Holidays evoke so many feelings. Yet, the one that stands out, for me at least, is love –  for family, friends and our mates. And, what better place to reflect love, than in our homes! Today, I’m happy to share how you can create an elegant and romantic holiday centerpiece. I’m currently using it on my kitchen counter but it can be used in any room! Even better, you can recycle the items used in your centerpiece after the holiday season.
