IDEAS I LOVE PART II: the second of the three types of centerpieces that went with my last post focused on buttons. I was well ahead of the trend because this year a couple of floral supply companies are selling all kinds of colored buttons to do things with. But I taught the bride - in 2010 - to stack buttons on wire so we could sneak black into her flowers. The vase is lined with equisetum and filled with hydrangea. And I used "button mums" to supplement the real buttons! Loved it then and I still love the look now.
