Every occasion needs a centerpiece or several. So for the shower I decide to go Eco once again. Since it’s a Victorian Tea, I was off to the thrift shop again to purchase inexpensive tea cups and saucers. They needed to be suitable for a floral arrangement and also pretty enough to give away.
You have to love Johnson Brothers. They have many designs but styles are the same. I was able to purchase 12 teacups and saucers with similar floral decals but the same style. I paid anywhere from 25 cents to 1 dollar a piece. I also purchased 3 green oasis blocks. I spent one afternoon carving the oasis to fit the cups.
Friends donated many flower varieties. I picked all the flowers 4 days before the party. They sat in buckets conditioning for 24 hours. Next came the assembly 3 days before. Stay tuned.
