Table Ideas of March

One of my daughters recently hosted friends for dinner. Her table centerpiece warrants publishing.

The foundation of the largest arrangement are three white hyacinth blossoms, augmented with golden solidago and hypericum berries. 
In the smaller white porcelain containers are mini lime-green plants that I believe to be baby tears (Soleirolia soleiroli).

Several elements give this arrangement appeal.  First, the color scheme of the greige-and-white striped runner on the table is a nice backdrop, in the room painted Benjamin Moore's Museum Piece gray. Second, the yellow-green foliage echoes the color of the ferns on the sideboard. Finally, the white bisque square vases combined with the round bisque tea light holders add interest.
All that noted, I am sure you can figure out what I think is the best part of this display!
p.s.  My other daughter has the same aesthetic, and she decorated her mantel in an eerily similar manner. As the saying goes, great minds think alike. (She used air plants in the smaller containers.)
