Americana Sunflower Centerpiece

I started out by doing a typical “Red White and Blue” centerpiece for the table . .

~ ~ but I thought for a minute ~~ and changed my mind ~~ oh, the mind is a dangerous thing!

Wanted to do something a bit different. . . so I scoured the house, looking for inspiration.

I found some inspiration in my laundry room ~~ go figure!

Placed the bowl and pitcher on a vintage blue and white tea towel.

Found the blue and white swirled bowl in Iowa when visiting about 30 years ago.

Added my Folk Art Uncle Sam Bunny to the centerpiece . .
