Herbs?… or “Erbs?” No matter how you say it, I call them little green fluffs of love which make me very happy.
I have them growing virtually everywhere. I know y’all have seen my monstrous rosemary “tree” in my front flower bed
which has given me years and years of herbaceous goodness.
I love placing herbs within the flower beds. I also like to put them in small pots all around the house and on the porches, too.
Recently, I received a box-o-goodies from David Tutera’s Casual Elegance Collection.

Have you heard of this?
His products are sold at JoAnn’s Craft Stores and major craft stores – and I gotta tell you… I LOVE them!
The Casual Elegance Collection is sold in the bridal section, and was created with weddings in mind, but the casual and rustic
elegance of these products allows you to use them in so many creative ways. I went absolutely goo-goo when I opened the box.
Mini berry boxes and chalkboard stakes and burlap ribbon and paper cut-out napkin rings and….oh my! It kept coming and coming.
It was the gift box that just kept giving!
So what did I do with all of the crafty goodness?
Utensil Caddy Herb Garden…. of course! 🙂
Me being the daughter of the hoarder that I am, could NOT let this cute Utensil Caddy slip thru my hands at Goodwill.
$2.oo later, it was coming home with me. TWO BUCKEROOOOS!!!
Because there were no drainage holes, I added packing peanuts to the bottom of each caddy opening, then added some
potting soil. I planted rosemary, thyme and basil. Three of my faves.
Then, I simply wrapped the caddy with some David Tutera Burlap Ribbon. I added a dab of hot glue on the back of the ribbon
to hold it in place.
Next, I snipped a few of the mini DT Burlap Flowers with Button Centers from the bouquet provided. These little gems are just adorable!
I left enough of the stem so that I could simply stick them into the burlap fabric. Easy-peasy!
Next, I took a sharpie and using these cute David Tutera tags, I wrote “herbs.” That’s herbs with an “h” for me.
Look how cute when the the tag is added…
This same idea could be adapted for a centerpiece for a wedding, a reunion or maybe an anniversary party.
David offers these fabulous printed, double-sided number cards that would be great for any function where seating is assigned.
I used the DT Chalkboard stakes in the small and large sizes to mark my herbs, and also to create a cute “herbs” sign.
I went just a little crazy with the burlap flowers and tags.
I created this cute Terrarium using a glass candleholder –
…and finally – I used another of the larger Chalkboard Stakes in my Staffordshire Tureen –
The last two pics are sneaky-peaky’s of my Summer Home Tour coming on Friday.
Speaking of… have you been following the Showcase of Homes and visiting all of the
great blogs and touring these amazing homes?
Here is the schedule if you missed any of them.
Please keep David Tutera’s Casual Elegance Collection in mind for your next event. And even if you do not have a large social gathering
planned in the future, look at the cute ways I was able to use his products. I can’t wait to share the rest of the goody box with you soon.
