7 Centerpieces

Seven ways to brighten your table.
Artichoke Arrangement

With its multiple layers, the artichoke resembles a large tropical flower. This beautiful centerpiece serves a double-purpose: The day after the party, you can make the ingredients into a side dish.

What You Need:

Display artichokes artfully.

  • About 12 artichokes
  • Lemons
  • Eucalyptus leaves (available from florists)


1. Pile the artichokes pyramid-style in a shallow bowl.

2. Fill in with small lemons and sprigs of eucalyptus.

3. The artichokes should keep on the table for a couple of days. When you're finished with the arrangement, steam them and serve with lemon juice and better.
