Roundup: 20 Easy Holiday Centerpiece Ideas

Roundup: 20 Easy Holiday Centerpiece Ideas

Admittedly, I'm a bit of an under-decorator.  I prefer the most minimal of minimal centerpieces (this was my centerpiece from xmas '09, for example).  As such, I'm always on the lookout for super-simple centerpiece ideas that are a) modern and b) inexpensive.  And of course, unique and easy.  Fortunately, the following centerpiece ideas are all that - and more!

Looking for a way to use up those no-carve pumpkins?  Simply chop off the top and add flowers.  Voila!  Insta-centerpiece.  For a sweeter setting, try a few holiday-colored lollipops in a painted bucket.  Fun and fanciful.

Oo, agreed!  Pics, pics!

Crystal, I'd love to see a picture if you have one.

Crystal - That sounds lovely!  I love brown packaging/shipping paper - it's so versatile.  And c'mon, mini pumpkins?  Too cute!  :)


Crystal on Nov 03, 2010:

I used a roll of brown (shipping) paper to create a runner over an old red tableclothe (to cover some stains).  Then used some green rafia topped with about 6 mini pumpkins along the center of the table.  I used 4 real pumpkins of varying sizes and colors and 2 glass pumpkins for varity. It turned out very nice and was very inexspensive (only about $6 for the 4 real pumpkins.  Everything else I already had on hand.).


DesigningMom on Nov 03, 2010:

Oh good. I'm glad you understand. :D


CapreeK on Nov 03, 2010:

Chris - Thanks!! If by 'make' you mean 'arrange', then yes! ;) The silver trees and glass balls are from CB2. I added some twists of glittery garland for some extra glitz.


DesigningMom - Ha! Chocoholics unite! And thank you - you're too sweet. (Pun semi-intended.) :)


DesigningMom on Nov 03, 2010:

Well other than the Hershey's kisses one, your personal centerpiece is the best. No offence. I'm just a chocoholic. :^ }

Capree - I love your centerpiece. The photo is excellent, and I like the piece. Did you make it!?
