8 Quick and Easy Ideas for Holiday Tabletop Decor

by Chris NeaseDecember 20, 2013

If you’re in need of some last minute tabletop decorating ideas for the holiday, I’ve rounded up 8 ideas for holiday tabletop decor that are simple and easy to pull together in a flash. What makes these so great is that they all start with things you probably already have, like silver trays and bowls, glass vases and cloches, candles, pinecones, and of course, Christmas ornaments. These looks will make terrific centerpieces for dining tables, or as a focal point for side and coffee tables. And you can customize any idea using your own color scheme.

Add a bit of Nature

If you enjoy adding natural elements to your holiday decor, these looks are for you! It takes little more than greenery and festive ribbon to dress up a pillar candle like this one on The Perfect Palette.

Pinecones and silver look perfectly at home under a glass dome via Country Living.

Place some mini trees on a wood base and top with a glass cloche, like this one at Terrain.

Beautiful flowers on a tray paired with pinecones and candles look great all season long, from Yellow Bliss Road.

Make Ornaments the center of attention

When you’re short on ideas or time, just rally up all those extra ornaments you haven’t hung on the tree! Dress up a wooden bowl by filling it full of colorful ornaments like this, from Paige Knudson.

For a more formal look, fill a silver bowl with ornaments that are in 1 or 2 colors. We love this one from Redhead Can Decorate .

Can’t decide between flowers and ornaments? Use both in a tiered display like this on Celebrations At Home.

Go for the gold and pile on the ornaments! Fill up a glass vase that’s placed on a tray, and then surround it with even more ornaments like this from Our Southern Home.

All these ideas will take you 5 minutes to pull together. It’s a great way to spread the holiday cheer throughout the house. Which one do you want to try first?
