Isn’t this cute? So the mason jar was from one of our Thrifty Chick designs (most people have these things laying around in their basement somewhere but if you don’t, why not use an old pickle jar?), the bells were from…drum roll……..Dollar Tree….they were only a dollar for a package of 10 or so ( I have two packages worth in this jar). Cute, right? And best of all….CHEAP.
I can’t really have anything cute on my kitchen table for many reasons but the main reason is my almost three year old. Now if I had some hideous centerpiece on my table, she wouldn’t give it a second glance but put up something that you don’t want paws on it and she is ALL OVER it. So I decided to put this on our kitchen table this season and it has been a hit. She actually asks for candy less now that this is attainable.
I got this cute glass container at Crate and Barrel when I was pregnant with my oldest. But you can find these at Dollar General, Target or Wal Mart for a lot less. They don’t usually have red lids but that’s nothing a can of spray paint can’t cure. And who doesn’t love edible centerpieces, right?
I ordered this from one of my daughter’s school fund raiser’s last fall and love it. Notice how the last pocket is empty? Yeah, that is from the same almost-three-year-old who loves to decimate carry around all the cards.
One last note-thanks to my friends and family for the great Favorite Things Lists! They were so much fun to read and I have some favorites from each of your lists:
Mike– Zac Brown Cd
Rebecca– Toss up between Sula perfume and Chipotle Burrito Bol…only extra steak please.
Mom– This one was hard because I loved EVERYTHING on her list but would have to say Door County.
Melissa– The movie Christmas Vacation….we just watched it last week! Play ball!
Dad- The OSU tickets and if I ever were to snag some, YOU are the first person I will give them to.
Kristy– Also a toss up between the margaritas and the People/Us magazine.
