Spring and Easter Vignettes

I have my dining room table centerpiece ready for Spring. A hurricane glass candle holder that I purchased years and years ago (on sale) surrounded by wreaths.





I love the magnolia blossoms of the wreath especially the berries. 

Did you know the center cone-like part of the blossom is called a receptacle? 

The stamens and pistils are attached to the receptacle




There are actually two wreaths surrounding the hurricane. The magnolia wreath is easy to see but there is an inner wreath of gardenias. They were a favorite of mine years ago and I had a few live gardenias plants. I wasn't very good at caring for them, they are susceptible to several diseases and pests. They do have such a sweet smell. 




Here are pics of my dining room table from the past.
