Winter centerpieces

These frosty candles were brushed with glue or Mod Podge and rolled in Epsom salt.  That's vintage plastic greenery!
 Today I thought I would show a few winter centerpieces that I've used for my dining room table in the past.  Inspiration is always good! (In fact, I could use some myself right now!)  I'll just put in a few photos and captions.
Winter centerpiece used last year with a wintry tablecloth and glittery house and tree under a small cake dome.
A closer look at the same centerpiece, which I had also used during the Christmas season with a Christmas tablecloth.
I've had this glass dish for some time.  It looks carved of ice.  I added these dimensional vintage-y snowflakes (they are stiffened, glittery cream felt with tinsel balls at the center) and a red and white jingle bell.
After seeing another blogger find inspiration from this source, I got this idea from a winter scene on a Marjolein Bastin card.  Faux apples, real pine cones and silk ivy.

Hope you've enjoyed these simple ideas.  I'm linking up with Sandi's No Place Like Home at Rose Chintz Cottage.


  1. The little frosty house under the cloche is very cute and the apples with the pine cones are nice a centerpiece too. Thanks for sharing, Mrs T.


  2. Lots of charming ideas. I like the apples and pinecones. Hope that I can remember it!

  3. I'm glad you like the ideas, ladies! My centerpiece at the moment is ultra simple -- a dollar store lantern and a pair of tiny cardinals. When we put the Christmas decor back in the attic, I will retrieve the "winter and snowmen" tote and see what else I might put together for the rest of the winter. (Which I do believe is only getting started up here ...)

  4. These are all very festive!

  5. Thanks, Bernideen! For many years I have always had *something* for a centerpiece on the table in our dining area. It helps me to pay attention to keeping the table clear of extraneous items like newspapers, mail, or keys. So I enjoy figuring out simple seasonal centerpieces, mostly from things I have on hand.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
