Rustic Glam Christmas Centerpiece

I never thought that I would be using the word “Glam” to describe anything in my home, and I still think it’s a bit of a stretch in this case, but I actually kinda love it.
I bought several boxes of white and silver sparkly ornaments this year at Michaels (gotta love that 30% off coupon for Black Friday!). I had every intention of strategically placing them on my tree, but then my kids started decorating it and I couldn’t bring myself to change what they’d done.
I did, however, need a pretty centerpiece for my dining room table so I whipped this up using an old Coca Cola crate, some faux branches from Ikea and my pretty new ornaments.

I layered first a beautiful white table runner with a lace border, then stuffed some burlap on either side to make it look more full.

I added the faux branches, ornaments and pine cones and played around with the arrangement until I was happy with it.

Rustic with a little bit of glam. Just like me.
Not really.
It is however, just like my dining room in it’s simple decked out for Christmas glory.
But you’ll have to wait for the next post to see that.
How’s your Christmas decorating going?

Hi! I'm Kristin and I'm the creative mind behind Yellow Bliss Road, where you'll find tons of recipes, free printables, and a little decor and DIY thrown in for good measure. Life can be complicated, so I am all about simplifying wherever I can - from food to decor to DIY - because I believe that it doesn't have to be elaborate or extravagant to be amazing. I am a single adoptive mom with a daughter in Preschool and a son in Kindergarten. My kids are a handful, I'm exhausted and most days my house is a mess - and I'm okay with that!

    I love it! Perfect blend of nature and sparkle. I have a giveaway going of fuzzy, knitted Christmas trees that would fit perfectly with your style! Check it out when you get a minute.

    So cute! I just pinned it so I won’t forget about it when I decorate my dining room next week! I have some dollar store ornaments that will be perfect.

    Love the look. I think our decorations do say something about our personalities’. My friend is industrial chic, metal edges with ruffles. You can see her using power tools with fancy nail polish on. I bet you are rustic glam! Hmmmmm that would be someone who goes for walks in the woods wearing nice jewelry?????
