Grocery Store Centerpieces

Real Simple

Martha Stewart

I wanted to share this with you for Thanksgiving and got too busy to post it, but really, this is a great idea for any occasion.
I know that we're all gonna be doing a great deal of cooking for the holidays {with office parties, dinner parties, cookie exchanges, etc.} and that is more than enough work. BUT, while you're at the grocery store, even if you told yourself the food was enough and you didn't need to decorate {gasp!!} ...pick up some produce and make some quick centerpieces! The first picture uses daffodils, limes, and kumquats. The second...cabbage!! {isn't it pretty?) And, the last {my FAVORITE!} used artichokes, pears, eggplant and flowers.
I hope these inspire you and get your creative juices flowing. You don't need to run out to the design store or the flower market for your decor...just head to the grocery store!
