 St. Nicholas Centerpiece

From Berry Branble Cottage


A special St. Nichols centerpiece illustrates many of the good saint's stories and legends. Items placed in a flower pot, surrounded by greens tell the story of the bishop’s life:
Miter construction paper miter to decorate the flower pot
Crozier candy cane
Ship walnut shell boat with paper sail
Three gold balls clementines or tangerines
Gold coins chocolate coins
Money bags three muslin tea bags, each filled with a special "treasure" of nuts, popping corn, or money for a gift to choose a gift for a child in need
Anchor Speculaas cookies shaped like anchors
Three maidens/children in tub/children three paper white bulbs
Shoes small wooden shoes
Amaryllis bulb to represent the spirit of life-giving love so well exemplified by St. Nicholas. Just as life and beauty blooms from a simple bulb, so, too, we want the same to grow in our hearts and bloom in our lives.

Family activity
Discover and talk about the items in the flower pot—why they are symbols for St. Nicholas and what they may mean for us.
