When it comes to holiday family gathering we want everything to be perfect.
Here are some fun and simple ways to dress up your dinner table without spending a fortune on materials and supplies:
Perfect Place cards.
Show your guests you care with this simple idea. Fold a napkin into a square and wrap it with a ribbon so it looks like a gift box. Then write your guest’s name on a store-bought tag and tie it on.
2. A splash of color.
Add a splash of color with bright table runner or even a piece of bright cloth placed artfully along the centre of the table. Sprinkle some confetti or place a few candles on it.
3. Create a festive scene.
Pair fresh sprigs of greens in silver buckets with toy deers and pinecones to evoke an entire holiday scene across your table.
4. Time for dessert.
Put out a pot of sweet, steamy cocoa and prepare a variety of everyone’s favorite fixings: marshmallows, cinnamon sticks, whipped cream, toffee bits, pretzel rods, Bailey’s Irish Cream and sprinkles.
5. Christmas Napkin rings.
This would be a fun project to do with your kids. Hold your napkins together with festive handmade paper rings in stripes, dots, zig-zags, and argyle patterns.
6. Snow Candles.
Coat plain red candles in epsom salt to create a snowy look.
7. Waterless snow globes.
These intricate snow globes are surprisingly easy to make. Simply hot glue mini Christmas trees and snowmen from a dollar store to glass jar lids, adding artificial snow and glitter for good measure.
