A wintery centre piece for our table

The house is decorated. Bits and pieces of homemade fun are added on a daily basis. Except our kitchen table remains bare. The kitchen is the heart of our home. We eat at the table, complete homework, and craft there too. It is constantly being cleared and then covered again. Alas, nothing stays still. I needed something special.

I was lucky to hear about the Country Basket’s Festive Face-off competition. I was sent a selection of crafting bits and pieces to inspire. I love the combination of white and green. Reminds me of the snow on trees. And I am sucker for snow scenes!

I love the little wire balls. They can be carefully opened to add things into . I thought it would be fun to add some of my festive acorn caps, I’ve been working on. Also by threading the silvery hearts onto to the wire flower stem, I could make a slightly different flower. And this is what I particularly like about a centre piece. It should make you look twice. Maybe ponder but I really like not making it matchy-matchy. A more organic arrangement.

So here is the wintery centre piece that will be gracing our table this winter.

Disclaimer: Country Baskets sent me (thank you) a selection of festive decorations free of charge, in order to enter the competition.
