If you are looking to create a unique and fun birthday centerpiece, just follow the lead of my friend Laureen M. She used a giant cup planter from Walmart as the base. She then adhered Styrofoam in the bottom of the planter, taped candies to bamboo skewers and stuck them in. Finally, Laureen added a little tissue paper and some curling ribbon tied to some of the sticks to help fill in the gaps. That’s it!
You can make the centerpiece as large or small as you need and select just about any container. Ideas include buckets, planters, or glass vases.
