Chances are for the holidays you have family coming over, and/or friends. Even on Christmas sometimes tensions run high (hopefully not between friends, but rather family). So if great Uncle William is hammered, and Sister Eliza is fuming because Mother Dearest was critical again while at dinner, why not have the festivities surround a gorgeous centerpiece. This do-it-yourself(er) is from Epicurious.com and it’s creator is Michael George (the Artistic Director of FlowerSchool of New York. It’s quite easy to do (for the know how click the picture) and a real room and table brightener. Even in the midst of calm, chaos, anger, annoyance, or drunkenness (disguised as holiday cheer) beauty is always appreciated.
