Blatent Rip-Off Alert!!!!!
The idea for this centerpiece came directly from a magazine. If my brain was functioning properly, I might be able to remember which magazine. But alas, I can't. If anyone remembers seeing this, please let me know where.
Edited to add that a few of my readers told me that I got the idea from the August 2008 issue of Everyday with Rachel Ray. If you want to see the inspiration picture you can click here. Thank you so much for helping me remember.
I love any idea that makes something beautiful out of things that I already have. In this case, some missmatched stemware, votive candles and flowers.
OK. OK. I bought the flowers. But if I wasn't living in the middle of a barren wasteland of dust and mud, I might have had some hydrangeas or mums growing in my garden.
Here's where I put my own spin on it. How about this version for a Mexican Fiesta?
Those are just scraps of ribbon and the candles came from the Dollar Spot at Target (75% off, of course).
This one is my favorite. Pumpkins, gourds and pinecones for fall.
Could this be any easier?
I've got a million variations in mind. What ideas do you have?
