Simple Christmas Centerpiece

Interiors

Inspired by a vintage tablecloth and glass ornament houses, I created an easy-to-put-together Christmas centerpiece to add holiday style and sparkle to my dining room.

Simple Christmas Centerpiece

You might remember that about a month ago I posted about my vintage modern Christmas table decor. I set the table with glassware, plates, flatware, and even a special cake. (You can see that here if you missed it.) 

As much as I LOVED that tablescape, I noticed that I wasn’t using my table much because of how it was set. Normally, I would have my morning coffee at the table while scrolling through blog post comments on my laptop. With the table set, I couldn’t do that because there wasn’t space. I realized I needed to clear everything off and only have a simple Christmas centerpiece.

I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I mostly used things I already had. I did, however, go to a fave local antique store (Diamond Antiques in Tarentum, PA, in case you’re local) where I found a vintage tablecloth and a glass cake dish and cover. The former turned out to be part of my inspiration!

With those goodies in hand, and a few things from around my home, here’s what I came up with!

Pretty cute, huh?

I was immensely pleased with how it turned out, mainly because it took very little effort or planning. Usually, I stress over these things, but this centerpiece came together easily.

How To: Simple Christmas Centerpiece

For this Christmas centerpiece, I started with the vintage plaid tablecloth. It was a deal for only $10. Instead of laying it straight or “correctly” on the table, I decided to spread it out at an angle. This just seemed more interesting given all the straight lines in the room – the window panes, doors, flooring, and molding.

Next, I placed the cake stand in the center of the table. (I found this one at HomeGoods a couple of years ago.) Then I put my new-to-me glass cake plate on the stand. I sprinkled faux snow on the plate and tucked in four glass ornament houses I had recently picked up at a local shop. I bought them because I thought they were pretty. And as luck would have it, they fit perfectly here. With the houses in place, there was even room for a couple of mini faux pine trees.

Once the mini snow village was complete, I placed a glass dome on the cake plate.

On each side of the cake stand, I positioned a set of black taper candle holders. (You might remember that I also used them in my previous tablescape.) Their clean design looks wonderful with my chandelier

I also recommend these white taper candles. They burn really nicely!

To tie everything together, I added a few more mini trees between the candleholders.

And with that, my simple Christmas centerpiece was complete!

As I said, I am so pleased with how it turned out. I hadn’t planned on sharing the centerpiece with all of you, but when it was done, I couldn’t resist showing it to the world.

Oh, and if you like my vintage ornament tree hung on the wall , you can see how I made that here

    Michael, I love everything you do. I found you last year on pinteres and have been with you since. I look forward to your emails everyday. I’m not computer literate, I just do emails. I make so many of your recipes but I can’t send you photos, I’ll learn someday. I’m 74 years old and originally from Pa. southwest of you. I love your home and what you did to fix it all up. It’s beautiful. I’m making your cinnamon roll bread tomorrow. I have all my ingredients ready to go. It looks fantastic. I have to print most of your recipes so I can remember them and remake them. I want to send you a picture of my Christmas tree this year. I will have my granddaughter do it for me. I have an all white tree and decorate it in black. It’s all black and white. It’s beautiful. When people hear black and white they look at me like I’m crazy but when they see it, they love it. Your are a really talented young man and I enjoy everything you do. Your daily emails make my day.. thank you so much.
