Getting creative…….

Last night, I got a spare couple of hours to go to the shops on my own to get a couple more bits to finish off the prep for Christmas dinner etc.

I was meant to ask a florist friend of mine to make a couple of table centre pieces for me but I never got round to thinking about what I wanted and asking for a price. To be honest I didn’t want to spend a lot either.

So, I went shopping in Ikea and Marks and Spencer, and amongst other things got a few bits and put together the below very easy centre pieces.




I liked these simple ‘Ensidig’ jar vases at Ikea, they were only £2.50


Then, again from ikea, Kulort crushed glass : this was £1.75 but they were selling the red off in the sale for £0.75. I put one tub in each vase.


Finally, I split half a packet of pot pourri between  the two jars. This one was reduced to half price at Marks and Spencer (£2.50 down from £5)


Lastly, I tied some twine round the tops of the jars, again from Ikea :), so total cost about £9.25 for the two jars.
