I am a big fan of tea and when I was shopping in Target the other day I noticed a display of new tea tins across the top row. The colors were beautiful and the tea blends were even more enticing, so I picked up this fall blend with a twofold plan — drink some yummy tea and use the tin as a free decorate vase. What a bargain for 5.99.
These were all flowers from the yard and house plants. I combined my maiden hair fern with some variegated basil from the garden along with some green envy zinnias and a sagey-gray plant I had in one of the flower beds (name escapes me). I love the fallish combination of the green and orange.
And — the tea wasn’t half bad either. I usually like my tea strong with two bags, but this tea has some powerful cinnamon and cloves, so I think one bag would have sufficed. It had a really yummy fall blend. The great thing is I can keep trying their other blends and can collect more of the fabulous colors. I shot this while in Target.
Wouldn’t these make an adorable centerpiece for a wedding or bridal shower?The owl candleholder was from Homegoods last year and the twig coffee cups were from Z-gallerie a few years back.
