Christmas Table Centerpiece Ideas

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re lucky enough to have an abundance of fragrant evergreens such as noble fir, cedar, and juniper. This aromatic, fresh greenery is part of what inspires our holiday centerpieces. Using fresh greenery as the base for a holiday centerpiece allows for endless festive customization. The focal point of any great holiday table is the Christmas table centerpiece.

Rustic Christmas Centerpiece Ideas

Opt for rustic centerpieces adorned with red bows and pinecones for a cozy and classic Christmas feel. Our Modern Farmhouse centerpiece features a versatile hexagon metal and wood container, which can be displayed in many ways. Further, add to the rustic theme by filling mason jars with fresh greenery or pillar candles. Rustic tables look great with burlap table covers and plaid linens. Twine wrapped around napkin rings is the perfect finishing touch.

Our Hunters’ Hollow centerpiece infuses gorgeous burgundy tones with natural elements. Fresh noble fir, incense cedar, and white pine create a lush haven for sweet little chickadee birds, with faux deer antlers added for interest and rustic charm. Playful elements such as wooden Santas, fake birds, glass snowmen, and felt gnomes liven up a holiday table.


Winter Wonderland Decor Ideas

If you dream of a white Christmas, create a winter wonderland on your dining table! Embrace a color palette of blues and whites, and incorporate snow-themed decorations and figurines like snowflakes and snowmen to transport your guests to a snowy paradise. Our Silent Night centerpiece features a white-washed wooden container, rich accents like a midnight-blue bow, dark blue baubles, frosted pinecones, and faux blueberries to bring a bit of nature inside.

The Arctic Adventure centerpiece has soft and furry bears in a forest of fresh noble fir, incense cedar, and white pine for a more playful centerpiece. Between them grows a beautiful white LED light-up tree that can be used and enjoyed in winter decor for years. Create a floral centerpiece with faux blue hydrangeas and white spray-painted twigs dipped in silver glitter for a White Christmas theme. Icey blue or silver place settings complete the wintery look of holiday decor.

Christmas Candle Centerpiece for a Warm Glow

Candles can instantly elevate the elegance of your Christmas table decorations. Consider using votives, pillar candles, or taper candles in various heights to add depth and sophistication to your centerpiece. The soft, flickering glow will enhance the festive atmosphere. For a formal dinner, consider a silver-tone or gold-tone candelabra.

The Cascade Centerpiece is a bestseller featuring two red candlesticks that will bring a warm glow to every holiday dinner. Centerpieces that use LED lights are another great way to achieve a cozy atmosphere. A white LED lantern sits on top of a fragrant base of fresh noble fir, incense cedar, and white pine in the Northern Lights centerpiece. 

Home Decor Christmas Centerpiece Ideas

While beautiful centerpieces shine on the dining room table, they can add festive holiday decor to other places in your house. Add a centerpiece to your living room coffee table or kitchen island to spread holiday joy throughout the home. Our fresh greenery centerpieces can be displayed outside on the front porch to greet your holiday visitors. 

Beautiful Christmas centerpieces make a unique and festive gift, especially for family members in nursing homes or small living spaces who cannot have a Christmas tree. Gifting a beautifully decorated, premade, fresh greenery centerpiece is the perfect way to spread holiday cheer.

Adding DIY Christmas Elements to Your Centerpiece

Bring the beauty of nature indoors with fresh greenery, poinsettias, and eucalyptus sprigs. You can lay them directly on the table as a runner or arrange them in glass vases for a fragrant and visually appealing centerpiece.

Adding candy canes to your tablescape is a joyful way to sweeten your dining room table. Add peppermints to thrifted glassware or scatter them with white and red tea lights across your table settings. Natural elements, such as magnolia floral arrangements or glass vases filled with faux cranberries, make for an unusual but alluring table setting.

Choosing the perfect holiday centerpieces can be a fun and rewarding part of Christmas decorating. Whether you opt for the rustic charm of pinecones, the serene allure of a Winter Wonderland, or the natural beauty of fresh greenery and poinsettias, your Christmas table centerpiece will undoubtedly be the most festive touch to your holiday gatherings.
