10 Exotic Centerpieces for the Holidays

Additional Reading

1. Shoe Magic - Buy gleaming fuchsia (stylish) or red (festive) colored high heeled glass bottom stilettos and fill one of it with flowers of appropriate size for a trendy table top which will set off a trendy, modern theme. You can get a pair at Bobbi's Gift & Leather website. http://www.gift-leather.com/

2. Quick Centerpiece - Fill a goblet with cranberries and tie a bow at its stem for a quick, festive table top.

3. Candle & Sand - Fill a clear glass bowl with colored sand (available at Crafts stores) and stick red or white or a combination of red-white or red-green candles in the sand. Use about 10 candles and arrange them creatively. Light all of the candles together for a lovely shining effect.

4. Tabletop Trees - Mini Christmas trees make lovely tabletops. Artificial trees can be bought or crafted. We have some Christmas Tree crafts at our Crafts section. Alternatively, you can also buy a baby christmas tree or use a branch of a tree and decorate it in the same fashion as you would decorate your Christmas tree. http://www.dotcomwomen.com/crafts/christmas_trees.shtml

5. Snow Globes - Snow Globes or Snow domes lend a whimsical touch to your room. Use them on your table for a touch of fantasy. You can make a snow dome yourself using easy to follow instructions in our Snow Domes project. http://www.dotcomwomen.com/crafts/snowdomes.shtml

6. Ornament Glitter - Fill clear glass bowls or baskets (tied with a red bow) with Christmas baubles in bright red, green or blue and glittering silver and golden colors for a sparkly tabletop.

7. Candle and Bloom - Place 4-5 pillar candles of same color (preferably white) but different sizes in a plate. Place a poinsettia or any red flower and a twig of holly in the same plate. Light all the candles.

8. Snowy Village - Just like snow domes, a Thomas Kinkade snow village scene will bring lots of holiday cheer and fantasy to your table.

9. Hurricanes and Votives - Fill glass hurricanes with scarlet cranberries and red roses and flank the hurricanes with votives.

10. Tapers and Tulips - Creamy white tulips in silver cups flanking a candelabra filled with white tapers make simply sensational centerpieces.
