More Centre Piece Decorating Ideas
Incorporate different textures for a visually appealing centerpiece. This arrangement relies on a birdseed filler, which supports an arrangement of cattails. The square vase is wrapped with a length of raffia to complete the natural tableau.
Flowers for Fall
Transform a supermarket bouquet into a holiday-worthy centerpiece. Place a piece of florist's foam soaked in water inside a compote bowl. Trimflowers and stick into foam to arrange. For an extra touch of fall, poke skewers into small apples and nestle them in amongst the flowers.
Super Easy Centerpiece
Don't sweat a seasonal centerpiece. Simply cut flowers at the tops of the stems and float them in little dishes of water. Arranged down a dining table or along a mantel, these make quick decorations with little effort.
Browns and Pinks
Chocolate brown is hot for decorating! We inserted a small vase into a larger one and filled the space between them with coffee beans. The inner vase can hold flowers. Or insert a pink candle into the center of a vase and fill around it with coffee beans. Try other colors as well to fit with your decor -- white, green, blue, or orange.
Make this easy candle showstopper. Group nine pillar candles on a table center; soften the base with a foundation of moss for fall or fake snow for winter. Wrap the candles in wide ribbon andembellish with hypericum berries.
Stems with just a few leaves or berries can make natural holders for family photographs. Tie branches with twine and add evergreen tassels; then insert photos in the branches, clipping them on if needed to hold in place.
Orange slices set the tone for this cheerful arrangement of roses, gerbera daisies, stock, chrysanthemums, and tulips. Lemons, limes, and oranges make colorful embellishments in clear vases. Cut the fruit in slices or wedges, or leave them whole.
Leaves and Light
Dress up purchased candles with a sleeve of leaves. We used salal, but any flat leaf would work. Fit a rubber band or pony-tail elastic around thevotive and insert the first leaf underneath. Align the leaves, though they'll probably need trimming to make a clean bottom edge. Finish with a tie ofraffia or a satin ribbon. Glue leaves together if desired, for a more permanent decoration.
