• Candles are an easy way to create a festive holiday mood. Scatter groupings of small tea lights

on mantles and sideboards, or float small candles in a clear bowl filled with tinted water.

• Oven to table dishware means that EVERYONE can spend less time in the kitchen and more time

socializing. Make it festive and fragrant by arranging simple evergreen boughs around the

serving dishes.

• Keep children occupied by including them in the holiday preparations. Provide dishes and

cookware scaled to small hands and help them create kid-sized portions that are fun to

prepare and eat.

• Create personalized place cards by writing the name of each guest on a holiday ornament

placed at their seat.

• The more the merrier! Make unexpected guests feel welcome by using tables that easily expand

with extra leaves and by having extra folding chairs on hand. Keep a few small gifts wrapped and

ready so that everyone feels included.

• Create an inexpensive but dramatic centerpiece by spraying items like branches, pinecones and

acorns with a super shiny gold spray paint. Simply beautiful against a deep, jewel toned tablecloth!

• Short on space? Scatter large throw pillows in festive colors to provide extra seating for guests.
