Cranberry Tablescape

Kim Biegacki


I wanted to share an incredibly easy and simple centerpiece for your holiday table. I was trying to be thrifty and didn't know what I wanted to place in the center of my table this year. So, I got to thinking about what I had around the house. I remembered the shallow dish that I had downstairs that I don't use very often and thought it would look pretty with something in it. I then remembered I had 6 bags of fresh cranberries in the refrigerator. All I had to do was go and buy some floating candles. Simple to put together and yet very elegant too.

Merry Christmas to you all!

How to Make Cranberry Tablescape


  1. Decide what you have to work with and how much space you have on your table. You could go really big with this or just small like I did.
  2. I had a shallow bowl that I used but you can choose anything. If using jars I would place at least 3 in the center of your table.
  3. Fill with water, add your cranberries and then lastly gently place your floating candles in with the cranberries.
  4. Light your candles and your centerpiece is done.
