I hope you have had a great week! We are gearing up for a long weekend as we celebrate the Canadian Thanksgiving. Yes, I know it’s only mid-October, but it provides us a few more weeks to prepare for Christmas

Like every year, we will be visiting family and having a delicious feast, or should I say feasts as we will be visiting both my parents and my mother in law. They each celebrate Thanksgiving in their own way, but full of love and laughter all the same.
Today I wanted to share some centrepieces I made using more traditional colours and a $10 bouquet from the grocery store. I wanted to incorporate a candle into the mix, and would suggest using a tall candle so to avoid any “accidents” of the toasty kind. Unfortunately, I did not have any tall candles on hand.
I hollowed out a pumpkin and placed a jar inside. Even though I had put some wax at the bottom of the jar to set the candle in place, it would not stay put. I had a little light bulb moment and put two elastic bands around the jar to hold the candle in place, which also helped keep the flowers from moving around.
