5 Alternative Centerpieces You'd Want for Your Dining Area
Create a stunning focal point that can add charm and pizzazz to your space
To liven up a plain dining area, many homeowners use table runners or set up a beautiful centerpiece. This common sight usually features a fruit bowl, a tray of decor pieces, or a group of chic entertaining accessories. More often than not, you will find something similar when you visit other homes.
If you are looking into giving this spot an upgrade—whether for special get-togethers or daily meals, here are easy ideas that you can work on:
Bring a warm and inviting country feel to the table by working with a woven tray. Use it to hold salt and pepper shakes, decor, and more. Make it extra special by repurposing an old ceramic pitcher into a vase.

If you love the idea of recycling, you can work on an old pitcher with an interesting and beautiful shape. Paint it in your chosen color—we suggest opting for white to create a classic and sophisticated feel. Once it's ready, you can use it to display fresh flowers.

Aside from woven baskets and ordinary fruit bowls, you can work with tall glass jars or huge glass jars with lids. Fill it with fruits like oranges, apples, and lemons. The colors of these fruits will catch the attention of guests and brighten up the area.

For a rustic and vintage approach, you can work with a three-tier cake stand that can hold treats, fruits, and a few ceramics. If you love serving coffee, tea, and pastries, you can fill your cake stand with mini plates, teacups, and even small potted plants for a refreshing feel.

Who knew mirrors can work for your centerpiece, too? If you have an old ornate mirror lying around the house, get it out and clean it thoroughly. Use it as a tray and fill it with interesting accessories and a repurposed mason jar filled with faux flowers. Your guests will surely ask about this surprising touch and will kickstart a conversation over snacks and refreshments.
