Romantic White Flowers in a Country Colander

I got the idea to put some white flowers in Mama's old aluminum colander from THIS POST at Kate's Place.   There is so much inspiration on Kate's blog, I could sit and read it for hours.

Although my arrangement doesn't look nearly as good as that one, I do kind of like it.  It has the contrasting themes of romantic white roses and a country "dinged" up colander. 

Beside it is a battery operated heart shaped candle that flickers just like a real candle, without the worries of open flames.  And you guessed it, also Mama's.

I haven't taken the time to figure out another style runner, so for now its Americana meets romance!

I didn't even take the tags of the flowers bought at Dollar General or use florist's foam!  Just bent the stems in a "u" shape and stuck them in.

Maybe I'll have time to do a better job of decorating soon, but for now, this is what's on the kitchen table at the farmhouse.

Today, I'm linking to NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY at Coastal Charm!  Look at all the wonderful decorating ideas over there!!!!
