Table Cloth

You do not have to buy a new one. We may use our old collection and add some new ornaments in the edge of the table cloth. Like we could stitch Christmas application on it. My friend even use her simple white table cloth and paints it, she paints a little Christmas tree in the edge of the cloth. You may try to sew colorful ribbons on the edge and many more.

Table Centerpiece

There are many ideas for the table centerpiece. Centerpiece is the main spot of the table and it will be the first attention to your guests. You may try the old-fashioned table centerpiece like fresh flowers, and candles. But you may also try some mix and match centerpiece like candle and cranberries, candle and flowers, flowers and fruits, fresh fruits, beaded fruits, fresh flowers and some cute Christmas ornaments.

Candles centerpiece
You can also use candles to enhance the decoration of your centerpiece. However, keep in concern that if you are using burning candles as the centerpiece during Christmas feast, place them more than an inch apart, so that they don't melt each other. Set red or green taper or pillar candles in brass or wooden candle holders and arrange fresh or artificial pine garland, pine cones and cranberries around the base

Candle and flower centerpiece
You may use oasis floral foam to hold flowers and florist candle holders to hold candles for more safety. You don't want your candles burn the flowers, do you? You may use the flowers from your garden or buy some. Combine the color in fresh Christmas colors.

Fruits, the fresh fruits centerpiece is the most simple and easy table centerpiece that we could try. Choose firm fruits like lemons, oranges, and apples. Place them on a bowl and mix them with pine cones and some greens like mints for accent.
 
Fruits and flowers centerpiece
Place a high vase, arrange some oranges slice on the bottom of the vase and insert the flowers. Add some water in it.

Napkins

You may use disposal napkins and children will love it. Try to make your own napkins ring with Christmas illustration or make edible napkins ring from sugar, or fold the napkins into many creative origami shapes.

For hospitality, you may also add some Christmas surprise for the guests like decorative bon-bons, decorative little fruit cakes on their plates, Christmas socks full of candies or sweets near their plates, cute boxes filled with little presents (like your DIY crafts, little Christmas ornaments such as little Santa's dolls, sugar cookies and many more ), or Christmas cards specially addressed for the guests. And other creative ideas to treat your guests.

Hope you will have a bright and wonderful Christmas this year.

      Fun ideas! It seems I never allow myself to take time to do as much for the holidays as I have in mind, but I am always looking to be inspired in new directions. You've done that, and I thank you.
