A Holiday Centerpiece



Here's quick and easy arrangement that is appropriate for Thanksgiving and Christmas…or just for winter….



I lined a rustic wooden tray with greens, placed a vintage bowl in the center with a candle* and a handful of cranberries.  I dehydrated oranges yesterday to make pot pourri, so I borrowed a few dried slices to add color to the greens. I wanted a real candle for the photos, but due to the wood and real greens, I will be practical and replace it with a flickering battery powered candle that I have (for safety reasons).


I have been crafting all day for my Etsy shop.

Something about this just brings me joy and hope.


Happy Sunday.

  1. Happy Sunday lovely one! Joy and love to you as you prepare your table! I have several battery candles that are on a timer and I like your idea of putting one in a silver bowl then adding garland around it to dress it up. I'm actually fixing up the house at this moment and having fun, just doing some simple arrangements. Enjoy yourself! Anita

  2. I love the simplicity of this.. I can't wait to set my table for Thanksgiving! I got new turkey plates and also some new sterling silver.. can't wait to see it all set up!! I might use your idea for a bit of a centerpiece that won't take up too much room.
