Small packages get the look of luxury when wrapped with golden papers and wide satin ribbons. Your guests will be delighted to find such a party favor at their place setting during a holiday dinner.
Here's another centerpiece idea that can easily be customized to fit a decorating theme. Fill it with pinecones and natural elements or pine boughs and sparkling ornaments. Or add miniature trees, cellophane bags of candy, or even rows of cupcakes -- whatever you like that will make a pretty display.
Silky ribbons tied to the back of each chair add decoration and holiday color to the table.
Collect elements of silver and white for a cool centerpiece look. Arranging items that are high, medium, and low will give the display added interest and personality. Also, pay attention to texture by alternating shiny, rough, and mottled items.
White and red are a classic Christmas combination, so you can't go wrong by pairing white candlesticks with red tapers and fresh greenery for an impressive centerpiece.
Black and white may not be your first thought for holiday decorations, but the look is both fresh and contemporary. Silver mixes perfectly with white flowers and a silver satin bow, while framed sheet music sings out more of this musical theme. Add more holiday style with fresh greenery, or turn it into a New Year's party look with sheet music from "Auld Lang Syne."
