February Centerpiece Party!

Pin It Now!

Are you ready for a PARTY?  Let's get it started!  Here's my February centerpiece...I kept it very simple. I used my thrift-store pedestal bowl which I filled with a small rose plant from Trader Joe's.  I simply covered the ugly plastic pot with some moss. (update:  the plastic pot the rose is in, the bowl is ceramic)
Then I added crystal candlesticks to give it that romantic look. I also used the vintage runner and placemats that I showed you yesterday.I know it looks like my blue home is turning into a pink one but it's not.  I just got into the Valentine's Day spirit!  The blue will be back!
If you would like to join in on the centerpiece party please sign up with Mr. Linky below after you have posted your centerpiece on your blog. Please be sure to link to your specific centerpiece post, don't just link to your blog. That way, months from now, someone can click on the link below and go directly to the correct post. I'm looking forward to seeing all the February centerpieces.

Update: this photo below is from Marcy, one of my readers that doesn't have a blog but would like to join in. Here's what she had to say: We are having our best friends over for dinner on Feb. 14th to celebrate - I made personalized drink coolers for each of the girls ~ they are covered in animal print & marabou feathers and I added the bottles of Bitch an Australian wine to top it all off!

Thank you Marcy! I'm glad you joined in!

Hello Cindy,

I join in.....! Great idea your CenterPieceParty. I don't know exactly what it is but I took the liberty to join in. I hope you don't mind because I'm from Amsterdam, The Netherlands instead of America.

Your centerpiece is great!

Morning Cindy! Well, it's "Beautiful Simplicity"!!! (how's that title!lol) Very pretty and that is the beauty of your home; any color looks gorgeous with all the white and crystal so you can change color schemes with very few purchases!!! Happy Valentines Day if I don't get back here!!! Sincerely, Jeannette

What a wonderfully simple centerpiece. The flowers placed in the pedestal are too gorgeous and the moss is the perfect accent.

Isn't February wonderful for all of us romantics? I linked the heart centerpiece I have in my header. It is such a simple arrangement, but expresses my style so well. I look forward to visiting your other links. You always have an amazing and creative group of friends gathered here.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Hey, Cindy, wish you could have been at Blissdom too. It was a lot of fun! Pretty centerpiece, btw!

LOL, I am tall, 5'8", but you're almost as tall as me. I did have on boots, so that made me close to 6'. And those girls were pretty short too, most of them. I'm used to being the tallest girl most of the time.

You didn't use too much pink. A hint is nice. The linen's are gorgeous.

I just don't get an all pink and white house, especially when there are men living there.

It's so much fun looking at all of the centerpieces.

Kathy said...

My centerpiece is really just a bowl of tangerines, but that is actually what is expected for a Chinese New Year's celebration. Since the Chinese New Year is generally celebrated in February I took a little creative license here. Hope that's o.k. This is too fun. Kathy

Joy said...

Wow, I love those colors you used and the candle sticks are so pretty! Can't wait to check out the other pages as well. Happy Valentines Day!
