Christmas centerpieces

At Christmas time, you want to set a bountiful, beautiful table, with your very best china, a cherished old lace or damask cloth or a special new one in brightly-colored fabric. You want a holiday centerpiece of tall white candles and fresh greens and holly, or pink and red roses, or clusters of frosted fruits, or a bowl of shining tree ornaments.

You want a centerpiece for every dining table, the small one by the living room fireplace for after-dinner coffee, and the kitchen breakfast table, too. But the most festive one of all, of course, belongs on your dining room table, where you gather round for a Merry Christmas dinner.
