Simple centerpieces can be beautiful and inexpensive. We have gathered a couple of ideas to make life simple for you when creating them. One of the best simple, yet elegant ideas is to place items in a cylinder with water. This vase is beveled and placed on a mirror for extra drama. Add a bow for a festive touch. This photo shows a simple glass vase filled with water and sliced oranges. Fresh fruit works very well as a decorative element.
The next centerpiece couldn’t be easier, as you don’t even have to slice the oranges. The only additional element is a grouping of tea light candles.
Finally, one of the simplest centerpiece ideas is to take a solid color vase and tie a decorative ribbon around it. The vases in the photo below have varying colors on the outside and inside. A glass candle holder with a lit tea light candle finish off this arrangement.
