Cranberry Scape

Kim Biegacki


I wanted to share an incredibly easy and simple centerpiece for your holiday table. I was trying to be thrifty and didn't know what I wanted to place in the center of my table this year. So, I got to thinking about what I had around the house. I remembered the shallow dish that I had downstairs that I don't use very often and thought it would look pretty with something in it. I then remembered I had 6 bags of fresh cranberries in the refrigerator. All I had to do was go and buy some floating candles. Simple to put together and yet very elegant too.

Merry Christmas to you all!
