember
I told you a few weeks ago...I was playing with the
leftovers from my daughters birthday table.

If you would like to see the Birthday table just click here.

Told you I like to see how many different ways I can do
things with the same elements.  So these would be part
of the results,  I'll show you the rest next week.

As you could see in the header picture,  the top had green 
flowers,  so I sent those home with my girl,  so needed
something else to stick in where the flowers were.
You can see I kept the lil turtle in.....

How about the cylinder of limes, with a candle added to 
the top. Remember my candle lid turned candleholder, well, 
it fit perfectly in the cylinder with a candle.  Liked the way
 it looks. Then added the small florals that were at each place
 and other candle jar lids with candle with raffia wrapped
 around them. and just added the placemat underneath
with some well placed strewn leaves.  Also draped my
brown tablecloth over the chairs as a backdrop.

Here I added some different candle holders,  and placed
the leaves and palm seeds differently.

 Posterized Version

I put palm seeds and a leaf in the bottom with the
candle on top.  I loved those leaves they were just
so pretty...........................

 Paint daubs affect

Had a bowl of floating flowers, so decided to add it in
and group them all a lil closer together.

 colored pencil affect.

Posterized affect!

That is all my I will show you this week,  I have more but 
will wait to show you next week................

Thanks for coming by.............
always great to hear from you!

I never thought about using the caps to put the little candles in. My favorite picture is #9. That would make a good image to transfer over to a needlepoint activity! Beautiful arrangements!
Love to you all, Susan

One of my favorite centerpieces that you have done. I love all the greens.
I am so anxious for the Fall season to start. I have not yet started to decorate but will soon. Our pumpkin patch is going crazy this year too. I can't wait to see your fall decor.

This looks so pretty! I need to get my fall decor up and will do it on Saturday while hubby is cutting our lawn. Hope you're having a nice day!
