...your centerpieces can't be made up of three artichokes on their stalks?
Who Says
I love the simplicity of it...don't you?  Yet, it still makes a statement. 

And I just have to tell you that I have a soft spot for artichokes, as my family had fields and fields of them here in California before they sold them off.  One of my favorite, and fondest memories as a kid was riding the horses bareback through the artichoke fields.  Oh how I would love the opportunity to do that now!
