INDY: Stunning Centerpieces – 5 Ideas for your Dining Room Table

As a new homeowner in Indianapolis, you get to enjoy both the fun and challenge of piecing together your home décor. Whether you prefer something simple or a little more elegant, centerpieces are definitely one way to put that extra detail and finishing touch to your M/I Home dining room. So, here are five of our favorite ideas you should consider.

1.  Nearly Natural Mixed Silk Peony Flower Arrangement/Centerpiece

Want something timeless and low-maintenance? How about no maintenance! This vibrant, lovely peony flower arrangement from Bed, Bath & Beyond is the perfect daytime décor. With a mix of buds and vibrant foliage, you’ll love the way this authentic–looking floral arrangement looks atop your table. Available online for $49.99.


2.  DIY Paper Pom Poms

Add a little dash of color to your dining table with these easy-to-make blooms. This DIY centerpiece puts a touch of pizzazz to your room and also makes for a fun, little craft for youngsters. All you need is some tissue paper and one of these vases from Target. Check out further instructions on the project.


3.  Imperial Champagne Orb Bowl

If you’re looking to go beyond a floral arrangement, this luxurious champagne bowl might be for you. This imperial piece features sturdy pedestal base with beautiful crackled glass bowl making it your go-to arrangement for your next dinner party or elegant get-together. Available online from Kirkland’s for $29.99.


4.  Fruit/Veggie DIY Arrangement

If you’re buying fruits and vegetables at the grocery anyway, why not use them as your centerpiece? If you’re entertaining house guests and your table is packed with food, this might be a more practical alternative. Create this look with just a cluster of vivid lemons in this large white bowl from Pottery Barn ($39.99) or mix it up with some bright-colored produce. No matter the occasion, this piece always looks tasteful.


5.  Pure Color Ceramic Vases

We love the simplicity and chestnut color of this ceramic piece from West Elm. Place this vase right in the middle of your table for a classic look, or cluster it together with smaller vases to create a more dramatic centerpiece. Finish it off with some metallic leaves ($19.00) completing your table’s ensemble. Order the vase online for $39.00.
