Simple Summer Green

Making these natural green centerpiece displays are easy and fun, and great for creating last minute table scapes for summer time entertaining.  I keep lots of glass cylinders on hand in varying sizes.  You can pick these up at Home Goods for next to nothing.  A combo of at least three jars creates a balanced design.  Walk out your door and look at what's in the garden, or your neighbors. Consider the shape of the glass containers you're working with and snip away.  I love the long grasses for the tall cylinders.  Pick leaves that are fleshy.  Hostas come in so many varigated varieties you can't go wrong with an assortment of these.  Colored leaves like Dieffenbachia and Coleus work great too.   Add a minimum amount of water and arrange to your liking.
