Lots of things are eye catching at Christmas time. Of course everyone loves the Christmas lights and the ornaments on the trees. The candles that people put up in their windows, and the often massive outside decorations that people adorn their houses with are impossible to ignore.
Nativity scenes, and silver lanes all aglow certainly lead to many a late night journey to look at just what other people are decorating with. For a host or hostess of a big Christmas dinner, no decoration is quite as important as the centerpiece for their dining table.
You can, of course, buy a centerpiece to complete the perfect look for your holiday gathering. However, it is much more personal to create your own. Here are a couple of easy ideas to get the ball rolling on how to create your own special and personal Christmas centerpiece for your own holiday gathering.
A very basic idea is to hand paint a ceramic pot for a Christmas like plant like a poinsettia. Get acrylic paints and some stencils and paint a design that goes with the table cloth and serving items on to a ceramic pot. Around Christmas time, a lot of poinsettias come in a flimsy plastic container. That entire container can fit right inside the right pot, and neatly keep the dirt out of everyone’s way while mixing the old with the new to create an eye catching conversation piece for everyone.
