Crafting together can remind everyone of why Christmas is so special, it is family time spent together that makes it special. Everything from choosing the container to what type of flowers and greenery can be a family decision, making it all the more special.

Poinsettias are one of the favorites at Christmas time and can be purchased at any florist, retail store and even online. These plants speak Christmas because of their beautiful and rich color as well as that magical touch that they have for any room.
Many have found that they can use the leaves and stems to garnish other arrangements as well. This gives the color and feel of the poinsettia, but creates a unique and customized centerpiece for any room. Other touches such as small cut outs, bells, ribbons or other finishing touches can be added to make the piece that perfectly designed centerpiece.
Incorporating candles into floral centerpieces or simple green ones can help provide a great decoration as well. Candles can give height to the centerpiece and also established the color that the individual is attempting to carry for their holiday theme.
Candles are also affordable and make great ways to finish off the centerpiece. Whether they be stick candles, round, square or other decorative ones they are a good way to put the finishing touches on any Christmas centerpiece.
