After going through Martha Stewart's website looking at all of her handmade centerpieces and table settings, I was exhausted and took a small break to get my creative juices flowing.
They didn't flow very far, unfortunately!
Candles in cranberries is what I call this. And I made a note to buy new candles since these apparently haven't been straight in a very long time. I couldn't find any ribbon that I liked and I think it is very, very plain. Maybe I needed to make several and group them. This presented a problem since I don't have anything that comes close to matching.
On to try something else.
I drug out a box of old decorations that I knew just needed some tender loving care. Ok, I admit. I keep stuff. It's not hoarding, more of a pack rat thing. I come by it naturally, my Dad was the same way. But it's all in boxes and one day I'm going to either need it or find a way to use it. Like today.
Reminds me of a fairyland. I had fun and my table will now look beautiful with this in the center. I can't wait to see what the others came up with.
