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.
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.
