” Its the most wonderful time of the year...” – one of my favorite Christmas song 🙂 Yes, holidays are here. Am sure you are busy shopping, packing gifts and cooking for the Christmas Party! Spending holidays with our loved ones is the most precious gift that we can get! It relieves stress and brings out positive attitude in us. Not to forget the sweet aroma of baked goodies relaxes us 🙂 Oh yes, they do help us put on some extra pounds. But why worry? New year is always there to take resolution of reducing the weight (This happens every year!)
Holiday parties are not complete without centerpieces. There are gazillion ways to decorate your table! Here are a few home made “wallet friendly” centrepieces that are simple and easy to make. You need not spend $$ searching for perfect centerpiece. You can use things from your fridge, garage or even from your backyard to decorate your party table and bring in the holiday cheer!
Nature inspired centerpiece: How about bringing the berries and pine needles on your table/fireplace mantle? Deck up your table with the simple finds from your backyard! Arrange them in glass jars, candle holders or recyclable metal tins.
The jar in the middle is my “oil dispenser” that I have transformed as my classic mantle decor!
Do you have old/used lanters? Just clean them up and use them as candle holders. Dig your garage/store, you may find wonderful ideas for DIY centerpieces.
We recently changed living room light fixtures. We added contemporary lighting to our living room. Old light fixtures found their way to the garage. Here I have used one of the old light fixture as elegant centerpiece! I placed few LED tea lights underneath the fixture, topped it with pine needles and tied a red ribbon. Reminds me of jingle bells 🙂
Pomanders: How could we forget the aromatic pomanders?! Pomanders are oranges decorated with cloves. The smoothing smell of cloves and orange brings in festive mood! I have blogged about pomanders here. Click on the picture below to read more about pomanders.
Here is my Pomander Chocolate centerpiece! Tie pomanders with red (festive color) ribbons and voilà your aromatic centerpiece is ready!
Hope you liked my simple and easy to do home made table centerpieces! Enjoy your festive meal with family and friends! Happy Holidays 🙂
