Winter Centerpiece

Good morning! Thank you to all who participated in Show and Tell Friday and for your comments on my hedgehog collection!
Candles
Today, I want to share my winter centerpiece that I put together last week using candles, pinecones and a few other simple things.

Candles

Plate
A 1$1.99 plate charger from Hobby Lobby.

Grapevine balls
Small grapevine balls from the floral section. They were attached to long stems, so I just cut them off with wire cutters.

Candles
I arranged three pillar candles on the plate.

Candles
Along with the grapevine balls and pinecones.

Candles
Nice and cozy for a winter evening!

Thank you for taking a look and I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!

I love the pinecones. I have something like this with blue candles and I put shells or acorns around it...whatever. It's so easy to change the look.

I just love that idea, Kelli, I'm thinking of doing something similar for my coffee table in the living room. It's sitting empty right now with just magazines on it!

Also loved your hedgehog collection in your previous post, so darling!! xoxo

Hi Kelli, cute centerpiece. I know I am always at a loss what to do in January for table decorations, or really any kind of decorations. I like how this looks, great idea....as usual! You are one creative cookie!

Simply Heart And Home said...

So pretty, Kelli! What an inviting look to your room.

Jill Scott said...

I love the pinecones and the twig ball thingies. So rustic and pretty.

Carrie said...

Simply appealing...

Tony Crawford said...

Not to be a wet blanket (OK, well maybe just a little wet blanket), as you know, pine cones are very flammable, so the combination of candles and pine cones can be very deadly. You may already be aware of this, but just in case you were not . . .

Tina Leigh said...

Kelli I love this simple idea...that is right up my alley....except I still cant put things out yet. Little Package gets into everything. I still have the coffee table in a bedroom. LOL.

Mrs. Staggs said...

This is very pretty Kelli, and includes two of my favorite elements, white candles and the texture of pinecones and twigs.
