Fast and Easy Holiday How-To: Ornate Christmas Centerpiece in a Flash!

Posted on Dec 24 2013 - 1:58pm by Jessi Meehan

On (less than) a dime, quickly and simply…use the ornaments you’ve saved over the years and swap them out for the candles in your candlesticks! Sound a little “different”? It is!


Dust off those ornaments, and wipe off those candlesticks…place your favorite twinkling bulbs just so…and instantly add shine, shape, and dimension to any centerpiece.




–       Remember the 3P basics of grouping items in 3’s 5’s and 7’s…it’ll keep things looking balanced and beautiful. Simple votives will add light and keep your table glowing.
–       Pair brass or gold with like colored pieces, crystal with crystal, and silver with silver as well.
–       A big ‘ol bow never hurt anyone, and it’ll add just enough bright bold color!
–       Ground your pieces with matching placemats or trays to pull everything together.


“Practically Perfect”, no stress, no mess, no cost and sparkling Christmas ornaments turned into centerpieces! Does it get any better?

Merry Christmas Eve, from our table to yours!
