So November is almost over, and I have ultimately been unsuccessful in my NaNoWriMo attempt. I fell behind early on and then had some problems with my storyline. And anyway, this means I'm back to working on the house and blogging! I've actually missed posting on here in the past month.
Matt and I hosted Thanksgiving this year. I made some centerpieces for the table:
I already had the tablecloth and the mason jars. I bought flowers from the supermarket ($15) and cranberries ($6). I filled the mason jars with flowers and cranberries. Flower tip: whenever I put flowers in a vase, I add a little bit of bleach to the water. It helps to keep mold from growing, and I also think it helps preserve the flowers.
Also, I am reusing the cranberry jars as Christmas decor. I did have tea lights in the cranberry jars, but it turns out unless the tea lights are completely flat, they burn out quickly, and it's difficult to get candles to lay flat on top of cranberries. Next time I'll try votives.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I'm really excited for Christmas, and will be posting my Christmas decor soon!
