‘Tis the season for holiday hosting! With Christmas fast approaching, there are plenty of parties and get-togethers on the calendar. There’s the ornament exchange with old friends, the office holiday pot-luck, and the cookie decorating party with the little ones. Then there’s Christmas Eve dinner at the in-laws and Christmas brunch.
Whether I’m attending a party or hosting myself, I always enjoy getting together with family and friends in a festively decorated space. The flicker of candles and the scent of evergreen, bright red bows and colorful Christmas ornaments, stockings on the mantle and the melody of holiday carols in the air — nothing makes me happier than these familiar sights and sounds.
The power of Christmas decorations to evoke such warm and happy feelings is what makes them so essential to creating a memorable holiday event. No matter what festivities you have planned, a beautiful centerpiece can make your gathering feel more special and joyful. It provides a focal point around which your guests will gather year after year for the sharing of food, conversation and gifts.
No holiday party is complete without one, so it’s worth investing in a Christmas centerpiece that’s uniquely designed, well crafted and meaningful to you. To give you an idea of what I mean, here’s a list of ten truly extraordinary Christmas centerpieces for your table. Their handcrafted quality and enduring value make them sensational gifts, as well!
A true holiday masterpiece, this Always in Bloom® beauty has an astonishing array of festive features: an everlasting evergreen floral arrangement, golden sculptural candles, glowing lights, a miniature 3D village with Santa and his sleigh — and Thomas Kinkade’s voice narrating “The Night Before Christmas!”
Thomas Kinkade had a rare talent for capturing the heart of the holidays, and this centerpiece brings that timeless quality to your table. It features a fully sculpted, bustling village surrounded by a festive Always in Bloom® bouquet. With lights and Christmas music, it’s pure perfection!
The name says it all! This Always in Bloom® bouquet is bursting with cheery silken poinsettias, green holly leaves and golden berry sprigs. The vase is genuine crystal with Thomas Kinkade artwork, and the whole thing lights up for an undeniably enchanting effect.
A lighted village, moving train and musical snowman in one, this centerpiece has everything. Glittery “snow” abounds, not to mention Swarovski® crystals suspended from the snowman’s mitten. There are too many intricate and inspired details to describe, but I assure you this is one captivating holiday masterpiece!
This eye-catching centerpiece captures Lena Liu’s holiday floral art on a vase brimming with an everlasting bouquet that mirrors the artwork in lush, lifelike abundance. Radiant LED lights and flickering sculptural candles add a warm and festive glow.
If you love the glitter of gold and the richness of crimson, this illuminated floral arrangement is sure to please.

I love holiday decor that’s a bit playful, which is why I find this Always in Bloom® centerpiece so irresistible. Inspired by acclaimed artist Kayomi Harai, its delightful details can’t help but bring cheer, from the sculptural kitten peeking out of the evergreen floral arrangement to the festive kitten art on the gift-box planter.
