A beautiful homemade centerpiece can keep your dining room table feeling festive long after your holiday guests have left for the evening. We love something seasonal yet untraditional, like this crafty creation from florist Amy Marella, owner of renowned L.A. studio The Hidden Garden and DIY floral bar Fleurish.
For an added touch to your table, Marella suggests incorporating natural elements into your place settings—try tucking a spring of greenery into a napkin tied with a glam gold ribbon, for instance. Head to the craft store or order materials online, and get building.
