Having guests over, and only have a couple of hours to set up? No need to panic or rush out for flowers.
You can actually create an interesting centerpiece by using whatever small collectibles are around your house. The key is to find a common theme or element to pull things together. In this particular setting, the common elements are the Oriental theme and blue color of the pottery.
As in all centerpieces:
Keep the balance in height and distance among the objects.
Make sure the items don’t block the view of your guests to make conversation easy.
Mixing other Oriental elements you have around the house, like figurines, will complement the blue and white ceramics.
Adding a table runner under the arrangement will enhance the centerpiece.
