Simple and Beautiful Christmas Centerpieces

December 17, 2016

For Seasonal table centerpieces, I always like to have something  that is easy to move if necessary. You never know what the dining table will be used for next. Eating, playing games, baking cookies, you just never know. That’s why I like to stick with very simple ideas:

There Is No Time To Waste!

The Holiday’s are coming! Now is the time to get those home decorating projects out of the way if you are thinking of doing any improvements before the coming Holiday Season. We only have a short window of time before the company is coming to visit, the Christmas shopping fever is upon us and all of the decorating has to be completed!

Do you have an entry table, mantel, a tabletop or even a tray? Now is the time to make a plan what you will need and decorate it for the Holiday’s. Something simple is always best:



Another dramatic uplifting change you can make is adding colorful area rug, (indoors and out!):

I just wanted to remind you that it is time to start those home design projects before the busy Holiday Season is upon us! Now is the time to check your closet for pretty place settings and plan a special way to lay out the table. This is kind of a public service announcement. You will thank me later.

Have a great weekend everyone!
