Table Centerpiece

Saturday is our Holiday Hearts and Homes event at church and I volunteered to decorate one of the tables, as well as do a card workshop.  I wasn’t sure what to do for a centerpiece, but then I found this cake stand at BJ’s.

PB090989It is bright and cheerful, but what I loved about this cake stand, besides the $9.99 price, was the way it can do double duty as a chip and dip plate.  PB090990

I love the polka dots on the flip side and the bowl is nice and deep.  This piece also comes in solid white for year round use.

PB090991 Then I found this wreath to add to the cake plate.

PB090992I filled a crystal compote with mints and a pillar candle.  Of course I had to unwrap them all and add quite a few more than shown here.

PB090993I thought that it looked quite nice and a good size and height for the round table.  I’ll post pictures of the finished tablescape, as well as some of the others.

Looks great! I like the server, especially since it can be used both ways!

That cake plate/chip and dip plate is quite a find!

I really like the wreath accent you are using. It's so festive! :)

Wow. A bachelor like me could use that cake stand/plate-bowl for a lot of different things in my apartment. I like those kinds of useful and cheerful dishes.

What a great centerpiece! I, too, am a real fan of serving pieces that do "double duty" since those large ones take up so much room! Yours is delightful!
