Souper Thrifty Centerpiece

On a recent thrift store shopping trip I found this soup tureen set. 

I really like it just sitting on my server in the dining room most of the time but when I got some gorgeous hydrangeas for Mother's Day, I thought of another use for it.



Ta da! A centerpiece (with a few of my white lilacs) is born! I used a drinking glass nestled inside the tureen to keep the flowers close together.



Linking up with Debbiedoos and these other Linky Partays.

My hydrangeas are a passion too, check out my post. I think we have a lot in common:scrapping, cooking, photography, and our precious families. I friended with Google just to keep seeing more.
