A Pretty Lemon Christmas Centrepiece

With a few simple supplies you can put together the most simple and pretty Christmas Centrepiece!

You know how sometimes you throw some things into a bowl because you don’t know where else to put them, then you look over one day and realize that everything in said bowl actually looks really pretty?

That’s how this centrepiece came about.  It’s true.

I had one bowl overflowing with lemons, so I had a few strays that I ended up putting in this long wooden bowl that I keep on my dinner table.  And I had some pine cones and pieces of Christmas tree left over from another project I was working on, so I threw them in there too only because I didn’t know what else to do with them at the moment…let’s just be honest…I was too lazy to throw them out…

Then one moment I looked over and…well would you look at that?!  How pretty!

So I just lined up everything to make it a little neater, then added a few more greens and some cranberries.  Done.  It looks so fabulous on my table…a little festive bowl of sunshine.  Love.

Again I say, simple is best.  It doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated or perfect to be beautiful.

Have a very Merry day!

    Hi Jo-Anna,
    This is my first time to visit and I found your blog so inspiring. Wow! lemon? I never thought of this.
    I absolutely love the idea. I must say, I have a bowl or a wood kind of bowl from where I came originally, The Philippines.
    We use called “mankala game”. I really have to dig the attic or the garage to find this badly §;-)

    Thank you for the inspiration and reminding it.

    Happy week,
    /CC girl

    But if the lymph is sluggish and there is an overload of wastes, a blockage will occur causing skin problems, water retention, illness or infection.
    Workouts that concentrate on the chin and jaw muscles can be extremely
    effective in removing your double chin without surgery.
    A hole raised up, inverted and placed upon a
    column of metal. Without staying “optimally fit”, we may all be subject to the dreaded “Double Chin” especially
    as we age. It is time to reinvent yourself and become the person you’ve always wanted to be.
