Hi friends! Today, I am sharing some of the details of these Simple White and Evergreen Christmas Centerpieces that I featured on our Evergreen and Gold Christmas Table Settings that I posted a few days ago.
I had so many photos of it that I decided to do a quick, separate post to show you how simple it really was to make them.
Here are a few images of our two Christmas table settings for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I created the three centerpieces for both tables.
Simple White and Evergreen Christmas Centerpieces Details
Since our tables are long and rectangular, I knew I wanted to use my round gold compotes (which I bought and used for a bridal shower I hosted a while back). To hold the flowers, I ordered these round wet foam discs to sit in the bottom of the vases.
PRO TIP: Make sure the wet foam is fully soaked (it should be heavy). Once you finish up the arrangements, you can add more water.
It was beyond simple to create these arrangements. After soaking the wet foam discs, I placed in the hydrangeas (four per vase). Be sure to remove everything down-stem. Next, I just added in the variety of evergreens and foliage in a random way.
I chose hydrangeas because of their rounded girth and value. However, you could use any type of flowers that work with your color palette.
To start, I added in the “draping” greens around the outside of the arrangements…the cedar, specifically.
To balance the draping greens, I offset them with evergreens at opposing angles.
For these arrangements, I forged fresh greenery from our yard and used fresh green foliage from Trader Joe’s. The bigger the variety the better.
For our larger table in our dining room, I made two of the arrangements and divided them with my glass cylinder vases with floating candles.
For our smaller breakfast room table, I only featured one arrangement. Please know that there is no magic here. Any random variety of green foliage will work just as well.
Needless to say, I coordinated the arrangements with the place settings! You can see all of the details of both of the tables HERE.

The neat thing about these Simple White and Evergreen Centerpieces is that if any of the hydrangeas expire before Christmas, I can easily replace them. The evergreens will be fine through Christmas so we are good to go there. Have you started planning your Christmas table/tables?! How different is your Christmas going to look this year?
