Want to make a simple and beautiful centerpiece? Check out this easy to make centerpiece that comes together with 3 easy steps!
Play Sand, Succulents (real or faux!), candles, and a low container of some kind are all you need! Easy-peasy!

Simply fill your long Tray (or trough, like I used) with sand (if you're using real succulents and want this centerpiece to last all summer, include a layer of dirt under the sand).

Then place the succulents in the center and add candles at each end.

Here's a handy video to show you just how I made mine! Check it out:
See how simple? You've got this!!!

I firmly believe that entertaining can be easy and stress-free when you have a plan to follow! And it only takes a few supplies that are easy to round up at your local store.
Ah, relaxed and cool summer entertaining that will leave you with more time to enjoy your friends and family! And still look like a decorating ROCKSTAR! woo-hoo!
