A chocolate candy centerpiece is a cute and clever idea for decorating any holiday table!
You could make something really simple or go "all out" and have everyone wondering at your creativity and design. :) It's really up to you and what look you are trying to accomplish.
Maybe you're not the do-it-yourself type or you don't have the time to spend making a chocolate candy decoration. No problem, if you would rather just buy a candy centerpiece, we've got some ideas for you, too.
So, let's get started. Try your hand at one of these simple, but lovely, decorating or gift ideas for your next special occasion.
I guess the simplest and quickest candy centerpiece idea is to "use what you have" and add some chocolate to it!
My sister has always been one for decorating the house and table to suit each season or special occasion. Autumn leaves, pumpkins, and gourds in the fall; snowmen, sleds, and snowflakes in the winter, etc.
It gives her home a warmer and more inviting feeling for her family and her guests, and I just love it! You really don't have to spend a fortune on seasonal decorations, either.
Shop the clearance items as each season draws to close and you'll have your centerpiece decorations all ready for the next year and will just have to add the chocolate. :)
An extra handy tip: Get yourself a few of those plastic storage containers with lids to keep your decorations clean, neat, and easy to locate year after year. It will make
You don't have to spend a lot of money on making a chocolate candy decoration. In fact, you can limit your expenditure to just the chocolate.
Like with this simple chocolate egg and candy coated chocolates (like M&M's or Smarties), you can arrange your chocolate bits and pieces all on their own to make a chocolate only centerpiece.
That may not work for every sort of chocolate candy, and consider the fact that you may need to move your candy centerpiece at a moments notice. Having your chocolate in some form of container will make that task a breeze.
Do you have
a pretty dish
in your cupboard?
I'll bet you do!
Fill a dish with your favorite chocolate treats to create a fast and easy chocolate centerpiece that your guests will enjoy. They may not oooh and aaaah, perhaps, but they'll enjoy the fact that chocolate is at their fingertips!
But, you don't have to leave the dish looking bland or forlorn in the center of the table. What else do you have in your cupboards or hiding around your place?
Have a good scout around to see what you have on hand to tuck under, around, or through your chocolate candy centerpiece to give it a little more pizazz. :)
Keep in mind that something as simple as the use of color or alternate textures can add an extra dimension or tie in a theme, whether it be a holiday, season, sporting event, or other celebration.
