You can see some of the filler in this shot. There is a glass cup built into the center of the gigantic hurricane. For safety, I only burn a candle in this when I am in the room. I also use a very tall candle...for safety, and for appearance.
I put the centerpiece on my great grandmother's cherry table. I added a few sprigs of silk holly to the vignette also. I have to keep anything with faux berries away from Designing Dog. He loves to get too close and he tries to nibble them off. He does not bother the Christmas tree or the ornaments. He just has a thing for plastic red berries. So...I cannot not have anything down within his reach. It is sort of like child proofing a home for a toddler.
