So are your decorations all up
and are you all ready for the holidays?
What is left on your list
besides the last minute gift giving?
Are you entertaining friends or family?
I have the perfect centerpiece
for your holiday table
or in my case
entry table floral arrangement.
Here is what you need.
A vessel or container, floral foam,
winter greenery, pears or apples,
flowers (I didn't end up using the flowers)
and a central ornament
or what I used,
a white glittery dollar store house.
I soaked the floral foam in water
and put it into a plastic container.
I cut three bamboo skewers
the same size and placed
the glitter house on top.
I tested it for height and then removed it.
The glitter house was made
with Martha Stewart glitter and glue last year.
I found these little houses at
the dollar store
and glammed them up.
I used the box to catch the extra glitter.
You can see my post HERE.
I had purchased a few winter garlands
at Costco to use outside
and I had some greens left over.
I placed the greens into the floral foam.
it looks random now
but it will be beautiful when it is done.
I put the glitter house
back on it's stilts in the middle.
I then started to add the pears
into the arrangement.
Just poke a bamboo skewer
into the bottom and cut it to size.
It's starting to take shape!
With the pears in place,
I added some tiny pine cones to the mix.
I tried the white flowers
but it just didn't look right.
I filled in the bare spots with more greenery.
You could add some silver or gold ornaments
if you like or some ribbon.
I sprinkled some glittery snow on the top to finish it off.
All together it took me less than a half hour.
I think this is the most creative thing
I have done since we put the house up for sale!
It felt good to do a project just for fun!
And there you go...
The greens and the pears should last
past Christmas as long as I remember
to keep water in it!
