6 Cozy Winter Dining Table and Centerpiece Ideas

Looking for cozy winter decor and centerpiece ideas for the dining table you can use all season long? Wait until you see how easy it is to design a cozy winter table with a few simple items.

I never met a centerpiece I didn’t like.

Whether it’s live or faux, I’m all about decorating a table with a beautiful centerpiece.

For the longest time, I’ve been decorating my dining table with THIS centerpiece vessel.

And because I like to keep it on the dining table all season long, I swap out the decor to mirror the outdoor elements.

Since we moved, my favorite centerpiece container is too big beneath my gorgeous crystal chandelier.

So today, we are creating a whole new look using this hammered copper bowl with faux greens and other organic elements.

But I’ll tell you that I find many pieces for a song when I’m out bargain shopping.

HERE are 9 garden treasures you should ALWAYS buy at the thrift store, antique mall or flea market.

Cozy Winter Centerpiece Idea That Will Last All Season Long

For this centerpiece idea, I started with this gorgeous hammered gold bowl that my aunt and uncle gave to me for Christmas.

Isn’t it so pretty?

And it looks great in my new dining room.

Plus, it’s low enough to have under my crystal chandelier.

I then started with a few real touch Norfolk pine evergreen branches.

As a side note, these sell out really quickly so when they become available again – buy them!

These are great faux greens that look pretty authentic and don’t make a mess!

If you don’t have these types of branches, grab any ones you have, whether real or faux but choose different types of greens with different textures.

Keep in mind that live greens will need to be cared for.

After setting up my larger evergreen branches, I tucked in some medium-size faux evergreen sprigs to add a little more texture and dimension.

And then I tucked these cute juniper and berry sprigs in to vary the texture of greenery more.

I then added some faux white berries and these snow tipped pine cones for additional texture.

To add some cozy lighting, I tucked in this battery-operated candle in the center.

And that’s it for the centerpiece!

Now that we’ve covered how to make the centerpiece, here’s how I decorated the table.

I wanted to play up the juniper berries from the centerpiece, so I accented this table with some blues.

So I started with this beautiful table runner that has a gorgeous blue ticking stripe.

Then added my centerpiece and candle holders with tapered candles for mood lighting.

If you wanted to use battery operated candles, I also have THESE and love them!

To create some cozy layers at each table setting, I started with a cedar branch placement.

If you don’t have these or can’t find one, you can substitute with a small boxwood wreath and just layer it in the place setting.

Next, I added a gorgeous wood charger and a gorgeous creamy melamine charger.

On top of the chargers, I layered both my Lenox dinner and salad plates.

And topped each place setting off with these gorgeous blue plaid napkins like THESE with wood rings like THESE.

Finally, I grouped the fork, knife, and spoon in these adorable cutlery pouches that I use almost all the time!

    1. Hey Wendy!! I didn’t link it because they are not available right now – I was hoping they’d restock now but they haven’t yet anywhere. I see them come out in summer-ish so I will share and start linking them then. They sell out very quickly!!!

    1. Thanks Rachel – You can just see this room start to come together! I’m so glad I have a before-dinner party as those upholstered walls are now gone! That chandelier is the best!!!

    1. Thanks so much Kim! They are so pretty and look so real! I wish they sold them year round but we’ll see them again around summertime.
