I am thinking ahead to Thanksgiving, and wanted to share an easy centerpiece idea that I made a few years ago. I made two pillar candle holders.
I also bought some fall floral stems and cut the length off. There are two large and two small flowers of each color (but you could use whatever flowers you want).
Begin pushing the flower stems into the styrofoam. It helps to push them down at a 45 degree angle so the petals go up against the candle hole.
You want to alternate the colors in a pattern. I did big red-small red-big yellow-small yellow.
Right now I am using them to decorate the buffet, but I have used them on either side of the turkey on my table.
