Alternative For Flowers For Tables

It's been a week a ran out of flowers. Every time I went to Safeway to buy my carnation flowers the bucket is empty. Of course, I love putting something on my tables, anything that can make the home alive and warm, anything that can accentuate my tables. Here's my simple solution. I like playing around my collections of big and small sizes of glasses like i have in the pictures as you could see it.The bottom one is a recycled glass from a candy filled jar.The tall one, I bought it at the Thrift Store for 99cents only.

Yesterday, when we arrived  home from the grocery, I had a hard time looking for something where I could put my orange fruit.I remember my big tall glass is empty.So,I went to my front yard and harvest my green unripe oranges and put it at the bottom of the glass. Then I placed the ripe oranges on top of the green unripe oranges which i will be using for  my tap  water in the glass pitcher later with ice.

It's simple, but it accentuate the table.It gives freshness around the dining area.Additional tip, for beautifying your table.You dont need to buy new things to do it. Those crystal candle holder and the candles were bought at the Thrift Stores. It's really cheap, doesn't hurt your pocket, that if you really want to do something at your home, and your budget is too tight.If you have no budget at all to buy, try to play around whatever is in your house, I know you can find one.

The wide big glass at the bottom, I placed it at my kitchen close to the wall, and it adds freshness too in my kitchen.

This is just some simple alternative.
