…quick fix series: the centerpiece

Yes, it is a little thing and may seem insignificant, but a centerpiece actually can say alot about a home and the people that live in it. It could be as simple as a beautiful fruit bowl, but it is an opportunity to create something interesting in the middle of your table – a popular meeting place.

It could be a collection of pots with moss balls or flowers. (Just don’t use silk flowers. Blak!)

An old crate or dough bowl, of course is always rustic and interesting.

You could put some of your favorite items in a little cluster like this table. Try to be monochromatic and edit as you go.

If you use something like an old crate or wood bowl then you can switch out decor based on your holiday. I have grain sack apples and love them so much I just leave them all year round on my dining table. On my kitchen table I love white pumpkins in October or even a stuffed bowl of red apples in Fall.

All of these examples are really simple and elegant. You don’t want to clutter the middle of your table, you just want it to look inviting.
