labor of love

every year i have the pleasure of making the centerpieces for the Eastern Shore Pregnancy Center fundraising banquet. our 5th annual gathering was a bit later in the fall than usual so i thought i would take advantage of the season and make something fun and festive for the tables. and who doesn't love candy corn!? most of the fun is finding pretty and simple supplies on a budget. once i have a color theme everything falls into place. the cylinders, vases, lollipops and candles came from the dollar store and the ribbon, candy corn and giant chrysanthemums came from walmart. i was able to create 38 centerpieces for around $3.00 a piece! fun and cute!

  1. OH no! Am I missing this again? I never seem to know about it, or it falls on a weekend we're out of town. The centerpieces are lovely!
