{ Home Decor } Tea Tin + Flowers = Unique Centerpiece

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.
