Centerpiece Party at Funky Junk

Just gonna post some past centerpieces...for Donna's Party! 

 outside at a family Easter... 


                                                  A springy sewing day...lunch  



wild flowers...I use them all the time, can't beat 'em...




 Thanksgiving






 flowers from our tree for my "tree house"






                         a baby shower...


a country wedding...

a librarian's retirement...


 old mason jars...


A wedding shower...brown snuff bottles...

a retro  baby shower...




A January icy blue wedding....love the rock salt!

my bathroom centerpiece, lol

another wedding...the base are cardboard tubes, cement forms...the same used for the Thanksgiving centerpieces...and I just used them this week with brown lace paper on them...



I have a bunch more...but I've probably lost most of you by now...but the main idea is I decorate for lots of parties and I use what I have...a little differently each time...and I think adding a little vintage touch makes it substantial in some way... classy.

I did a really fun retirement party the other day and went to a great wedding, but didn't have my camera for either...I am slipping~

Lezlee-

You definitely have the gift of Hostessing! I love your table centerpieces.
The ones for the parties are so uniquely cool and vintage.
* I've copied your diaper full of toys for the baby shower...ssshhh!*

The others are pretty. I like the shutter with the twigs the best,
I'll take a cue from your RED SEAT IN THE BATHROOM!!!! no kidding I have a red seat in my bathroom too! ALMOST IDENTICAL *minus the center piece*

OH! and are those Azaleas in the TREE HOUSE? very pretty!!!

I miss you when you aren't here.
LOL

Lezlee,
So glad I kept looking at Donna's SNL! I love all your displays. So creative and just darn cute!
It has been a sad time at my house. Darrell my husband passed away on Dec. 23, 2010. I am in Australia with daughter, husband and wonderful grandson. I have been here for 4 weeks. I will leave in another week. Hope to start posting again.
smiles, tears, love,
alice

Such pretty centerpieces! I especially like those that use the old mason jars. I remember the centerpiece on the table in your "tree house". That is when I first discovered your blog and I was hooked. Hope things are going well for your moma.

So many fun ideas Lezlee! I saw the theme for SNS and thought "right now my centerpiece is a painting drop cloth" ;) Good idea to post all your past centerpieces. Fun to see them all at once...great for inspiration! Chat soon, Laurel

Lovely centerpieces, Lezlee! I love the way you use all the flowers with the vintage...my favorites are the one in your tree house, and the outdoor arrangement with the wisteria...beautiful!

Coleen's Corner said...

I swear, you have the most beautiful arrangements anywhere and everywhere! Love how you can coordinate colors - those flowers on the red stool made me go, aaaahhhh! Everything you do would take me at least a month - you make it look so easy!

Tete said...

I get some of the comments in my email, too, but never yours. I don't get many that way at all, though.
I don't know anything about how to do that.

Jenn Erickson said...

They're wonderful Lezlee! And each one is more dazzling and creative than the last. Hard to pick a favorite, but I think I fell in the love the most with the outside tablescape with the window frame and watering can!

Hazel said...

They are all very nice. I think my favorite is the easter egg piece. You do nice work.

Beautiful. I love what flowers - even the simplest ones - can do for a table or room or your spirits. I adore wildflowers the most!

Dreama said...

I need those black chairs with the red cushions in your "tree house". They would go great with outside "love seat"!!!

Hello I really like your centerpieces, I have a question on the centerpiece that you made for a wedding, it has a black,and white cardboard cements with candle in the center of the centerpieces. My question is how did you make the pink letters on that centerpieces? Thanks for your help.
