Simple and Pretty Christmas Centrepieces

Make these Pretty Christmas Centrepieces in just minutes with mason jars, evergreen branches, ribbon and cranberries.  Simple and so pretty!

This year we are hosting Christmas at our home!  It’s the first time in a few years that we have actually had Christmas in our own home, and I’m really, really looking forward it.  I can’t wait to have the kids come down stairs from their own rooms, and I can’t wait to fill our fridge (and bellies) with yumminess!

With all the planning that goes into the baking and cooking, I often find that my table settings get overlooked.  I’m running around last minute putting the table together without much thought to how it looks.  Not this year.  I’m planning ahead.  I know I want things simple and rustic so that’s what’s going to happen!

But one thing that I am trying to remember, and instil in my own life is to keep things simple.  It really is so true, that it doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated or perfect to be beautiful!

Simple and pretty decor!

I love mason jars, evergreens, ribbons and cranberries, so why not decorate with them?  They’re easy to find (most of the stuff I had around already), inexpensive to purchase and simple to put together!  Perfect for a simple & pretty dinner table (or an appetizer station or vignette).

I gathered up some greens (actually I hacked the back of our Christmas tree), and supplies for simple mason jar candles, and I got to work.

How to Make Simple and Pretty Christmas Centerpieces:

  • Just wrap some pretty ribbon around the jars.
  • Add some cranberries and a few sprigs of evergreens.
  • Fill up the jar 2/3 full with water.

Scatter some small evergreen branches and fresh cranberries on the table and it’s done!  I really like how it all just works together…the red and green natural elements are so great for this time of year!

  1. That’s such a great look for a table! I like the idea of the floating candle in there. I will definitely have to make these.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I’ve been seeing these gorgeous, intricate, expensive tablescapes all over, and been a bit blue that there is no way I’ll be able to make my table look like that… And you have just made me feel all better. This is pretty Christmas perfection, and I love it. I think I’ll try it 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing at the Sunday Showcase!

    1. Omg! Thank you! These are my all time favorite candies and so hard to find. I cut my dots into 4s (long ways then across ) they were jelly beaned shaped. I used all flavors (one box). They taste exactly like jelly nougats. I’m so happy!
