Elevating the Holiday Table Centerpiece

Holiday Table Centerpiece

I am always searching for ways to create a table centerpiece that does not impede dinner guests’ line of sight. Most decorations which are scaled large enough for a big dining room table are too tall to keep on the table during dinner.

This hanging holiday table centerpiece solves that problem!

By hanging the decorations from the chandelier, it creates height without limiting table function.

This arrangement is created out of plastic Christmas ornaments hung with curling ribbon. I recommend leaving the ends of the ribbon uncut until you are satisfied with the ornament placement. It took me a little readjusting to make it feel balanced.

Last year I did a similar centerpiece using dainty glass Christmas balls hung by a clear thread. It turned out very pretty, but due to lack of coordination on my part several ornaments were broken.

I am a big fan of plastic…

What do you think?
