This glass vase is filled with gold items...notice the varied sizes which makes the display more interesting.
I'm not a big fan of black but this is a different type of centerpiece. Notice the varied heights of the display adding visual appeal.
This one uses two mini tress and a bowl of apples...as you can see this is set in a French style kitchen using mainly white and red as the color scheme.
This is one of my faves....the simple glass candle stick holders repurposed as a centerpiece...again varied heights......the plain red balls have been decorated with gold glitter paint to spell NOEL...but use your imagination and I'm sure you can think of a variety of Christmas words that might work well....JOY comes to mind!!
