Cactus on the Kitchen Table!

I'm tired of winter ... and it isn't over.  I needed a big dose of bright colors, so I treated myself to some new dinnerware, which you'll see in time for all the tablescaping and dishing parties this week!  Right now, take a look at my new centerpiece for the kitchen table!

I seldom set a table without some little pig slipping around behind a coffee cup or tucked into a composed centerpiece!   This time, I decided to put a couple center stage ... filled with faux cactus.  Miss Phoebe has been real interested in cacti lately, and although she has a real one growing in a little pot at home, I didn't want to have to take care of real ones ... or deal with the stickers in her little fingers.  She will, of course, handle all these when she sees them.

I love my big candle hurricanes.  I fill the bottoms with different things and enjoy wrapping the simple white candles with ribbon or raffia to bring it all together!  This is burlap ribbon ... (Hope these qualify this post for the cloche party!!)

I'm sharing this post with Tabletop Tuesday and the cloche party on the same site ... so make sure you visit the parties and check out some of the other posts!  But, before you go ... look around my site!
