I have been spending a lot of time working on centerpieces. It turns out making 20 candy fireworks displays is pretty time intensive. I’ve been re-wrapping, twisting wire, adding longer sticks and doing my dangedest to make those candy wrappers behave. My fingers hurt.
On top of that I’m painting flower pots for floral centerpieces for Saturday’s lunch. Pink and Green. Polka dots and stripes. Paint takes time to dry. Luckily once they are finished all I have to do is shove Styrofoam and flowers into them and they are done. Unlike the candy ones which I’m going to take up to my friend’s house so we can have an assembly party. Thank the stars for friends who are willing to help with fiddly assembly of color!
I bought shiny stars to scatter on the tables with the candy centerpieces, and shells to scatter for the flowers. We will be by the sea so that seemed appropriate. Also lots of shiny confetti to scatter around for all meals. Hopefully it will all look good and people will be thrilled when they win centerpieces after the meals.
