K.I.S.S. Centerpieces

July 6, 2009

Did you ever hear the expression “Keep It Simple Stupid”? Well I prefer to say “Keep It Simple Silly”, but that’s beside the point. I created these centerpieces using one (yes, that’s right, only one) gerbera daisy and a couple of tea lights! Did you ever think that you could actually make a centerpiece using just one flower? Of course, when you use less materials that means you must use more of your imagination. I think it’s the simplicity of these centerpieces that makes them spectacular.

For the first two centerpieces, I used the individual petals of one gerbera daisy to create graphic versions of the real thing. Or if you want, you can take one gerbera and cut the stem off at the base of the flower and put it in a wine glass along with a tea light for a fun individual place setting. Another idea is to use multiples in varying sizes and shapes for a unique tablescape that’s simple and stunning!
