The Christmas season is full of love, joy and delicious food. Decorating your home for the Christmas season is one of the best ways to share the love you have for this time of year with your friends and family. Homemade centerpieces are one way to celebrate the Christmas season. Centerpieces make beautiful gifts for your loved ones or you can place them on every table in your home to spread a little cheer.

Include some other thematic items in the bowl for a decorative touch, such as small ornaments, transparent Mylar paper, ribbons or small glass marbles that are green and red. Perhaps a small Christmas tree with mini lights and mini ornaments would brighten your kitchen table. You could get a mirrored plate, a charger plate or a modern square one in red, green, white or blue as your base.
