Select Your Japanese Themed Centerpiece

First, shop your house. Do you have a Buddha like mine? I tried really hard to make my table reflect JAPAN and not other Asian countries but it’s hard as there is some overlap.

No Buddha? No problem. You’ll need to be flexible and use your imagination a bit.

Do you have any ninja toys? Bamboo? A small Japanese flag you can hang? A cool sushi making set? Cherry blossoms {faux or real}? Koi Fish art? There are so many motifs you can borrow.

Hang Japanese Paper Cranes

Origami paper cranes are a big part of Japanese celebratory culture and a wonderful activity if you want to make learning about Japan fun for kids.

We made a dozen to hang from our dining table chandelier. If you don’t have a hanging light, you can tie the origami cranes to an embroidery hoop and hang that over your table.

Japanese Place Settings

It’s pretty easy to find Japanese themed napkins but not paper plates. But I’m loving how well these palm leaf plates pair with a simple floral dessert plate. And the mini suitcase will accompany all of our travel inspired tablescapes as we explore kids around the world!

You can find all the items plus a few more ideas in my Amazon Idea Store.

Add the Japanese Flag

When representing a country you must use their flag and a table runner seemed an easy way to bring it in. Just print out the flag on letter sized paper and tape them together. Lay down the center of the table and arrange your centerpiece on top.

Add Final Japan Fun Details

The vases of bamboo are a perfect way to frame out the Buddha statue with a few extra paper cranes. I purchased this curly bamboo at IKEA for our Party Like A Panda Birthday and they are still going strong!

I used the salt and paper grinders to anchor the ends of the runner. And even though they really don’t have anything to do with Japan, they look great with the palm plates.

See what you’ve got. Create a few new things together and make learning about Japan FUN for kids! If you create a Japanese inspired table I’d love to see!
