Quick Christmas Centerpiece #1

Centerpieces are often the last thing we think about, but can really add to a table’s atmosphere when we sit down to enjoy a meal with family and friends. I have a couple real quick and easy centerpieces I would love to share with you for the Christmas season.

-a plate, tray, platter
-3 votive holders with candles
-items to scatter around candles

 Scatter anything around the base of the candle holders:  bells, fresh cranberries, red & white peppermint candy, pine cones, chestnuts, tree ornaments, strings of beads, buttons.  This is a great one for any season.  Picture this platter in the spring with some flower bulbs scattered around the candles, or in the summer with some sand and shells.  The possibilities are endless.  

I used an antique platter with three little votive holders from Pier 1.  My jingle bells are from Pottery Barn.

Quick & Easy Centerpiece #2 coming soon!

Alycia Nichols - Great idea! Easy, quick, no muss, no fuss! Bigger table? Just use a bigger tray! I love it! Thanks for stopping by my place earlier. Don’t give Ramon a bigger head than he already has! :-) He’s so proud of himself for his role in our decorating this year!
