3 Ideas for Winter Centerpieces

CandleIf you enjoy beautiful housing in a scenic yet easily accessible area then the Trestles Apartments in Raleigh is sure to suit your tastes. Both one and two bedroom apartments are available and aesthetic amenities include fireplaces, balconies and vaulted ceilings.

At the same time, no place is really home until you’ve decorated it for the season. Here are three ideas for winter centerpieces that may suit your fancy.

Candles

Candles make excellent centerpieces and they can be used in a variety of ways. A candle in a metallic lantern is great if you want a centerpiece with a traditional feel. Other alternatives include having several tea candles floating in a bowl of water or placing a large candle in a glass tray and decorating the tray with pine sprigs, pine cones and/or holly.

Baubles

Baubles can convey a large variety of sentiments. Gold and silver are elegant and classy while orange and red have a warm, autumnal feeling. Hot pink and blue give a room a lively flair while green and red are traditional December colors. Place the baubles in a glass container and watch them transform your living or dining room area.

Flowers

Floral arrangements make lovely centerpieces. You can use either real or fake flowers; however, fake flowers are the best option if you suffer from allergies and/or want a long-lasting centerpiece. Choose flowers that match with room’s overall style of decor and the holiday sentiments you want to convey. At the same time, don’t be afraid to think outside the box and choose an original arrangement that reflects your unique personality.
