Decorative and Fun Ideas
Evergreen alpines and other drought-tolerant plants are ideal for table displays. You can also try low-growing herbs, such as thyme, or for a more seasonal design, plant bulbs and spring flowers. For the best overall effect, use containers that complement your garden furniture and tableware.
Cup and Saucer Centerpiece
