When it comes to having the family over for holiday dinner, sometimes planning the menu is the easy part.
Whether you're hosting a small group or large for your holiday meal, we have you covered. Here, we'll share a couple of fun ideas for unique holiday tablescapes.
THE KID'S TABLE
To make sure the kids behave during dinner, try putting together something sweet -- and whimsical -- idea for a Candy Cane-inspired table. First, lay out a red table runner, green placemats, red napkins and whimsical holiday plates like these adorable Snowman Plates. For an extra yummy effect, we suggest adding an edible centerpiece using lollipops and candy canes arranged in white pales lined with chocolate rice cereal as "dirt." The best part? This centerpiece also doubles as dessert, since guests can graze right from the pots.
"Think of your table top as an extension of your closet and personal style. Mix what you currently have in your cabinets with special holiday pieces, top basics with flea market finds or borrow complementary patterns from friends and family. Mix colors and patterns to make each person's place setting unique.
