My husband and I were married in September of this year, and as we were decorating for the wedding one of the bridesmaids unpacked a silver “H” for the cake topper. Since my last name in McCurdy she was stumped, if only for a moment: “Who is the ‘H’ for?” Immediately she laughed out loud as it clicked that the ‘H’ started the groom’s last name and would soon become my legal last name.
I became attached to that silver ‘H’ and when it came time to decorate for Christmas, I wanted to find a way to use it again. That’s how I was inspired to put together this centerpiece, repurposing a few mismatched items from the Christmas decorating tote.
