Earlier this week I shared our Christmas home tour and today I wanted to share how I made our dining room table centerpiece. Fresh greenery can be expensive so before you head out to your local tree farm, grab a basket, shears and take a walk through the woods. You will be amazed at the fresh greenery you will find and the best part, it’s free! Last year a friend of mine shared a secret spot in town to get winterberry branches. Oh my, I was in heaven! We are very careful though about what we bring indoors for fresh greenery as some is poisonous to dogs.
I created an easy centerpiece for our dining room using cedar, spruce and boxwood. I started with a long wooden bowl and snipped a group of small greens from the larger limbs.
I layered the three different greens inside the bowl.
I added the cedar first because of it’s flat full body which in return, makes for a nice base.
After a few minutes of layering the greens, the bowl was full.
I added a few pinecones and in under 10 minutes, I created a beautiful simple centerpiece for our dining room table.
I love Christmas decorating and adding fresh greenery to bowls, vases, tabletops and any space that needs a little Christmas flare. If you do not have fresh greenery in your back yard, try a friends house or simply pull over on the side of the road and start snipping! ;).
