Cooking Up Something Different For A Spring Centerpiece

I love a centerpiece that grabs attention and gets a reaction – especially from my children. Whether you are having a large group for dinner or simply having a friend over for tea it is so easy and fun to create a little something different for the moment you share together.

Wheatgrass is grown in a 5-inch cast iron skillet that I picked up for a few dollars at a resale shop. Place soil and seeds in skillet, keep moist and in light. Check for moisture on bottom of skillet before placing directly on table.

The lid from a soup can is pulled back to reveal sprouting wheatgrass. To make this I pealed the lid back partially, cleaned can and removed the label, filled with soil and topped with grass seeds. You can expect to wait about one week until grass is a little over one inch in height - so plan in advance.

Wheatgrass looks great growing in anything – experiment if you like. I buy my seeds online at
