Centerpieces Created with Collections

A couple of weeks ago I told you about a luncheon put on by the Garden Club of Jackson where members used their collections to create centerpieces for the tables.

Today I’ll share a few more of the centerpiece creations that very talented garden club members shared for the day.

Here is an arrangement in which each object represents a collection, all related to the owner’s love of flowers and gardening…

vintage horticulture books used for research, Old Paris porcelain, Parian ware, old gardening tools, flower gathering baskets and even heirloom flowers…

  1. Every one is a beauty. Love the originality of the matchbooks. Great ice breaker. Have a great weekend!

      My friend was concerned that the matchbooks were not centerpiece material and then we discovered that John Grady Burns had included a matchbook collection in his book Collections and so we thought that she won the prize!

  2. Lovely…As soon as some of the flowers come in here I am going to be ready. I also like the matchbooks, but I love the white pieces with the grasses.

      And the grass is so easy to grow and makes such a splash. Have a great day!

      It was so much fun seeing what other members collect and how they chose to display!
