Quick Centerpiece Idea {from the yard}

Need a quick centerpiece?  If you have flowering shrubs in your yard, grab a pair of scissors!  Right now, my Hypercium {St. John’s Wort} shrubs are in full bloom.  With just a handful of branches and a few added strands of vinca vine, I made this centerpiece in no time.

Other great shrubs and plants that will work:  lilac shrubs, hydrangeas, viburnum, Japanese rose shrubs and peonies….and don’t forget to use a colorful vase!

  1. Those are beautiful!!!! And a great tip. I always look in the yard for flowers, leaves and other botanical-ish things before taking a trip to the florist. When you’re on a budget, it’s a great option!!! I’ve styled many photo and TV sets with plants in the yard – you can always find something beautiful if you look. Your St John’s Wort is GORGEOUS. Thanks for the pix.
