Fruit makes a lovely desert but it also make an elegant centerpiece and holiday decor. Why not use what nature has provided us with ! Use apples, cranberries, nuts, pomegranates, pine cones and oranges to deck your house this holiday!
The hue is so rich and festive and they are available in abundance at this time of the year.
Make a topiary with cranberries or strawberries or float some in water along with floating candles. I love the frozen wreath! How unusual!
Take a walk in the woods to collect pine cones or just buy a bag from your neighborhood craft store. They make wonderful centerpieces . don't you love the smell of pine cones!
who knew creating a centerpiece could be as easy as adding apples to a glass vase around candle or plain arranging apples and flowers on a cake pedestal. I love the idea of adding the mini christmas trees in an urn with apples around it. It would be a great centerpiece for a country christmas!
Carve out an opening and place a votive candle in an Orange or make swirly patterns with cloves. add some oomph to a candle centerpiece by surrounding with dried orange slices!
I love the nut topiary ! Add a ribbon around the topiary to match your other holiday decor and you are all set.
Enjoy decorating !
