Easy centrepiece ideas
I think snow is the ultimate in holiday decor. The city never looks prettier - or more festive - than after a fresh snowfall. And, after fighting my way through the freezing cold, wind and smattering of flurries the past two days, I felt it was time to bring a bit of holiday cheer into my home.
So, using a dish from one of my wedding arrangements, a pillar candle and some newly purchased miniature ornaments - which pick up on this season's trends of whites, tone-on-tone and metallics - I put together this centrepiece.
Super easy! And cheap. The new ornaments cost me $18 after tax, and I'll use them again next year.
And, as I've proved, you don't have to be crafty to do it either.
Grab a dish or vase you already have lying around the house - I'm a fan of clear glass, but you could really do any colour, size or shape - and fill it with festive objects. Some suggestions:
- Ornaments in a similar size or colour
- Dried fruit
- Glass 'pebbles' or jewels
Cap it off with a pillar candle, tea lights or LED lights, if you'd like, and voila, a bit of seasonal cheer in minutes.
