I would welcome some ideas for a low, festive, centerpiece for a long , narrow table I will be using for a Christmas Dinner. Something that won't hide the one sitting across from it. I am really out of ideas at this point.

I like a bowl, plate, or a tray (silver or pottery) with vintage ornaments and bead garland.

Or, try of greenery cut from your yard, and add fruit, silks, holly pieces, old christmas light bulbs, pillar candles or ornaments to add color.

A glass bowl, short vase or wine glasses lined up and filled with some Christmas decorations would be easy, too.

Here are some pics . . . (leave the trophy off of the tray for a short piece):

Here's a crystal bowl w/ornies and a low cake plate topped with red china accented with ornaments & bead garland:

I have a kind of squatty little brass vase that I put white silk poinsettas in and a red velvet bow in front.

I like to use florist wire to wrap it around one of the stems. Sorry I don't have a picture of it. I haven't started decorating yet. I am so lazy.

I'd like to see one of those beautiful, sparkly wired beaded garlands..the ones you drape over the tops of mirrors, pictures and tall furniture..in an S shape down the middle of the table with low glass votive candles worked in it.

I use a red table cloth and then use a decorative runner down the center. (The Home Goods by me has great runners for about 19.99). Then two simple candles with some decoration at the base. White plates & decorative napkin holders. Always a hit, and folks can see eachother.

^^^ agreed on the "seeing each other" statement! I have been to get togethers where the center pieces are so distracting, you can't talk to anyone sitting across from you.
