Fall Floral Centerpiece & Giveaway for 100th Post and 500 Followers


(Picture courtesy of Photobucket.com.)

Miracle on 34th Street is one of my favorite holiday
films.  Who can't help but love this 1947 classic film.
Kris Kringle becomes upset when the Santa Claus for
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is found intoxicated.
He is asked to take the place of the drunken Santa and
does such a good job that he is hired to be the Santa at
Macy's flagship store in New York City on 34th Street.
Kris Kringle is eventually put on trial to prove that he
really is Santa Claus.

Macy's
  and their Thanksgiving Day Parade and The
Miracle on 34th Street are a big part of  holiday
traditions. 

Yes, there really is a Santa Claus and he is helping us 
 celebrate reaching 100 posts and 500 followers

Now to help with your Thanksgiving celebration -


Create this stunning Fall centerpiece quickly and
easily.  You might even have everything you need
around the house.  It takes very little time and
very little talent!


This idea was featured on The Style Sister's
Centerpiece Wednesday a couple of weeks ago from
 Better Homes and Gardens and it caught my eye.  I decided
to head to the store and try making my own.

Supplies

clear glass vase, goblet style
(I already had this from my son's wedding reception -
I got it on clearance at Wal Mart last January for $7.
Wal Mart has a great clear glass vase selection.)
silk flowers - I bought a Fall bush at Wal Mart for about $7
glue gun and glue sticks
small pumpkin (this one came from our garden)






I began with the purple and green flowers around the lip of
the glass, then I glued on the oak leaves to the bowl and
then pulled flowers apart to cover the stem.



Then I covered the base with leaves and added
additional flowers around the base.
This was really easy and could be done a million ways.



A few decorative berries draping on the sides with a little
greenery and leaves and the pumpkin was topped with its
own flower. This vase was done in less than an hour.



I placed it on my side table in the living room with a few other
Fall items. 

What a fun and easy change from plain glass to fanciful vase.

It almost looks like the Fall Garden fairies
 might have created it!

I will be posting this with

For the Thanksgiving Challenge I wanted to say
that I am thankful for my five senses.  Especially
at this time of year, I love sight and smell and
sound.  The sparkle of the holiday lights, the smell
of cinnamon and the sounds of Christmas music
and children's excitement.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  8. One of my favorite parts of the movie is when the store manager is listening,out of view, to Kris(Santa) speak with one of the moms of the lined up kids. She tells Kris she can't find the toy she wants at Macy's, and Kris tells her to go to the competing store,Gimble's. The manager's(can't remember his name)face changes from happy to horrified! :) I also like the scene when Kris speaks the language (Dutch?) of the little foreign girl and sings with her, which astonishes Susan. Can you tell I like this movie too? :)

  20. It's awful hard to pick out a favorite part of the movie, but I'll tell you TWO that I can think of right off the cuff!.. For one, I love the part when Doris writing a note for Kris saying she believed too!!.. And for another, I loved the end of course, when they find his cane standing by the fireplace!! Honestly, I choke up and smile at the same time, just thinking about both parts!!!

  37. As for the movie...it has been a long time since I've seen it, but my main memory is just how cute Natalie Wood was in the film. I always admired her as an adult and I was fascinated with her as a child in the movie.

  46. I love this movie. One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time. I think one of my favorite parts is when Santa speaks to the little girl in her own language. It just melts your heart how she perks up and is no longer afraid! Oh now I need to go watch it again!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My favorite part is near the end when they're driving down the street and the little girl yells "Stop the car! Stop the car!" and they go in and find the cane by the fireplace and the swing in the yard. Talk about a perfect ending!

  53. Miracle on 34th Street is absolutely one of my very favorite movies! There are many parts that I like...perhaps the best would be in court and the responses Santa provided to prove himself.

  57. Jacqueline -- what a fun giveaway. I love the old Miracle on 34th Street. Is the little girl Natalie Wood? The Santa is the best Santa. I love his interview with the psychiatrist! I also love it when Santa knows the little girl's language. I love it when the mail comes into the courtroom all addressed to Santa and the young attorney wins the day. I love Maureen O'Hara in this role. And of course, I love the ending when the little girl gets her dream house and the cane is by the fireplace. It's a great holiday classic and what a great way to celebrate your 100 posts and 500 followers. I am so glad you are in blogland. Your posts are so fun and creative! Joni

  126. Okay, here's my second entry. I would buy my husband a gift, as I usually never have my own money by Christmas as I'm on Social Security, and it's gone to everyone else. I would love to be able to get him something for once.

    Hugs,
    Meri

    ReplyDelete
  127. And the third and final entry.......

    My favorite part of the movie is actually at the end when they find the cane in the house they stopped to look at. It just epitomizes all the hopes and dreams that Santa really could exist, and I love the excited feeling I get every time I see it. It's going on 45 years of watching it (at least twice during the season) and I have to have the colorized version......I'm spoiled that way.

    Hugs,
    Meri

  128. My favorite part of the movie is the end when Bryan and Dorey end up at the church and get married then Susan finds out by seeing Dorey's ring. I just love the wonderful happy ending!!

    I'm getting super pumped just talking about all the baby stuff! :)

  137. My favorite part of "Miracle on 34th Street" is the part when the postal service delivers all the "Dear Santa" mail to Kris Kringle during the trial and all those letters came tumbling out of the bag all over the floor. :)

  145. Ohh my...if I were to be the lucky winner of the Macy's gift card...I would buy my husband's Christmas with it! I am retired and no longer work outside of the home. It would be nice to get him a gift that he didn't have to pay for...know what I mean? Hehe!

    Thank you, Jacqueline!

  151. It's been a few years since I watched that movie but I remember Santa gets gum stuck in his beard and early in the movie he lets the kid tug his whiskers.

  153. If I won I would spend the money on ties for my husband. Most of his ties have big snags in the silk, and he recently had to part with a few of his favorites. I would also spend the money on two little girls...pretty much on anything pink, frilly, and probably excessive.

  154. Next, my favorite part of the movie is when they find out that the old man is Santa. I will be crossing my fingers until the results are in. Love you so much.

  157. My favorite part in the old movie was when the little girl saw her dream home as they were driving past :-) but I love the newer version of the movie too and love the part she wakes up on Christmas morning and sees the big diamond on her mom's hand making sparkles on the wall. I just love the whole movie and watch them every year :)

  173. The part of the movie that touched my heart was almost everything, but the part where the little girl finds the cane in the corner of the house. Her wish came truth.

  181. My favorite part in the movie is when they drive past the house and the little girl jumps out and runs in. The adults are then left to wonder who Kris really was.
