The relaxation following our Thanksgiving feast got the best of us and we failed to post the pics of our completed table! Today we will share ways to spice up your holiday get togethers – and all of these tips can be applied to Christmas, Hannukah or any other holiday celebrations.

1. Place Cards ~ the easiest way to spruce up your holiday table is to create place cards for your guests. This not only looks great, but it also relieves any awkwardness associated with deciding where to sit.

You can find creative paper goods such as this at stores like Paper Source, Papyrus, Urbanic and more.

2. Drink Displays ~ let your guests select from a range of beverages by putting them out on a bar or other display. We featured champagne cocktails but also included beer staples for during the Thanksgiving day football games!

3. Let your guests know what they have to look forward to ~ we used small signs on our buffet display to let guests know what was in store following the dinner feast!

Following these simple steps, along with your holiday decor, will ensure a smooth, enjoyable evening for all…and certainly a beautiful table!
