And if you have received three billion four hundred eighty six million two candle sticks as wedding gifts, why not think keep a few and make these eclectic and sophisticated centerpieces?! The same look can easily be achieved by hunting (or stalking like me) the Dollar Tree, Goodwill, or thrift stores in your area! Happy Hunting!

Christmas, Christmas Time is Near Time for Toys and Times for Cheer
I LOVE CHRISTMAS TIME!!! I am currently brainstorming about how my tablescape will be this year for Christmas. I got the cutest little Christmas plates from Kohl's a few years ago, but now I am definitely brainstorming for the centerpieces. I usually don't do anything or do something really simple like a star bowl. This year I'm thinking large and extravagant, but of course on a frugalista's budget ;). I am planning on using the apothecary jars (that I use for candy buffets) for double duty this Christmas. I will arrange them with the ornaments that we purchased last year during Christmas time. And then purchase more for this year's tree, but shhhh don't tell M :P he's the grinch and I am like little Suzie Who, sneaking Christmas cheer into his heart
This is what I am thinking of doing, and it's a brilliant idea for those brides out there thinking about what to use their candy buffet jars for after the wedding is over!!
Now, I will be allowed to begin Christmas decorations the week of Thanksgiving! So I'll definitely take pictures of my tablescape! I will be using a gorgeous red organza runner that my mom gave me a few years ago to complete my look. I think M will be forced to love Christmas, too!! And I'm sure that baking him cookies will definitely help ;)
