    Layer your look! Start with the tablecloth, then add a runner, plates and napkins. It’s always nice to add a little something special to each place setting; create a keepsake ornament that doubles as a place card or include a custom ribbon-wrapped menu card.

    Add style and flair with decorative charger plates. They’re the finishing touch for your holiday tablescape, or a perfect base for elegant centerpieces. Stain wooden charger plates using your favorite shades of Rit Dye; dye on both sides to create two different looks for your tablescape. Get the full instructions here.

    No matter how many people are sharing your feast, create a sense of intimacy by keeping centerpieces low and lush, and incorporating lots of candlelight.

    Create a mini bar station featuring a festive cocktail for your guests. Round out the display with a galvanized drink dispenser, LED candles and frosted drinkware! Letting guests serve themselves creates opportunity for meeting new friends at the drink station, and frees up the host and hostess to circulate throughout the party. Make the holiday season sparkle with a bright and beautiful Christmas string art sign from the A.C. Moore Craftologists.

    Customize each place setting with the name of your guests! We filled one of our plastic DIY ornaments with fake snow and a mini sisal tree to set the scene for a classic holiday feast. Your guests can take the ornaments home as a souvenir of a memorable evening spent with friends and family. Get the full instructions here.
