If you don’t have any Christmas themed table linen, you could put out a plain white table cloth and place a bunch of red roses in the center to dress up your table. Alternatively, if there’s too much red and green going on in the room, you could choose a bunch of yellow roses or even multi-colored roses. Avoid white roses for such a festive occasion. Roses can be arranged in many different ways. You can put them together in a tall vase or a shorter, wide bowl.

Flower petals

Not everyone likes to have a tall central flower arrangement on the dinner table. Many people feel that it obstructs their vision and keeps them from seeing their guest’s faces. An alternative is to make a low arrangement of just the buds or to use petals. Petals can be strewn along the length of the table in the form of a runner or kept in bowls of water. You can even add a few floating candles to these bowls to give your table a soft glow.

Flowers are the easiest and most budget friendly table centerpieces for a Christmas dinner. The best part about them is that even after the dinner is over and everyone else has gone back home, the blooms will remind you of the festivities and cheerful banter.
