Here’s a fun holiday decorating idea that’s quick and inexpensive… use christmas gift wrap bows for a centerpiece on your Christmas table.

Look for really nice bows (cheap bows won’t look very good). I really like Christmas bows layered with patterened ribbon, like the ones shown in the photo to the left.  Or bows that use a textured or unusual ribbon. For a dressier Christmas table, use large gold and silver bows. 

Just place a collection of these Christmas-themed or sparkly bows into a shallow glass bowl or a glass bowl on a pedestal. Turn the back of the bows inside so they don’t show. You could also scatter a few bows outside the bowl for fun.
