So, remember when I used this adorable centerpiece to showcase some precious little succulents? Remember how I was all, "At least I know that succulents are impossible to murder and they pretty much live forever!" Well, they died. I either have a black thumb or when I was transferring them to the lotus bowls I didn't include enough of the root. (Again, why can't my dad live next-door to help me with these things? The man is like the plant whisperer.)
In any case, the succulents died a slow and tragic death and I finally decided to throw away the wilted nubbins last week. However, I knew that I still wanted to keep the centerpiece out because it's my new favorite thing.
I decided that since the front of the duplex is overflowing with flowers (thanks to Hunky Fireman Landlord—not my own doing), I would try placing a few of the prettiest blooms inside each lotus bowl. (My other option was candy, and I'm home way too much now to allow myself easy access to a bunch of Rolos or M&Ms. You don't even understand.)
So, flowers it is! And although this version of the centerpiece is much, much more girly than the first one, Jay hasn't objected thus far. And I kind of like that after a few days I can just go out and snip a few more blooms as the other ones get wilted.
What would you place in these lotus bowls for a centerpiece? Any recommendations for "take three"? (Which I'm sure there will be. I tend to change things like this entirely too often. I tend to have a bit of OCD when it comes to decorating…just ask the shelf above the TV.)
