Take It Outside!

So much rain this Spring has left me yearning for sunshine, warm breezes, and outdoor entertaining! Thanks to Martha, there is plenty to inspire you to take it outdoors. Who else would have ever thought to tie the flower to the OUTSIDE of the vase?! Placed on a shallow dish with water keeps the flower fresh.

Tropical Zen or Hawaiian Luau comes to mind when I look at these leaf-wrapped votives.
Great way to light up the night. Hang jars, glass votives, punched tin cans, or tiny lanterns from the umbrella spokes.
The perfect light appetizer of cheese & crackers served on terra cotta saucers….I want to go to there!
