Wintery Tablescape

I am ALL about a table centerpiece that works all winter, not JUST for Christmas. 

I found a large wooden box, which was in great condition for $3.95 at the thrift store and it set me spinning out of control on a tablescape adventure.




I started with a piece of drop cloth and jute and wrapped it around the table.

I had some help

The jute wasn't tight enough and the drop cloth was still all drapey, so I used packing tape to secure it. I am hoping none of my guests look under there:)



Then, I ran out to our unruly juniper bushes and hacked away at them. I snipped a ton of branches and started filling my box.


Grab and go is my policy. I used pine cones we had collected on a hike, jars and bottles that I had from previous thrift store purchases, candles that have been hanging out for a while, and a few dollar store decorative balls.



These branches are really holding up better than I thought they would. I have a never ending supply though, so I am not too worried.



I am really loving the drop cloth too-I think that is going to be staying for a while.

That is a great example of a wintery centre piece, puts my single candle to shame!
