Winter calls for some extra creativity when designing tablescapes. When you need a little inspiration for your next party or gathering, look no further. We have a reference for quick and easy winter centerpieces.
Creative Winter Centerpieces
1. Glass Jar Illumination: Take four to five clear jars or vases of varying heights. These can be of colored glass for some extra dimension. Place several cuttings of greenery into the bottom of the jar. The length of the cuttings should be no more than the circumference of the bottom of the Mason jar. Bend the cuttings around into a circular shape inside the bottom of the jar. Anything seasonal will work for this purpose. Fill each one-half full with water. Add some fresh berries like cranberries, and a floating candle. Accent around the jars with a piece of fabric slightly twisted and intertwined between the jars. Light the floating tea lights just before your event begins.
2. Silver Bells: With a silver tray as your base, arrange 6-10 clear glass votive holders of varying height and shape in the center of the tray. Around the outer edges, sprinkle a selection of artificial crafting pearls in differing sizes and different iridescent colors. Pearl, gray, or mint green, for example, would be an excellent pastel accent to silver and white base.
3. Old School Winter Charm: Using a selection of farmhouse-style ceramic milk pitchers, fill each with solid white blooms and icicle accents. That adds cozy and vintage that we crave during wintertime.
4. Elegant Bakery Delight: Using a cake stand with a top. Fill the cake plate with pine cones spraypainted silver and white. Next, with teal or purple colored ball ornaments, arrange the collection of pine cones, adding the balls for a pop of color here and there. Finally, around the base of the cake stand on the table top, place small tea lights.
5. Music for the Season: Using silver vases, create an arrangement of opened red roses. Keep the arrangement simple and classy with silver vases of varying shapes and heights but with smaller mouths. Choose 5-6 full roses to arrange in each keeping the bud just above the rim of the vase. Three vases would make a nice collection for the centerpiece. Purchase a book of seasonal music printed on quality paper. Taking a page of music, cut a few pages in half, then fold the sheet back and forth in a fan-like form and glue the last edge to the first edge forming a circle. In the center, attach an accent using a jewel, pearl, or adornment of your choice. With pages of sheet music folded into flower shapes, arrange the flowers at the base of the silver vases.
