Today you are going to go to the local craft store and buy the items necessary to make the centerpiece for your dining table.
Consider this - you might be able to make a centerpiece that matches your dining room, that is NOT a holiday centerpiece. Then add a few picks with colors for Thanksgiving for now. After Thanksgiving, remove those picks, and add a few picks that make it look Christmasy. Then after Christmas remove the Christmas picks, and it can still be your centerpiece!
If you do not have time to shop today, or want to wait till the next payday, just plan what day you will be able to go, and write it down on your calendar.
Have a great day!
