Lmao @ your grey hair!
I wish I could come out for it. I might have to plan ahead for next year. Tell the ponies to save me room in the barn. I saw some super cute centerpieces at a wedding awhile back that might work. They took small-ish logs, cut them about 2 ft long, used a planer and made one side flat. The flat side is the bottom. Then on top they used a hole saw and cut out holes and put tea light candles in them. It was very cute! If you didn't want the flameage, you could always make them red solo cup holders hahaha!
