December makes me think about what Christmas gifts to buy, how to trim my Christmas tree, and what to serve on my Christmas dinner menu. Oh! And all the fun Christmas parties I want to throw (even if I don’t really do them)! Most likely, some of your favorite Christmas memories occurred around the table while enjoying the company of family and friends, and perhaps playing out some Christmas table ideas for kids.
1. Holiday tiers
Display your favorite Christmas cards on a tiered stand along with artificial greens, small gifts, and ornaments.
2. Balls of fun
Create a colorful centerpiece by filling a silver bowl with a variety of brightly colored decorations. Place the bowl on a cake stand and cover the extra space on the cake stand with holly and evergreens.
3. Red and white cheer
Carnations cover a rectangular glass vase covered with candy canes. Attach candy canes to the vase with a hot glue gun; Anchor flowers in floral foam. If desired, spray canes with coats of clear acrylic spray to prevent sticking. Finish with ribbon and mint.
4. Woodland table
Despite its exuberance, this centerpiece requires minimal effort. Place a live moss base (available at florists or online) around a focal point, such as a twisted log or mound of stones. (Moss stays green for weeks, but falls off. Put a protective surface underneath). Look for food in craft stores or nurseries or in your backyard for more. Tuck fern clippings or small potted houseplants into crevices. Sprinkle real or fake acorns and pineapples. “Plant” some ceramic mushrooms. To finish, place glass vases, votive candles, and tapers around the arrangement to give it brightness and color.
5. Clear Glass Sparkle
Create a beautiful centerpiece with a variety of clear or lightly tinted glass bottles. Fill some with small glass balls and add a sprig of boxwood or other greenery. Everyday white plates look fresh and elegant with a colored linen napkin on top.
6. Tower of apples
Green apples are the perfect shade for an easy Christmas display. Fill a glass jar with apples; Toss in loose veggies for a wintry feel. Place the container on a beveled-edge mirror (which serves as a table runner). Fill with additional greens, ball ornaments, and different sized candles.
7. lantern light
Surround the lanterns with fresh greenery and pinecones to create a classic and elegant centerpiece.
8. Fragrant Light
Take advantage of the Christmas scents by making a fragrant red candle the center of your next Christmas centerpiece. Cut and weave a bed of artificial evergreen branches. Place the candle in the center of the branches and scatter a collection of colorful decorations, bells, and pinecones around the branches. Garnish with ribbon if desired. Make sure you never leave a burning candle unattended.
9. Luminous lights
Create a modern Christmas feel by using white tape, stickers, and other supplies from the craft store to create snowflake designs on clear hurricane candle holders. Place candle holders on a silver tray and accent with tinsel, pine twigs, and brightly colored decorations.
10. Holiday spirit
If your family celebrates Hanukkah and Christmas, this centerpiece is the perfect match. Place a menorah on one side of a silver tray and fill the rest of the tray with colorful decorations.
