S’more Snowmen!

S'more Snowman

In keeping with our Christmas in July theme, here are some super cute marshmallow snowman s’mores. I made two variations of this concept: one snowman is sitting on a graham cracker and a chocolate bar and the other snowman is hanging out with his chocolate-dipped graham cracker surfboard! These snowmen are soft and cuddly (suitable to give as a gift) and are perfect for playful table centerpieces.

In this post I’ll show you how to make the following:

A Beach… at the North Pole?

Leave a comment

Where can you find snow spilling out of beach buckets? At the North Pole! This is the Arctic beach where snowman can sunbathe and NOT melt! You can also find an Arctic beach in your home… if you make this centerpiece, of course! ;)

The easiest way to recreate this centerpiece is to use or buy the buckets, batting, pompoms, and ornaments of mixed sizes. If you want to get a little craftier, you can make your own glitter ornaments (click here for instructions). Want to stick to a monochromatic Christmas theme, perhaps? Or maybe just shiny silvers and golds? Whatever direction you want to take this craft, enjoy it and make your own Christmas in July centerpiece.

Sparkly Winter Branches

Christmas is a faaaabulous time of year! Brighten up any area with this wintery pink arrangement of branches and icicles. This quick & easy centerpiece could be on your table in no time. Pick whatever type/color of winter branches you like from the craft store. I got about 4 stems of a linear branch (hot pink), and 4 stems of a bushy branch (light pink). You may need more if you have a large vase. (My vase is 10.5″ tall with a 4″ opening.)

Tree People for the Kids’ Table

6 comments

This is a great project for kids! Perhaps you are making a centerpiece for your dinner party, but your little ones want to help. Here’s a fun idea—jazz up the branches with a few accessories and wiggly eyes and use them as centerpieces for the kids’ table.  I used the leftover pieces of tree branches from when I made the tree card holders. You may also recall my earlier posts about burlap runners, balls, bunting, and yarn pompoms. These cheery, little, tree characters are a great way to have the kids’ table decor match the adult table!

Christmas Table Centerpiece

Typically, florists call this type of arrangement “long & low.” These arrangements are meant to be stay on a table, even during mealtimes. They are also appropriate for a coffee table or a fireplace mantel. It is low so that you can see across the table, and it’s long—meaning that the linear flowers are used to add length and not height. In this centerpiece, I used greenery (instead of flowers) to add length. You can use whatever flowers or greenery you like—just be sure to get face flowers, linear flowers, filler and greens.
