Easy Christmas Centerpiece

I love Christmas decorations. I probably appreciate them more now than I ever did as a child. There’ s something about decorations that make me giddy with Christmas spirit, and this year I may have gone a little decor crazy.

Every year my mom’s side of the family has a Christmas Eve party. The host rotates from year to year, and this year my grandmother has the honor. She asked me to help her come up with a unique Christmas-y centerpiece for the table, so we channeled our inner Martha Stewarts (and consulted Google) to come up with this:

Simply start with an empty glass bowl and an assortment of round ornaments. We chose to go with a variety of colors in two sizes.

Then I layered the ornaments in the bowl, alternating colors and sizes to avoid empty spaces as much as possible.

Easy as pie! I love the colorful look of this one, but I bet a color scheme (red and gold, maybe?) would look gorgeous too!
