How to Use Simple Decor Pieces to Create Multiple Holiday Centerpieces

There is enough to worry about during the holidays.  Taking the time to create brand new table decor for every holiday dinner probably falls to the bottom of the long to-do list. Simple and easy decor is always my go-to, so table centerpieces is no different.

I have a few basic decor pieces that stay on the table all the time.  They’re classic and timeless and can easily transition from holiday to holiday. So, let’s talk about how to take these basic pieces and create a simple tablescape for the holidays and then quickly transition it to a fun New Year’s Eve party!

Here are the basics we’re going to work with:

Starting with a basic, metallic tone or neutral color is key.  This will help to create a simple palette that can easily transition between holidays and themes.  You can find similar pieces for all these basics (plus some great holiday specific additions) on Wayfair.

Once you have your basics all you need to do is add some pops of holiday!

For my Christmas table I chose greenery and bottle brush trees as my holiday specific items.  I used some magnolia leaves as my table runner and base for the tablescape.  I used the bottle brush trees to bring in a few new holiday colors, choosing trees of different shapes and sizes. Personally, I don’t like really large centerpieces that block your view of your friends’ and family’s faces.  I like to keep things low and simple. So, for Christmas, I chose some artificial pine branches that came with some fun pine cones included and simply stuck the stems into each vase.

Boom, and done!

When it’s time to transition to a new holiday, just take the decor back down to your basics.

Then add in new holiday specific accent pieces.

For a New Year’s Eve party I chose to add in black and more pops of gold.  A basic black table runner (that could easily be used for a Halloween party, too!) became my base. I used a simple fringe banner as my next layer to fill in the center of the table. I removed the greenery from the vases and filled them with some back tissue paper, topping them with some fun twirly gold accents (which are actually Christmas ornaments so you could totally use them for multiple holidays!).  Add some fun party hats and champagne glasses and, again, BOOM, done!

It doesn’t have to take an elaborate plan to make a big statement. Start with your basics that can transition from holiday to holiday and, when the time comes, add in some party specific accents.

Now, who wants to come over and party?!
