Hello lovelies! Happy February! Where did January go?
I have a DIY for you today, or really, more of a guide about centerpieces.
So often our kitchen tables form the center of activity for our homes, and that means that form is sacrificed to function. Here's a few tips on creating a centerpiece that allows you to get your stuff done...but not to sacrifice beauty and atmosphere!

I put down disposable paper doilies to catch wax drips and protect my cake plate. I also used a little dab of "stickums" to make sure the tapered candles (--er, stubs, in this case) wouldn't tip over if the table was knocked. And since the wine bottle is particularly delicate up there on the cake plate, I stabilized it with a little knob of sticky-tack to make sure it wasn't going to wobble.
