A pretty and delightful centerpiece, these pears are dipped into boiled and hardened maple syrup. Topped with sea salt, these give a glittered and glamorous look to your table.

A healthier option for an edible holiday centerpiece, the very berry Christmas tree is crafted in a similar fashion as the cupcake Christmas tree. Also using a plastic foam cone and toothpicks, this tree is topped with a golden pineapple star.

Peppermint topiary with edible snow

Festive and merry, it's not the peppermints that are edible in this centerpiece, it's the snow! Made by gluing unwrapped peppermints to a ball of plastic foam, cotton candy is stuffed into the bottom of the box to look like snow. Keep your candies wrapped as an option for guests to have an after-dinner mint (if you don't mind your centerpiece being taken apart, of course).

Another edible centerpiece using peppermints, these Christmas trees can also be crafted with gumdrops and other holiday treats. The blogger glues her sweet treats directly onto the plastic foam base, but again, if you would like yours to remain edible, keep the wrappers on or adhere to wax paper by spritzing a bit of sugar water as an adhesive.

Cute and crafty, these gingerbread cookie trees will be a hit at this year's holiday dinner. Smelling sweet and looking even sweeter, these trees are made using a stand and edible frosting. Use star cookie cutters and bases of various sizes to add dimension to your trees and overall centerpiece.

From one sweet tree to another, this Christmas tree is made entirely out of cupcakes. Crafted carefully and intentionally, these green frosted cupcakes are adhered to a plastic foam cone using toothpicks. Add a few metallic-wrapped chocolates for a realistic and sugary appearance.

Rosemary and olive wreath

An edible centerpiece you can use at your dinner party and savor later is this rosemary and olive wreath. Made using a wire or bendy vine, the rosemary is strung along with the wire to shape into a circle-like wreath. Place your wreath on a platter or directly onto the center of your table and add olives, tomatoes, cheese and other succulent bites for a flavorful appeal.
