Christmas Table Centerpieces

Creating these Christmas Table Centerpieces takes just a few simple supplies. You can use them down the center of the table, add them to a buffet or give them as gifts.

Setting the table for Christmas morning breakfast, or your holiday party is sometimes the last thing you think about. Keeping it simple and easy is key during the holidays.

The red and white theme goes perfectly with the candy canes. You could also use some of the colorful candy canes that are available now, they come in a variety of colors.

For this Christmas table setting, we kept it kid friendly, but I think these centerpieces would go perfectly for any age.

The place setting starts with a simple red paper plate, and then a fun Santa face plate on top. Red silverware are inside a red napkin, tied with a candy cane to match the centerpieces. Then a printable name tag.

You can find the FREE Printable tags on the Christmas printables page. I used tented cards and simply cut them to size.

Then more candy canes were added to the Santa buckets for take home treats.

A full list of supplies is at the bottom of this post.

Supplies for Christmas Table Centerpieces

Here is what we used to create the Christmas Table Centerpieces

  • Containers – any size vase or container will work, however I did find the shorter one to work best because of the length of candy canes. These containers are plastic, they are from Walmart and come with a lid and handle, which we removed.
  • Candy Canes – we used 2-3 boxes per container, the amount you need will depend on the size of vase or container
  • Ribbon
  • Floral Foam
  • Floral stems

    You can use recycled tin cans for this – they are a perfect height, you wouldn’t get as many candy canes around the circumference though.

    1. Great idea Becky! Thanks for sharing!
