Winter Centerpiece


Looking for a simple winter centerpiece for your table?  Look no further than your backyard or a near-by park. I removed the Christmas dinnerware from my breakfast room(below), and needed to replace the center piece. I had these pine cones setting on the kitchen counter in this old wooden bowl, and immediately placed it in the center of the table.  I pulled the candle and berries from the Christmas centerpiece below along with an old hurricane globe that I’ve had under the sink , and in less than 5 minutes I had a center piece.  To give the candle more height in the bowl, I added a small vase to the bottom of the bowl and placed the candle on top of it before setting the hurricane globe.  

Christmas Centerpieces
I love the red with the oak.  As I was putting the centerpiece together, I also thought that I could remove a few of the pine cones and berries, and add in a few red apples or just change the color of the candle and remove the berries.  

I re-purpose items when I can.  I love quick, easy and inexpensive.  If you don’t have a wooden bowl, use a glass or trifle bowl.  You can also substitute the berries with cinnamon sticks or fresh greenery. Stay tuned for possible changes to this simple center piece.
