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 dΓ©cor 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!
