Hope you all had a wonderful week.
It has been a hectic one for me of activities and traveling.
However, how can I complain about that!!???
While traveling with my hubby, I was able to meet up with two of my great friends
AND I finally met the uber talented Loi (Tone on Tone). He was so much fun to be with
and I look forward to “Adventures with Loi”
My hubby and I traveled back home late into the night
to make our granddaughter’s school program the next morning.
So well worth the lack of sleep!
I did something that a reader/blogger/friend suggested when I presented a similar centerpiece
and placed the smaller bowl inside the larger one to create a tiered planter.

“I am crazy about that pitcher. Another thing you could do is turn one of the bowls over
and let it be pedestal for the other.” Thanks Janette!
It looked like this:
Janette suggested that I invert the smaller bowl and use it as a pedestal
and placed the larger one on top. I invert items all the time and why did I not think of this!??!!
So I proceeded to do what she had suggested.
I started with a column/pedestal that I purchased a couple years ago
at the High Point Market.
Then inverted the bowl.
I placed Elmer’s Tack on the bottom of the bowl.
Placed the larger ironstone bowl on the top of the inverted smaller ironstone bowl.
The Elmer’s tack really secures it in place.
I love placing ivy in a beautiful vintage container, especially ironstone.
Love how the beautiful green ivy pops against the pretty shades of white ironstone.
This arrangement of the small bowl inverted to act as a pedestal reminds me of a
vintage punch bowl.
Now if I can only train this ivy into a great topiary like Loi so impeccably does,
however, I think I may need a greener thumb.
I love this look. . . . . and the “family” is happy too!
Have a great weekend! . . . I have some furniture moving on the agenda!
