It’s called “I’m running out of time and I need a centerpiece”… Take a clean glass cloche and fill it with some locally made glass ornaments then up turn a glass pie or cake plate onto the cloche, turn everything over, and make sure no wise ass lifts the cloche up. Takes less than 5 minutes to do.


Place a bowl filled with red and white peppermint candies nearby for more holiday feel. This is what you do when you’ve run out of time to do something more elaborate. :)

    Red and white.. So festive.. A more common one is a trifle glass filled with Christmas Balls, preferably one color–

    “locally made glass ornaments”….hand blown perhaps? If so, great for ‘Pins!

    Real nice MM!
    Nothing like panic to kick-start the ideas.
    If you have kids, it might be wise to tape the lid down, hehehe!
