Quick, Fun and Easy Centerpieces


A couple of weeks ago I was invited to help with a Fall Harvest Brunch. 
The theme was to be hospitality and all its different forms. 
So that included all different price ranges and budgets.

 We had a lot of tables and as always a small budget and limited time frame.
So I fell back on one of my previous ideas that I had used at 
Thanksgiving a couple of 
years ago.
 As with most things timing is everything. I was hoping to do fresh flowers, but Michale's had all the Autumn floral for 60% off and time was going to be short the day of the party. 
So I opted for silks.
 This is what the floor of my craft room looked like. 
As always, I had the supervisory help 
of my ever capable 3 legged kitty.... Midge.
 Here are 6 cans that I did.
 Super fast
 Super simple!

Super cheap!


I'm joining Marty for Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.
