With Thanksgiving around the corner, we're all scrambling to complete that ever growing to-do list. Between deep cleaning your house and coming up with a menu that pleases everyone, I know it can be overwhelming. Here's the thing: I ain't about that life, and I know you aren't either. I'm here to help ya out by giving you a quick centerpiece idea and a short hostess checklist that will keep your head from spinning.
All you need? Fresh flowers or faux stems, an oversized jar, and some tea candles. Make sure to snag a jar that will hide the ends of tattered flower stems or trimmed faux ones. Cut to measure - you want the stems to stick out of the jar, but you don't want them to be disproportionate to the jar itself. Arrange to your liking and then scatter some candles along the length of the table (all about that ambiance). For an extra touch, grab some of your extra stems and place them in front of or around the jar. OK, was that easy or what!?
