centerpiece, check


Just a quick post today, it's baking day.  I wanted to show you the centerpiece I put together from the things I gathered together yesterday. 
 I started off with a scrap of brown burlap that I topped with an off white piece that I frayed the ends of just slightly.

Then I placed the two largest elements, the rooster and the white candle hurricane on the tray on opposite ends.  (To make the candle hurricane I just put the white candle in the center of the vase and started layering the lentil beans, split pea beans and popcorn.)

I added the framed thankful phrase to balance out the arrangement.

Then I just started adding things all the way around so that no matter where you sit the centerpiece looks pretty.

I picked a few of the last roses of the season for the owl vase for demonstration purposes but will replace them with fresh sunflowers or daisies on Wednesday.

That's it.  Easy, peasy centerpiece.

Pretty from any side.

I added a couple of glass vessels with tea lights to either side just to add a little extra sparkle to the table.  I think when I move this over to the dining room table and place it on top of a pretty autumn tablecloth and burlap runner it will be the perfect touch to our thanksgiving meal.

Centerpiece, check.  Now back to my to do list...
