How To Make An Easy Holiday Centerpiece

I have been busy decking the halls around here. Last night I was able to finish the dining room. I always have a hard time thinking of a centerpiece for the dining room table and after pondering it for a day or two last night it just came to me. 
I had this beautiful angel that was in the guest room.
Next I pulled out an urn from HomeGoods I purchased a while back.
I grabbed some florist foam from my stash.
Next I started clipping some fresh greenery I had purchased at the local nursery.
I situated two small pieces of foam into the urn and then just start pushing the greenery into it all the way around. It was as simple as that and took about ten minutes.
This is the end result!
While I was working on the centerpiece I decided to go ahead and update the pots on some faux cypress trees I purchased when we were in Ga over Thanksgiving. 
I just dry brushed some Vintage White onto the pots to get rid of the plastic green color.
Then I just took some jute and wrapped it around the pot a few times.

If you want to see more of our holiday dining room be sure to stop back by this evening!:) 

NOTE: You can now see our dining room here.
Don't forget next Saturday is my 2nd annual Holiday Mantle Party!
Off to work on my mantle.
Hope your weekend is going well!:)
