Creating centerpieces are one of my favorite things to decorate for the holidays. They really dress up dining tables, coffee tables, and end tables. I love getting inspiration from other amazing bloggers, Instagram feeds and Pinterest. However, you don’t have to use expensive items to have a fabulous final product. My friend Michelle, from http://www.borncreative.com, and I are collaborating today to bring you a special post. We both purchased the same tray from Target, but we are each going to decorate it differently. Check out her tray at the above link. This way, you can get multiple ways to style the tray. You will be able to get ideas and see the tray two different ways, but you will also get the advantage of meeting a new blogger who has amazing material. When you are over on her blog, search around and enjoy her motivational pieces that I love so much.
Now lets jump into decorating this beautiful tray. I chose to only use materials I purchased at Target and fill in with items I already had. I wanted to show you that you can have beautiful Christmas decor without breaking the bank. I got the greenery and the candles in the dollar spot at Target. The cranberry hurricane lamp was with the rest of the Christmas decor from Target. They also had one with gold accessories if that is more your style. Let’s get started decorating this tray!
Let’s Get Decorating!
Here are the items I purchased from Target to use in decorating the tray. Most of the items I found in the dollar spot section right when you walk in Target. I always check this section for great deals and cute items.
I started with the largest item in the center and then used the smaller items to fill in.
After adding the hurricane candle holder, I added the greenery. The tiny pinecones made it look more realistic.
You could leave your tray as is. However, If you follow my blog, you know I love mercury glass. I collect it and use it year round, but at Christmas time it makes a huge appearance. I already owned the mercury glass balls, but the candles are from the dollar section at Target.
I hope you got some ideas on how to decorate a centerpiece. If you get a chance, check out Michelle’s site as well. She has tons of great advice and ideas on how to live life to the fullest. Part 2 of my holiday tour will be coming on Wednesday. I hope you noticed my new logo. I have been busy working with Top Shelf Design. They created my fabulous logo and monogram. I’m so happy with the new look. If you’re in need of a design firm; check them out. You won’t be sorry. They are so professional, have a quick turn around time, and made sure I got exactly what I wanted.
