So this is an arrangement made from mostly Dollar Tree stems and some pieces I had at home. I am starting with the formal look using an antique silver vase from my stash and making a centerpiece with an Autumn bouquet.
These are the stems-floral,feather,reeds+more
I actually stuffed newspaper into the vase before adding and arranging the stems. I also had leaves, pussywillows, cattails and some other "filler", but the vase was pretty large. See photo below:
See the large open bottom that I had to fill!
Next it's time to set the table and make everything festive!!!

See next photo:
It really is a large arrangement-dramatic!!!
Well, now that I didn't need the fancy arrangement anymore, I decided to move it to my kitchen area so I could enjoy without walking into the dining room. So I found a neat basket (you know me!)...take a look...
Add a few candles, sentimentals, twigs..done!
For the last look, I took it all apart...Yep...started over with-yes, another basket! This idea is more for a sit down meal where you want to look across the table at others. It still came out fairly tall, so I made it more of a casual brunchy type arrangement. Let's see what I did...
Yes still all of the same doodads and stems!!
So I wanted to get this posted and show you how you can make one bunch of stems work for different settings. Still working on my photos and my new laptop, so bear with me...Next up-Christmas!!! Thank you!
