Easy, Economical Floral Centerpiece for Winter

How was your weekend?  
Mine was fast and furious!  
But it ended well with a fun trip to Nell Hill's!  
I took Friday off of work 
and woke up all ready to relax 
and wouldn't you know I got a text 
that there was a showing of the house  
scheduled for Saturday.  
The house was still in post Christmas state 
with some rooms kinda barren...  
I was shooting for the Tuesday 
Realtor Open House as my deadline, 
but it looked as if it had been moved up for me.  
So I got my rear in gear 
and started in on finishing up my 
"Refreshing" of the house.  
I figured that whatever I did would have 
to last until Tuesday 
because I wasn't redoing it.  
So, first on my list was the Entry Way.  
Last time I showed it to you 
the beautiful blue and white footbath 
from Nell Hill's was filled with Winter Greens and pears.  
In order to save time 
and the frustration of hunting 
for things in the storage area, 
I decided to create a new floral in the same bowl.  
I've shown you this same idea 
before with a tutorial HERE
It's fast and easy, economical, 
and it lasts a long time.  
I always love the way the yellow lemons 
look with the blue and white!
I didn't have to change anything else on the table!  
It should last way beyond Tuesday 
with just a bit of refreshing to the flowers.  
The half lemon can be replaced also 
or, if you cheat like me, 
you can just slice a little more off to refresh it. 
Entry way done now off to the other rooms 
before the showing!  

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

Classic look for a beautiful timeless look. I'm so glad I found your post at Wow Us Wednesday. This look will be wonderful for our dining room buffet. I needed some inspiration post Christmas. Linda
