Simply choose a few yellow crocks and fill with
your house plants...it's time they get repotted anyway
they are looking a little pathetic!
Add in some faux yellow orchids if you
don't have a green thumb.
A simple homespun yellow dishtowel or runner will
as some additional color and texture.
Add some small yellow plates, fresh fruit on a cutting board,
fill the juice glasses with pineapple juice for a yellow colored drink!
Invite friends & family over for a light, yummy & healthy breakfast!

Lemon Lime Centerpiece
Fresh lemons and limes give this centerpiece a fresh spring look and smell.
Photo by Glenna J. Morton
We simply added 8 yellow mums and a few clippings of leather fern, for an arrangement that will last many days if wilted flowers are replaced or removed as needed.
• Bowl, platter, or tray
• 24 small lemons and limes (or enough for your container)
• 8-12 flowers
• 3 stems leather leaf, cut up
Arrange fruit in your container.
Next, cut the flower stems to about 3-6" long and insert between the fruit. Note: Ripening fruit can cause fresh flowers to wilt so be sure to add flowers only an hour or so before your party.
Clip 3 stems of leather leaf into shorter sprigs and insert between the fruit, around the rim of the bowl.
Tip: Flowers may last several hours without water. To make an arrangement last longer, fill the bottom of the bowl with water and cut flower stems long enough to reach down to the water. Or, use clear floral water tubes for each flower stem, inserting both a flower and a leaf sprig into the tube.
