I would like a centerpiece to use on the table for Christmas dinner, aside from your standard candles or flowers. It needs to be fairly inexpensive, and not take a lot of time or special skill to put together.
I ended up placing the wreath in the center of the table, with a large crystal bowl in the center. In the middle, I placed a glass cylinder, that I filled with strands of white and silver beaded garland. There were white and silver ornaments around the wreath, and I filled the cylinder with fresh cranberries, sprigs of greenery, and floated a candle on top.
That sounds like it looked very festive HouseMouse, how creative! I saw someone once put fresh cranberries in a glass bowl with a large, pillar candle in the middle. They then added water to the top of the cranberries. It was very pretty.
