Make an Easy Christmas Centerpiece

I have been busy creating some new Christmas arrangements. All are easy, easy because that is what I like to do. 

So take a look and see if this arrangement is something you would like to make. (I will show the others in separate posts.) 

My house has bins and baskets of Christmas décor all over the please ignore what's going on in the background of my images. I hope to clean the house soon! 

Here is the first arrangement I made...with things I already had. 

I purchased this silver (aluminum) bowl last year. And I have used it all year long! It has sported  a variety of arrangements from simple to more contrived.

I love that I can just lay sprigs of greenery, or fruit, or ornaments in it and have a cute and easy arrangement. Of course a formal arrangement looks great too. 

Ok, let's start at the beginning. 

I placed a few sprigs of red berries into my bowl to create a base. (If I were a "real" florist I would probably start with a foam base. ha!)

Next, I added some faux holly with berries.

I played up the "east-west" shape of my bowl by placing my sprigs beyond the edge of the bowl. 

And finally I scouted a Christmas bin for some pretty red ornaments. They seem like huge red berries. Fun!

I am not sure where it will call home for this Christmas season. But it will fit in I am sure. 

My table has three arrangements that I have put together in the last few days! 

I put all of my Christmas storage bins in the floor of the great room...then I begin playing!

I hope you are inspired to make a pretty bowl or basket after seeing how easy it can be. Easy is what I prefer. ha!
