Tiny Treasures–Fabulous Centerpiece Ideas

Have you ever found yourself short of ideas when it comes to finding that perfect hostess gift? Anybody can bring a bottle of wine, or pick up some scented candles, but have you considered creating an adorable little centerpiece for your hostess?

Are you attending a lunch party with good friends? Consider creating a lovely little centerpiece in a recipe box. The picture to the left is a wonderful hostess gift I created using a recipe box and gorgeous fall flowers. The darling little arrangement makes the perfect thank you for having me gift and it’s so fun to create as well. And arrangements like this are perfect for so many occasions. A co-worker’s birthday, a thank you for a job well done, your secret santa, etc all are great candidates for one of these lovely little arrangements.

There are so many adorable things you can find at the craft store to create a flower arrangement in. From little copper pots to great glassware, you can find almost anything you can imagine that would work as a container. Even things that wouldn’t immediately come to mind, like the recipe box above can be used to create something unique. All it takes is a little water proof lining and some floral foam and you are ready to put together something very special. Does your hostess collect something that could also be used for making an arrangement…tea cups, mercury glass, etc? Tin boxes are fabulous for putting together dainty arrangements and if your hostess collects them that makes the gift all the more special. Consider checking out your local thrift stores as well for ideas. A great old sugar bowl flea market find would make a great vase for a kitchen hostess gift.

And if you are at a loss for ideas, just check out my videos. For just $4.95 each, I’ll take you step by step in creating something very special the next time you need a great gift idea.
