Today she linked to Infuse with Liz who managed a great Pottery Barn type centerpiece using Indian corn around a huge bowl and a vase with a candle.
Here's my 'use what is at hand' version in progress on the back of my Mule truck where I put it together straight from the field:
The originals used a large container with decorative corn
fastened to the outside. I put field corn inside the bowl.
A tall cylinder vase sits on a small flowerpot that helps
hold the corn and an upside down pot saucer for the vase.
The cylinder is filled with dry shelled corn dropped by
the corn picker. I scooped it off the ground to use as filler.
I look forward to finding a dark color candle,
brown or orange to replace the cream color.
I carefully saved loose shucks and corn silks
in case I decide to make corn husk dollies.
Here are the Pottery Barn and Liz versions on Liz's blog:
