New Center Pieces

Fall chores include cleaning up the pond and pulling plants out to overwinter inside. As I was working I found myself regretting that the days of sitting beside the waterfall relaxing and watching the fish were pretty much over for the year. "AHA," I said, "Let's bring the pond inside!"

I had plenty of vases tucked away for our Romantic Roses Package. The nickle feeder fish I put in the pond last year had spawned at least 30 babies that seem to be thriving. The water lettuce and water hyacinth had to come inside. For $0.00 I have unusual and amusing center pieces.

I love seeing the fish play tag in the trailing roots.

That's what Works for me on Wednesday.


  1. This is a creative, fun centerpiece idea :) My husband just brought in the turtle from our pond for the winter. Isn't it amazing how many baby fish you get every year?!

  2. This is so adorable for a kids theme party too. I also saw martha's "Fish Soap in a Bag" that would work well with this as favors to take home. It's a gold fish within the soap in a clear bag, looking similar to your centerpieces. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and visit and browse a while.
