Decorating Inspiration: 5 Easy Holiday Centerpieces
By Allison Lind for Home Rehab Online
When you’re hosting for the holidays, it’s your time to shine. The perfect way to show off your hostess-with-the-mostest prowess is by placing an “I-would-never-have-thought-of-that” stunner atop your table or in your entryway. Check out our five holiday centerpiece ideas for some decorating inspiration. They may move you to create your own unique showstoppers — or just duplicate these and call them your own. We won’t tell.
1. Old is New Again
To create this simple centerpiece, interior designer Virginia Burney dug through her old and unused ornaments and found a hodgepodge grouping that looks like it came in a ready-made pack. Stick to two or three colors of ornaments so the display isn’t too jarring. Here, a couple shades of red are accented by gold and topped with fresh pine branches from the yard for the perfect Yuletide table topper (and the pine adds a nice, fresh scent too!).
2. Understated Elegance
Want an elegant holiday centerpiece for your table? Let your table sparkle and shine with white tulip arrangements adorned with pretty ribbon and sparkling silver ornaments. This one, created by Laura Trevey of BrightBoldBeautiful.com, looks crisp and classic. Placing a few identical arrangements atop mirrors adds extra sparkle. Flank the arrangement with taper candles to further add to the ambiance.
