Spring Citrus Centerpieces

My friend, Deanna, is completely gifted.  
She can elevate the simplest arrangement into the most stunning centerpiece! 
 Look how beautiful this is!  

I just love how simple slices of citrus become translucent as light passes through a clear, glass vase.

Here's a  trick that I learned from Ina Garten.
When arranging droopy flowers like these beautiful spring tulips,
secure the stems in a bouquet with a rubber band.
It will keep the flowers arranged perfectly.

I hope you are inspired to create a spring citrus centerpiece, too!

Join the fun!  I'm linking up with TidyMom!

  8. My daughter's favorite flower is tulips. We do the rubber band trick, too. But oh, your idea with the limes? That, my friend, ups the class quite a few notches. I love it!

    With joy,
