Do you ever just get tired of what you have, and suddenly, everything you're doing has to stop so you can attend to the centerpiece emergency? That's kind of how this was.
My current centerpiece had changed several times since my Christmas setup, and I'd never been really happy with it. It just didn't "work." (And the picture is blurry, which just adds to the sadness of the whole situation.)
Totally blah, totally uninspired.
I grabbed a few jars and put them in a basket I'm not using.
But it still looked weird.
I added our "piggy bank" jars where we save for specific things that we don't want to take out of the household fund.
I liked having the basket totally full of jars, but I was still far from satisfied.
Nothing about that runner and basket were working together, so I removed the runner.
Definitely getting warmer.
I grabbed a fabric swatch that I pulled out of a (hideous) old wallpaper book....
And I tucked it neatly into the edge of the basket.
I then added some yellow silk tulips (I love fake flowers, as you can see here) and craft moss into one of the corner jars and placed a stark white doily underneath the basket.
Much, much better, don't you think?
