After all of the excesses of Christmas, I am always more than ready for easy decorating in January! I have zero interest in creating anything complicated or time consuming. In other words, I’m all decorated out this time of year!

I literally put this centerpiece together in 5 minutes! You can probably tell how easy it would be to duplicate.
Any kind of a container or basket will do – it doesn’t have to be a dough bowl. I added the long wicker basket under it, because the dough bowl looked lonely and disconnected without a little something else.
After placing the basket and bowl on the table, I added three candles to the center of the bowl. Then I went to town tucking various types of faux greenery in the basket and in the dough bowl. Shhh…don’t tell anyone, but I placed a scrap piece of wood in the bottom of the dough bowl before I added the candles. The bottom of the bowl was too curvy for them to stand up straight. And of course, you can’t even see the board with all of the greenery.
To drive home the winter theme, I added snowflakes that I cut out of white cardstock with a paper punch.
And adding a neutral colored table runner seems to ground the arrangement and help it not seem like it’s “floating” out of nowhere. Make sense?
How about you – are you experiencing decorating burnout now that Christmas is over? If so, try something super easy and see if that doesn’t get you right back into the groove!
