10 Beautiful & Inspiring Christmas Centerpiece Ideas

One of my favorite spots to decorate for Christmas is the table. Since all of our family and friends up gathering around it, sometimes more than once throughout the season, it’s very rewarding to put together a table setting that will be enjoyed by everyone. It really helps set the mood for the holiday and get everyone into the festive spirit.

The centerpiece is what brings the whole table setting together. In fact, if you aren’t sure what you want to do with your table setting, a good idea is to start with the centerpiece and then let it inspire the rest of the table. For a Christmas centerpiece, there are so many great elements to work with that you can easily suit it to your own personal style and make it your own.

Here are 10 Christmas centerpiece ideas that range from simple to extravagant, rustic to glamorous. They offer some great inspiration for concepts, elements, and color schemes that can help you find a direction for your own.
