For those of you hosting guests and dinner parties during the holidays, here are a few centerpiece ideas to spice up the room without breaking the bank.

It might seem simple, but when you’ve already gone through the trouble of tying the ribbon and making your bows just right, you might as well get to show them off a bit longer! Use your favorite gift-wrap as a centerpiece for quick decor that won’t cost you anything extra.

Sometimes decor can be right in your own backyard. A bundle of branches can easily become a rustic centerpiece that won’t cost you a lot of time or money, and it can be a fun adventure for the kids to help with too.

If you have any leftover glassware or plastic martini cups from your holiday party, repurpose them to be candle holders for the table. You can also use a scrap piece of patterned gift-wrap, like this metallic polka-dot pattern, as a quick table runner.

Show off your growing collection of ornaments in a new way with a playful ornament garland across the table for a modern tablescape that can be as colorful or as minimal as you want. It also doesn’t hurt that it does double duty for household decor once the party is over.
