Centerpieces are the secret-weapon of an organized mom. Really! They make a statement that says "this table is decorated and off-limits." Try it sometime.
Clear off a table that otherwise collects clutter and place a stunning centerpiece right in the midst. It dares anyone to mess with the look. You'll have a clutter-free table for days. Switch up the centerpiece once in a while to re-establish authority. Who knows, a clean table could become a family tradition! (More in How to Declutter Your House and Keep It Organized.)
What kind of centerpieces do you like? They can be simple or ornate, depending on your tastes and decor. Here are some centerpiece ideas for you to consider:
Flowers - a fresh bouquet or arrangement of flowers in a decorative vase is a beautiful centerpiece for any dining room, kitchen table or accent table in your hallway. Artificial plants or flowers can work well, too, just remember to dust them.

A Simple Sea Shell Centerpiece: For a totally original seashore kind of feel, try making asimple centerpiece. Start with a cluster of green Hydrangeas inside one hidden vase of water, all set inside a slightly larger glass vase filled with white sand and sea shells.
Fish - yes, you read it right. FISH! Using a clear glass vase with marbles at the bottom, add an underwater plant, water and a dazzling Betta Fish. Kids will love it. Take good care of that fish, though, and kee him alone or your centerpiece will become a crime scene! How to Make a Betta Fish Centerpiece
