Christmas is tomorrow! Are you ready?
Gifts wrapped? Check.
House cleaned? Check.
Menu planned? Check.
Centerpiece assembled? What?!
If you need a festive centerpiece that will come together quickly and not require another trip to the store, check out this idea.
It’s festive, quick, and convenient. Here’s the step-by-step instructions (if you need them). I know some of you crafty folks have already looked at it, deconstructed it, and modified it for your color scheme.
Good for you- I’d love for you to share your wonderful creations with me on my facebook page! I love to see how a simple idea can be transformed for different tastes.
Get some fresh greenery and arrange it in a general bow tie shape. I used some free Christmas tree clippings left from my DIY evergreen wreath.
If you have a fresh tree, you could even snip a few branches from the back. 🙂 Some of you may just need a field trip to your backyard for some greenery.
If your field trip takes you to your neighbor’s yard; I recommend asking first, plate of cookies in hand. Who could say no to that?
Arrange ornaments and candles among the greenery.
You can just snatch a few ornaments from the back of the tree and impress everybody with how well your centerpiece and tree coordinate. 🙂
Use unscented candles, preferably. I have a feeling that a Fresh Lilac candle and homemade lasagna would not mix so well.
Also, please exercise common sense when placing the candles near branches. We’re going for fresh here, not fiery!
Here’s another look for the centerpiece; a bright, natural look.
Now you are ready for your guests!
Remember to pin this idea using the handy-dandy button below so you can remember it for next year. If you still don’t have a wreath, you can make your own with my DIY Evergreen wreath tutorial.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
