I was having my in-laws over for dinner last Thursday night and I needed a quick autumn centerpiece that didn't take up too much room on the table. I already had everything for this.......maybe you do too!
You may remember this little pewter tray from when I used it for THIS project, and that I picked it up at the thrift store for a dollar. The leaves are clipped from an old garland. The scatter gems are from last years Thanksgiving table and the candle from my candle cabinet. In case you didn't know, I'm a candle freak and rarely a day goes by when I don't have a candle or 4 burning...so yes, I have a cabinet that I keep all my candleness in!
You don't need a tutorial on this, but I'm messin with my camera and I wanna do a photo tutorial, so just let me, o.k?
Not too shabby for quick and free.
I tend to favor smaller centerpieces that are attractive, but leave more room on the table for pretty dishes and linens. Some people love big centerpieces that make a big statement.
What is your preference?
