Proof that nearly any container can be turned to holiday use, these pretty white pumpkins (left over from a Thanksgiving table) get a new look with holly and amaryllis. Simply insert a vase into the pumpkin, fill with water, and add your arrangement. A bow ties the red and white together.
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.
Create a custom vase or plant pot by attaching holiday ornaments to the outside of another container. This mix of blue decorations in both shiny and matte textures creates an eye-catching display for an entry table.
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.
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.
Decorate pillar candles with wired crystals, beads, or faux cranberries. Like an accent pillow on a chair, it's a way to add color and interest to a neutral item. A few sprigs of fresh greens make this centerpiece sing of holiday goodwill.
White bowls turned upside-down serve as impromptu pedestals for a small collection of miniature houses in green and white. Swagged below, five white stars hang from a green garland.
A glass bowl filled with bright red cranberries creates both color and texture on the table. They also neatly hide the utilitarian pot overflowing with fragrant paperwhites. Sprigs of fresh holiday greens form a beautiful base underneath the bowl.
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."
