Baby, it's Cold Outside

It's that time of year again -- It's getting colder outside and all you want to do is light your Christmas candle, turn on the TV, and watch a Lifetime movie while cozied up on your sofa.  We understand.  We get it. That's why we've pulled together some of our best snuggly sofa fabric combinations to tempt you. What better material to snuggle into than a furry, soft shearling....faux of course!

So, turn on that fireplace, make yourself a hot cup of coco (Go ahead an add the mini marshmellows too. We won't tell!), and spend the afternoon perusing some of our favorite lounging seats for those cold, winter days.

We've just found a couple of new recipes that have us all excited for dessert!

Beautiful, DIY Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Thanksgiving is a day away! For those of you that are hosting, I am sure your mind is going a little crazy right now. Turkey. . .Check. Sides. . .Check. Desserts. . .Check. Oh no, you have been so busy prepping the Thanksgiving meal, you forgot all about the Thanksgiving table!

The last thing you want to do is spend hours on Pinterest looking for an original centerpiece that will take forever to make. Well, you're in luck, because we spent those hours on Pinterest for you and picked out our favorite center pieces that are simple & easy, but still thoughtful & fun.

Pumpkin Floral Arrangement

This is an easy flower arrangement that won't break the bank and yet still impress your guests. You could even give this as a hostess gift because it is simply too cute not to! All you need are a small pumpkin, a small floral bouquet of your choice, and some floral foam that is pre-soaked. First, cut open your pumpkin and take out the guts. Then, cut your floral foam to make sure it fits through the hole on the top part of the pumpkin. Surround the edges and open spaces with your scrap pieces of floral foam. Finally, add your flowers one at a time. Fill the pumpkin with water and enjoy your beautiful pumpkin centerpiece!

Decorative Cinnamon Candles
This DIY candle project is super easy & will have your house smelling amazing as the candle warms up the cinnamon sticks! All you need are candles, cinnamon sticks, thick elastic bands, and twine. First, place an elastic band around the bottom of the candle. Move it up an inch or two. Then, slide in the cinnamon sticks behind the band, one at a time. Last, wind your twine around the candle about 5-6 times to make sure the elastic band is covered. Now, your house is going to smell like the holidays.

Twig Votive
 This easy, recycled centerpiece will have your dinner table looking chic and rustic! You simply need jars, twigs from outside, and a hot glue gun. Glue the twigs against the jar until it is completely filled. Then, place small votive candles in. Easy as (pumpkin) pie!

Wine Bottle Upcycle

We are giving you an excuse to crack open a bottle (actually two bottles) of wine. This is a simple, creative, and inexpensive way to turn wine bottles into d├ęcor. All you need is two bottles of wine, some twine or ribbon, spray paint, and a paint pen. You can choose whatever color goes well with your theme.

Thankful Tree

Time to branch out (literally)! This Thankful Tree is a great way to add a POC (pop of color) to your room. Grab some branches from your backyard, trace some leaves on colored construction paper, and write down what you are thankful for. It is also nice to show kids what Thanksgiving is all about - being thankful. Use double sided tape to attach the leaves to your branches.

~Happy Thanksgiving from Century Furniture. May your Thanksgiving be filled with peace, love, warmth, and joy!~
