One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways of decorating for Christmas is using what’s in your own kitchen pantry. Items such as apples, oranges, berries, pomegranates, cinnamon sticks, and pinecones can be pretty, festive, and seasonal. The seventh day of Christmas features a pretty Christmas centerpiece using these readily available pantry items.
Using fruit and greenery to decorate for Christmas is popular in places such as Colonial Williamsburg and historic neighborhoods in the East Coast. It’s a simple look that places emphasis on a low-key holiday that’s less about materialism and more about celebrating with friends and family. You can easily create a similar look by using what items you already have at home or making a quick trip to the grocery store.
All you need is some greenery, fruit, and a couple of candlesticks. This doesn’t have to be a formal arrangement or anything fussy. It’s more of a simple easy centerpiece that’s made from what you’ve gathered. Along with the centerpiece, you can also make a wreath with the same fruits and greenery if you want.
I’ve linked to some trays, bowls, and candlesticks in the widget below if you’re looking for something to display the items in. What are your favorite items to use in Christmas decorating? I’d love to hear about them.
