A few simple and stylish dining table centerpiece ideas for after the holidays.
I don’t know about you, but after the holidays ~ after taking down all of my decorations ~ I just want simple and easy decor. Not too cluttered or extravagant.
I’m ready for minimalism and simplicity.
I’m sure it’s because every inch of our house is covered with Christmas decorations from the end of November until early January, which I love!
But as I take it all down and put it away, I’m not in the decorating mood.
I crave “easy”.
Which also goes for my dining table centerpiece. I want something that’s easy to create, yet looks great on the table.
Are you the same way?
If so, I’ve created some simple and stylish dining table centerpieces that you can copy for your table after the holidays.

When it comes to creating a centerpiece, less is often more. Too many items can make your centerpiece look cluttered and overwhelming. Try to choose a few key elements and keep the rest of the design simple. This will keep your centerpiece looking stylish and inviting.
Cute Greenery Centerpiece
A cute, simple, and stylish centerpiece for after the holidays is to use plants.
For this centerpiece, I placed my air plant on top of a checkered napkin. I put the napkin diagonally on my table for visual interest.
If you don’t have an air plant then succulents work great too. Both types of plants don’t require much sun or effort, so they’re perfect for using in a simple centerpiece. Plus they’re living plants so they can stay on your table for a long time. Unlike fresh flowers that have a short lifespan and require trimming their stems and checking the water level.
Then if you want, add a few candlesticks on either side of your plant. They add height and ambiance to your dining table.
Simple & Stylish Farmhouse Centerpiece
If you like the farmhouse style, this sweet centerpiece is super easy to copy.
Start with a white farmhouse tray. Then add a few drinking glasses on the tray, and maybe a small bud vase or two like I did.
Next, fill a white pitcher with water and place it next to the tray. Don’t forget to place a pretty napkin or hand towel under the pitcher to dab up any water drops. (Plus it looks cute!)
Complete the simple farmhouse centerpiece by flanking the tray with candlesticks.
Not only is this a simple pretty centerpiece, it’s also functional. A great way for your family to grab a glass of water, or whatever beverage you add to your pitcher.
Classic Neutral Centerpiece
This timeless neutral centerpiece is attractive and functional.
Place a neutral colored table runner down the center of your table. Then add a raised fruit bowl, a stack of small plates, and a small cutting board. Don’t forget the knife.
Now you and your family can easily grab a piece of fruit when they’re getting a little peckish.
Not only does this simple centerpiece look attractive, it also encourages healthy eating. That’s a win-win!
Simple Cluster Centerpiece
Yes, this is a SUPER SIMPLE centerpiece.
But I think too often we try to do too much as a centerpiece. We forget how pretty a collection of vases can look on a table.
In fact, it doesn’t need to be a collection of vases, it can be any collection you own.
As long as the pieces coordinate, are at different heights, and there are at least three, you have a great collection to make a simple and stylish centerpiece for your dining table.
Keep it Simple
The key to a simple and stylish dining table centerpiece is to keep it simple.
Creating an attractive centerpiece doesn’t have to be complicated. With a few simple materials and a bit of creativity, you can create a beautiful centerpiece.
If you keep adding to your centerpiece, you’re doing too much. Go back and remove one or two pieces. I bet you’ll be happy you did.
Now use these simple and stylish dining table centerpiece ideas to impress your friends and family.
