So, I was setting up my Christmas tablescape today (I know, it’s way too early!) and the middle of the table was looking a little bare.
I think now is the time to point out that I have never put a “tablescape” together for any holiday and was a little freaked out at first. I actually had to look at some pictures on Pinterest to figure out what even had to go on the table! Haha! Wow, now that I write that, it sounds pretty sad. We’ve always been very simple diners, so we just toss the plates on the table and start eating!
Anywho … I realized I needed a centerpiece and since I already kind of had this project in mind, I was able to throw it together on the fly. It helps that it’s super easy to do, too!
I started with this miniature evergreen from Michael’s that just so happens to be 40% off this week!
I wasn’t feeling the red bow, so first thing I did was snip that off! Then I grabbed my planter that I made this summer. I took everything out except a couple grocery bags, plopped the tree in, and then snuggled some packing paper around it.
The packing paper gave the edges a little more height so when I dropped my pinecones in, they peeked out the top a little.
Once the tree and pinecones were in place, I decided it needed a little “something”, so I grabbed some bling. I got a couple of these fancy fillers from Lowe’s. Can I just say how great their Christmas stuff is this year?! They are spot on!
I stuck the stem down in behind the evergreen and then just started fluffing and filling in the empty space. A few seconds later I had a cute little sparkly centerpiece!
So, now I’m curious … do you go all out with your table decorations for the holidays or do you just do the basics and focus more on the food like I usually do?
