20130114-231350.jpgEvery Christmas, I try to do a different theme for the dinner table, and this time I really wanted something “woodsy”…  So I purchased some a moss runner from Joann’s, added a low vase  with white hydrangeas (wrapped in moss “ribbon”), a few white pillar candles, evergreen branches, Christmas tree slices (*see note below), and an amazing vintage set of deer figurines that I bought off of etsy.

I used a white tablecloth as a base, layered with a white lace tablecloth to give the table a little more texture.  Then I used extra “tree slices” to write the names of my dinner guests, sort of like a rustic place card.  The overall look was simple but really nice, I was pleased and my family was pretty impressed!  Not a bad deal for possibly the easiest centerpiece ever!

Do you do the same centerpiece every year or do you try different themes too?  I would love to hear about them/see your ideas!

* For the Christmas tree “slices”, I asked my local Lowes if I could grab a few out of their discard pile when I got my Christmas tree cut.  They gave them to me for free, and I was able to get a variety of sizes, just perfect for giving height to the pillar candles and fun place cards for my guests!
