It has been raining for 2 days and the rain pouring down
has destroyed almost al flowers in the garden.
I wanted to do a tablescape in yellow with the flowers of my Santolina,
but they are all become ugly and unusable.
well, I will have to wait until next year :)
Fortunately the lavender is much more water resistant
and the oleander had a lot of buds,
so I found some to use for this weeks Centerpiece Wednesday!
Centerpiece Wednesday -
Lilac Lavender and White Oleander
I used a white terrine from a set my mother gave me, to place the flowers.
remember that the oleander is very poisonous so wash your hands very carefully after
managing the flowers and the leaves.
that goes for the terrine as well, high heat in the dishwasher!
the tablecloth comes from Coin - Verona and is old. the colours are faded after all
the washing during the years.
the green napkins comes from my hubby's grandmother, Reneèe
when she unfortunately passed away 2 years ago, I inherited all her dinnerware and all household linen. She had some many beautiful things, from these "country" napkins to very fine
small linen and lace napkins.
the blue plates are a clearance sale at IKEA.
also the flatware is a clearance sale in a shop that closed down.
glasses Svalka from IKEA.
don't forget to stop by at karin's to see what she managed to do,
with an old fire station!!!
and to visit all other wednesday bloggers!!
