Here at Christmas Place, we are always ready to offer holiday tips to help you create memorable moments to cherish with family and friends. It’s what we live for! Here’s a super-simple project – a beautiful candle-and-poinsettia-in-red-sleigh centerpiece for your Christmas table, in just a few easy steps. I’ll include all the elements, most (but not all*) of them available at the store.
Christmas Sleigh Centerpiece
1. Assemble your base:
- Red sleigh (so new, it hasn’t even come over from the warehouse yet, give us a few days)
- Red candle(s)*
- Green foam*
- Green moss*
2: Next, add:
- [Red berries]
- [Red & green crabapples]
- Green stems with leaves
- [Frosted cedar stems]
- Iced holly stems
- Pine stems
- Red velvet ribbon
- Fruit and nuts (not visible in photos)
3. Mix with:
- One talented floral designer*
- Hot glue gun*
- Wire and chenille stems*
4. Leave everything alone together for about two hours. When you return, voilà!
The perfect centerpiece for Christmas dinner – besides the turkey, the ham, and Mom’s sweet potato casserole (with pecans and marshmallows).
I told you it was super simple! You will find lots of ideas in our [on-line floral selection at ChristmasPlace.com] to help you create a Christmas masterpiece – or just come by the store, and let us do the work for you. (We’ll let you take the credit, we don’t mind.)

P.S. While you’re planning your trip to pick up supplies for your super-simple centerpiece project, why not come on an event day, meet an artist or author, and take home a signed piece? It’s a great tradition for those ornaments and collectibles you’d like to hand down for Christmases to come.
