But one new thing that I just love and wanted to share with you is the floral centerpiece for our dinner table last Saturday night. One of Hubby's pet peeves is looking/talking through or around large centerpieces so I searched the Internet for something floral and low. Here's what I found in Google images that grabbed me ...
I went on the hunt for a rectangular vessel and found two of them on a clearance rack at my grocery store! They were $3.99 each -- one is burgundy (perfect for the holidays) and the other is olive green -- and they measure about 4-1/2" x 9". I really wanted ivory colored roses, but the day of our dinner party, there was a special on red roses for $8.88 a dozen that I couldn't pass up. I had picked up a package of oasis that I could soak for fresh flowers and I decided to pass on tying a ribbon around the pot, even though I do like the way it looks.
I think these rectangular flower pots would look good with all different types of blooms in them. Wouldn't sunflowers be amazing? Can't wait to use the burgundy one for holiday get togethers!
Just wanted to mention a movie we rented that is a heartwarming tear jerker based on a true story. If you like animal stories, try "Hachi: A Dog's Tale," starring Richard Gere, Joan Allen and Jason Alexander. I remember reading in the newspaper about this dog that would meet his master at the train station every day after work. When the man dies, the dog still goes there every day and waits for him. I cried like a baby through this wonderful movie.
