Here’s how to put together a quick and easy gorgeous 10 Minute Christmas Centerpiece Tray!
Choose your favorite Christmas ornaments that you’d like to display. You can use ornaments that are the same but I like to mix up the shapes, sizes and colors to keep it interesting!
My favorite ornaments are the ones I also used to decorate my winter woodland glam Christmas tree. They are a combination of sparkly, matte and metallic finishes, snowy white, wintery blue and soft silvery gray. Ga-orgeous!
This is a great way to use antique or vintage ornaments that have been passed on to you or you’ve collected…. or ornaments you’ve collected on your travels!
Once you’ve selected your ornaments choose a pillar candle and a tray. I love to use a large tray to display lots of Christmas ornaments, but you can use any tray you have on hand! This tray is from IKEA – isn’t it pretty?! I love the detail of the patterned sides!
The beautiful pillar candle I used is the Frasier Fir candle from Thymes – it’s simple stunning in a faux bois ceramic holder and has an amazing fresh-cut forest scent of pine! So fitting for the holidays!
I also added a sparkly blue leafy Christmas pick. I just cut off the leaves with wire snips to make mini leaf decorations.
Once you have gathered your candle, tray and Christmas ornaments place the pillar candle in the middle of the tray and fill the tray with your ornaments! Light the candle and enjoy the cozy ambiance of shimmer and candlelight!!
At night I love to cuddle up in my cozy reading spot with a mug of snowflake hot chocolate , listen to Bing Crosby’s “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” (my favorite holiday song!) and admire the reflection of twinkling Christmas tree lights shimmering on this elegant Christmas tray.
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Centerpiece Tray idea and hope you make one to decorate your home!
