A Scape with a Red Flower

It isn't always necessary to play around with serious flower decorations to garner attention. Bringing a simple flower arrangement to the table is easy and can be very attractive at times. 

Garden bloomed flowers or  even wild flowers of bright colors can be stunning and really stand out rather than pastel displays.

In tropical or in hot countries like ours, because of the the light being so intense, flowers with strong colors are used in flower arrangements

I have used a single stem red bird of paradise flower to adorn this Spaghetti table for two. Hope you like my Spaghetti table,  Do enjoy preparing the spagatti too, The recipe is given below... Thank you all..:):)

                                                                Salt and pepper shakers

An  easy  Spaghetti recipe for you--

Boil the spaghetti.

Tomato's---4(Boil for 3 minute's and remove the skin.cut the tomato's and squeeze out the water)
