All-Natural Christmas Dinner Centerpiece

All-Natural Christmas Dinner Centerpiece

There can be an awful amount of waste around the holidays. Wrapping paper and temporary plastic ornaments and the like can all add up to a lot of trash in the landfill after all the merriment is said and done. So this year I'm taking an all-natural approach to my Christmas decorating — including my use of Foodstuffs in my holiday decor and my Christmas dinner centerpiece.

Every piece of this festive centerpiece is a product of nature. The candle holder is actually an old log that has been drilled to fit three taper candles. (There's a tutorial for it over at Re-Nest.) I placed that log candle holder on a bed of greens and eucalyptus. Placed around the log are some apples I hollowed out for tea lights. And to add another pop of color to the whole thing, I sprinkled some cranberries around the greens. All said, this centerpiece was quite inexpensive and also easy to make. The eucalyptus and greens add a nice aroma to the centerpiece and candles are always a nice touch to a dinner table. The centerpiece is also short so it won't be in the diners' way as we sup on our Christmas meal.
