Craftiness and creativity of the rustic, country, folksy kind... from our home to yours.

A girl's got a right to change her mind...

...many, many times about her centerpieces, right? Well, my goodness! I think I have finally decided on what I want, for sure - for sure, this time. As much as I think the paper flowers on the branch is a totally cute centerpiece, I think the paper flowers sort of make me cringe, too. But, I am very certain (for the last time, let's hope) that what I'd like to do now is wildflowers. Nothing fancy, just a small bunch of wildflowers (hopefully from my Mom's garden, if not from nearby pastures), tied with twine, and placed in the quart and pint canning jars, that we already have at my folk's home (thanks again ladies for getting those for us!). And around this wildflower display would be a couple/few jelly jars with lavender votives and some stones haphazardly placed along the table. Keep in mind the tables are rectangular, so I'm think 2 or 3 of these displays on each table. Simple and budget friendly! Here are some photos that totally inspire me on this wavelength:
