There are so many wonderful sources for us out there: I love Pinterest (Here is a link to my pins, you can explore others), other bloggers, magazines and web sites for us to explore.
One of the wonderful thing about blogging is that it is a 2 way communication and that it really isn't anything without all of you. Since I love hearing from all of you, I am hoping I can also motivate you to post and share your takes on the inspiration pictures or perhaps you have already done a version of the inspirations I present and you can add your advise to help all of us. My goal is not to copy, but to use these as inspiration for our own creative versions and inspire our creative journey.
So here goes.....
I love this and for once Martha doesn't make it look so complicated with specialized materials that you don't want to even try it. Sit this as a centerpiece, on a coffee table, or even on the floor somewhere.
Probably a lot of you have a creative "pantry" where you keep things for serving, decorating and centerpieces and if you don't I bet you have more than you think. I love, love, love to scavenge in my own house for inspiration. I always keep a supply of baskets. They are so great for such presentations as centerpieces, serving, decorating and a pretty way to transport my food contribution to a home dinner invite.
I would use florist foam, secured in the bottom with wire or better yet placed in a small container to add water. I also keep in my creative pantry tons of pinecones I have had for probably 10-15 years I use over and over again. I'm sure you've seen them in my other posts. Add silver or gold spray paint OR glitter to the pine cones or just leave them natural. Wait how about just a line of glitter on some of the tips. Okay, I'll stop...I can get carried away, sorry. Anyway use wired florist sticks to attach the cones...cheap at Michaels...I think I paid $4 or $5 for 30 or just use the ole glue gun. Add various pines...and a lovely bow...I do love the satin bow.
Words of Inspirations: Berries, Spray snow, Ribbon, Bulbs, Hydrangea maybe add a treasured piece of Christmas decor nestled in the center...
