Over the years I’ve spoken with a number of people about the need for a smaller than twin size bed. Often these individuals are trying to find something that can work for a cabin, for a small room or a tight space where typical beds just don’t seem to fit. Another need I’ve heard is to try and maximize the number of beds that can be placed into one room. The solution would be a bed size less wide than a standard twin but would have the same length and we refer to this in the industry as a cot size.
Centerpieces: Table centerpieces and door hangings can be a nice holiday touch, but do not overlook this decorative opportunity just because it isn’t Christmas! Pumpkins, acorns, and pinecones make great centerpieces for the fall months. You could hollow out a pumpkin and use it as a flowerpot or elevate a candle and add stones and acorns to the design. Beaded garland is always a nice touch. You can wrap this around gourds, or plastic apples and throw acorns and leaves in the mix. For extra shiny leaves, rub with a little Vaseline or moisturizer.
