We’re counting down to Christmas with a new holiday party tip, decorating idea or DIY project every day until December 25. Miss a day? See all the posts here.

Holiday meals call for a little extra attention to the table, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot on a professional floral arrangement.  This year, try simple table decorations using items you probably already have on hand.

Holiday Table Setting Ideas

The focal point of this sparkling table centerpiece is a Christmas tree fashioned from Boxwood clippings tucked into a white mug, but you could create the same look with clippings from your tree or from a shrubbery in your yard. Leftover ornaments and evergreen clippings arranged on a serving tray complete the look.

    Beautiful table decoration! I never thought it would be useful to get some green trimmings right from your own garden bushes to make a mini-Christmas tree for the dining table decoration. Thank you for this idea.
