My Sister Wanted a Floral Arrangement for her Birthday…

My sister has a beautiful new dining room set.

It is a formal dining room…with gorgeous detailed chairs…and upholstered seats.

The dining room table has a beautiful “real” inlaid pattern…awesome…

…..made by one of the few “hand made” furniture manufacturers left in the U.S.

So, it is only befitting that she have a beautiful centerpiece…

I had a hard time finding the perfect planter…but I found this decorative covered container…
She can use it in it’s original state when she tires of the arrangement.

She sent me a piece of fabric from which to draw inspiration.

I think it is a great match.

I gathered beautiful quality silks…
