We're hosting family for Christmas Eve dinner at our house tomorrow, and I wanted to decorate the table "holiday-style." The bowl is a Freecycle find - the pine branches were cut from our Christmas tree so we could fit it properly into the stand - and the pinecones are from our yard. The cardinal is one of several I have around the house. My great-grandmother was one of my favorite people ever, and she loved cardinals (like seriously, obsessively loved them!!). My cardinal collection reminds me of spending time with her, watching her fill her suet feeders and waiting for the cardinals to come and eat!
A super simple centerpiece, and a happy holiday creation - without spending a dime. Works for me (grin)!!
