Easy Entertaining: A Five-Minute Centerpiece for Impromptu Entertaining

Don’t forgo cute entertaining decor when you don’t have much time!  This cute centerpiece incorporates the dinner wine as well as some candles.  Scraps of fabric that I had left over from other projects create a cohesive and seemingly planned centerpiece when tied around the bottles and vessels with burlap twine .

Cut all of your fabric scraps in varying widths and layer together.  Using the same pattern and colors throughout, creates a cohesive statement.  I used a pretty autumnal yellow pattern twice, some swiss dot lace twice and natural muslin throughout.  Placing all of the pieces on a platter unifies the ‘centerpiece’ and can also tie back to the colors/aesthetic.

*Quick Tip! Pulling out a strand of the burlap weave not only gives you a perfectly straight line to cut down, but it also leaves you with a matching piece of perfectly sized twine to use as a tie!

Voila! Beautiful, Practical and Easy!

*if you don’t have fabric scraps at home, a quick trip to the fabric store can score you many wonderful patterns in fabric remnants!  Maybe you can give it a go this weekend?

Have a FABULOUS Wednesday!!

(because don’t fabulous Wednesday’s just make the week go so much quicker?)
