“Don’t have fresh flowers at the moment? No worries. Style your table with this absolutely lovely and well-priced Ruffle Bowl from Crate and Barrel. It can be used for decorative purposes as is, or filled with colorful items or fresh fruit. It’s also a striking serving piece for pasta or salad. This bowl is so useful and so beautiful that I want one for myself.”

rinfret-centerpieces“We love how a colorful urn adds a bit of whimsy to a dining table. Mixed with a traditional or modern tablescape, it’s the perfect addition. Use white flowers for a classic look or add height to a table with a pop of pink cherry blossoms. You won’t find our dinner party table set without at least one ginger jar!”
