Decorating a Christmas table doesn’t have to be expensive or require you to be an expert decorator. Pick a color scheme, and using some simple greenery (real or faux) and tree ornaments, lay them down the center of your table like a runner. Intersperse votive candles for extra effect.

This simple centerpiece is not only beautiful and festive but can easily be put together in less than 10 minutes!

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 :-)
