Clementine & Holly Christmas Centerpiece

Posted on December 23, 2014
Hi Everyone! Are you still baking? Or wrapping presents? Or maybe still shopping? If you’re not quite done with your Christmas decorating yet and are looking for a super quick, easy and festive centerpiece for your Christmas table or buffet, I have an idea to share with you that couldn’t be simpler! All you need are some clementines, fresh holly, a cake stand and about 5 minutes of your time, and you’re done! Clementines always remind me of Christmas; I don’t know if they’re in season at this time of year or why they are around during the holidays, but they always remind me of my childhood Christmases when they would fill baskets in the kitchen, and then be on the Christmas dessert table along with other fruit, lots of cookies, walnuts and other festive goodies.
You could add other things to the centerpiece, like walnuts, cranberries, cinnamon sticks, or other citrus fruits, but I like the simplicity of just the clementines. You could also arrange them in a shallow basket with the holly instead of on a cake stand, but I like the height that the cake stand adds, and the extra festive touch it makes! Make sure you wash the fruit (even though you’ll be peeling it…) before eating, since it was sitting on the holly!
Alright, well I better run, there are cookies to be finished, and a messy kitchen to be cleaned…! It’s a mess in there. A pretty delicious mess!
Merry Christmas, Everyone!

    I also bought a big bag of clementines from Wal-mart yesterday but they taste very dry and they aren’t sweet. Yours look good, where did you get them from?

      I got mine at Wegmans… their produce is usually pretty good, although you never really know with clementines… sometimes they’re good, other times they’re completely dry and tasteless! These were pretty good! Merry Christmas to you 🙂
