Hello Hostas!

Karrie grows loads of Hostas in her garden ....

Green looks good, doesn't it?!!


This year she planted some Hostas in her planters for something different. (There is a bonus in planting perennials in your planter....plant them in the fall & they'll come up for you next year!)


Now....have you ever done this with Hostas?
For our garden party last week, Karrie touched on entertaining outdoors. She took hosta leaves and tied them around glass hurricanes....


So simple and fresh looking....everyone loved it!





How about hostas wrapped around a floral vase?
This was my favorite - in fact, I made sure that we took it into the store for the week. The lavender and the green hosta leaves look like they were made to be paired together!


How will you greet your hosta today?

rI love this idea! I'm going to save this one for wedding centerpiece options! Very showy and inexpensive!

We have some hostas in this yard, and they are neat and really do well if you leave them alone! My kind of plant. ;-)

I love what you did with the vase, the hostas, and the lavender. So pretty!

XO,

Sheila :-)

What a nice idea. Hostas have been on my garden list for a while now, perhaps I'll give them a try in the Spring

What great ideas! I think I'll plant some in a pot.

Hugs,
Donna

What a creative idea! I have huge hostas and can't wait to try this for a patio party when the heat and humidity subside here in St Lou!
