With December 25 just around the corner, I wanted to share some lovely Christmas centerpieces with you. Anyone that knows me is aware of how much I love to create tablescapes. The centerpiece is one of the best parts! And it doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive to be beautiful. You can create a fabulous centerpiece for your holiday table with just a few simple items. With so many holiday decorations to choose from, all you need is a little inspiration.
Fresh flowers are always a nice touch, too. They add color, texture, scent, and beauty. At Christmas time and throughout the year, you can find lots of fresh flowers to fit any budget. Recently, I got some gorgeous mini calla lilies from Flower Muse. I was so impressed with the way they were packaged and how fresh they were when they arrived. I wanted to take some time to think about how I would display them, so I put them in a simple white vase until I could come up with a design. They looked so lovely in the vase, I decided they didn’t need anything else. So I just added a gold bow.
1. A black top hat is the perfect base for creating a whimsical centerpiece. It’s complete with candy cane striped candles and feathery plumes. I’d use the little top hats for place cards and let everyone take them home as gifts.
2. Fill a glass vase with solid-color ornaments and place it on a silver platter. For a final touch, add a ribbon and sprinkle with artificial snow.
3. This one is so simple and so creative! Turn stemmed goblets upside down to use as candle holders. Place decorative ornaments or lights underneath the upturned glasses. If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember seeing this one last month. I still love it!
4. Cover coffee cans with wrapping or craft paper and tie with a ribbon. Then fill them with inexpensive carnations. Complete the look by accenting with some baby’s breath and a little greenery.
5. Create a candy dish centerpiece. Put white pillar candles in clear glass holders. Then place them on a long sleek white tray and surround them with red and white peppermints. This not only looks good, but it tastes good too.
