There are many ways to decorate your table for the holidays. With so many options, what should you do? What type of centerpiece should be at the center of it all? It can be difficult to know where to start. The good news is that there are many options out there, and there isn’t one correct answer. To help you begin selecting a beautiful centerpiece, here's everything you need to know about choosing the perfect piece, whether you're planning to showcase your home decor in the dining room, living room, entryway, kitchen table, or any other tablescape in your home.
When choosing our centerpiece, consider all of the different designs and options that are available to you. We specialize in offering many styles of hand-made evergreen centerpiece arrangements for all occasions! Take a look at our wide variety of designs. A good place to start is with our Best Seller Centerpieces. These include our classic, tried-and-true products that have been customer favorites for years. You simply cannot go wrong with these best sellers.
When selecting a centerpiece, the first thing to think about is the size of your dining room table, coffee table, and what other table decor will be accompanying the Christmas centerpiece such as succulents or floral arrangements. You don't want to go too large or you won't have enough space for people to pass large platters, plates, and glasses of wine around without bumping into it. On the flip side, if the centerpiece is too small, you might end up with a crowded table and the centerpiece will go unnoticed. The best thing to do is take stock of your space, along with the other table decorations you plan on having, such as table runners, glass vases, candle holders, tea lights, flower arrangements, or other dining room decor.
If you have a large space or table, our Grand Holiday centerpiece is perfect for making a statement when you have plenty of room. This classic arrangement is a stunning crowd pleaser! For smaller rooms or tables, our Small Holiday Centerpiece is an elegant traditional choice. A fun and farmhouse-inspired design for smaller spaces is our Home for the Holidays centerpiece which also makes a fun and wonderful gift.
In addition to the size of your table, you need to take a look at its shape as well. A round table will look different with a centerpiece than a square or rectangular one would. Generally speaking, if you have a long and narrow dining room table go for something tall and thin, whereas if it's round or square, consider something more short and wide. It's important to consider if you want the centerpiece to be glam and become the focal point of the dining table centerpiece or if you want it to blend in with other table setting items such as placemats or serving trays.
Once you know the size and shape of your table, it is time to pick out a centerpiece that is in keeping with the rest of the room. Are you trying to host a classic greenery Christmas with red and green decorative accents, a farmhouse decor theme with flower vase hydrangea fillers, or DIY votive candles, or are you trying to host a modern-themed party with rose gold mason jars, pillar candles, or other modern dinner table accessories? Your table centerpiece should reflect your dining room's mood and complement the rest of your decor. Luckily we have a wide range of designs to choose from in our centerpiece collection.
Finally, before you settle on a centerpiece, take a look at the embellishments in it. Suppose you are going for an elegant holiday dinner. In that case, something simple can be quite beautiful, such as orchids, tulips, or eucalyptus, clear glass candles, clear place cards, and neutral-colored tablecloths. On the other hand, if your family celebrations tend to be bold, go with something that has more detail and color, such as bright red candlesticks or bright mercury glass accessories. The choice is ultimately up to you and how traditional or modern you want your table to feel.
Whichever type you choose, it should reflect the mood of the day and your dining room style. Make sure it suits the size and shape of your table and any other decor in the space. With all this taken into consideration, choosing a Christmas table centerpiece should be a breeze!
