Start with your centerpiece topiary or any large arrangement to “anchor” the look. Next set out your glass chimneys and tapers so that they equidistant and arranged evenly across the length of the table.
Next, add your low-level lights by adding your tea lights and your mint julep cups topped with ornaments.
Finally add your pinecones in the remaining “holes” of your arrangement and fill in any additional space with Rosemary clippings (cedar or magnolia work great too!)
Why do I love using Rosemary? The scent of course but as the old adage goes: Rosemary grows where strong women live, so I love to always have Rosemary around and I think it makes a fabulous gift too.
If you snip and clip your Rosemary, Cedar, or Magnolia – make sure to either use it the day of for entertaining or give it a good drink overnight in a bucket of water with just the base of your clipping submerged.
