It's not that I dont agree, I just didnt make it a priority to have a centerpiece at the dinner table.
Now that my children are grown, there is more time to spend expressing my creativity.
Here's one example, not in the kitchen, but in the front hallway from a couple of summers ago.
But in an effort to *keep it real*, I will share what is currently on the dining room table - a basket of wooden pears on a silver platter; on the kitchen table - a basket of white chrysanthemums.
Practicing true Hidden Art (aka Schaeffer) style this year, I have planted a row of mammoth sunflowers along the backside of the house. Just ran outside and took a *before* picture of the area. We'll see how they grow.
Briefly though, in individual posts, I want to highlight three separate sparks that helped light the dry wood of my lack-luster talents in the area of flower arranging
First, my mother.
Second, a neighbor.
Third, an employee.
Whoops! Make that four ~ because Mrs. Schaeffer contributed soundly to the planting, fertilizing, watering, warming, and general over all caring for my hidden talents ~ like the story from her high school years.
