These centerpieces were made for my job's christmas party.  I was asked to make 12 and am proud to say that I got them all done in a matter of five (5) hours!

Supplies used:
3 - 8ft garland
1 - 24" garland to fill in bare spots
4 - mug floral foam rounds
christmas picks (there are 4 per arrangement)
12 - glass votive candles
lots of glue sticks
glue gun
wire cutters
3 3/4" circle rounds (to protect the table and cover the foam on the bottom) I had these left over from a scrapbooking project cut with cricut machine.

The colors I used were red, white, and silver.  Sorry I don't have pictures of the finished table, I forgot my camera!  But picture all the tables with red and white tablecloths, then red, white, and silver ribbon streaming down four corners in spirals and the center piece sitting in the center lit.
The idea is a package all wrapped up!

Hope you can invision my masterpiece for I enjoyed it much.
Thanks for stopping by.

My mail lady wanted to buy my Valentine wreath right off my door yesterday...lol I was sorry to hear about you friend. I feel for you as I lost a very dear friend last year on Easter night. She had pancreatic cancer. Stay strong and know that we will all be together one day in Glory!!!
