I could use yhise scented pine cones and I wouldnt need a candle. need a centerpiece that takes less than five minutes to make? Just place pine cones in a large bowl and place a hurricane vase holding a candle in the middle.
I LOVE exposed brick. I've seen online before that they make super thin "bricks" so that you can cover a wall to give it this look without actually having to live in a true brick building. Would look amazing in the right kitchen or dining room.
