Summer centerpieces


If you have never put a centerpiece at home or in your garden during summer, you’ve surely noticed that in some restaurants or cafes they usually use table centerpieces both inside and in the terraces. Have you realized what a great feeling that is?

Small elements can make our experience in a certain place much more pleasant and welcoming, so do not hesitate to create your own table centerpieces, also in summer, betting on the flowers and plants that are most common during that season.


Roses, dahlias, hydrangeas, wild daisies… Summer gives us the opportunity to enjoy wonderful flowers that can become part of our centerpiece. Look at the photographs that we have brought so that you can create your own centerpieces. We hope they will be your source of inspiration.

As we mentioned before, you can combine, inside the centerpiece, other flowers with decorative elements that will accompany such flowers. You can focus on these element as well. Think that there must always be details that make the centerpiece we have created shine even more, that draw more attention but that don’t convey a negative image.


It is also an opportunity to get creative by making crafts, to recycle a little bit and come up with original vases, some simple as these boats but you can also give them touches of painting. Or you can add a simple touch, such as a bow or a stem of a plant that you can tie around the can. That way you’ll have a vase carefully made by yourself and personalized.


For summer tables you can never miss a candle that creates that magical and romantic atmosphere. One option is to use a vase that is not very high, or even a wide glass. There you can place decorative stones as a foundation and put a candle of a light color like blue, green or pink, and that can also be scented.

In summer we also find lavender flowers. Moreover, in some places you can still find heather and flowering rosemary. Their colors can vary and the aroma is spectacular. Thus, they can be a perfect way to create an ideal centerpiece.

Christmas table centerpieces


When Christmas arrives there is this feeling of joy most of the houses are filled with. We can also feel this while being at our table through the decoration. The decoration for this time of the year always consists on beautiful Christmas table centerpieces.


The ideas that first come to mind are many, but we suggest you choose all of them: candles, moss, pineapples, and other natural elements and colors that are highly linked to this time of the year.


We consider elements to decorate a table at Christmas a nice tablecloth, glassware, special tableware and centerpieces. These are the final touch to give your table that fascinating look that evokes encounters, toasts and happiness in a few days that are so special.


Whether these elements are flowers, ornaments that have to do with Christmas or candles, they will all give their special touch to a celebration that is perhaps the most important one for familias and that will be useful if we want to make the Christmas spirit to be felt so much more.

Perhaps the most typical or traditional is the centerpiece that has pine branches or branches of mistletoe. You can’t forget to add a candle and some other detail like pineapples or a Christmas wreath. These can be found in stores that specialize in decoration before Christmas but we can also try to do them ourselves. It is simple and we will save some money.


Look at the traditional centerpiece above. Although you might think it’s too elaborate it is actually very easy to do.
Materials you will be needing: mistletoe or pine (you can find plant remains in any Christmas market), red candles, pine cones that you can paint with glitter or snow spray. For the base we can use a tray, a plate or any bowl.

The key will be to fill it well with pine so that we can’t see anything and then place the two red candles in the middle. The pineapples can be glued and you can also add some flowers or a red bow if you want. You will see how beautiful your creation is and you will realize that it wasn’t that hard to do.

On the other hand, if you want Christmas centerpieces to be original, you can choose a centerpiece such as one that’s been made with some tree ball ornaments for Christmas that were left after having decorated the tree. You can choose to place ball ornaments of different colors or similar and warm shades.

Candles are perhaps key ornaments when it comes to this kind of centerpieces. If you want you can follow the following piece of advice: it’s better to choose to place white, red or gold balls and not to mix other colors. The best option will always be to add two or three balls on a mistletoe or pine base, so it won’t look like there are too many things on the table.
