19th December: Making table decorations

I made some table centres for the first time today and am pretty pleased with the outcome.

My great friend Jen gave me a bushel of cuttings from her garden, I bought some lovely antique-effect dishes, some oasis, candles and artificial berries and that was pretty much it.

No doubt anyone who knows anything about flower arranging will tell me about the glaring faults but I am happy with them, despite them being on the large side!

I really enjoyed making them and would recommend it to anybody.
