It doesn’t have to be difficult to get your festive table looking the best! Little imagination, few ideas – and there you go!

I have put together some of my favourites for you to create effective centerpieces and I am also adding some table setting pictures to get your creative mojo going!

Fall Flowers Centerpiece:

You can purchase bouquets of fall flowers at your local market-or if you can’t get to one, silk flowers will do as well. Use a simple bowl to arrange them for an effective centerpiece (using florist foam to stick them in works the best. And if you choose to use fresh flowers like mums, soaking the foam with water will keep them fresh for days! Add small versions of your centerpiece on each place setting or a single flower with each napkin.

Cranberry Beauty Centerpiece:

This is a very effective and totally easy to make centerpiece! Just put some cranberries into a nice glass dish, place tea lights in them-and there you go!

Creative Lighting Centerpiece:

Tall glass jar or hurricane lamp can become a great centerpiece by adding some fall leaves in it. If you can’t get nicely coloured leaves, get silk ones-one stem of them will do wonders!

Simple Votives Centerpiece:

Simple votive candles become beautiful parts of a centerpiece when wrapped in corn husks, ties with a ribbon or twine and to match-corn husk wrapped short vase with flowers for the centre of the table. This looks awesome when the flowers are surrounded by lit up votives!
