10 DIY Edible Christmas Centerpieces
The countdown to Christmas is dwindling down to nothing and you have got everything planned down to the last detail, except your Christmas dinner centerpiece. You want something creative, innovative, and fun, but your mind is stumped and can’t think of anything besides the fake flowers you usually throw together. Well I say throw out the synthetic centerpiece and create a functional, yet beautiful, one you and your guests can eat. Here are ten of the best edible centerpieces to inspire your creativity this holiday season:
1. Truffle Tree
Grab your favorite homemade, or store-bought, no one will know either way and stack them up in the shape of a tree, using frosting or toothpicks to hold them together. Wrap the base with some gorgeous ribbon and throw in some synthetic flowers and you will have your guests swooning over your centerpiece creation.
2. Berry Beautiful
If you want a healthier version of the previous suggestion, grab some strawberries (or any other of your favorite berries) instead. You can add a little more bling to it with some edible fondant as a star, and maybe just a little of some edible sparkles to give it a little shine.
3. Cheese and Wine Wonderment
If you just can’t figure out how to stack your treats into a 3D Christmas tree tower, recreate the effect as a 2D cheese and grape masterpiece to go perfectly with your wine instead.
4. Christmas Cookie Creations
If you give up on the first two but do not think the third suggestion is as cute, go with this little cookie concoction. All you need is something to paste your favorite treats onto with frosting and bam – a cookie Christmas tree. Simple, easy, and affordable.

5. Cupcake Candy
If you are over the tree décor, here is a cupcake option that you will fall in love with. Bake up some red and white cupcakes and lay them out on your table in the shape of a candy cane. Easy! Though I would add a bit more sprinkles and sparkle. It is the holidays, after all.
6. Pretty Pinecones
If you really want to get creative, these muddy buddy pinecones are for you. They are delicious, decadent, and adorable. But warning: they are messy.
7. Festive Fake Fruit
No, do not go out and buy some fake fruit. For this centerpiece you will just need some good wine, your favorite chocolate balls, and some hot glue. Yes, it look like a pineapple, bit it will be a festive one.
8. Festive Real Fruit
Yes, this one will be using real fruit. Think of it as a DIY fruit bouquet, except you will be making a tree and it will be a million times better. You can even dip some in chocolate to make it even more scrumptious.
9. Scrumptious Wreath
If you want to go with something a little more on the fancy side, go with this cheese, olive, and tomato wreath as your centerpiece of choice. You can even add your favorite wine to sit in the middle and really impress your guests.
10. Super Healthy Christmas Tree
