Decorations that serve as centerpiece does not necessarily have to be complicated and expensive. Using a big cylindrical clear vase, and adding cute things inside like balls or beads, it can really be as magical and beautiful as this!

Creating beautiful decorations can never be as hard as they actually seem, some people just buys the ones that are ready made on department stores, but for people who wants to create an original look for their homes prefer mixing and matching maybe old decors, or innovating with whatever trinkets they have at home. But of course, all this is nothing compared to the beautiful memories we are able to make during Christmas and everyday with the people we love and care for! With that, we wanna greet you, Happy Holidays! See also 20 Christmas Table Setting Design Ideas.
