Just lovely!

A beautiful centerpiece like this one I found on Country Living is SO simple and can easily be altered for any occassion!  I love the fact the glass vase is something that can be used over and over again.  And who could complain about having to browse through ALL KINDS of ribbons? Online-ribbons shops are an amazing source to find that perfect vase wrapper.

I absolutely love this ribbon found here.  If you're ever thinking of buying fairly long pieces of specialty ribbon(more than a yard or two), your best bet is to shop online.  Especially if you're planning to create your own centerpieces or chair ribbons that require a decent amount.  The prices tend to be much better, especially when buying in bulk. 

Another idea? If you're throwing an early evening baby/bridal shower or even a simple gathering with a few friends, replace the flowers for a single tea candle! Wrap the bottom of the vase with a single layer of sheer ribbon and the glow of the candle through the ribbon will create a serene and elegant ambiance for your party.  

Now wouldn't a few of these look adorable with a candle and some ribbon? Perfect for that garden party, not only are these flower-pot shaped vases super affordable and versatile, but they will last you forever! 

Now that's what I call a Piece of Cake!
