You may (or may not) remember last year when I did a post on having a table centerpiece that is both beautiful and useful. It was riveting so I'm sure you all remember exactly what I'm talking about. But just in case, here's a picture of the centerpiece.
Fast forward a few months....I'm wandering through the dollar store and see a bag of little red "berries" and I thought they would look great in the centerpiece for Christmas. We liked it so much that we left if out for Valentine's Day too. Which is good since that was pretty much my only decoration for Valentine's besides the paper hearts and a red Christmas wreath that also decided to multi-task.
Yes, I'm a big fan of form following function in our home. With a little pizazz.
