I'm always paranoid that I'll leave real candles lit and leave the house (and this has TOTALLY happened before) so I'm pretty much sold on this whole flameless candle thing. I'm not sure why I hadn't tried them sooner.
In terms of decorating the clear glass log as a centerpiece, I went with hydrangeas. Hydrangeas have become my flower of choice--regardless of season. They're readily available and priced well at my grocery store, they last a long time and they look fabulous in my vase of choice--which is a Mason jar. All I did to create a simple Thanksgiving centerpiece is shove some hydrangea pieces into the clear glass tube. Voila--instant class! I'm not hosting Thanksgiving dinner, but if I was, there'd be mason jars of white hydrangeas, a kraft paper table runner, and plain white candles set about in a rustic fashion. This centerpiece would be perfect.
The cool thing is that the glass log is customizable for any holiday or and style. I personally like it plain, but I played around with a few other options, too.
