You all knew that I HAD to get my dough bowl out for Christmas at least once [I might be back with another Christmas dough bowl centerpiece… we shall see] I have been craving a more simple Christmas centerpiece after my rustic woodland tablescape [here] & I knew the dough bowl would be the perfect piece. I also wanted to use my new rocking horse from A Cottage In The City because, well let’s face it, it’s almost the cutest thing I have ever seen.
When I said simple centerpiece, I just meant “more simple” haha. To create this Christmas dough bowl centerpiece I took a dough bowl I found while out junkin’ [ you can find one for yourself at Painted Fox [here]]. I filled it with some garland from Michaels, & layered in some ornaments, pinecones, and a small Christmas that were also from Michaels. The candle holders are from world market, & the gem of the whole thing is that wonderful rocking horse from A Cottage In The City [here]. Super simple & easy to take on and off the table which I know a lot of you wanted some ideas on, so here you go. This would also be great with any tray.
I think you guys have probably noticed, but I am never done with anything. I’m always tweaking things even our Christmas decor & that’s why I have this blog to document it all. It’s so much fun sharing different Christmas ideas & hopefully you guys leave the blog inspired in some little way. This simple Christmas table is making me crave more simple Christmas decor around the house. Maybe I should subtract a few things & share a more simplified Christmas home tour soon? Stay tuned!
I’m loving this neutral Christmas space & that rocking horse is giving me all the feels. Am I a rocking horse person now? Like, do I collect them? Have I got to that stage? I mean we all saw my card catalog [here] with all of the rocking horses. Okay. Let me know what you think of this Christmas dough bowl centerpiece in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram.

Oh I love the dough bowl centrepiece. I like it better than the rustic centrepiece, tho of course that was great too, like all of your decorating. I live in Australia, so our Christmas comes in different season than yours, but we still like to dream of a white Christmas. I have been following your blog for some time now. I just LOVE it. I have always loved swapping things around in our own small home (1960’s bungalow), and don’t have much cash for shopping new stuff, so love flea markets and repurposing. always get loads of ideas from you. Also love following all your changes and ups and downs in life, and always in my prayers too. Checked out your Christmas home tour. It looks AMAZING. You can tell that you put your heart and soul into everything you do. It shows. Thanks for all the joy and pleasure I have had from following your blog. I am a bit technology challenged and don’t do Facebook, Instagram etc. and don’t spend a lot of time on computer but I ALWAYS make time to check out the latest from LIzMarie. My family wish you and yours all the blessings and joys of the Christmas Season, and hope the magic of Christmas will be yours all year long. Best regards and love, Susan. ps Love your little puppies too, just beautiful. XO
Where did you get the metal ornaments on your tree in your centerpiece? I love them!
That centerpiece is gorgeous and I would love to see a simple Christmas home tour!
