Easy Table Centerpiece

This is the first time in my life I’ve ever had a round dining room table and I LOVE my table and chairs so much. One of the most difficult things I’ve come across owning this table is creating cute centerpieces that don’t look “off” on the table. I put together this super easy centerpiece one night and it cost me less than $10 and took all of 2 minutes to create!

I baked some box-mix blueberry muffins for the boys breakfast while they were sleeping and wanted them to wake up to a cute breakfast at the table. Spending time together as a family is so important, and meals are a great way to get rid of screens and just enjoy each other’s company. The boys are usually so happy in the mornings right after they wake up, so having breakfast together is such a wonderful time.

For this display I got ALL of these items in the Target One Spot. I used a cake plate, a cupcake stand, and a wooden sign. The cake plate has lasted me over a year and was only $5! The cupcake stand and sign were $1 each, making this centerpiece $7 plus the $1 bag of muffin mix. Super affordable and they’re items that you can use over and over again for various baking and displays, so purchasing the items was a no brainer for me. I already had these small sheets of burlap (and any kind of burlap placemat would work just fine) but you can get the sheets at Michael’s in a booklet for $5 if you have no burlap at home (gasp! lol).

I arranged 5 pieces of burlap sheets in a circle in the center of my table, then placed the cake plate on the center of the circle. I formed a circle on the cake plate with my muffins, then added the cupcake stand to the center of the cake plate. Finally I topped my cupcake stand with this adorable positive sign. Fun Fact: When I started dating James I thought it was hilarious how much he used the term “Heck Yes” and now our entire immediate family uses it nonstop, so this sign was just too perfect to pass up.

What’s great about this is that instead of dirtying up an dish for a muffin, you can pull out a piece of the burlap, set the muffin on top and enjoy! Then clean up is as easy as dusting the crumbs off the burlap sheet into the trash! I’m all about using as few dishes as possible to save on housework later.

 

That’s literally all I did! I told you it was super easy and it ended up looking SO cute! I really love all the great finds from the Target One Spot and all the different things you can do with them! What’s your favorite One Spot find?
