Have I also mentioned that I don't entertain very much. The 2 parties I have had inside my home was Shae's baby blessing and 1 Friend Christmas Party. Decorating and entertaining are not my forte. I would love to do more, I just do not have the conviences to be able to pull it off.
For example, this is my Christmas tree. It has taken me 9 years just to get this little bit of decor for 1 tree. I am not fond of my tree, but what I do like is that it is a work in progress. Just as entertaining others is for me. I tell you this because I have a dream that one day, I will have collected so many wonderful items each year that my tree will be amazing! And one day, I would love to have wonderful parties at my home that people enjoy the food, friends and atmosphere.With the few things I do have, I knew that I could depend on the bright and intelligent brains around me to help me with the centerpiece of my table. The winner is: Ann! She was the closest one on the post and even did a follow up call to make sure I had some idea of what to do and how to do it! How nice is that? With her help, I went a little rustic with the garland, pine cones, a little berry and I added the candles. Nothing fancy, but it worked!
Thanks again to all of the comments. They were all lovely ideas and I would have done them all if I could, but I had limited time and resources! Bless you All! Ann, I have a special gift for you!
PS - Thank you to my dearest friend for allowing me to borrow her chairs. I only have 4 chairs!! How sad is that? Thank you again for the lovely chairs! You are the best!
