Star Spangled Centerpiece Tutorial

 As I was working around the house this morning it dawned me I should change up the centerpiece on the kitchen table. Since I have
quite a collection of dough bowls I turned to one of those for my inspiration.
I gathered a couple of geranium bushes and added them to the dough bowl. Pretty simple so far huh?

Then I popped in a few of the small flags, I recall purchasing them at Walmart quite a while back. If your Walmart is out you might try the Dollar General or the Dollar Tree stores.
I chose to just lie the geranium bushes in the base of the dough bowl, sticking the flags into the thickness of the bushes. I could have added a bit of moss, but really I didn't see the need for it, the fullness of the bushes cover the inside of the dough bowl just fine.


The only thing missing is a large glass of lemonade, some homemade vanilla ice cream. Oh my I could go on and on. Do you have big plans for the 4th of July weekend?
As always thanks so much for stopping in and leaving your sweet comments.

Very Pretty! Simple but makes a big statement. No plans yet - waiting to hear what someone else is going to do.

I did the same thing! Made July 4th center piece but it's on the front porch. Yours is gorgeous. I love Geraniums with anything and those work perfectly. Thank you for the idea. I must get out and see what I have. I haven't even opened my container of 4th goodies yet!
LOVELY Lynne!!
Big hugs...take care of yourself my friend!

It looks beautiful, Lynne. I love your dough bowl, and the geraniums, spilling over the sides, and flags standing in the air, make a beautiful combination. Have a great holiday weekend. I keep you in my prayers. laurie
