Last minute centerpiece

presents wrapped. check.
groceries bought. check.
cookies baked. check.
tree trimmed. check.
cards mailed. check.

table set. uh oh.

If you've wrapped up most of the details for the week,
but forgot to come up with a plan for the holiday table,
try this simple centerpiece.
Grab a bunch of coffee cups from the cupboard.
(or make an IKEA or Target run for some basic, inexpensive white mugs)
Pop a plain ball ornament into each one,
then trail them down the middle of the table.
Pick ornament colors to suit your palette
and you're set to go!


  1. Cute, cute, CUTE! What a fun and easy idea, Christine. If I don't get out for fresh flowers, this will definitely be Plan B! Actually, it would look good with flowers. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. Glad to provide a Plan B....but it would look good all together too!

    Merry, merry Christmas to you!
    (and Happy New Year too)
