The other night, some friends called and wanted to drop over. I was making a big dish of lasagne anyway, so I said, “Sure, Come on over!” Normally, when I have guests visit, even the closest of friends, I love to decorate the table with fresh cut flowers. However, I really didn’t have anything appropriate to place on the table. Because I didn’t have much time, and in lieu of trekking to the store to get some pretty bulbs, I suddenly had an idea — why not decorate the table with a centerpiece of fresh herbs!?
So I cleaned up a terra cotta pot with fresh basil and placed it in the middle of the table surrounded by white tea candles.
My last minute idea turned out to be a big hit. Not to mention, the wonderful aroma which mixed quite well with the big dish of lasagne! So I’d say my herb centerpiece idea is a keeper!
