Winter Centerpiece

I was so depressed about taking down my Christmas decorations that I turned Monday into a “get things done” marathon. I went a little crazy making our apartment homey…

One of my goals for 2017 is to decorate my apartment, but I don’t think the intent was to do the entire thing in one day. I’m pretty sure Stephen wanted me to “power down” around 11:30.

While I didn’t accomplish everything on my list, but I did manage to create this super cute winter centerpiece. It’s not Christmas but still has a winterish feel.

We received this marble and glass cheese dome as a wedding present and I’m totally obsessed with it. It currently is holding candles and not cheese, but I just love the elegance it adds to my table. I put it on top of this lazy susan that we also got as a wedding present.

I stopped by Hobby Lobby and got three white candles in various sizes. Then I took a trip to their floral department (they’re having a sale right now, by the way!) and picked up fake moss, cotton, and pinecones. After arranging them on the marble platter, I made sure the dome fit over all my items then used the extra on the surrounding surface.

I paired my centerpiece with some cool tones for winter. I just love using wedding presents can you tell?

Then this was the finished product:

Not Christmas, but less painful than having a totally empty, Spode-less table.

How are you recovering during this post-Christmas period? What new decor are you adding to your home?

  • That is truly gorgeous! I wish I had something like that, I have absolutely nothing on my table right now and I’m stuck for ideas, but I might try to make something like this now, hopefully it’ll look at least half as nice as yours

  • Love it! It looks great, and is a good transitional decoration. Using wedding presents is the best!

    • Thank you! It really is. It’s so nice to finally have matching and nice things. I still had everything I was using in college.

  • How pretty!!! I am not ready to take down all of my decorations from the holidays. This gives me some inspiration for some winter decorations.

    • I wasn’t either, but if I didn’t this weekend I wouldn’t have them down until February haha!

  • That turned out really pretty! I like the combo of the white candles with the pinecones!

  • Your table is too cute! We don’t even have a dining room table right now but if we did I’d sure decorate it lmao.

    • We only have the one table, lol! I just try to make it pretty. #SmallApartmentLife

  • Wow, this is so cool – literally. Absolutely wintery. Plus a grand and festive decor. Feels like an extended Christmas – who wouldn’t love to feel the festivity continuing?
