Elegant and Simple Centerpiece

Simple and Elegant Centerpiece

I don’t know about you, but the one aspect of planning a party I always forget are the decorations. Food, check. Drinks, check. Shower, check.

Decorations? Nope.

Not that that’s the end of the world. After all, the most important part of any get-together is the company. Sparkling conversation covers over a multitude of hosting sins. Still, I like to have a little something just to make it all come together.

This idea is quick, easy, and inexpensive. It’s also very elegant and quite the conversation piece.

Use a tray that you already have on hand, in my case, a beautiful copper lovely that I found at a yard sale. Locate three votives, and black rice. You could also use split peas or lentils for a pretty touch, depending on the color of your tray.

Place the votives in the tray and fill the surrounding area with black rice. Light the candles, and you’re set.
