I mentioned last week that I didn’t have time to put together a pretty centerpiece for our friends thanksgiving dinner.
Instead, I thought I’d throw together the centerpiece I wish I’d made last week THIS week so that I could join in Kim’s Dare to DIY party.
The acorns & nuts came from trees in the back yard, and everything else (candles, holders, etc) was already on hand.
The walnut place holders are my fav – I copied the idea from Martha (in the Nov issue of her mag). To split the walnuts justatinybit, I wedged a razor blade in the natural break between the two halves. Then just write each person’s name on a pretty little piece of paper and slip it in there. Easypeasy.
As much as I dig this set up, let me just say that as much as I like the candles & whatnot on the table, I think I appreciated a table topped with food & surrounded by friends a little more… And I’m looking forward to round #2 later this week!
