Winter Centerpieces

January 14, 2018

With all of the Christmas decorations put away in my home, (well almost all), everything looks so bare and empty. So I have been trying to think of ideas to use for a centerpiece on my bare tables. When I google ‘winter centerpieces’ all I have found are Christmas decorations or extreme wedding table centerpieces. I even looked at the florist department at the market today- no flowers, no anything!

I thought I had one good idea- forcing Spring branches indoors. But after googling that subject, I found it is still too early for that here in the Northeast.  A few of the early bloomers I love is Forsythia, Magnolia, Flowering quince, Pussy willows, Flowering dogwood, Lilacs and of course Cherry blossom branches!

One idea I have been seeing a lot of is cotton stems used in containers:
