  1. lori- your table is gorgeous. i love the simplicity of the dough bowl filled with flowers instead of using a vase.

  2. Lori, this is absolutely beautiful! I love how you displayed all your fresh flowers through out the dining room.. so so beautiful 🙂

  3. Any tips for keeping the flowers in the doughbowl from wilting? Lovely room.

    1. Thanks Barbara! I’ll repeat my reply to Margaret, who asked the same question: If I use flowers in the dough bowl as a centerpiece for a dinner, I either keep them there for the evening and then move them into a vase after the dinner or I let them dry in the bowl and use them as dried flowers. But I’m sure it is possible to rig up a hydration system in the bottom of the bowl with a shallow tray.

    Love all your tables, but this is just perfection! A question – how do you keep the flowers in the dough bowl fresh, as they don’t appear to be getting water from any source. Thanks.

    1. I don’t really. If I use flowers in the dough bowl as a centerpiece for a dinner, I either keep them there for the evening and then move them into a vase after the dinner or I let them dry in the bowl and use them as dried flowers.
