If you’re anything like me, you’ll have found Christmas really snuck up on you this year.
While I’m still scrambling to finish my shopping, wrap the gifts and check all the items off our Christmas bucket list, I haven’t given much thought to decorating my dining table for our Christmas meal.
That is, until yesterday when I was putting the last of the ornament bins back into storage (until they come out again in a couple of weeks to undecorate the house!), and I plopped a bunch of ornaments on the table as I was rearranging a few things.
Suddenly I realized how pretty they looked! So I grabbed more in different colors and sizes, some faux greenery (real works too!) and my favorite votives, centered them along the table and voila – instant festive centerpiece that took 5 minutes to put together!
If you don’t have a bunch of spare ornaments, dollar store ones are perfect and they also sell similar votives! Grab some greenery from your yard and call it a day!
Have a few extras? Use them as place settings on top of each plate or bowl. If you’re picky about them moving around, a little bit of frosting on the bottom keeps them in place and is food safe :-)
