centrepiece of the month june


for junes centre piece of the month - as always hosted by the lovely janelle from talk of tomatoes - i did something very easy and quick that still makes an impression on the table. a big glass bowl that i use to make a trifle is used as a vase for refreshing-green ivy and vibrant orchids.


the ivy is from the garden - and these orchids can be found in large bunches in asian- or chinese stores for about 5 swiss francs (3 US dollars). make sure you dont put too much water in the bowl, as you dont want your flowers to drown. just enough so you can dip the flower's and ivy's stem into the water.


of course you could use any kind of bowl or large vase for this centre piece. if you cant find orchids, simply use roses in full bloom, clematis work well or large heads of flowering lillies make a great appearance, too.
