a centerpiece created out of potted herbs in a ceramic bowl For a year-round centerpiece that pulls its weight in the kitchen, plant a large bowl with assorted herbs. Pick plants that have the same sun and water requirements, since they'll be roommates, so to speak. Pinch off a few leaves as you're cooking for a fresh-tasting boost of flavor to your dish. Great herbs to try include basil, thyme, rosemary, and parsley.
