Here are some DIY ideas if you are looking for that perfect centre-piece to place on your dining or coffee table.

An centre-piece is the cynosure of all eyes.

Pot it, right: An centre-piece is the cynosure of all eyes. The simplest way of making an arresting one is taking a small indoor potted plant, placing it on a bed of pebbles... on any old tray you have. You can also add a candle stand to the arrangement to give it a Zen-like appeal.

Floral Pop: For this easy but very aesthetic centre-piece, you’ll need bubble wrap, a vase, a paint brush, acrylic paint, paper, tape and flowers. Protect your surface with newspapers. Using a colour of your choice, paint the bubble wrap. Place the painted bubble wrap on a plain paper. Press gently and then slowly peel away. Wrap freshly pressed paper around vases. Secure with double-sided tape. Fill with water and flowers for a finishing touch.  

Candle it: To instantly brighten up any dull room or your dining table, all you need are wine corks, scented candles of your choice, a large glass cylindrical vase and a small glass. Start off by cleaning and drying your corks, thoroughly. Dump the corks into the cylindrical vase. Place a scented candle of your choice into the small glass, and put it in between the corks. Turn of the lights, light the candle, and your centrepiece is set for the perfect date night.

Sand Bottled: Sand bottles are striking decor that can enhance a space. Fill uniquely shaped bottles, such as old milk jugs or even old liquor bottles with sand in hues of your choosing, stick in a flower or succulent, and display it in style.

White it with fruits: If nothing else is available at hand, add a jewel-toned fruit to a white bowl with sensuous lines for an easy arrangement. Look for fruits of differing sizes and shapes but with similar colouring, like plums and pomegranates. Add some light to the arrangement.

Wood it: Take that old wooden salad bowl and add some colourful flowers, leaves and twigs, you can also take some scented candles to complete the look.
