Check out my list of kitchen table centerpiece ideas for inspiration to complete the look of your dining space.
When something is pretty, you are less likely to mess it up. So, if your kitchen table is the drop-zone for your whole family and it is constantly full of stuff that doesn’t belong, add a kitchen table centerpiece. It just may coerce them to drop their stuff elsewhere! No promises though! A kitchen table centerpiece is the perfect way to complete the look of your dining space. The centerpiece doesn’t have to be elaborate or complicated to dress up your table and it can even hold a purpose. Due to my obsession with decorating, I find myself rotating our decorations quite often which means my table has seen several different combinations, and I would like to share a few of the more simple ones with you for inspiration!

Kitchen Table Centerpiece Ideas
Ahh my beloved dough bowl! Dough bowls make for great kitchen table centerpieces! You can fill them with just about anything and it is only one piece to remove when setting the table or cleaning it off. It is great for all the holidays too! I fill mine with pumpkins in the fall, ornaments during Christmas, pinecones for the winter, my DIY eggs during Easter, and flowers for any other time. If your dough bowl is shaped like mine, it will look great on oval or rectangle shaped tables. You can get a similar dough bowl here.
Cake Stand or Riser
No need to store your wedding cake plate in the basement if you can use it to decorate, right? I love repurposing meaningful pieces, like Alex and I’s cake stand my Mother-In-Law bought for us. Or if you have a party coming up, and you are looking to “invest” in a cake plate, now you have a better reason to do so. It’s a great staple to have in your home if you ask me. A cake stand is a great way to corral décor and often-used items like a small plant and your salt and pepper shakers.
My Mom and I came up with quite the collection of lanterns when preparing for Alex and I’s wedding. Now, lanterns are one of my decorating staples! They work in any room and all year long which makes them great for centerpieces too! I have filled ours with greenery, candles, potpourri, flowers, ornaments, and pumpkins. Even though you can find lanterns with the most ornate detail, they are fairly simple as far as centerpieces go since it is only one piece.
Add some life to your table by adding fruit! You can totally throw a bowl of fruit on the table and call it a centerpiece! I do it all the time. Most of us have a fruit bowl on our countertop, so why not move it to the table to clear some countertop real-estate? Also, the more we see the fruit, the more likely we are to eat it and less likely to waste it. Don’t you just love décor that’s actually functional? Plus, fruit is pretty and colorful!
Here’s another kitchen table centerpiece idea that’s functional, a LAZY SUSAN! Plus, I have a cute DIY lazy susan that you must try (click here for the tutorial)! They have great functionality by allowing you to keep spaces tidy and cute. There should be one in every room and closet in my opinion. It’s a great way to keep all your table needs in one spot and it’s super fun to spin! The opportunities are endless with these rotating surfaces.
I had this two tiered tray in my Amazon cart for the longest time, but didn’t know where I should put it until I realized it was perfect for my kitchen table! These trays are fun to change up for the holidays too! I decorate it with all the small little knick-knacks I always have trouble finding a home for. This tray comes in handy for the dessert table at parties and showers too!
Call me country, but I don’t think you can go wrong with a mason jar full of flowers! So if you are looking for something simple, try an antique, painted, or plain mason jar and fill it up with your favorite flowers (real or fake is accepted on this blog). Our property is full of beautiful wildflowers during the Spring and Summer, so I am constantly changing out jars at our house. The zinnias were grown by me! I know, I can’t believe it either! I finally found a flower that can put with my bs!
Using a tray to coral all of your things (practical and just pretty), makes your table look instantly more put together. I love the contrast of this metal tray on our table. It’s great for holding our fruit bowl (practical) and a small plant or (pretty).
My love for candle holders run deep! I just love the different types and textures and have unofficially started to collect them. During the fall, I like to switch the candles out for some of my DIY Pumpkins. This combo sits on one side of my dresser, but I thought it made for a pretty and simple centerpiece too. The wood tray helps finish off the look, don’t you think?
