Cathy’s Tuesday Tip: Creating The Perfect Dining Room Centerpiece

Choosing a centerpiece can be a little intimidating – after all, it will likely be the focal point of what is probably a very important room in your home!

There are countless ways to create a centerpiece. Sometimes less is more – say, a simple bowl of fruit – and sometimes, the more the merrier! You can be as creative as you like and incorporate a variety of different materials, textures and items of varying sizes.

For a simple yet elegant look, try a sequence of identical items. For example, these three small plants make just the right impact without overwhelming the space and is perfect for a smaller rectangular table.

Looking for a little more drama? Choose larger items that vary in shapes in sizes. One great look is to use natural items such as twigs – they really create a beautiful, tree-like effect! Try putting them in a tall glass hurricane and surround with a couple of candles. This centerpiece makes a wonderfully bold statement!

Another classic centerpiece is a bouquet of flowers! With flowers, it’s really hard to go wrong. This centerpiece is kicked up a notch because of the circular chandelier above that emulates the shape of the full, round bouquet of gorgeous white flowers.
