This flower centerpiece is super easy – no flower arranging skills required! The main idea is to keep the crisp clean look of white and green. The kind of flowers you use is totally up to you. Since the trees are flowering here, spring blossoms were my first choice. If blossom time is already over in your area, lilacs, tulips, roses, or phlox would make excellent substitutes.
Vanilla is probably my favorite spice and it is also the most expensive after saffron. It adds depth of flavor to so many things. Added to chocolate it makes the chocolate more chocolatey and you just can’t beat that. That being said, it can be fairly pricey, especially at the rate I go through it. So, today I’m going to tell you about two strategies I’ve come up with to keep the cost down.
This simple recipe is what I have been using for the past few years and it has been working great. When we were living in Calgary last year, it was more convenient to buy a bottle of natural cleaner from the grocery store. It turned out to be a waste of time. More often than not they seem to leave a bit of a residue. That’s why I like this cleaner so much, it’s effective and it costs less than a dollar to make.
This centerpiece came about entirely by accident. I am not the most organized when we entertain, my whole focus seems to revolve around the food, and more often than not I can’t even remember to put napkins on the table.
