HOUSTON (KTRK) -- We all want to look and feel our best. Well, each week, we're sharing five tips, five items, five products, five ingredients, five steps, five minutes to a more fabulous you, which is why we call it Five to Fab!!!
This week, we're talking about being that fabulous hostess with the mostess, and it starts with our home. Decorating for every holiday, season, and celebration can get quite expensive. Instead of buying a centerpiece for each season, Megan Beauchamp, a co-owner at Magpies Gifts says to invest in one good centerpiece, and then find inexpensive ways to make it festive.
Beauchamp uses a glass hurricane with a removable platform. Without the platform, the hurricane can be used as a vase. With the platform, the hurricane can be used with candles and filled with other festive pieces.
HALLOWEEN: What better season to fill the hurricane centerpiece with candy than Halloween? Candy corns are the perfect sweet treat for the season to add. Top with an orange candle.
THANKSGIVING: Usually, by Thanksgiving, the craft stores are filled with festive garland. Choose one that fits your theme, and scrunch it into the bottom of the hurricane glass. Then, top with a candle to match.
CHRISTMAS: Adding natural greenery any time of the year makes for a beautiful table, but especially at Christmas time. Snip a few branches of greens from your yard, add to the hurricane. Then, add some color with Christmas balls, even fruit. To really take the centerpiece to the next level, add battery operated lights. This will bring ambiance to your holiday table. Top with a red candle.
EASTER: At Easter, use what you have for the kids baskets! Put some grass in the bottom, and then add some Easter eggs to the Hurricane. Also, use flowers for spring time. Top with a pink or pastel candle.
SUMMER: During the summer months, why not bring the beach to your dining room? Add some sand to the bottom of your hurricane glass. Then, drop in some shells and starfish. Finally, top the hurricane centerpiece off with a beachy blue candle.
You can find most of these centerpiece fillers at your local craft store or even in nature. Enjoy decorating and transforming your home!
