You can take a dough bowl from an empty vessel and turn it into a statement. It is very versatile and can be decorated with the changing seasons. In the spring and summer plants can be placed in this four feet long dough bowl to create a centerpiece that brings nature to the table. Make sure to place the individual plants into plastic freezer bags to protect the bowl from water damage. In the fall you can place pumpkins in the bowl, or pine cones. Use your imagination and create your own stunning display.
- I use five pots of Jasmine bought at Trader Joe’s to fill my four-foot long dough bowl.
- The pots are dropped into large freezer bags so that watering won’t harm the bowl.
- In the past, I’ve filled the dough bowl with pumpkins, pine cones, shells, ivy and other items.
“You could add any plant to the center, just make sure it’s one that’s a continuous bloomer so it lasts longer.”
