Boxwood and Pine Cone Centerpiece ~ put this together in less than 10 minutes!

Thanksgiving is about family, good food and gathering together. It’s about being thankful for the abundant blessings we each have in our lives. It’s not about stressing over the details. (Just my opinion.) So with that in mind, I came up with this boxwood and pine cone centerpiece for my Thanksgiving table that put itself together in less than 10 minutes. Add another 5 minutes for cutting the boxwood, and call it done.

I began by cutting some boxwood branches from my bushes. I gathered a low but large bowl, and some pine cones. I added just a bit of water to the bowl, then cut the boxwood so the stems laid in the center, and the tips hung over the edge.

I kept adding branches until I had a full circle of greenery that was dense enough to hold the pine cones. I then started stacking the pine cones. Definitely not an exact science, but try to pile the pine cones high enough so they are well above the rim of your bowl.

I waited until it was on the table before adding more water.

I really don’t know how long this will last. My guess is that it might hang in there for several weeks…maybe even until Christmas, if I keep it watered.  I hope so, because I have a few ideas that will jazz it up for the holidays.
