centerpiece idea: stamped books

Last weekend we did an event using a vintage set of encyclopedias as the centerpieces. Their dinner was held in the Library of the Harold Pratt House and the books became a great motif that spurred by the couple's love of reading.

So what's a girl to do when wanting to use stacks of books in a new and different application? How about giving these stamped-variations a try. Paired with cool designs and colorful jackets, you have an instant chic and simple centerpiece for any event.
