I take any and every opportunity to use non-traditional holiday decor in my home — I tend to stay away from the traditional looks and color palettes for floral arrangements. Not everything must be gold, red, and green, and if you enjoy a more natural and neutral color palate, there is no reason not to create just that for your holiday centerpiece.
This wine trough is simply lovely. I love the natural look of the wood and I think it could give a new twist to any holiday entertaining, and be used as either a centerpiece or just an arrangement for a buffet table. I used a few of these at a cocktail party which was held at a woodworker’s shop, and it turned out perfectly!
Note: To ensure that you don’t have any water leakage, you will need to line the insert for this trough. In general, unless you are sure that a vessel is watertight, always do a quick fill test to determine if any lining may be necessary.
