Super-simple but Beautiful

Here at Christmas Place, we are always ready to offer holiday tips to help you create memorable moments to cherish with family and friends.  It’s what we live for!

Here’s a super-simple project – a beautiful candle-and-poinsettia-in-red-sleigh centerpiece for your Christmas table, in just a few easy steps.  I’ll include all the elements, most (but not all*) of them available at the store.

Christmas Sleigh Centerpiece

1.  Assemble your base:

  • Red sleigh (so new, it hasn’t even come over from the warehouse yet, give us a few days)
  • Red candle(s)*
  • Green foam*
  • Green moss*

2:  Next, add…

  • Poinsettia
  • [Red berries]
  • [Red & green crabapples]
  • Green stems with leaves
  • [Frosted cedar stems]
  • Iced holly stems
  • Pine stems
  • Red velvet ribbon
  • Fruit and nuts (not visible in photos)

3.  Mix with:

  • One talented floral designer*
  • Hot glue gun*
  • Wire and chenille stems*

4.  Leave everything alone together for about two hours.  When you return, voilà!

The perfect centerpiece for Christmas dinner – besides the turkey, the ham, and Mom’s sweet potato casserole (with pecans and marshmallows).

    Hi there,

    I am a journalism student at Arizona State University, and I was wondering if Christmas Place would be interested in a guest blog post? I am working on expanding my freelancing experience, and I would love to submit a piece if you guys are interested. I’m open to writing something you assign, or if you’d like me to pitch something, I can do that as well.

    Best,
    Taylor Seely
