A do-it-yourself holiday tablescape or centerpiece can anchor a meal and bring people together around the table. Check out our four easy and inexpensive ideas for dressing up your holiday table.
Pomegranates, gourds, cranberries and oranges can take center stage in a beautiful glass bowl or vase. Pine cones and branches add a classic, rustic feel – great beside a carved prime rib. Choose a variety of complimentary colors and textures to keep eyes wandering without overwhelming.
A Picture’s Worth…
If you have the meal locked down, encourage guests to bring photos of family and friends to create a potluck centerpiece. Decorative binder or paper clips will keep precious memories from falling into the gravy boat.
Wrap It Up
Run wrapping paper with a simple, but elegant, print down the middle of a table for an instant table runner. Plus, cleanup couldn’t be easier.
The Kids Table
If you’re hosting young children, task them with creating a centerpiece out of pipe cleaners, construction paper, markers, glue and any other on-hand art supplies. It will keep them from being underfoot in the kitchen and they’ll be proud to contribute to the holiday meal.
