When I create a centerpiece for my table I always start with something that has height or I make the height with books, baskets, bowls, etc. In this instance I started with a faux pine tree that was inside of this old white ironstone bowl filled with wonderfully scented pine cones and extra pine greenery and added plain ornaments for a pop of shimmer and color.
Next, is when I experiment with other different heights as I did here with candle stands and candle pillars. I never have things the same height, just doesn't flow together at all. Then I added other table fillers such as berries and pine on the table. I love these 2 ceramic deer I purchased from Target. They look great here with the white bowls and dishes on the table. Angled them, added a few touches of more ornaments on the table and tada!
I do hope that you enjoyed my lil table setting for the holidays. I just can't wait until my husband makes my harvest table for the mill. I already gave him measurements of how big I want. We measured at the mill where I want it to go so there will be enough room for it. Well that's another story for another day. Hope that you have a wonderful day. There are some beautiful ideas for decorating floating around in blog land that It is so easy to gather inspiration for your home. Have a wonderful week. See you soon to show you my living room, so I'd better get crackin!
