Some party themes have obvious centerpieces – an Eiffel Tower replica for a Paris motif or a pail of peanuts for a Western shindig. Seasonal parties are great opportunities to use natural decor that are readily available. Pumpkins and gourds are as great in the autumn as holly and poinsettias are in the winter. Potted miniature pines also are fabulous at Christmas – decorate the trees or leave them plain. Other times, creativity is the order of the day. A gumball topiary is an easy DIY centerpiece for a candy or Candy Land party, while a bouquet of personalized lollipops displayed in a cheap terra cotta pot is a great look for a range of fun themes. Paint the pots in party colors for a little extra pop.
