A Winter Centerpiece~

I had the pleasure of accompanying my sweet husband last week to his company's annual awards luncheon.  We were treated to a delicious Italian meal along with a wonderful motivational speaker.

Upon the conclusion of the awards ceremony, my husband's boss approached me and asked if I would like to take home the centerpiece that was on our table.  Hmmm...fresh flowers, uniquely twisted arm required.  Almost a week later the arrangement is still gorgeous.

What I loved the most is the little house that is part of the centerpiece.  It lights up!  One light is constant, while another flickers giving the appearance of a fire lit in the fireplace on a cold winter's night.  I intend to keep the little house to use in the future...perfect for the Christmas holidays.

I hope to return to What's for Dinner Wednesday next week.  We have some wonderful dishes we have prepared to share with you!!

What a cute little house - as soon as I saw it, I thought that it would be lovely at Christmas time.

Very generous of him - you'll use the little house for years to come. Thanks for sharing, liz
