Easy Christmas Centerpiece Ideas
On Friday, we set up all our Christmas decor in my mom’s house. It’s been tradition to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving and, this year, my 4 year old was so happy. We got the music going, Daddy D was home from work and we transformed Abuela’s house into a winter wonderland. I also got to work on an easy Christmas centerpiece with some extra decor we had laying around, in addition to a few, new pieces from Walmart.
Christmas Centerpiece Ideas
This past year, I got to meet with the creative geniuses of Better Homes and Gardens on a few occasions – both at Walmart Headquarters in Arkansas and at BHG Headquarters in Iowa. I learned a few ideas for Christmas centerpieces that I was excited to implement in our holiday home. How do they think of such simple, yet stunning, home decor ideas?!
First, I learned that BHG makes iconic holiday dishes and platters every year for limited time. This year, the white woodland themed Better Homes and Gardens Iconic Platter was just so serene, I knew I had to have it! I watched as one of the magazine editors created a beautiful Christmas centerpiece using the platter, coordinating bowl and random decor items. I loved the low profile of the centerpiece and how it could be customized to your holiday color scheme.
While in Arkansas, a BHG consultant also showed us several other holiday decor inspiration pieces he created using the BHG iconic dishware. I love Better Homes and Gardens Deer Cookie Jar so much! Using a bit of fresh pine, he created this stunning candle holder. He also raved about the Flameless LED Pillar Candles because of how real they look and feel. He used push pins to create custom monograms and snowflakes on the candles, too, which was a great idea.
Some things these professionals mentioned when designing your Christmas centerpiece was creating dimension and utilizing various elements. I used a small bowl inside the bigger bowl to lift the center candle up, then added various sized ornaments inside.
I glued a snowflake shapes ornament to the outside of the candle and added pine cones for a natural element. Glittered twigs added a fun touch, too.
I’m really happy with how this easy Christmas centerpiece turned out! It looks festive on our table, adding the twinkles of candlelight, while not being too fussy. And I just love the BHG holiday dishware. It was so affordable, yet great quality.
Throwing together an easy Christmas centerpiece really brings our other holiday decor together. It was a quick arrangement, using stuff we had around the house. And once I brought home my pretty new BHG platter and bowl, it really set the table with a festive setting.
