Celebrating the Seasons

Centerpieces — Fresh from the Garden

A centerpiece doesn't get any easier. Corn, roses, and a container — that's all you need for this display.

  • Soak fresh, frozen, or canned corn in cool water about ten minutes to eliminate excess starch. Drain and rinse.
  • Fill a glass container with corn, red cherry tomatoes, or both.
  • Fill the container with water.
  • Insert freshly cut blooms. (Remove all foliage from flowers and cut stems long enough so that buds are about 1/2 inch above container/water.)
