Halloween Centerpiece

If you have been reading this blog for hardly any time, you know beans are always making an appearance, but not for dinner;)
Decorating with beans is one of the most affordable, beautiful, and simple ways to decorate for nearly any season.  Remember these Fall and Spring Hurricanes?
A Halloween Hurricane is one of my favorite looks in October.  The layering of red lentils, black beans, and small White Northern beans is a subtle, yet distinctly Halloween combination.  

1.  Layer red lentils at the bottom!  They are small and “creep” through the layers of larger beans!

2.  If you add a candle, place a short pillar candle at desired level and fill beans in around it.
 This Halloween Hurricane is the focal point of a simple Halloween centerpiece, pretty enough for the formal dining room table!
Use any glass container, hurricane, or apothecary jar to layer the beans and arrange votives and mini pumpkins on a tray for a classic Halloween centerpiece!  The mirrored tray is from PD’s in Franklin, TN.  Well worth the visit if you are in the Nashville, TN area!  Awesome prices!
