Kitchen table centerpiece ~

I thought it would be fun to put together a new centerpiece for the kitchen table, lately I have been very drawn to ornamental arrangements containing fruit and vegetables, for this arrangement I decided to focus on artichokes.

I love using artichokes, they are so interesting, And hydrangeas look good with almost everything.

So, I put it all together in a basket and for my amusement added a little ant...and this is how it looks:

I think I like it!

Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a marvelous day.

  1. Hi Adrienne! Oh, your floral arrangement turned out so pretty! I love the artichokes and hydrangeas in there. You did so well. I have meant to tell you that I copied your recipe for your aunt's oatmeal cookies and made them! They were delicious! I will have a post about them, giving you the credit, of course, and I'll come and tell you when I do. Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,

    1. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed them...I think they are delicious too!

  2. Adrienne, I love it. You have such style and I love that you added that little old ant. I was cleaning out cupboards the other day and found a stash of little ants that I have as well. What a cute use for one of them..Happy Tuesday..Judy

    1. Wouldn't they look cute in a row walking across a kitchen window sill. If you end up using them someday please post it so I can see!

    2. I love the square shaped basket all done up so pretty. I'd love to make one for my kitchen...such an inspiration.

  3. I LOVE your new centerpiece. And that ant is just the touch it needed to make me smile!

  4. The ant is the perfect touch. A very lovely fresh-looking centerpiece.
