5 Sweet Centerpiece Ideas for Your Christmas Celebration

Any of these can serve as the center of attraction on your table


What’s your favorite Christmas recipe? Whether it’s a special pasta that your Mom cooks or a sumptuous meat dish that you have mastered—were sure that it’s the star of your Noche Buena come Christmas Eve.

This year, aside from filling the table with mouthwatering dishes, make sure you prep it for a memorable get-together too. Bring out your favorite dinnerware and create a lovely centerpiece that will complete the look of your setup.

Don’t have plans yet? We’ve rounded up five easy ideas that you can do:

When it comes to dessert, nothing beats having leche flan, blueberry cheesecake, and your favorite kakanin on the table! Aside from these all-time favorites, you can also fill a tall glass container with treats and sweets wrapped in colorful wrappers. Turn it into an instant centerpiece by wrapping ribbons around the vase.

Got an old cake stand at home? Repurpose it and use it to display select decor pieces like Christmas balls, ribbons, and pine cones. If your cake stand is a bit plain, choose vibrant-colored pieces to liven it up. You may also spray paint it with a red hue then pair it with white decor.

If you have clear vases or jars in different sizes, you can use it to come up with a simple centerpiece that can create an impact. Prepare ribbons, Christmas balls, and candy canes. Fill each jar with these items before placing it on your table.

Red and white pieces are perfect for this idea—but feel free to experiment with other colors depending on the look and feel that you want to achieve.

We've probably said it a hundred times—mason jars are your best friends—whether you're repotting plants, organizing essentials, or decorating your space.

This Christmas, paint two or three jars with your chosen colors. We especially loved how red and white worked well for the setup above! If you want something new and refreshing, consider working with green, blue, or gold!

If you're looking for the sweetest idea, you may want to recreate this setup. Craft a mini dessert station that can moonlight as your centerpiece. Put a huge clear jar filled with marshmallows and a white mug with candy canes and other sweets on a wooden tray. Decorate the tray with your choice of Christmas balls, ribbons, and other accessories.

Depending on the size of the tray that you intend to use, you can also include a pot of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate as an extra treat.
