Pink Ribbon Centerpiece – Version 2

Pink Ribbon Centerpiece   Version 2

We did a local news segment yesterday on pink party ideas for National Breast Cancer Awareness month and one of the ideas I shared was the Pink Ribbon Trio centerpiece posted earlier this month.

I wanted to try something a little different with it this time and was excited about the results, so we took a few pictures last night to share with you…

Pink Ribbon Centerpiece   Version 2

Instead of pink hydrangea and pink roses, a little tropical flair was incorporated with pink protea and papyrus leaves, which is the cool almost palm-tree-looking greenery pictured here. It’s really inexpensive too – I paid $3.50 for a bunch of 5, and they’re huge! Check out the cool view from the top:

Amazing that they come like this naturally – it almost looks like something that was created by a floral artist…

Fluffy white chynna mums and pink roses were also used… I wanted to keep a few roses in the arrangements to help coordinate this centerpiece with the Pink Ribbon Tree centerpiece, which was also featured yesterday as part of the Pink Dessert Buffet. (I tried a few new things there too – more on that later!)

Overall, this is just a little demonstration of how versatile this centerpiece is and I want to encourage you to get creative with it and make it your own – both from the pattern of the scrapbook papers to the types of flowers used.

If you’re throwing a pink party to show your support for a loved one battling breast cancer or to celebrating with them after they’ve beaten it, it’s a great idea to try to incorporate their favorite types/style of flowers (if they come in shades of pink or white) and really personalize it especially for them.

Absolutely gorgeous! We had those palm-looking plants in our last backyard and I have always loved them! Great contrast with the gorgeous pink & white flowers!

I have a zillion papyrus in my yard….I have hated them until now. Love what you did with them in a centerpiece. Now I know what to do with them!
