Dumping the Flower Centerpiece!

What can go in the middle of a dining room table instead of the obvious bowl of flowers? I am always experimenting with other centerpiece ideas. Using an assymetrical design, a wire urn filled with preserved ferns is paired with interesting glass vessels. The multi-tiered decanter could be filled with different liquors or wines, and is very pretty with it's etched surface. Two matching antique compotes and a new large apothacary urn complete the collection for the tablescape. A pair of painted candlesticks add another dimension to the display. Antique tapestry runners anchor the items together. I am constantly searching magazines for new ideas, but inspiration is hard to find. If anyone has a great centerpiece idea, please email us!
