Easy-Peasy Centerpieces/Take 1


Hello, dear friends.  Are you having a good weekend?  The Mister and I have been running around taking care of some last-minute details before the holidays.  Tomorrow we look forward to meeting some friends for a holiday lunch.  

In an attempt to temper my online shopping addiction, I have been spending more time on Pinterest.  It's been a while since I have indulged my appetite for some good old fashion eye candy.

I ran into my neighbor and partner-in-crime, Kathy, at the grocery store.  I found her looking aimlessly at flowers.  She said that she was trying to channel some divine inspiration for some centerpieces for her Christmas table.  She's hosting 17, so she needs a few.  I told her that Pinterest and I were back to being a couple again, and that I found a treasure trove of great ideas.  

And then it hit me.  Why not do a post?  I found so many it turned into two posts.

As with all the beauty and creativity found on this blog, not an ounce of it came from me.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  1. I have to admit that I don’t do centerpieces because I need room for the food, glorious food! Definitely have tapers, napkin rings, Christmas Crackers and a treat.

  2. Love so many of these because they are simple rather than formal. Perfection.

  11. 482 year old secret to surviving SHTF

    What if I told you that NASA rediscovered a superfood that's been lost to history for the past 482 years?

    It's packed with more nutrients than any other food out there and last even longer than pemmican.

    In fact, it's so easy to store and cheap to make, you might never need another emergency food.
