Dining room table centerpieces can be instant focal points in the room. Whether elegant or casual, the centerpiece reflects the mood of the room or helps to create one. Using one bowl centerpieces for the dining room table are especially easy. They are inexpensive and easy to create, plus they can quickly be changed out to fit holiday decor or dinner party themes. When thinking about designing a one bowl centerpiece, use the ideas below to get started.
Choose a bowl that is versatile enough to coordinate with a variety of holidays and decorating ideas. Although the basic decor of the dining room is unlikely to change from season to season, the added holiday accessories may alter the decor slightly. Choosing a bowl that matches the room during all of its holiday transitions will keep clutter down and make it easy to switch from season to season and back again. Opt for a neutral bowl material like ceramic, glass or wood for the most versatility. Also consider the width and depth of the bowl. For a small dining room table, a smaller, but taller bowl would look great. However, for a longer dining room table, a wider, shallower bowl would work better to fill the space.
