Holiday Table Setting - Easy Centerpiece
Here’s a quick and easy Christmas centerpiece idea that can pulled together in minutes and is guaranteed to deliver a soft elegant glow at the table. All you need is:
- 1 cake stand
- 3 pillar candles of different heights
- 1 garland or small wreath
The cake stand:
I have 2 different heights of cake stands so I tried them both on my table to see which height would work best. The shorter one turned out to be the best. It’s high enough to create an interesting focal point on the table and low enough for guests to see each other from across the table.
Pick a color that complements your linen and tableware. I chose red because it adds a festive touch to my table and it goes well with my black and white tablescape theme.
I used a garland, which was easy to cut to fit the size of the plate. You could also use a small wreath.
I displayed 3 candles of different heights next to each other to create a cozy display. I tried 4 candles but it looked too crowded, and displaying only 2 candles was too sparse.
If you have young kids around, you can use battery-operated candles instead of real ones. You still get the warm light without worrying about the safety of the children.
