Centerpiece


I received this beautiful centerpiece from Laura and Aaron for my birthday. When they gave it to me at the end of November, it had pine boughs, pine cones and a red candle in it for Christmas. The nice thing about this, is that it can be changed for every season.
Yesterday Laura put in this fake snow, leaves and a white candle for a winter look. I'm looking forward to seeing what different looks it can have throughout the year.
Thanks Laura - I love it!

I remembered seeing it on your table at Christmas and thought it was pretty. It now has a nice January look. I wonder what you will put in it for Valentine's Day?

That is so beautiful, I've never seen one like that. Now I'm obsessing that I need one too! You have to take a picture and post it when you change it out again!

Very cool! I think about Laura everytime I drive by her shop. Someday I'll have to stop and buy something :)

Kim said...

What a cool gift idea! Hope you'll share with us all its different looks!

One of these days I will once again have a dining table on which to put a centerpiece. Meanwhile I whip out a tablecloth, which hides a multitude of sins -- or in this case a multitude of plastic, as in plastic folding table :-)

I wish I could keep my table clean enough for a centerpiece. LOL! Looks great!

That is very cool. I'm not good at decorating with stuff like that. I'm not really good at flower arranging either. I think I'm too much of a perfectionist and fuss at it for too long.
