Make your dining table the center of your celebration with these festive DIY centerpieces. Put them together yourself before your guests arrive, or get them involved and start a new holiday tradition. The combination of a delicious meal and festive décor is a surefire way to make holiday memories around the dinner table.
For a more modern look, choose ornaments in one color to dress up the table. Stack them in a clear bowl and add a sprig of greenery for a pop of color.
Create an edible arrangement. Use fruit to create a delicious centerpiece for the table. The best part? You can serve it for dessert once dinner is over.
You can also roll the clove-studded oranges in a fragrant spice mixture to create pomander balls. Wrap each one individually in ribbon and give them as holiday gifts when the night is over.
Don't forget your vegetables. It's not just fruit that has a place on a holiday table — veggies also create eye-catching centerpieces. If you've transitioned to winter plantings like ornamental cabbage and kale in your garden, clip a few bushes to use in your centerpiece. Add Christmas-colored fruits and vegetables like red and green peppers and grapes, and combine in a neutral bowl.
Place the bowl in the center of the table and surround with candles. Set the entire display atop a holiday-themed runner to complete the look.
Tie the twigs together with some holiday ribbon and spray paint them silver and gold for added drama, or spray fake snow on the pine cones to give guests the illusion of a winter wonderland. However you choose to display them, these natural elements are sure to bring warmth to your holiday.
