A Festive Centerpiece
I love decorating with natural elements. I recently mentioned to my girlfriend that I wanted to use pomogranates in my festive decor this year and she suggested I add tangerines and leaves to them for added color. I just loved the idea and couldn't wait to try it! You can grab all of these ingredients at the grocery store while picking up your groceries. It only takes minutes to put together! You will need several pomogranates depending on the size of your container, a small bag of satsumas, and leaf filler from the floral department. Then just layer together in a way that looks pleasing to the eyes. This makes a lovely centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table but would also be gorgeous on a buffet table surrounded by cheese, crackers, figs, olives, etc. for a Christmas gathering. You could also try layering the fruit on a cake stand or in a dough bowl, just use whatever you have on hand. This is a long lasting arrangement which will add lots of life and color to your Holiday table. If you decide to use this idea please send me a photo! I would love to see what you come up with!
It's November 1st! Let the festivities begin! I LOVE this time of year!
