Easter or Spring Time Centerpiece....

A few years back, I saw this idea (can't for the life of me remember where), about using asparagus and tulips to make an Easter table centerpiece. I tried it and it was so simple, yet made such a pretty statement. I liked it so much, I made 2 extras and put them on each of the counters at our two businesses. It received so many comments. So, in hopes that Spring will soon show it's face here in New England, I am posting the how to's:

You Will Need:

A tall circular glass vase with straight lines. (the one I used was a clear glass cylinder about 8-10" tall)
A bunch of asparagus
A Ribbon
A bunch of tulips
A rubber band

Place the rubber band around the vase.
Cut all the asparagus so it is the same size. Slide each stem of asparagus under the rubber band continuing until the entire vase is covered with the asparagus.
Tie a pretty bow around to cover the rubber band.
Fill with tulips - and Voila! A beautiful spring time decoration.
It will last for a week or more.
