    1. Thank you, Poppy! There is always a great sunset out the dining room window. And if you close one eye, you can see the ocean.

    1. My 19 year old son brought it home from the Farmer's Market, he thought it was amazing and said it was the last one.

  15. How pretty! I love the idea of using vegetables and fruit as centerpieces, it really mixes things up and adds interest as a change from the usual flowers.

    As a fellow Southern Californian, are you as concerned with our lack of rain as I am ~ this constant warm, dry, weather is not good.

  17. Love this, a lot of my tablescapes I always get the most comments when I use veggies in my flower arrangements. I have to see if this cauliflower is at my local veggie stand. (I have to admit, it's not something I have ever been able to eat....so I pass it up. lol)
